Samsung has been supplying Apple with quite a number of parts for its devices over the years, but it looks like it won't be involved with the AMOLED displays for Apple's upcoming Watch, according to DigiTimes.




The site is reporting that LG Display has won the contract, with around five million displays a month being shipped to Apple for its Watch. Over the course of 2015, Apple expects to sell a mammoth 50 million Watches, meaning Samsung has lost out on a considerable chunk of manufacturing profits for the AMOLED panels, with LG picking up some big business.
