Samsung is working on a power-saving OLED display that is being developed specifically for Apple, according to a report.
Samsung is reportedly replacing blue fluorescent materials with a blue phosphorescence that can bring down the OLED display's overall power consumption, reported The Elec, citing Korean Ubi Research analyst Daejeong Yoon.
The components in a material set include capping layers that can alter the optical characteristics of the screen and they can make a difference in the OLED panel's lifespan, brightness, colour etc, according to MacRumors. Each of these components is manufactured by different suppliers who send them to Samsung, which develops the final OLED panel.
Samsung used its M12 OLED material set for the iPhone 15 models while for the iPhone 16 models due this fall will get the new energy-efficient M14 set, according to an earlier report by The Elec.
Citing Korean Ubi Research analyst Daejeong Yoon, The Elec now reports that Samsung's OLED development roadmap has been focused on replacing blue fluorescent materials with a blue phosphorescence that could reduce the overall power consumption of an OLED panel.
"Following the iPhone 16 next year, M14 will be applied to the iPhone 17 in 2025, and the application period for the Apple iPhone OLED material set will increase to two years," The Elec quoted Yoon as saying.
The iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max might come with 6.27 inch and 6.85 inch displays compared to the 6.1 inch display in iPhone 15 Pro and 6.7 inch display in iPhone 15 Pro Max, reported MacRumors, citing sources.
