According to a report by Ross Young of Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC), the iPhone 14 series will feature screen panels made by Samsung Display. The report suggests that Apple has sourced 82 percent of the panels for the iPhone 14 series from Samsung, 12 percent from LG Display and the remaining 6 percent from BOE. Furthermore, the iPhone 14 Pro Max models are speculated to feature only Samsung panels. Young also mentioned that Chinese manufacturer BOE may be limited to non-Pro models.
According to GSMArena Report Spotted by ANI, the iPhone 14 series will primarily feature screens from Samsung Display. LG Display and BOE are also supplying screens for Apple’s upcoming iPhone models. Additionally, the iPhone 14 Max Pro may initially only have Samsung panels as LG is said to be struggling to keep up with demand.
LG is expected to provide its displays from September. Meanwhile, BOE is limited to providing screens for non-pro units. The report noted that Samsung had a similar share for the iPhone 13 series when it provided 83 percent of all panels.
Young suggested in the DSCC report that Apple is preparing to buy at least 34 million units for the first three months of iPhone 14 sales.
Apple will hold a special launch event on September 7 where we can see the arrival of the iPhone 14 series, Watch Series 8 and new iPad models.
