“It’s time to brace yourselves, Universal Display (OLED) investors, because the Apple (AAPL) OLED rumor mill is back in full force,” Steve Symington writes for The Motley Fool.
“This time, it’s the folks over at DisplaySearch speculating Apple could be working on building a flexible AMOLED screen for its widely anticipated iWatch, which they think could be pegged for launch late next year,” Symington writes. “Specifically, the DisplaySearch report states that, based on their supply chain research, they think Apple is planning to revamp almost all of the displays in its products over the next year, with the list culminating in either a 1.3- or 1.63-inch 320×320 pixel flexible AMOLED display for its iWatch.”
“Unless Apple somehow shocks the industry by decking out its iPhone and iPad lineups with OLED screens, don’t expect the iWatch to move Universal Display’s revenue needle anytime soon,” Symington writes. “But that’s not to say such an agreement would be all bad. At the very least, Apple embracing OLED in any product it makes would both validate the technology and spur broader consumer adoption as other electronics manufacturers take note. If that happens, it’s safe to expect Universal Display shareholders will be handsomely rewarded.”
