A new spin on those reports of OLED panel shortfalls?
From a DigiTimes report posted Monday:
Apple has purchased chemical vapor deposition (CVD) machines from Korea-based Sunic System to build a 2.5G OLED panel line to develop related technology and products in Taiwan, according to a Korea-based ET News report.
Apple is eagerly developing its own OLED technology in order to reduce its reliance on Samsung Electronics for the supply of OLED panels, while enabling it for product differentiation, said the report.
Note: It's not clear from this account how many CVD machines Apple has purchased or when it took delivery. This could put a new spin on thousands (literally) of published reports that Apple is facing OLED panel shortfalls.
