Samsung Powers Up: Delivering a Whopping 70 Million OLED Display for iPhone 15 Series!
By the end of 2023, Samsung Display is likely to supply nearly 70 million units of OLED for the iPhone 15 series to Apple. The company’s OLED volume by model is estimated to be in the low 20 million units for the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus, 9 to 10 million for Pro, and ~ 30 million for Pro Max.
Among the four iPhone 15 models, the 15 Pro Max OLED estimate, which Apple plans to produce the most, is four times higher for Samsung than for LG Display. Industry watchers say that Samsung Display’s iPhone 15 Pro Max OLED volume is in the mid-20 million units, three times that of LG Display.
The prevailing view is that LG Display will have 15% more OLED volume than Samsung Display (9 million to early 10 million units). Those who see it differently predict that Samsung Display will secure around 20 million units of 15% OLED, which will be more than LG Display.
Apple’s Surprising Victory: Takes the Crown in Indian Smartphone Exports, Samsung Drops to Second
For the first time, Apple surpassed Samsung in smartphone export from India. The company shipped 49% of the country’s total 12 million shipments in the second quarter. Samsung, on the other hand, secured 45% of India’s total smartphone shipments in the same period.
Apple clocked a rapid growth in export volumes in the last year by making iPhones through contract manufacturers in India. The Cupertino-based company’s share of exports soared from just 9% of the roughly 8 million smartphones shipped in Q2 2022, to almost half the total smartphone exports in Q2 2023.
Samsung’s share of export volumes fell from 50% in Q1 2023 to 45% in Q2 2023. This marks a sharp decline from Q2 2022 when the company had a dominating 84% of the export market from India. Meanwhile, exports by other Android brands (Xiaomi, Motorola, Vivo) declined from 10% in Q1 2023, to 6% in Q2 2023.
Google Messages adds waveforms to Voice Recorder UI
Instead of holding down the mic to record, you will now see a panel with a start/stop button and options to cancel, delete, or attach the recording. You will also see a waveform and a timer while recording, and you can play back the recording before sending it.
The voice messages preview will also show a waveform between the play/pause button and the timer, making it more noticeable than the current straight line.
These changes are not widely available yet, but some users have reported seeing them on their phones. These new changes are part of a bigger redesign that Google is working on for Messages, which includes a revamped home screen that is still in beta testing. Google might announce new features soon.
