AMOLED displays gaining market share, Samsung accounts for 95.8% of it

Samsung logoApple may be switching to AMOLED displays for the 2018 iPhones, and those could either come from Samsung or JDI, depending on who you ask. But then again, even without Apple, AMOLED is doing mighty fine, a report out of South Korea states.

The numbers for Q3 2016 show a 35% increase in number of displays shipped, compared to the previous quarter. Even more impressively, the 79 million mobile displays are more than twice as many as in the same period last year. Wider adoption and diminishing production costs have meant that the $3.29 billion value of the displays sold is not double that from Q3 2014, but it's nearly there.
