Apple introduces OLED (organic light-emitting diode) integrated touch screens on all iPhone models which will be launched next year. The news arrives after the touch integrated OLED panels, particularly for smartphones, are growing in popularity within the global display market.
The Cupertino based giant has put an order for tactile integrated OLED displays for the 2021 iPhone series according to a new article. In other words, the iPhones releasing next year will feature the latest, integrated touch panels. For those unfamiliar, the OLED display is a version of a touch-activated OLED screen. Although traditional OLEDs add a touch sensor film to the panel, this touch sensor is built into the panel itself in the integrated version.
Meaning, you do not need to install a separate sheet. Therefore the integrated touch screens are smaller than the standard models. This also offers more versatility to OEMs and vendors for their products while also being more cost-effective. So far, Apple has been using the conventional displays that have added touch movie to them, but that may change soon with the launch of the new iPhone 12 series later this year.
Leaks have announced the different sizes for the iPhone 12 lineup including a 5.4 inch, 6.1 inches, and 6.7-inch screen. Samsung Display comes with the latest touch-optimized OLEDs. Notably, the price of these displays is supposed to be competitive and the South Korean brand that is already roping in a big customer like Apple would also only improve the popularity of the product within the industry.
