Samsung is the sole manufacturer of the OLED displays, NAND flash and DRAM chip in quantities required by Apple for its iPhones, which are the main revenue source for the Cupertino tech giant. Later by the beginning of this year, the company had introduced the Mini version as well the original version to the several midrange and premium devices, apart from the flagship smartphones. A little in the way of Airbus in the aerospace, Apple, which has always been anxious to reduce its costs of production, buys more parts produced by others, in order to focus on the design and assembly of the finished product.
With accounts made, Samsung is expected to earn $4 billion from total IPhone X sales, from supply of parts supplied to Apple.
Apple's new iPhone 8 Plus may not assault your wallet quite as vigorously as the iPhone X, but it'll still set you back a pretty penny. The hardware that allows it is no doubt OLED panel taken from Samsung. If you feel the 3300mAh battery capacity of the Galaxy Note8 is not enough, ZeroLemon has a battery case that provides over 100% of extra battery life. Oppo claimed five of the most popular phones; Xiaomi accounted for two and Huawei produced one. The handset will run on the iOS 11 operating system out of the box. However when it comes to the features the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has enjoyed the supreme position with almost no competition at all.
Samsung is now working hard to keep up the hype as rumors of the Samsung Galaxy S9 has begun circulating.
Meanwhile, Samsung is expected to sell 50 million units of its own Galaxy S8 device.
Apple no doubt saw this coming, and it may be a major reason why the company was comparatively slow to adopt OLED displays.
Samsung uses the letter "Z" in its test firmware and the letter was present in the Android Nougat releases for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. Till it succeeds in breaking away from Samsung, the pair will just have to continue this uneasy partnership. But then the iPhone 8 Plus adds its second sensor for perks that the Galaxy S8 Plus just can't touch.
According to a report, Samsung is estimated to earn about $110 on every iPhone X sold.
Among the 22 top-shipping models so far this year are eight Chinese models that shipped more than 6 million units in H1 2017: five from Oppo, two from Xiaomi and one from Huawei, IHS Markit reported.
