Apple to pay forfeit Samsung for under-ordered screens for iPhone 12 mini

Published

on

Apple may compensate Samsung Display for a significant drop in shipments of its OLED panels earlier this year, according to insiders.

We will remind, in January this year, shipments of small OLED panels Samsung Display fell by 9% to 45 million units. The main reason was that the production capacity of the iPhone 12 mini was cut due to sluggish sales.

Samsung Display is the exclusive supplier of the 5.4-inch OLED screen for the iPhone 12 mini. The reason for the penalty is that Apple made a commitment when it signed a contract to supply screens for its smartphones. As insiders point out, for many, including Apple, it was completely unexpected that the iPhone 12 mini could not reach the set lower limit.

If compensation is paid, it will be the third time in history that Apple has compensated Samsung for not ordering enough screens for its smartphones. According to reports, in 2019 Apple paid Samsung $ 683 million for under-ordered displays, and in 2020 the amount reached $ 950 million.

Interestingly, despite weak sales of the iPhone 12 mini, Apple plans to release the iPhone 13 mini with a 5.4-inch screen this fall.

Previously, the Nothing Phone (1) smartphone was tested in the AnTuTu benchmark, where it unexpectedly showed the best result in its class. At the same time, the smartphone endured the drop test worse. It is noteworthy that the screen can withstand drops in the presence of a film, but the back panel suffers much more.

The price of the smartphone is from 469 euros for the basic memory configuration.

Insiders have repeatedly noted that the Galaxy Z Flip 4 in terms of design is not much different from the current generation model. They don’t expect a revolution in terms of technical parameters either – the main innovation will be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 SoC, but the camera sensors, apparently, will remain 12-megapixel. However, it is expected that the battery capacity will increase to 3700 mAh.

Roland Quandt is a well-known informant. Previously, he completely declassified the GoPro 9 Black and GoPro 10 Black action cameras before their announcement, and also named their exact cost.

The frame is narrower but the camera protrudes much more

The official premiere of the iPhone 14 smartphones will take place in September, and a comparison of the current iPhone 13 Pro and the promising iPhone 14 Pro has already been published on the Web. And the comparison is live.

Usually, production of a new generation of iPhone starts in early summer, so theoretically these photos could be a production iPhone 14 Pro, although it is more likely that this is a prototype or even a mock-up. Be that as it may, in terms of dimensions and layout, it should not differ from the retail version.

The photo clearly shows how different the front cameras and screen cutouts are in the current and future models. The screen bezel on the iPhone 14 Pro is also smaller. The main camera block in the iPhone 14 Pro is larger than the similar block in the iPhone 13 Pro, and the lenses protrude more out of the body.
