Samsung company is expected to build an OLED iPad production line in 2024


Samsung is apparently planning to construct a production line for larger OLED screens that might be used in an iPad in 2024, but a source on Friday claimed that an OLED iPad could arrive sooner.

According to The Elec, Samsung is planning to build its first Gen 8.5 OLED production line, which might not begin manufacturing panels until 2024 at the earliest. According to the article, the panels are going to be used in devices manufactured by Apple, which, according to the report, has plans to implement OLED displays in its computer and tablet product lines.

There have been a multitude of supply chain stories and expert estimates that point to Apple possibly switching its iPad lineup over to OLED panels at some point in the not too distant future.

A number of these stories have suggested that Apple planned to release an OLED iPad in 2022, while others have indicated that a change to the newer display technology could take place in 2024.

The Elec, on the other hand, seemed to hedge its bets in its report. Samsung’s Gen 8.5 production line will not be completed until 2024, but it claims that Apple’s first OLED tablets will be manufactured using existing production lines from both Samsung and LG’s display business.

Apple has reportedly scrapped plans to offer an OLED-based iPad Air in 2022 due to difficulties with cost, brightness, and durability. Contrary to popular belief, OLED displays on Apple tablets may be on their way sooner than expected.

There’s a good chance that the 2024 iPads with OLED panels will feature a more sophisticated display technology than a previous iteration created on existing production lines, according to The Elec report.

The most recent rumour says that both the 11-inch iPad Pro and the iPad Pro could be updated with OLED displays at the same time.

Raw data from Apple’s supply chain may be found in the Elec. It has a far lower success rate in predicting Apple’s future based on that data. Rather than the former, Friday’s report is a lot more like the latter.
