Apple is likely to launch its next smartphone lineup – the iPhone 14 in the next two or three months. It is reported that the top model of the Apple iPhone 14 might finally ditch the notch display, featuring a punch hole panel with pill-shaped holes for the sensors, however, Samsung can still meet RAM & display demand.
Due to major changes in the hardware specs, Apple might have a massive demand for the iPhone 14 models, which leads supply chain issues for the suppliers. Meanwhile, Samsung is expected to meet the increased demand for Apple iPhone 14 for LPDDR5 RAM and display panels.
Samsung to meet iPhone 14 RAM & display demand
According to trusted source MingChiKuo, Apple iPhone 14 parts suppliers have recently faced supply issues for LPDDR5 RAMs and displays. However, Samsung can easily meet the boosted demand for upcoming iPhones, even after it is almost the sole supplier for the 3rd quarter of 2022.
Later on, other OEMs including Micron and SK Hynix are likely to ship the LPDDR5 memory in the fourth quarter, due to the late certification procedure start of the former, and quality issues by the latter. It’s worth mentioning that Samsung is one of the largest memory chip manufacturers on the planet.
Apple purchases iPhone display panels from Samsung, China’s BOE, and LG Display for different models. While LG Display will produce panels for the top variants of the upcoming iPhone 14 series, it’s currently facing appearance issues, which might be filled by Samsung and BOE Display.
Samsung and BOE can largely fill the initial supply gap caused by LG Display's panel appearance issues (iPhone 14 Max and iPhone 14, mainly the former). It's expected that LG Display should not take much time to address the issue.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 to resolve under-display camera quality problems
Samsung first introduced the under-display camera technology with the Galaxy Z Fold 3 last year and brought its second generation with the Galaxy Z Fold 4. Moving ahead, Samsung aims to finally resolve the quality issues of under-display camera phones by 2024, which could be the Galaxy Z Fold 6.
According to TheElec report, the Display subsidiary of The company aimed to apply a transparent PI substrate to its foldable phone by 2024. Samsung is reportedly considering to ditch the yellow PI substrate and replace it with transparent PI substrate to offer clear photos without quality reduction through under-display camera.
Going ahead with the report, it’s expected that the Korean tech giant will first introduce the new under-display camera panel featuring transparent PI substrate with the Galaxy Z Fold 6 (tentative name) followed by OLED panels for Apple iPhones.
As of now, the foldable OLED displays are being mass-produced using a yellow PI substrate, which will be replaced with a transparent polyimide (PI) substrate around 2024. Using the new tech, Samsung seeks to improve the light transmittance of the under-panel camera (UPC).
The under-panel camera is an element that is structurally located below the OLED display, at the same time, its aperture is only visible when the device uses the camera function. While the camera of the phone is in operation, UPC allows external light to pass through the flexible OLED.
If Samsung Display applies a transparent PI substrate instead of a yellow PI substrate as planned, the light transmittance in the UPC area will increase, making it possible to take clearer pictures than now. Pixels can also be arranged more densely than now, reducing the sense of heterogeneity within the periphery of the display.
