  • Apple Hires Samsung Executive to Lead South Korea Business

Samsung has revealed that Apple's iPhone X OLED display orders have decreased.

Of these, 25 million units will be for the current iPhone X, while the remaining 75 million will be used for the next-gen OLED iPhone models. Successors to the tenth-anniversary edition iPhone X- the 5.8-inch iPhone X and the larger iPhone X are expected to sport OLED displays while the 6.1-inch iPhone will have a LCD panel, according to reports. This will directly lead to the cost of the next iPhone models being reduced. A new report now claims that the LCD iPhone will be priced aggressively in the $799 range.

Last week, we reported that Apple looks to be stuck with using Samsung to source all its OLED panels for the 2018 iPhones. The analyst believes the Cupertino giant could also cut the cost by changing the material used around the radios, incorporating a single rear camera, and removing the force torch. The reasonable price tag will help push the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s users to upgrade to the "iPhone 8S" aka "Jaguar" model.

Ahead of the launch of the iPhone X, the company's offices in Seoul were raided by authorities. Suffice to say Apple has had some problems in Korea of late and with Apple opening their first flagship store in January, they've now hired a new General Manager for Korea this month, first noted by Bloomberg. For the uninitiated, iPhone X was the first Apple phone to boast of an OLED display.

This means that any newly launched model could be offered in conventionally fuelled, hybrid and electric form. What you see in the gallery above is pretty much what you'll get when the iX3 arrives in showrooms in 2020.

If Guggenheim Securities' naming structure holds true, the two OLED iPhones may keep the "X" branding and be called something like the " iPhone X Plus" and "iPhone X2" or "iPhone X (2018)" or just "New iPhone X". According to previous reports, the company will introduce a 6.5-inch OLED model, a 5.8-inch OLED model, and a 6.1-inch LCD model.

Apple will be the biggest victor of the soon-to-be-expected reduced OLED panels price.
