According to the latest rumors, Apple has made an order to Samsung for 100 million 5.5" Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) panels in 2017. The displays are supposedly going to create their way to the 2017 iPhone Plus. The timing for the order indicates that the Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) screens will skip the iPhone 7 and only create it to the iPhone 7S.

The information comes from a source cited by the Chinese edition of the WSJ and it also points out that Samsung has set aside a production line at its Asan plant for the order. While the information about future iPhone models using a Samsung-made Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) panel is not new, it was previously anticipated to happen in 2018, not a year earlier.

KGI's analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has a mixed track record regarding Apple rumors, also shares similar information. However, he is quite certain that the 2017 iPhone Plus will have a 5.8" display.

The reason for Apple's decision to go Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) could be becautilize currently, its production cost is lower than LCD's. It'll be also fascinating to see if rumors surface regarding Apple issuing a request to LG to manufacture Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) panels as a fallback. Up until now, the Korean company has been a key Apple partner in making panels for the iPhone.
