Citing local parts makers, the report said Apple had originally given panel orders to Samsung Display, its sole OLED supplier, under a plan to launch three OLED iPhones next year -- 5.28-, 5.85-, and 6.46-inch models. But the report said the development work for the 5.28-inch model has recently been suspended possibly due to the low marketability of the smaller version.
While dropping the 5.28-inch model, Apple is said to have placed orders with Japan Display for a 6-plus-inch LCD model. The change comes as consumers increasingly prefer the larger display devices for video viewing.
