Apple will turn to BOE to supply the OLED panels for next year’s iPhone SE 4, per supply chain sources.
BOE was reportedly dropped from the supply for the iPhone 15 and the OLED iPad due to reported quality concerns on Cupertino’s side. Samsung Display and LG Display will supply those displays.
The iPhone SE 4 will inherit the iPhone 14 body and some of its components, which means it will be the first OLED SE model. It will use a 6.1-inch LTPS (low-temperature polycrystalline silicon) TFT (thin film transistor) display, which is easier to produce than the LTPO (low-temperature polycrystalline oxide) panels on the Pro models.
The part is rumored to cost around $40, more than twice less than the $100 displays for the Pro models.
