R&D money spent on better things
Liquid crystal has hit its technological peak and companies like Samsung and LG are investing in R&D for different types of technology.
Spending a fortune on micro-LED development
Apple wants to reduce its dependence on Samsung and develop its own micro-LED displays.
Could replace OLED on smartwatches
Samsung has started to commercialise MicroLED technology for smartwatches and the tech could be used to replace OLED displays.
There is something in my eye
LG Display has shown off a thin, lightweight, stretchable, and twistable micro-LED screen which is made from the same silicon material as contact lenses.
Built by TSMC
Apple is developing micro LED panels for both small-size and large-size applications along with its chum TSMC.
Asian suppliers might be knifed soon
Apple's Asian supplies might be about to receive the long expected knife in the back.
Inventing is too hard
Apple’s claim to be an innovator took another knock as it was revealed that it was slashing staff in one of its key R&D labs.
Still too expensive for smartphones
While many thought it would take three years to get Micro LED displays to become available in the market due to technological bottlenecks, it looks like it will be a lot easier than many thought.
