How 2018 iPhone X could help Samsung make $22 billion in revenue

Numerous reports have suggested that Apple Inc. will unveil three new iPhones next year. But, even though both the brands rely on each other for their benefits.This year Samsung supplied around 50 million OLED panels to Apple for their iconic product, the iPhone X. And now according to reports, the Korean giant will be shipping around 180 - 200 million OLED panels to Apple next year. He expects Apple to launch two OLED iPhone X successors next September as well as an LCD model.

The OLED displays supplied by Samsung could go towards the rumored "iPhone X Plus", a bigger version of the smartphone released in November.

This report confirms that Samsung will be leading the display market for more years to come.

With LG, BOE and others trying to gain OLED display orders from Apple, you have to wonder if Apple intends to continue to push OLED displays further down the iPhone line and/or begin inching them into higher-end iPads.


The poor iPhone X performance is unlikely to hurt Apple much.

LG Display Co. Ltd. has been reported as a possible supplier of OLED displays for upcoming iPhones, but according to Eric Chiou, an analyst at Taipei-based research company WitsView Technology Corp., the company will be in a position to provide Apple only with an estimated 10 million OLED displays in 2018. If it will be increasing its shipments to Apple by nearly 400% next year, that means it is looking at a revenue of almost $22 billion.

Earlier this year, the A3's yield rate was around 60 percent, but it stood at over 80 percent in the latter half of the year. With a 90 percent yield rate, Samsung Display would be in a position to manufacture approximately 224 million 6-inch panels per year.
