According to a report by The Elec, Samsung Display Co. has begun the development of a two-stack tandem OLED to win an iPad order. Before we begin, let me explain what I mean by “win an iPad order.”

When Apple wants to manufacture a new device, the Cupertino-based company tells its suppliers about it and requests estimated budgets from them. Apple also asks for a certain quality and some production and delivery dates to be met. The company or companies that meet Apple’s requirements “win the order.” This means that they’ll be the suppliers for one or various parts for that device the company wants to manufacture.

Let us go to The Elec report now. According to the report, Samsung is developing new technology with OLED displays to try to “win the order” for some supposed OLED iPads that will be manufactured in 2024.

This two-stack structure would allow the manufacturer to double the display brightness while quadrupling its expected life span.

Imagine a 2,000 nits display; there would be no trouble using it in the streets no matter how sunny the day is.

Good luck if you happen to pick up your phone when you wake up and the brightness is set to the maximum, though. Oof.

Samsung Display has named the material set for these new OLED panels as T1, and the T stands for tandem. Samsung’s current plans are to use these panels in tablets and notebooks. 

The Elec reports that Samsung Display will start the production of these new panels as early as 2023.

The 2023 production will be used in Samsung Electronics products and won’t be until 2024 when Samsung Display starts its production for Apple, as long as they “win the order.”

I hope you found this article helpful and that you learned what “win the order” means. Let me know what you think about this and if you would like Apple to use these new panels in the comments. As always, have a fantastic day!
