Last year's iPhone X was the first OLED phone Apple ever released, and rumors claim that this year, the company is looking to release two more iPhones with OLED displays. Obviously, this second device means that Apple is going to need a lot more OLED panels, and as such, it's been looking to diversify its screen suppliers.

Why iPhone X “weak demand” hits Samsung more than Apple

Slashed iPhone X production has forced Samsung to cut its OLED output, according to new reports out of South Korea, highlighting the supply chain impact that Apple's focus on device pricing over sales volume has already had in 2018.
