 Apple is negotiating with OLEDs exclusive supplier Samsung for price cuts.


These sources say the demand for the price reduction is not surprising for the mobile phone industry, as the OLED panel accounts for the 1/3 of the total production cost of iPhoneX and is considered to be the key factor in the downturn in the sales of the first apple OLED product. Apples current negotiating move seems both gratifying and worrying. On the positive side, Apple will order more components from Samsung. Apple may buy 100 million OLED panels to SamsungDisplay in 2018, of which 25 million are used on the current iPhoneX, and the rest of the 75 million OLED panels are for the next generation that is released in 2018, the 5.8 inch model and the 6.5 inch model. On the negative side, Apples attempt to let the two competitors compete for the companys contract seems to have faced obstacles. Apple originally planned to split the OLED order of iPhone this year between Samsung and LG, but a recent report shows that LG has encountered resistance in achieving its production goals. The Wall Street Journal reported that it is uncertain whether LG will become a minority supplier of OLED panels this year. There are reports that apple is seeking to reduce the price of the OLED panel from $110 to $100. This year, apple is expected to launch three new iPhone, 5.8 inch iPhoneX successors, 6.5 inch iPhoneXPlus and a cheaper 6.1 inch model (similar to the design, but with a LCD screen).
