Not all iPhones to have OLED screens until 2018, says analyst

TAIPEI -- Only one iPhone model will have an advanced organic light-emitting diode display in 2017, as Apple Inc. is forced to wait until 2018 to roll out the new technology for all its new handsets due to supply constraints, according to an executive with IHS DisplaySearch.

The remark by David Hsieh, a senior director at IHS DisplaySearch, comes as Apple and Chinese smartphone makers jostle to deliver new handsets with OLED screens, looking to emulate the success that Samsung Electronics has had with its premium gadgets equipped with curved OLED displays.
