Apple has from the beginning of the autumn 2017 notification was part of the model using an organic EL plan to each affiliate. In 2018, as a precondition to prepare emergency-related companies are forced to adjust the plan.

Apple is said to have contacted LG and Samsung back in December 2015 about moving up the timetable.

Notably, the new OLED display will reportedly be reserved for just some high-end models.

They should release it in the iPhone 7, stop messing around .. Meanwhile I'll be enjoying my GS7 edge coming from an iPhone 6S until apple decides to finally do some innovating :/

They have done something innovating (hint hint on the huge list of stuff featured in the 6s) whereas other companies continue to copy as well. It's not coming into iPhone 7 because Apple has so much to handle and probably test before actually finding ways to finally get their hands on more material they can eventually focus on. This is coming from a former galaxy user that has moved on since 2013.

Actually I also was a former Galaxy user and hated it finally Samsung has overcome their old terrible product line up and innovated, the 6S was not innovation it was crappy features that had no real meaning other than the camera improvements. I'm not switching away from iOS forever but I definitely am until apple actually makes a compelling product to buy, I have all apple products currently and love apple but they just messed up this year in terms of their iPhone
