Apple is reportedly planning to implement OLED panels instead of LCD panels in the forthcoming fourth generation iPhone SE models, and the surprising thing is that these panels will be supplied by a Chinese display supplier BOO.
In the previous iPhone SE models, Apple used LCD screens from JDI (Japan Display Company), and now it brings OLED display panels, which will be a major change for the series, so let’s start the discussion below.
Apple’s iPhone SE 4 OLED panel: all the details
BOO (Beijing Oriental Electronics) was Apple’s main display supplier for several iPhone series and even delivered display panels for iPhone 14 Pro but Apple declined the offer for the iPhone 15 and the OLED iPad.
Due to some quality issues that Apple faced after the launch of the iPhone 14 and a report has already revealed that Samsung Display and LG Display will be supplying display panels for iPhone 15 and iPad.
But as we all know, the iPhone SE series is not the top level of the iPhone series, so the company would use the BOE display, but it does not mean that the BOE display is not good.
It will certainly be good as the supplier makes panels for Pro models, but it costs less than the Pro models’ displays, which will help the company lower its production costs and offer an OLED iPhone as an affordable option.
However, OLED panels are a bit expensive but offer various features such as better contrast, color accuracyAnd energy efficiency than LCD panels, and they also allow for thinner and lighter designs.
The supplier company will deliver 6.1-inch OLED panels for this iPhone SE 4, which is expected to be released in early 2024. And 20 million units are expected for the first year on the market.
The striking thing is that this is the first iPhone model from the iPhone SE series. The phone is expected to have similar features to iPhone 14 in terms of components and design.
