Apple follow looking for alternatives to Samung Display and LG for their OLED screens, so much so that important measures are even adopted in R&D with the creation of research and development centers in Taiwan, among other investments.

The truth is that the new generation of these Apple Watch Series 5 that will arrive this year do not seem to have too many changes beyond the component manufacturers and the news in software that they can add from Cupertino. It is true that it is too early to draw conclusions but the only changes that could be added is that these OLEDs from Japan Display are slightly thinner and allow greater flexibility so they could round the corners of the new model a bit more.
