Samsung to cut OLED panel production on low iPhone X demand - report

Tuesday 20 February 2018 | 09:41 CET | News
Samsung plans to slash production at its OLED panel plant in response to customer Apple's decision to reduce output of the iPhone X following weak demand, Nikkei reports. Samsung Display now plans to manufacture organic light-emitting diode panels for 20 million or fewer iPhones at its South Chungcheong site in the January-March quarter of 2018. The initial goal was to supply panels for 45-50 million iPhones.
