Japan Display Inc's logo is pictured at its headquarters in Tokyo, Japan, August 9, 2016. The report also notes that Samsung will remain Apple's main OLED panel supplier for Apple next year. The firm relied on Apple's LCD screen needs for over half its revenue in the year ended March 2018. The iPhone XR now uses LCD display - which is very much less vibrant than an OLED display - compared to the better OLED displays found on the iPhone XS and the XS Max, in order to cut production costs.

Japanese electronics companies have been competing fiercely with South Korean rivals such as Samsung Electronics Co.in developing advanced display panels. The manufacturer has an OLED pilot line running in eastern Japan (via Reuters).

Kentucky and Auburn are going into overtime after both teams were unable to break a 60-60 tie in the final 30 seconds of the game. Chuma Okeke had 20 points and 11 rebounds before going down with an apparent knee injury midway through the second half.

The current Apple Watch Series 4 launched to much fanfare in part because of ECG functionality that can detect an abnormal heartbeat in a person. However, Apple will continue with the current sizes for the 2019 models, the report added with iPhones - of 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch screen sizes - featuring OLED displays and one LCD display model offering the 6.1-inch screen. According to DigiTimes, Apple will roll out three all-OLED models in 2020 with distinct display sizes starting at a compact 5.42-inch, a mid-6.06-inch display and finally, a large 6.67-inch display.

Japan Display's technology uses a slightly different manufacturing method and equipment from Samsung to avoid infringing patents held by the industry leader. It has been hurt in particular by a slowdown in iPhone sales and a proliferation of new models that use newer, organic light-emitting displays (OLED). The wireless charging case option feature in the AirPods 2 backs Kuo's statement regarding the future iPhone's reverse wireless functionality. This is a way of making the display thinner while also trimming costs. According to a report from DigiTimes, Apple's taken notice and is planning to release a 5.4-inch phone in 2020.
