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.
