The South Korean tech giant Samsung that famously made the displays for Apple’s iPhone X last year is going to start making displays for a new iPhone X and iPhone X Plus as reported by Taiwan’s Economic Daily News. The media house reports that Samsung will start making these devices sometime next month in May and probably double its production capacity by June this year. This news brings the timeline forward as it was expected that the company will start production by the end of June.
This report could be considered good as we can expect that the new iPhone X, iPhone X Plus and a mid-ranged model with an LCD screen will probably be available at the same time. The smartphones will likely be announced by early September as every year and be ready to order in another month’s time.
And if the early production of the displays work out for Samsung, then the staggered release of the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X that we saw last year could be avoided by Apple. The iPhone X launch was delayed last year compared to that of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus because there were apparently issues with the production of the TrueDepth Camera system that powered the Face ID feature.
To sum it up, an early production plan from Samsung could only mean good news for the customers as it literally translates to earlier dates and more devices available on the markets for the customers to buy. There were some hitches in the availability of the phones with long wait times as well last year.
