Digitimes reports that Apple and Samsung will be taking most of the OLED display supply this year. The report says that Apple will be taking 75 million OLED display units from Samsung in 2017 for the iPhone 8. This equates to roughly 14% of overall OLED display production. Samsung is said to take 56% and Apple’s share would’ve been higher if the phone would’ve launched earlier in the year.

It’s also worth noting that Apple will only be releasing one iPhone with an OLED display this year. With the other two having traditional LCD displays.

The report says that OLED display manufacturers won’t be ramping up production until later in the year, which makes it difficult for small manufacturers to source OLED displays for their gadgets.
