Apple iPhone SE2’s LCD Panels May be Supplied by South Korea’s LG

Apple used to draw a bulk of its LCD panels from the South Korean conglomerate LG before it shifted to the OLED panels for its iPhones. There are rumors that the budget iPhones which have been made with the LCD panels may also see the shift to OLED from 2020. However, the iPhone SE2 will sport the LCD panel and a report from a South Korean publication The Elec says Apple is testing the LCD panels of LG for this phone.

Still Under Testing; Full Contract to Follow

These sources are often able to collect inside information from component manufacturers and it usually proves to be correct. This happens with most popular brands including Samsung and Apple. To that extent, there may be some substance in what this South Korean source is claiming. The report in The Elec goes on to say that currently Apple is just conducting the tests on the LCD panels made by LG and as soon as the test results are successful, the contract to supply the panels may come through. LG’s LCD panel production line may have to make some alterations to start the bulk manufacture.

iPhone SE 2

Being a South Korean source, the report has added more titbits to the story. It says LG was not keen on making components for budget phones but has relented later. The report also hints that the LG panel-making unit is already undertaking a massive restructuring and this contract from Apple may fit into its new objectives.

iPhone SE2 Seems to be on course

This information on the LCD panel further adds to the bits and pieces from all over on the speculated release of the successor to the iPhone SE by Apple in the first quarter of 2020, possibly in the month of March. The rumors have talked about the LCP antenna and other details. There were leaks on how the display size would be 4.7 inches and the processor, the A13 Bionic chipset. The iPhone SE2, or whatever name Apple chooses to give it, is likely to have 3 GB RAM and two storage variants 64 GB and 128 GB.

Above all, there has been a prediction that the new iPhone SE2 will be priced at $399 at the lower end.
