Apple’s new line of phones, the “iPhone 12”, will use flexible OLED panels and apparently the company in charge of doing so will be Samsung for three of the four models that will hit the market.

OLED panels for the “iPhone 12”

Four models of the “iPhone 12” are expected to launch in the fall. A leak on May 11 claimed that the lower-end “iPhone 12” and the Max version would use panels from the Chinese manufacturer BOE and Samsung would supply the screens for the Pro model.

But according to some sources at Display Supply Chain Consultants, Apple will continue to use Samsung as its display provider for the 5.4-inch model, as it has been doing for a long time.

This same source suggests that the BOE company may probably be the provider of a future redesigned “iPhone 12s” for 2021; as long as everything goes well with the “iPhone 12 Max”

For its part, the “iPhone 12 Max” will use a flexible 6.1-inch OLED panel from BOE and LG Display, with this it is expected that LG will initially have more orders from the Cupertino company; apparently, BOE expects orders of around 5 to 10 million units for this year 2020.

The “iPhone 12 Pro” and “iPhone 12 Pro Max” are going to use flexible OLED panels from Samsung, and the 6.1-inch and 6.68-inch displays are also said to support XDR (extreme dynamic range) specifications. .

Regarding the resolution, the “iPhone 12” will be 2,340 by 1,080, the “iPhone 12 Max” and the “iPhone 12 Pro” will be 2,532 by 1,170, and the “iPhone 12 Pro Max” will be 2,778 by 1,284 pixels. For pixel density, this equates to 475 ppi for the “iPhone 12”, 460 ppi for the two mediums, and 458 ppi for the “Pro Max” model.

There are some reports where they mention that Apple considered expanding the range of OLED suppliers for the iPhone for a while; At the time, the Chinese company BOE thought that it had been taken as a third option by the company beyond Samsung and LG Display.

By February, BOE was claimed to be gearing up for the production of OLED displays for Apple. Sources report that it will take about six weeks longer than usual, so they will start until the end of July with production, which will delay the launch of the mobile from September to October.

With all these rumors, the technical specifications of each of the models have also been delved into. The base model will have 4 gigs of RAM, 128 and 256 GB storage options, a dual rear camera of up to 64 MPX and a 12 MPX front camera.

The “iPhone 12 Max” will have the same as the base model but with the advantage of having 6 gigabytes of RAM. Costs are apparently going to range from $649 to $749 for the “iPhone 12” and $749 to $849 for the Max model.

The Pro model will include a triple camera setup capable of taking 64 MPX images, as well as a TOF LiDAR camera and a 12 MPX front-facing camera, 6 gig RAM, 512 GB storage, and although they will all support 5G, this model will be the only one with mmWave compatibility.

The price for this model will be between $999 and $1,299 while its Max version will be between $1,099 and $1,399.
