In a note written to Barrons, analyst Morgan Stanley said: ” We currently see no delay in the ramp of Apple’s upcoming flagship 5.8-inch or 6.5-inch OLED iPhone.” In this note, he talked about two OLED iPhones which will also be releasing later this year and also an LCD iPhone which will be released after the OLED ones.
It seems Apple has got to face some issues with the production of LCD iPhones due to its LED backlight. The production is delayed by about 6 weeks. This delay would cost Apple a bit as it would delay the assembly too and overall production will be delayed.
This LCD iPhone is reported to have a 6.1 inch LCD screen. This is not the first time that Apple has to face the delay in production. It had to face the same problem with the launch of iPhone X. It was expected to release in September while it was actually released in November. So, it is not a difficult thing for Apple. This would just shift the release date of LCD iPhone to a later date than the OLED iPhones.
What is the problem that Apple is facing?
According to the reports, Apple is facing a problem with the LCD display. There is some kind of leakage as Apple want the notch design in the iPhone but with LCD screen it is quite a bit difficult. Well, it isn’t the only problem faced by Apple which is delaying the production. There were reports saying that Apple is having problems with LED backlight.
Apple is having the problem with the LCD screen mainly because it needs a backlight inside to function, unlike OLED screens. OLED screens can be easily be cut and folded and are slim. While LCD screens with backlight make phone thick and spoil the design a bit. Apple wants its design to be premium like others.
LCD screen would make the iPhone a bit cheaper as compared to the other high-end OLED models. We will get to know as they are released.
