Although known on the world stage as the biggest rivals, Apple and Samsung virtually depend on each other. A striking example of how and to what extent are they dependent on others shows the demand for OLED screens.
As it is known, Samsung is the leading company in the production of OLED screens. This technology is especially popular with smartphone manufacturers of the new generation. Representative of that generation is Apple’s popular iPhone X. So, in fact, one produces the screens that use the devices of others. All this while the direct and biggest competition on the market.
However, the low demand, or Apple’s failure to popularize their banners, the popular X, reflects on Samsung’s earnings. Namely, for the first quarter of the year will reduce the production of OLED panels almost double. The production was planned to meet the needs of 40-45 million iPhone devices. However, the actual situation is that only “20 million” will be produced.
This reduction in production will not affect too much of a giant company of that rank. But no company has indifferently accepted the loss. So, information says, that Samsung is interested in finding another customer next to Apple.
