Even though a good number of these displays went to Samsung phones, some went to some Chinese manufacturers who have been adopting OLED displays.

A deal with Apple

Samsung Display is not working with the Chinese manufacturers only as it is rumored that the company will be working with Apple in the future. Rumors have it that Samsung and Apple have reached an agreement that will see the Korean electronics company supply Apple with OLED displays for its next iPhones. Samsung has already invested in a new production facility to ensure it supplies Apple with all the displays it needs.

This is not the first time Apple and Samsung have worked together, Samsung has supplied Apple with processors before so they have a good business relationship even with the many lawsuits against each other.
