Apple seeks to adopt China’s BOE Technology for advanced iPhone screens

Apple Inc., the Cupertino-based iPhone manufacturer, had been in an advanced stage talk with China’s OLED (Organic Light Emitting Displays) maker BOE Technology Group Co. Ltd. for its iPhones, as the CA-based iPhone maker had been seeking to reduce its reliance on Samsung Electronics for iPhone’s advanced screens displays, a Nikkei report published on Wednesday, the 21st of August 2019, had unveiled citing sources familiar with the subject-matter.

On top of that, the Japanese Business Daily had also added at its Wednesday’s (August 21st) report that Apple Inc. was expected to decide by the year-end whether to adopt BOE’s OLED technology for its iPhone displays.

In point of fact, Apple Inc., the largest taxpayer in the United States, had been engaged in an aggressive testing of BOE’s much-flexible organic light emission displays, triggering possibilities that the US-based tech behemoth might go ahead to outsource advanced display technology from China for the first time, Nikkei’s Wednesday’s (August 21st) report added citing inside sources who wished to remain anonymous, given the scale of sensitivity of the issue.

Nonetheless, while being asked for comments over the subject-matter, neither Apple Inc., nor Chinese display maker, BOE Technology Group Co. Ltd. responded immediately.
