The upcoming Apple iPhone will use the same OLED panel material as Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10, according to the Korea TheElec website.
You know, the previous year's iPhone X and last year's iPhone XS used a unique panel material (which should have been customized by Apple from Samsung Display), while today's report claims that Apple does not intend to do so again on the iPhone 11.
Samsung Display has been supplying Apple with a custom panel material called LT2 for OLED screens since the start of the iPhone X, the report said. The brand label of OLED panel materials used in Galaxy S10 and Note 10 is M9. Reported that this year's iPhone 11 Pro model will also use M9 material to make OLED screen. That is to say, if you have recently contacted the Galaxy S10 or just released the Galaxy Note 10, the screen performance of the new high-end iPhone will be almost the same.
It is not clear why Apple no longer uses unique panel materials. Perhaps Samsung's standard materials are already in line with Apple's high standards and no longer require special customization. But even if today's rumors are true, it does not mean that the new flagship iPhone's screen ppi will be the same as the Galaxy S10 or Note 10. At present, the screens of iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max are 458ppi, while Galaxy S10 and S10 are 550ppi and 522ppi, while Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 are 401ppi and 498ppi, respectively.
Apple is likely to hold a special event on September 10th (Tuesday) to release this year's iPhone product line. In addition, this year's flagship iPhone is likely to be named iPhone 11 Pro. Let's wait and see what "Pro" features Apple will bring to users.
