It is understood that Samsung Display will be the sole supplier of 5.4-inch and 6.7-inch OLED panels. Specifically, it will supply on-cell touch flexible OLED panels. This panel is basically an OLED panel that has touch function built in. Touch sensor is placed on top of thin film encapsulation inside of a panel. Touch function in the past attaches a touch film on a panel. Because on-cell touch OLED panel does not require a separate film, it can lead to a thinner display and reduce production cost.
Samsung Display demonstrated successful commercialization of its OLED panel with ‘Y-OCTA’ technology when it supplied the panel to Samsung Electronics. This purportedly convinced Apple to use the panel for iPhone.
