Apple has tightened the technical requirements for "OLED on Silicon", which has now grown to 3,500 ppi. It appears that Coopertino intends to make a truly incredible impression on its first mixed reality device — his debut is expected next year.
OLEDOS uses a silicon substrate for displays instead of traditional glass, the technology is considered optimal for microdisplays designed for virtual and mixed reality devices. Samsung Display and LG Display are expected not to supply OLEDOS-panes for Apple's first gadgets next year, the first shipment has already been awarded to Sony, and its South Korean competitors are expected to join the supply chain in 2024.
It is known that LG Display began work on technology earlier than Samsung, which began to be interested in it from the third quarter of last year, at which time Apple and Meta* approached Samsung Display and offered to engage in research.
According to The Elec, Samsung Display initially treated the technology rather coolly, considering the potential market to be not too large for it, but after the top managers of Samsung's head office adjusted the plans for the management of their panel production unit.
In addition to OLEDOS, Samsung Display plans to develop the LED Silicon technology, which potentially provides the density of pixels up to 6,600 ppi. The company believes that OLEDOS has a lower entry threshold than LEDOS and intends to take the lead in mastering the latest technology by overtaking the development of LG Display and Sony.
