The rivalry between Samsung and Apple does not mean that both companies don’t need and can’t help each other. According to a new report coming from Korea, Apple needs about 80 million of Samsung’s OLED panels for the incoming iPhone 14 models.

Apple plans to sell lots of units of the Apple iPhone 14 models but needs OLED panels for all four iPhones in the models. For those who don’t already know, the iPhone 14 is expected to come in four models. There will be two iPhone 14 with 6.1-inch displays and two iPhone 14 with 6.7-inch displays.

The report also said that Samsung is expected to start the mass production and deliver the OLED panels to Apple starting in August of this year. And this is just in time for Apple to launch the iPhone 14 by September/October.

In another report, about 38.17 million OLED panels will be used for both the entry-level 6.7-inch iPhone 14 and the highest-end iPhone 14 Pro Max. If this report is true, this means that about 41.83 million OLED panels will be used in the iPhone models with 6.1-inch.

However, Samsung is not the only OLED panel manufacturer that works with Apple. The company also uses BOE for its displays. But the previous report shows that Apple stopped BOE from making OLED panels for its iPhone 13 models due to some technical issues.

It remains to be seen if Apple will turn to BOE for OLED panels that will be used for the iPhone 14 models. For now, it seems Apple needs 80 million OLED panels from Samsung.
