Apple supposedly picked LG Display as its 2nd provider for natural light-emitting diode (OLED) screens utilized in the upcoming iPhone XS and XS Max

Apple offered the South Korean business the thumbs-up after its OLED panels passed the iPhone maker’s quality tests, according to Reuters, which pointed out a post in the South Korea- based Electronic Times that utilized an unknown source.

The option would make Apple less reliant on Samsung, the sole source of screens for the iPhone X (which Apple is no longer selling) and its primary competitor in the smart device market.

Neither Apple nor LG Display right away reacted to ask for remark.

In June, it was reported that LG might provide 2 million to 4 million OLED screens toApple This followed a previous report that LG was having a hard time to produce the screens and Apple was reassessing the collaboration.

The iPhone XR, the “budget” design revealed by Apple on Wednesday, utilizes an LCD screen rather of OLED.
