Apple Might Launch Smaller-Sized iPhones!

The report notes that Apple will opt for three OLED display sizes - 5.42-inch, 6.06-inch, and 6.67-inch - supplied by either Samsung or LG.

Appealing for help amidst weakening sales, Japan Display is said to be aiming for a total capital increase of 110 billion yen ($990 million) to play catch-up in the organic light-emitting diode (OLED) department and ensure yield. Unless we're talking about Samsung, which has managed to exclusively take care of the iPhone X, XS, and XS Max OLED panels while maintaining an impressively high standard of quality and performance. However, Apple will continue with the current sizes for the 2019 models, the report added with iPhones - of 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch screen sizes - featuring OLED displays and one LCD display model offering the 6.1-inch screen.

Indeed, Samsung Display, which is a subsidiary of Samsung, the company's top rival in smartphones, is the sole supplier for OLED screens in its iPhones.

Meanwhile on Monday, CNBC reported that this year's iPhone lineup could have "significantly more battery capacity", according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

By the looks of things, the iPhone XR, which itself will give up on LCD for OLED next year, will feature a slightly smaller screen, whereas the Max will actually come with a larger panel.

Even though there's absolutely nothing wrong with the Apple Watch Series 4 screen, supply chain competition is always good, generally driving progress and innovation forward at a much faster pace than when a company holds a monopoly on one or several essential components.

Japan Display, formed in 2012 in a government-backedmerger of the ailing display units of Sony Corp, Toshiba Corp and Hitachi Ltd, flagged its fifth straight year of net losses in February.

Digitimes also claims that its sources say that all of the new iPhones will be OLED by 2020, which is in line with other rumours. This is a way of making the display thinner while also trimming costs. But is this really the iPhone SE 2 though?
