Samsung may soon face increased competition from its display production rivals, with a report claiming LG Display and other manufacturers are stepping up their OLED panel efforts to try and secure future orders from Apple to supply screen components for future iPhones.
Apple and LG Display are allegedly finalizing talks on an OLED supply deal, which could see the latter provide panels for a rumored 6.5-inch iPhone, which is believed to be a jumbo-sized version of the iPhone X.

This week, save $150 on LG's 27" 5K Monitor (27MD5KB-B) for 2016 and 2017 MacBook Pros with free expedited shipping and no sales tax on orders shipped outside NY and NJ.

Major Chinese display maker BOE is reportedly investing billions into OLED production lines in an attempt to win orders from Apple, which currently relies exclusively on Samsung panels for the iPhone X.
Following revelations that Samsung could be the sole supplier of OLED displays for a next-generation "iPhone 8" handset, a report late Wednesday reaffirms previous claims that Apple's effort to diversify its supply chain with panels from LG is unlikely to bear fruit before 2019.
Google is reportedly in talks to invest over $876 million in LG Display to secure a source of OLED panels, likely for its Pixel phones — perhaps signalling more intense competition with Apple's iPhone, as well as third parties using Google's Android operating system.
With the first preorders now arriving in the hands of customers, AppleInsider offers a closer look at LG's gorgeous 27-inch UltraFine 5K Display, featuring Thunderbolt 3 connectivity to take advantage of Apple's latest MacBook Pros.
While it isn't branded as an Apple display, the LG UltraFine 4K Display is quite Apple-like, featuring a minimalist design, high-quality ultra high-resolution screen, and dead-simple plug-and-play connectivity. It's a fantastic choice and a gorgeous display if you have a USB-C equipped MacBook, with a few caveats: it lessens the appeal of the MacBook Pro's Touch Bar and Touch ID, and it doesn't utilize Thunderbolt 3.
Apple is said to be exploring more than 10 potential prototype models in anticipation of next year's 10th anniversary of the iPhone, with the company eyeing an OLED-display curved "iPhone 8" for launch in 2017.
