The first set of the product should be expected in late 2017 or early 2018.
the company JDI sees the production as a long-term investment in Korean “giants.” The Total amount invested in the production is about $ 12.8 billion, while Apple has covered some of the costs.
LG plans to start with the production of 30,000 of flexible OLED-displays a month and increase the production rate to 60 000 per month so as to meet up with the set target. Samsung will start with a larger quantity because she already has a well-established system of production that can cover the figure of 90 000 displays per month. A total of Korean companies are expected to supply about 200,000 panels a month, which would be consistent with the expected sales of the new iPhone.
As at the time of this post, both LG and Samsung are yet to sign a final agreement with Apple.
