Earlier this year, it was rumored that Apple would negotiate with the BOE to become the third OLED screen supplier in the iPhone 12 series before even the iPhone 12 family appeared. However, only Samsung and LG remained in the supply chain, and the BOE had some quality control issues, and the deal was postponed until those issues were resolved.
Industry analysts now say that the Bank of England is finally certified and will soon begin manufacturing OLED panels for Apple’s iPhone 12 family. It is estimated that Samsung will produce about 130 million units in 2021 and LG and BOE will settle 40 million and 10 million units, respectively.
But if everything goes well with next year’s iPhone 12 sales, which means orders can reach up to 20 million units. This seems to be the company’s first step, accounting for more than 40% of the global OLED panel market, which is projected to reach $ 49.7 billion in 2024.
