Anonymous, 19 Feb 2018I have no problem with rumours/speculations as long as it clearly states that that is the case... moreLol. I never said that the iPhone X was selling really bad, and neither the reports said it. The report just said that the future demand for the iPhone X in 2018 is weaken, as in, not as strong as it used to be. So, in order to maximise the profits, Apple has cut down the production for future iPhone X. As a result, Samsung had been left with many high quality OLED panels that no other companies can currently afford to be sell off to.
And for your information, Apple never disclosed the number of iPhone X sold. The quarterly financial results just covers the revenues, profits and the numbers of product sold as a whole. Those who reported about the numbers of iPhone X, 8 and 8 Plus sold are from respected analysis and reporters, and NOT from Apple itself. (Show me a link to prove otherwise) But I guess, since it didn't come from Apple themselves, you going to treat them as an unreliable source right? Lol.
They should charge apple more per unit since they're not buying as much now...

Painting something as facts when its clearly not is what I object against. Going by alot of analysts and "people in the know" iPhone X was selling really bad, outsold by 8 and older iPhones. Now there are hard numbers and facts that shows that this was clearly not the case. Apple sold pretty much exactly what they as expecting to sell according to their guidance for that quarter. If Apple had expected to sell as many iPhone X as some analyst said they were Apple would have missed their guidance by a mile.

But they will buy a minimum, say 30m panels ... Samsung as supplier will have to price in the extra 10m units in case Apple doesn't require them. Samsung may also say to Apple that they must pay, say 25% of cost, for the extra 10m which they didn't take up. It's all depends on how the contract was written up.
Let me assure you that Samsung were never out of pockets. They may have extra panels in their factories ... but they never made a loss on the contract. Contingencies were made for such an unforeseen outcome.

To be interesting for me there has to be more weight to the rapport then a nameless source.

Don't be so ignorant. Just because it didn't come from Apple or Samsung or some other smartphone OEMs, doesn't means it's fake news. For instance, MOST of the articles here in GSMArena ALONE are not from the manufacturers or official smartphones OEM. It comes from leakers, analysis and insiders. And sometimes, even redditors. And most of them comes out true in the end.
And honestly, do you REALLY think Apple going to give out a statement, stating that they had cut the production of the iPhone X? Lol no. It would be a PR disaster for them.

Apple to waste Samsung's money. I would sue Apple. but I not the type for suing.

simply they can just cut the top notch and do a smaller screen to use, but whi know if aiple change their mind.

Before you would see any problems with OLED you will change your phone at least 2 times...
Also keep in mind that average device lifespan is 2-3 years, there is bigger chance that battery in your device start loosing juice before you will ever notice smallest problems with screen.

That's why I personally won't use them. They are still not a fully developed product.
I'm sorry but I just don't understand how this works. If Apple wants to bankrupt Samsung and leave them with LOTS of unsold panels, they only had to trick them into believing they would buy every panel they could produce?

That "estimate of over 40 million" is just.... tada an estimate done by analysts. It's not a number from Apple. Apple beat their own quarterly report meaning they sold just about as many iPhone 8/8+/X as they thought they would, that is fact.
I don't get it. Wouldn't they manufacture them according to how much Apple ordered? Or even Samsung gave Apple too much credit
