This is why Google just handed over manufacturing of the Pixel 2 XL to LG. Google wants to spend nearly a billion dollars with LG Display to secure OLED panels for its Pixel 2 phones.
I wonder if we'll see a lawsuit because some units got Samsung displays while others got Emerson.
>He suspects that the OLED displays for the "iPhone 8" cost Apple between $120 and $130 per unit — well beyond the $45 to $55 per unit Apple is said to pay for the iPhone 7 Plus 5.5-inch LCD screen.
Remember that super expensive iphone you just had to have? Well, take that price and double it for the new new one.
This is a good move for future Apple devices. Samsung makes better screens.
Not sure why everyone's pissy about this.
Because people have been pointing this out... what this article calls the iPhone 8 is the iPhone X, which has the OLED screen while the 8 doesn't. This article is from before the Apple announcement, so the naming was just guessing on their part.
They are sitting on a pile of cash, they should use some of that money to build some of their own manufacturing.
