The upcoming iPhone 8 is rumoured to have OLED display. The company's competitors including Samsung has already used it in their version of smartphones. But when it comes to setting trends in phones, Apple goes far ahead. And reports suggest that firms are bulking up OLED supplies keeping a tight vigil on the upcoming iPhone 8 release.
Digitimes reported that some Chinese companies are expecting OLED supplies to go dry as Apple is making mass purchases and they have rushed to secure that small and middle OLED panel production won't go dark. Reports also say that the increased demand for OLED might cause shortages in the market.
Samsung is going to be Apple's main OLED supplier this year, but the mass demand of iPhone maker may go beyond Samsung's said limit.
Apple is said to release three phones this year, mainly iPhone 8 with OLED display and two versions of iPhone 7 with LCD display.
As mainstream smartphones' display go for a massive change from 5 inches to 5.5 inches, LCD display demand will also remain tight this year.
