Well, that's cute.
I've had an OLED phone for 3 years now, good to see Apple finally catching up.

It won't be called OLED. Apple will call it True-lescent (tm) or something, at which point everyone will wonder when android phone will copy Apple.

It's a "retina display", despite my old-ass Nexus 6 having a higher ppi than any iphone ever has had.

Samsung - we'll pay your settlement via a 1% discount on OLED displays.

... also our OLED prices have gone up 1%.

Is Apple just trying to figure out how to get their phone up to that magic $1500 price point?

LCD screens are cheaper to build, while OLED screens reproduce colors much more accurately, but are difficult to produce.

No problem. Apple will just add another couple hundred bucks to the price and the fanboys will rush out even faster.

I saw OLED being the *thing* 15+ years ago.  I'm a dumbass for not target-investing based on that.  A good time would have been several years ago when they cracked the high-definition threshold and both LG and Samsung announced building a billion dollar manufacturing process for the screens.

Don't OLED screens have more of a burn-in problem than LED/LCD screens?

Does your phone manufacturer put oleds in all their phones?


Samsung sure does, but they make their own screens. Apple will get there, eventually... they're small so they have to work harder to catch up to the real giants of industry.
