As well as standing against the iPhone, due to Apple's use of Samsung Display as a supplier for the iOS-powered smartphone, Samsung stands alongside the iPhone too. Which means that losing a quarter of the order for new iPhone screens will hurt the South Korean company.

Samsung Display was previously the screen supplier to the current iPhone for several years. Samsung had all equipped the flagship iPhone 11 handsets using OLED technology. The exclusivity was lost last year when Tim Cook and his team brought LG on board as a manufacturer of LCD screens as well as OLED screens for refurbished units.
