Apple’s partner BOE will supply the OLED displays for the fourth-generation iPhone SE, which is due out next year, according to The elect.

Chinese company BOE reportedly missed the initial volume of OLED panels for this year’s iPhone 15 series due to production issues, with Samsung and LG claiming the majority of orders. Now it’s looking to catch up by focusing on producing OLED panels for the low-cost iPhone SE 4. The volume of OLED panels for the iPhone SE 4 is estimated to be around 20 million next year.

Rather than applying new specs, iPhone SE 4 is expected to use the OLED inventory originally put in place for 2021’s iPhone 13 or 2022’s iPhone 14. “It makes sense for Apple to optimize by pulling taken from component inventory, as it is an entry-level product,” adds the Korean report translated into machine language.

Apple has restarted development of a fourth-generation iPhone SE with a 6.1-inch OLED display and an Apple-designed 5G chip, according to information shared by reputable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo last month.

Kuo said the new iPhone SE will be similar to the standard iPhone 14, which has a 6.1-inch OLED display with thinner bezels. The current iPhone SE has a 4.7-inch LCD screen with thicker bezels.

Following the report on Kuo, renowned display analyst Ross Young said he had heard that the iPhone SE 4 would use an OLED panel from BOE, and today’s report backs that up.
