Apple iPhones not switching to AMOLED panels anytime soon: Report

iPhone 6s

There has been talk going around in the #Apple universe that the company is probably looking to replace LCD panels from the #iPhone models with AMOLED displays. However, a new report mentions that this might not happen anytime soon as Apple wants the technology to be perfect before replacing the conventional LCD panels.

This tells us that Apple is adopting a wait and watch policy, which is excellent news as it tells us that the company is not looking to sacrifice on quality. AMOLED panels are used on Samsung’s Galaxy models and comes with its own pros and cons.

The news comes from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who has been spot on about Apple news and leaks before. He went on to say that Apple will not use AMOLED displays on the iPhones until 2018 at least, which effectively rules out its presence on next year’s iPhone 7 and 7 Plus flagships. Given the sort of advancements made by Apple in the mobile industry, we won’t be surprised if there are more display enhancements made to the upcoming LCD panels, so the company won’t be short on innovation.
