Samsung Slashes OLED Production on Slow iPhone X Sales

Samsung Slashes OLED Production on Slow iPhone X Sales

Samsung has yet to confirm production targets for the April-June period. But Samsung had an even bigger fall in smartphone sales - down 4.4 percent from a year ago to 74.1 million - and was knocked off its bestselling perch by Apple, according to a report from data analytics firm IDC.

However, it also carried a premium price tag, as Apple opted to add the iPhone X to a new position at the top of its smartphone line-up.

It's what we came here and worked hard for, to put ourselves in position for a gold medal". Just like that, their practice paid off. The game was over at that point.

Evidence is mounting that the iPhone X is a bust. The original target was for around 45 million to 50 million iPhone X displays, reports Nikkei. It means we could see more mid-range Android smartphones with OLED screens in the near future. Because of poor iPhone X sales, Samsung will see a year-on-year decline in profits, instead of the expected windfall. Earlier reports had indicated that, rather than continue to rely exclusively on Samsung Display for OLED supplies, the Cupertino firm was looking to hedge its bets and source panels from multiple providers. That Samsung display is by far the most costly component in Apple's smartphone. That's expected to form the entry-point into Apple's 2018 iPhone range as the cheapest model.

According to reports back in mid-2017, indeed, Apple was investing in LG Display's OLED production to bring the technology up to speed for its needs. The issue of battery throttling did not impact the iPhone demand in Korea and this was in Apple's favor by a huge margin.

In an earnings call with investors earlier this month, Cook shrugged off sales concerns and declared that the iPhone X has set Apple up "for the next decade."

While the Nikkei has reported on more than one occasion the news that demand for Apple's iPhoneX model is much weaker than anticipated, there has been no verification of this from the tech innovator, nor its suppliers. "Despite innovative designs, such as the rotating bezels and circular screens employed by other vendors, Apple has pulled far ahead as it continues to focus on its core iPhone user base".
