Apple is trying in every way to bring better technology to the iPhones and it seems that it could be making use of a new technology from Samsung for the phone’s display screen. This involves cheaper OLED screens that Apple will make way for the 2019 iPhones. Currently, the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max have LED screens and if the reports turn out to be true, it could soon replace with the OLED screens next year.
The OLED panels will also come with an integrated touch panel, which is currently housed separately in the 2018 iPhones. With this, Apple is likely to save a lot of money in production of 2019 iPhones and also make them much lighter which is definitely a plus point.
Reports say that Samsung has already started mass producing these OLED panels which adhere to the stringent quality standards of Apple. These OLED displays are supposedly called ‘Y-OCTA’ displays and they will all have the touch panel built-in which will directly go on to the frame of the 2019 iPhones.
These iPhones could also include iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max as the Y-OCTA displays are currently short in supply and have been reserved for only until 2019. So there is a strong indication that we could be having an iPhone with touch-panel integrated OLED display by the end of 2019.
The new iPhones will be very similar in design and specification to the 2018 iPhones. Still, we can hope to have triple-lens camera and also a completely refreshed user interface on iOS 13.
