According to the report, the vice chairman of Samsung Electronics, Kwon Oh-hyun revealed that a huge order of the flexible screen of Samsung were made by different customers although the names of the customers were not revealed. Kwon indicated that industry insiders revealed that Apple was one of the customers that ordered the display.
However the Apple-focused website indicated that the reported possible use of flexible displays on the iPhone 5 was not believable. The reported orders for the flexible displays came before the supposed launch of the iPhone 5. The displays were also expected to be delivered sometime in fall or at around the same period that the reported iPhone 5 will be available in the market.
The website further indicated that Apple is not expected to replace the retina display with the flexible screen on the reported iPhone 5. The company would also have to depend on Samsung for the flexible display if this will be used on the iPhone 5, which is something unbelievable in terms of marketing.
The flexible display may not be also used on another version of the iPhone since it would not make an order for components that will be used on a device that will be released in more than a year after they are delivered.
The quality offered by the flexible display is another reason why it will not be used on the upcoming iPhone 5. The flexible display may not have enough color accuracy and pixel density as the retina display that is currently being used on some of the devices of the company.
Due to these reasons, it was unlikely that the upcoming iPhone 5 of Apple will feature the flexible display that is being supplied by Samsung in the market.
