Apple Watch with MicroLED display could be launched in 2020

Apple has had advanced talks with Taiwanese screen manufacturers to use microLED displays in their Apple Watch next year, according to a new report.

Citing sources with Apple’s supply chain knowledge , Economic Daily News says the company will be ready to launch an Apple Watch with a microLED screen in 2020 , replacing the current use of LG Display’s OLED panels.

MicroLED panels use different light-emitting compounds than current OLED displays used in Apple Watch and should help make future devices thinner , brighter and with longer battery life.

A previous DigiTimes rumor suggested that Apple will work with Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) to develop MicroLED panels for Apple Watch that could start production this year.

However, Bloomberg has a slightly different timing for Apple’s adoption of MicroLED and believes they will not appear in the Apple Watch until next year, with a two to four year time span for the iPhone.
