LG Display will supply the AMOLED displays for the Apple Watch when it launches in 2015, reports Digitimes. According to the report, Apple is also expecting to ship five million units of the wearable device a month, and is aiming to sell more than 50 million Apple Watches in 2015.
Apple was also said to be in talks with Samsung to provide AMOLED panels for the device, however the company ultimately decided that all displays for its smartwatch would come from LG. The news is similar to a report last October from The Korea Herald, which noted that Apple was close to striking a deal with LG to supply panels for its wearable after talks with Samsung were said to be "not productive."
The Apple Watch will begin shipping in early 2015 and come in two sizes of 38mm and 42mm (1.5 and 1.7 inches), with six available casing materials and six different bands. The Apple Watch will be also organized into three editions, including the entry-level Apple Watch Sport collection, the stainless-steel Apple Watch collection, and the high-end luxury Apple Watch Edition collection. Pricing will start at $349.

More like 5-10 million.
First generation iPad sales in its first year? ~15 million
First generation iWatch sales in its first year being 50 million? Nope.
10% of iPhone users buying smart watches? I doubt that. But I don't think Apple is one to inflate numbers. So maybe.
Digitimes inaccurate?! That's unpossible!
dunno, I want one, and I don't really know why.
Not sure if stupid or troll.
