The order consists of between 3 and 4 million OLED panels, Digitimes reports, with the contract also including an order for approximately 20 million LCD smartphone panels. Recent rumors about the agreement put the OLED display order in the ballpark of 3 to 5 million panels.
The OLED panels in question will be produced in LG Display’s E6 6G fabrication plant in Paju, South Korea. The report adds that, as the yield rate for the facility improves, it is likely that LG Display will secure the majority of 6.5-inch OLED panel orders from Apple in 2019. If secured, this would help increase the firm’s OLED panel shipments to 10 million units per annum.
