Apple recently introduced the iPhone 14 lineup with upgraded specs compared to the iPhone 14 line. Interestingly, the Apple iPhone 14 Pro comes with an enhanced OLED display featuring a peak brightness of 2,000 nits, which is supplied by Samsung Display.
It’s worth mentioning that the Galaxy S22 Ultra, which is the most powerful (non-foldable) Samsung flagship smartphone, offers a peak brightness of 1,750 nits. Clearly, it’s significantly low compared to the claimed peak brightness of the new iPhone 14 Pro.
All flagship Galaxy smartphones offer OLED displays manufactured by Samsung Display, which is a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics. Meanwhile, it’s not good to see that there’s no strategic work between Samsung’s different divisions, resulting in competitors getting upgraded hardware, that is not offered in Galaxy.
Apple’s likely to begin shipments of the new iPhone 14 series smartphone later this month. Seeing this, the fourth quarter of this year could be led by Apple as there is no direct competition, as well as over 50% of consumers, are preferring iPhones in the United States.
Last month, Samsung introduced the fourth generation Galaxy foldable smartphones and now focussing on the development of the Galaxy S23 series flagship. We speculate the South Korean tech giant will launch the Galaxy S23 series in early 2023, with even better specs and display than the iPhone 14 line.

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.
