Samsung could muster 40 million OLED panels for iPhones next year

Samsung may be the strong arm in the displays industry, especially in OLED panels. It’s expected to make some 239 million this year just for its own purposes. Digitimes is estimating 560 million panels to be made for Samsung and other customers by 2019.

With regards to talk of Samsung providing AMOLED displays to Apple for next year’s iPhone, it seems that the company will be sharing just enough for a certain variant (or two) of it. 40 million is the target for 2017, followed by 80 million units in 2018 and 120 million in 2019.

That 40 million number is only about half of a good year’s iPhone sales. It leads us to believe that a previous rumor that keeps the OLED panels over on the larger 5.5-inch models. But remember that other manufacturers are in a tizzy to produce screens for Apple in the coming years.

But that’s next year and we’re still playing in 2016.
