New OLED Display
Unlike the iPhone, the Apple Watch has used OLED displays from the very beginning, but has always sourced them from LG Display. A recent report from Reuters, however, notes that Apple plans to shift to Japan Display for screens for its newest Apple Watch units.
Whether this results in any significant changes remains to be seen, however. Japan Display has a long and solid track record at making LCD displays — in fact it’s where Apple gets the Liquid Retina Displays for the iPhone XR — but this will be its first big foray into OLED.
Apple’s normally high standards for quality suggest that this isn’t likely to be a bad thing, but whether we’ll see any display improvements as as result of this is still anybody’s guess.
