Foxconn Display Factory to Supply Apple With OLED Panels?

Posted by · 11096 views · Translate

A new report from Nikkan Kogyo Shimbun, a leading newspaper in Japan, says that Foxconn is going to use its new display factory to provide Apple with OLED displays.

Translating the report, GforGames says that the current goal is for OLED panels to enter limited production in 2016. Foxconn Japan RD Co. will apparently handle research in manufacturing, technology and equipment of OLED displays.

According to the source, these OLED displays will be used for smartphones and wearables. This raises quite a few important question in regards to Apple’s future plans, not only because LG is currently the main supplier of panels for the iWatch (Apple’s only wearable at this point), but also due to the fact that so far Apple has only used LCD displays in the production of its iPhones.

Interestingly, the report also specifies that Foxconn is looking to develop a 5-inch 400 ppi smartphone display.

In November, it was revealed that Foxconn is planning to spend $2.6 billion over the next two years on its new factory in Taiwan that will supply displays exclusively for a client, very likely Apple. Details are still developing. You can follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates.
