According to a Chinese source, BOE has managed to get all the certifications required to manufacture OLED display for the iPhone 12 series from Apple. The company was not selected to produce a screen for Apple’s new smartphone series due to some previous problems.
Earlier this year, a claim was made before Apple’s iPhone 12 smartphone series debuted. It was alleged that BOE would be the third company to produce OLED displays for the iPhone 12 series. Due to some negativities, BOE would not produce a screen for the first batch of the iPhone 12 series.
This meant that only LG and Samsung would produce OLED displays for the first batch of the iPhone 12 series. According to the report published by a Chinese source today, BOE has earned the certification required to manufacture OLED displays from Apple and will begin production of OLED displays for iPhone 12 from December.
BOE will be Apple’s third iPhone 12 display maker:
According to the report, Samsung will produce 130 million OLED units in 2021, while LG will produce 40 million and Apple’s new third display manufacturer BOE will produce 10 million units. If the sales of the iPhone 12 go well next year, BOE could increase the production of 10 million to 20 million.
BOE continues to produce OLEDs for Chinese smartphone manufacturers Huawei, Xiaomi, Vivo and Oppo. In addition, the company has also produced A-Si LCD displays for some of Apple’s MacBooks and iPads to date. BOE takes an important place in screen production.
According to data published by RUNTO, in the first half of 2020, the world’s largest panel manufacturers produced a total of 92 million flexible OLED panels. 16.2% of this production, which was 36% more than last year, was made by BOE. Samsung was the leader in production with a share of 71%.
