Apple's next generation iPhone X is expected to blow minds when it comes out, but now The Next Web is reporting that the new iPhone 8 (and I'm sure, iPhone X) will feature OLED displays - with Apple ordering a huge 160 million OLED displays... from its direct competitor.

Samsung has been tapped to supply OLED displays to Apple for its next-gen iPhone, according to South Korean outlet The Investor, which reports that Apple reached an agreement with Samsung's display division for 160 million OLED panels.

Apple had no chance but to go to Samsung, as the South Korean giant - and the maker of the upcoming Galaxy S8 smartphone, is producing around 95% of the total worldwide supply of OLED panels. LG has been ramping up, but won't come close to Samsung's mammoth numbers for quite a while.
