China-Based BOE Rumored to Supply Displays for iPhone 15 Pro in 2023

China-based display maker BOE will supply Apple with OLED LTPO displays for the higher-end models of the iPhone 15 lineup in 2023, according to a new report from The Elec.

Following unsuccessful attempts by the Chinese maker in 2020 to supply displays for the iPhone 12 series, BOE joined Apple's list of display makers to produce panels for the baseline 6.1-inch iPhone 13 earlier this year. Apple's higher-end iPhone 13 Pro and ‌iPhone 13 Pro‌ Max displays, which require more advanced technology, are made by Samsung.

According to today's report, BOE is looking to expand its ability to manufacture OLED LTPO displays, which enable a variable refresh rate of up to 120Hz, in time for the ‌iPhone 15‌ Pro, expected in 2023. For the iPhone 14 series expected this fall, BOE will continue to supply displays for only the lower-tier handsets while Pro series displays will continue to rely on Samsung and LG.

For the first time since the iPhone X, Apple is rumored to be planning a major redesign of the display on the higher-end ‌iPhone 14‌ models, including removing the notch. Apple is rumored to be replacing the notch with a hole punch and a pill-shaped cutout at the top of the display for the TrueDepth system and front-facing camera.

I'm getting an iPhone 14. I dont want a Chinese made Screen. I trust Samsung and LG for screens.

Yet another way APPLE is cheapening their product and still demanding premium prices.

If I wanted a cheap Chinese screen I would buy a non Samsung CHEAP Android phone.

Why we talking about phones in 2023 can we get 2022 out the way first
By now, Apple is probably working on iPhone 15, 16. That’s why we are hearing this.

My first thought is “screen lottery?”
Not sure how good BOE is, but diversifying supply chain is always a good idea.

The panel of what you are getting may be also made by BOE too.

BOE is famous for making most of the FlexView IPS panels in old ThinkPads, where they were putting out high-res 1400x1050 12” and 1600x1200 15” panels way back in the early 2000’s, long before Apple got their act together with laptop screen quality. They’re still highly sought after by enthusiasts to this day!

Assuming they haven’t lost their mojo, BOE has a long history of hanging with the best in their industry in terms of quality and cutting-edge tech. I don’t think you need to worry about Apple cutting corners here.

Isn’t that the case with every display manufacturer?

And let’s be honest, there is a select amount of people who actually go looking for flaws on displays -versus- flaws that actually stand out. Totally two different things.
