Apple iPhone to get OLED screen, claims mole

Mac maker's unannounced netbook too

3 Big data security analytics techniques

Apple may launch a host of gadgets with OLED displays later this year, including an OLED-equipped iPhone, it has been suggested.

Unnamed moles in Korea have been quoted by numerous online sites saying that the gadget line-up will also include netbooks, monitors and a new iPod Touch.

It’s worth noting that the source of the rumour is Korea, because Korean firm LG last year signed a $500m agreement with Apple last year to supply it with unspecified types of displays until 2013.

A separate Korean source has since claimed Apple already has a working prototype of a netbook fitted with an OLED screen supplied, of course, by LG.

OLED displays have become increasingly common in mobile phones over the last six months, the main draw being that they require less power because a backlight isn’t needed.

Larger-sized OLED panels aimed at TVs have yet to take off in a big way, mainly because they’re still too expensive to make for the mass market. For example, Sony’s XEL-1 OLED TV is only 3mm thick, measures just 11in across, yet costs £3490 ($5079/€3700).
