Apple iPhone 7

According to the president of the company responsible for the current LTPS (low-temperature poly-silicon) displays of iPhone 7, Sharp, it’s time for Apple to switch to OLED (organic light-emitting diode) display to save itself from the decline of its phone sales.

By switching to OLED, the iPhone will even have a more punchy display like the Samsung flagships plus incredibly deep blacks and it’s also energy efficient.

“The iPhone has been evolving and now it is switching from LTPS (low-temperature poly-silicon) to OLED panels. We don’t know whether Apple’s OLED iPhones will be a hit, but if Apple doesn’t walk down this path and transform itself, there will be no innovation. It is a crisis but it is also an opportunity.”-Tai Jeng-wu, president, Sharp

In order to address the demand for it, Sharp is already looking into building new factories in Japan and, if needed, in the US too.
