iPhone 15: Samsung will start production of OLED screens in advance, what impact on the launch?
According to a recent report by TheElec, Samsung plans to start production of the iPhone 15 OLED screens a month in advance. This is due to the sudden withdrawal from the project of BOE, another Chinese manufacturer in charge of production, which has problems with light leakage. What to expect a premature release for the next Apple flagship?
Like every year, we should see the iPhone 15 hit the market in September. Early rumors even claim that Apple’s traditional keynote will take place on September 23rd. But a small twist in production could suggest that, this year, the Cupertino company would launch its next flagship a little earlier than usual.
According to a report from TheElec, Samsung Display is gearing up to start producing OLED screens in May. It’s Un months earlier than usual, with production generally starting in June. According to the Korean media, the manufacturer would take over from BOE, another Chinese manufacturer responsible for OLED screens, following problems encountered during production.
Will the iPhone 15 be released a month earlier?
Indeed, BOE would struggle to avoid light leaks on the screen of the standard iPhone 15. This is due to the fact that the smartphone uses the same screen as its predecessor, but now sports a center punch in which the selfie sensor is housed. It is at this level that the light leak would take place, which would force BOE to withdraw from the project in favor of Samsung Display.

So what about the release date? In reality, there is no indication that the launch will take place a month earlier. Indeed, the start of production in May concerns only the standard iPhone 15. Production for the displays of the Pro and Pro Max models will begin at least June at Samsung as well as at LG Display, as usual. In other words, we should officially discover the iPhone 15 in September.
As a reminder, Apple will increase the size of the screens on this new generation. Smartphones will also display the thinnest bezels in the world.
