According to the Korean edition of ET News, Apple has engaged LG as a display supplier for the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max. Before this, Samsung had an exclusive supply.
Most likely, you will not notice the difference between the matrices of the two different manufacturers – although the end manufacturer previously indicated Samsung, the displays were made according to Apple’s technical specifications, which is why there was a big difference between the flagship Galaxy and iPhones.
Attracting a new supplier indicates increased competition, so the displays themselves for Apple may end up being cheaper and iPhones even more marginal.
LG Display was initially supposed to be involved in the production of matrices for 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max, but there were some problems with production. However, the company has now received final approval from Apple to launch in a series. At the same time, according to the publication, Samsung is gradually reducing its share.
The displays for the base iPhone 14 and 14 Plus are supplied by the Chinese company BOE.
It is unknown how large LG’s share will be and when the first devices with displays from the Korean company will appear on sale. Recently it became known that one of the factories of Foxconn, an iPhone assembler, got up due to covid. In this regard, the supply of both “plugs” has shifted by 5-6 weeks.
