Apple doubles OLED orders from Samsung, but there's a catch

Samsung Electronics is seen at its office building in Seoul South Korea

Apple will order 100 million panels, three-quarters, or 75 million of which will cater to this year's iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Plus.

Whether or not this will have any effect on the retail price of the next-gen iPhone remains to be seen, but as the price of OLED panels begins to drop, Apple will have a much harder time justifying a four-digit price tag.

Analyst claims that iPhone with LCD screen more affordable in price because of "Apple" the Corporation has made a decision to use for iPhone 9 LCD display instead of OLED, as well as budget hardware.

If the LCD model is $200 cheaper than the OLED models, it will be due to certain cost-cutting measures, the report adds.

A recent report suggested that Samsung is already ramping up to start OLED panel production early. The analyst believes the Cupertino giant could also cut the cost by changing the material used around the radios, incorporating a single rear camera, and removing the force torch.

What do we call the phone that comes after the iPhone X? Especially so after the disappointing sales of the iPhone X, as this guarantees money in Samsung's pocket.

If Guggenheim Securities' naming structure holds true, the two OLED iPhones may keep the "X" branding and be called something like the " iPhone X Plus" and "iPhone X2" or "iPhone X (2018)" or just "New iPhone X".

The 5.8-inch iPhone X codenamed Porsche and the 6.5-inch iPhone X codenamed "Rolls Royce" will bear a resemblance in design when compared to its predecessor. So, hiring Samsung's former vice president would pay off for Apple in Korea and as well as would help to fix the relationship with customers in order to gain a foothold in Korea for Apple.

Apple will be the biggest victor of the soon-to-be-expected reduced OLED panels price. Apple leaped from the iPhone 7 in 2016 to iPhone 8 and iPhone X (pronounced "ten") in 2017, skipping the iPhone 9 and introducing Roman numerals into the mix.
