So far the fight was for two. If Apple wanted an OLED display on its iPhone, the American brand had to turn to one of two South Korean companies. Samsung Display remains the company that can withstand the demand of the iPhone and all branded terminals that feature such a screen. LG, on the other hand, is slowly trying to bring strong competition to the market.
While so far we could only look at one of the two to get a quality OLED screen, things are about to change.

According to the DigiTimes Japan Display (JDI) and Sharp will enter the fight for the iPhone of 2018. Japan Display is one of the leading LCD manufacturers and Sharp is now dominated by FoxConn, the company that makes iPhones.
Needless to say, the war around the upcoming iPhone screens will certainly be interesting, but I want to broaden my view on this information.
With JDI and Sharp entering the OLED market strongly, the build value of OLED displays is likely to fall. The more manufacturers there are, the more product there is. Smartphone manufacturers abound eager to introduce OLED displays into their devices.
Remember that Vivo presented a biometric sensor terminal on the device screen. If it seems to you that one piece of information has nothing to do with the other, think again.
Apple no longer relies on Samsung or LG for upcoming iPhone OLED displays
This type of technology only works on screens with OLED technology. In order to make a "Print" of your fingerprint only a few pixels may be connected. LCD technology simply does not allow such functionality.
If the future passes through an on-screen biometric sensor it means that the future will also pass through the OLED displays. I personally prefer OLEDs to typical LCDs. In addition to giving us a bigger contrast and longer life colors, the device's autonomy thanks.
We still do not know which manufacturer will be awarded the screen contracts for the next iPhone, however, we are sure that Samsung and LG are no longer relevant to the industry.
