Apple's 2020 iPhone lineup to include smaller 5.4in OLED model

In a twist that hopefully will improve the Apple Watch Series 5 experience, Apple has made a decision to tap Japan Display to supply all of the OLED screens for its next Apple Watch, Reuters is reporting, citing people who claim to have knowledge of its plans.

Japan Display and the group are planning to build an OLED panel plant in China using Japan Display's technology to produce smartphone panels, which need a larger line that normally costs 200 billion yen ($1.8 billion) or more to launch, the sources told Reuters. The iPhone XR now uses LCD display - which is very much less vibrant than an OLED display - compared to the better OLED displays found on the iPhone XS and the XS Max, in order to cut production costs.

Judging from technology ability, Samsung Display is likely to remain the primary OLED panel supplier of Apple in 2020, and it remains to be seen whether LG Display or BOE Technology can obtain OLED panel orders from Apple, the sources said.

DigiTimes is reporting that Apple is going to equip the next-generation iPhone SE2 with a 5.42-inches display. As the moment, Apple is favouring Samsung's Y-Octa display. Added to this is the widely-acknowledged fact that the iPhone XR hasn't sold well - and it has an LCD display.

The Apple Watch is the best-selling wearable out there, with the Series 4 models delivering more advanced health features than any of its predecessors.

Trump tweeted late Monday that Congress will vote on a GOP plan after the elections, ”when Republicans hold the Senate & win back the House.

Cash-strapped Japan Display will be supplying the OLED screens for the upcoming Apple Watch Series 5.

Japan Display's technology uses a slightly different manufacturing method and equipment from Samsung to avoid infringing patents held by the industry leader. After all, it's taken LG a long time to start supplying a small number of OLED iPhone screens.

If things go this way, that could mean a big change from the current iPhone lineup.

The report also reiterates that Apple will launch two new OLED model iPhones and one LCD model iPhone in 2019.
