Today, it is reported that Apple has secretly met Samsung and LG to discuss the supply of new iPhone screens next year, after it was reported that BOE, a domestic supplier, is likely to supply OLED screens for apple.
According to the latest news, BOE is unlikely to become a supplier of OLED panels for Apple mobile phones in 2020.
BOE has emerged as a potential supplier of 6.1-inch OLED panels because of its involvement in iPhone development projects.
However, due to the slow progress in development and production, it is likely that BOE will not be listed as a supplier this time.
Judging from the current situation, BOE is likely to be out of the game. LG and Samsung, two Korean suppliers, continue to be Apple's OLED screen suppliers.
And because LG is relatively backward (technology and production capacity) in small and medium-sized OLED screens, Samsung will continue to take most orders for OLED screens.
Besides,According to industry sources, Apple will release 5.4-inch, 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch new iPhones in the autumn of 2020, which are expected to use three different sizes of OLED panels.
Apple will adjust the high-end new iPhone screen released in 2020, from the original 5.8 inch and 6.5 inch to 5.4 inch and 6.7 inch.
That is to say, the size gap between the iPhone 12 pro and the iPhone 12 Pro Max will be larger, which will be more conducive to distinguish users and not allow their own products to continue to form indirect competition.
It is understood that Samsung display company will become the only supplier of 5.4-inch and 6.7-inch OLED panels. Specifically, the company will provide a unit touch type flexible OLED panel.
The unit touch type flexible OLED panel will be lighter and thinner,At the same time, the screen will support Samsung y-octa technology, which allows the touch screen circuit to be built directly on the OLED panel, thus making the display panel thinner and reducing production costs.
In addition, the industry also revealed that although there are still three sizes of new iPhones next year, it is likely to release more than four new iPhone models next year, because Apple plans to release a model that supports 5g network.
What is worth mentioning is that the signal problem which has been sped up by users is likely to be solved to a certain extent in the iPhone 12 series.
According to some sources, the new iPhone will switch to Qualcomm baseband in 2020. In the first half of this year, apple settled with Qualcomm and reached a cooperation agreement.
Besides,Frequency antenna is also an important factor that affects the reception ability of mobile phone.
According to foreign media, the new iPhone will upgrade its antenna to LCP soft board in 2020. The number of upgraded antennas will be greatly increased, and the requirements for clearance area will be reduced.
Apple will carry three LCPs for the new iPhone, and support millimeter wave high frequency band, so the network speed will be significantly improved.
In my opinion, there are problems in the signals of recent generations of iPhones. Many Apple phone users around me have transferred to the Android camp because of the signal problems, and the use experience has been greatly improved.
If Apple wants to prevent users from fleeing, next year's iPhone upgrade must focus on 5g signals.
I believe Apple has enough technology, resources and confidence to solve the signal problem.
