According to the "Nihon Keizai Shimbun" reported that Sharp CEO Dai Zheng Wu's remarks on Saturday, may confirm that the next generation iPhone will use OLED screen rumors.
Dai Zheng Wu has recently received an honorary doctorate from his alma mater, Taitung University in Taiwan. At the degree award ceremony, Dai Zheng Wu told the audience: "iPhone is constantly improving, and now it will abandon the LTPS screen, turned to OLED screen.I can not predict Apple's OLED screen iPhone will be a big success, but if Apple does not It is a crisis, and a chance, too, to go this route without making a change and losing an opportunity for innovation.
Sharp is Apple's iPhone display supplier, and Dai Zheng Wu is also the parent company of Sharp Sharp Foxconn executives. Therefore, his words have a high degree of credibility.
As of September 2016 fiscal year, Apple revenue since 2001 for the first time since the decline, because the iPhone lack of innovation, weak demand. Compared with the LTPS screen, OLED screen color contrast is higher, the manufacturer can produce flexible, foldable screen. Sharp has to supply LTPS screen Apple, but its OLED production capacity is limited.
Dai Zheng Wu also said that Sharp is building a new OLED factory in Japan, if necessary, will set up factories in the United States to produce OLED screen.
