Recently we heard that Sharp is now planning to spend more than $566 million on OLED screen technology. One wonders why it is so keen in this investment well our recent sources tell us that Apple is gearing up Sharp to be its key supplier for OLED screens to be used in its future iPhone.

If this really happens to be true and Sharp does prove to be a potential supplier of these OLED screens which are going to be incorporated in to the iPhone for the first time then Sharp has a lot to maintain this deal. Sharp will have to sustain the ability of meeting Apple’s strict quality control system as well as keep up with demand for the volume of such OLED screens.
The keenness expressed by Sharp to spend a tremendous amount on this OLED screen technology is a clear sign that the company sees a big Apple contract dangling in front of it eyes. However one prevalent problem is the time scale. Apple is rumored to release iPhone 8 on its 10th anniversary nearly this time next year.
This phone is thought to have an OLED screen and if it is really the case than it would be pretty difficult for sharp as looking at the supply constraints of OLED screens all over the world. A company supplying OLED good enough in number to meet Apple’s demands is no easy job,however, things are good for Sharp because Apple has no choice but to revert to OLED screens no matter when this is because Samsung is shipping absolutely gorgeous OLED screens in to its flag ship models and the rest of the industry is also following the trend.
LCD screens have been maintained by Apple for more than we can imagine. OLED offers much more including incredible colors, efficient power management and so on. Last note, we just can’t wait to get our hands on a black iPhone having an OLED display.
