Apple to use OLED Panels for Future iPhones, says Sharp’s President


Apple tries to do different every year with its devices. This year Apple introduced new stuff in iPhones like removing the headphone jack, dual cameras, more RAM etc. In the 2016 MacBook also, Apple did unique things like removing Standard USB Port, adding a Touch bar etc. Well, in case you don’t know, Apple will turn 10 next year and the fans surely deserve a great product, maybe the best iPhone ever! Apple too will try to make this occasion more special. As we know, Apple’s latest iPhones may be new but they still use the old LCD panels. But, a new statement by the president of SHARP ( the company that made Sharp Aquos) claims that Apple will finally do something new with the screen. The president has claimed that Apple will finally use the OLED panels on the 2017’s iPhones!

Nikkei Asian Reviews recently said that there will be 3 different variants of iPhone 8 i.e. 4.7, 5 and 5.5-inch. Well, Sharp is the company that provides display panels to Apple. Here is what Tai Jeng-Wu , the president of Sharp said –

The iPhone has been evolving and now it is switching from LTPS (low-temperature poly silicon) to OLED panels.We don’t know whether Apple’s OLED iPhones will be a hit, but if Apple doesn’t walk down this path and transform itself, there will be no innovation. It is a crisis but it is also an opportunity.


Since the present displays on iPhones are produced by Sharp, new factories will be set up for the OLED panels.

We are now building a new [OLED] facility in Japan. We can make [OLED panels] in the U.S. too.If our key customer demands us to manufacture in the U.S., is it possible for us not to do so?

Well, what are your thoughts on this? I think it is time for Apple to finally change the displays. Do let us know your opinions in the comments section. :D
