LG is reportedly struggling to meet Apple's demand for iPhone OLED displays

The iPhone X offers a lot of value for $1,000 but it's still too expensive for many people

In July past year, Apple had concerns that Samsung's supply of OLED displays would be tight, so it struck up talks with LG Display to invest between $1.75 billion and $2.6 billion in the company's OLED production lines, as long as LG can dedicate production lines exclusively to Apple's orders. One report stated that Apple was desperately waiting for LG to start supplying the Californian giant with OLED panels for its next iPhone lineup.

Apple is having difficulty with buying OLED displays for iPhone X. the line of the American manufacturer are heavily dependent on the South Korean partner Samsung. Samsung will already be commanding a very high price for its OLED screens since they will be produced to the standard that Apple wants and because of its exclusive supplier status, the Korean giant will have absolute freedom over pricing.

If that is indeed the case, then not only will Apple need to rely on Samsung once again this year, it will be placing bigger orders due to not one, but two new iPhones requiring OLED panels. Tokyo-based consultancy Fomalhaut Techno Solutions claims that Samsung's OLED display likely accounts for $97 of the $376 that it costs to build an iPhone X, which pushes the price up for consumers.

A few months Apple is in search of a company that can supply quality OLED displays. According to The Wall Street Journal reports, LG Display which is to be used by Apple as a second source of its OLED (organic light-emitting diode) screens in its new phones, is facing manufacturing disorders.

It's worth noting that most suppliers don't go through that extra step, and now, Apple is reportedly torn about whether LG Display should provide screens.
