Will the next generation iPhone sport an even fancier display than the OLED panels that are found on the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max? It's a possibility. Apparently Foxconn, which assembles the bulk of Apple's iPhone products, is extending its investments into microLED technology through three of its subsidiaries, including Advanced Optoelectronic Technology (AOT), Epileds Technologies, and Marketech International. All three have developed and are currently ramping up capacities of parts related to the production of microLED chip, as well as production equipment.

(In case you forgot, there’s some bad blood between the two.) Image Source: concept-phones.com LuxVue makes micro-LED screen... Read more...
