iPhone 16 would have an edge over Samsung’s Galaxy S24 Ultra in display tech. A Korean media outlet reports that Samsung is slated to supply its latest M14 OLED for Google’s Pixel 9 and Apple’s iPhone 16 Pro. Both companies will utilize the advanced screens in their upcoming flagships.

Samsung apparently used M13 OLED in its Galaxy S24 series this year. However, the upgraded M14 panels will be brighter and more power-efficient than the current products. With advanced M14 OLED, Apple’s iPhone 16 Pro and Google’s Pixel 9 would outshine the S24 Ultra.

Google will introduce the Pixel 9 series in August this year. Samsung will hold its next Unpacked event in July to unveil new foldable phones. Apple, on the other hand, is expected to introduce the iPhone 16 series in its usual timeframe – September.

Samsung’s foldable phones may not feature the M14 screens. OLEDs supplied by Samsung Display are evaluated by their material set rating. The higher the material set, the higher brightness the panel will bring and offer enhanced power efficiency.

Last year’s Google flagships debuted the M13 OLED display, followed by the Galaxy S24 series. The Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro introduce Actua and Super Actua display tech. It offered higher brightness and power efficiency over previous Pixel smartphones.

Apple is the biggest client of Samsung Display. The company has been in discussion with the Korean display maker for its upcoming iPhone models. It recently approved the panel prototypes supplied by Samsung, which entered mass production last month.

Following this display upgrade, Samsung Mobile may also utilize it in the next year’s Galaxy S flagships. Previous rumors also claimed that the company would bring advanced display to Ultra and Plus variants. However, further details are yet to be known.
