LG Display picked as main display supplier for iPhone 6

updated 01:22 pm EDT, Tue August 19, 2014

Wins out over Samsung, Sharp, Japan Display

Apple has picked LG Display as its primary supplier of display panels for the iPhone 6, according to supply chain sources cited by Chinese site Feng.com. The firm is said to have beat out Samsung, Sharp, and Japan Display for the bulk of orders. Otherwise, however, it's not specified what the balance will be. The implication is also that Sharp is indeed in the supply chain, despite a May report claiming it had been dropped in favor of Innolux due to quality control problems.

All of the above-mentioned companies have supplied Apple, to greater or lesser extents. LG though has been increasingly favored when it comes to display technology, likely because Apple has been trying to distance itself from Samsung, and LG is one of the few firms that can manufacture on the scales needed for iPhones and iPads.
