Samsung Built Dam Around Dynamic Island on iPhone 14 Pro [Report]

At the request of Apple, Samsung built a dam around the Dynamic Island pill-shaped cutout on the iPhone 14 Pro, according to a new report from The Elec.

The dam was built using inkjet equipment to protect the thin film encapsulation of the OLED display from damage.

To make a hole (hole) for the front camera lens, etc. at the top of the OLED screen, a hole must be drilled in the post-process (module process). It can be. If the thin film encapsulation is damaged, the OLED is exposed to moisture and oxygen, and the life span of the product is drastically shortened.

For this reason, Samsung Display is known to have used inkjet equipment to build a dam that separates the hole from the rest of the area after making thin film encapsulation and touch electrodes in the iPhone 14 Pro lineup OLED, and to flatten areas with uneven heights. Samsung Display was able to carry out this process using a laser rather than inkjet equipment, but it is said that Apple preferred the inkjet method.

Equipment used in the process was purportedly manufactured by SEMES, a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics. Notably, LG is said to have used the same method for its production of iPhone 14 Pro displays.
