iPhone 8 and organic light-emitting diodes
First off, it has long been rumored that at some point Apple would switch from the use of LED displays in its products to OLED, as have the likes of Samsung in its high-end devices like the Galaxy S7 Edge. However, at this time, the biggest demand for OLED technology is coming from Chinese handset manufacturers such as Huawei, Meizu Technology, and Oppo Electronics.
So what is an OLED (Organic light-emitting diode)? Summarizing from Wikipedia:
An organic light-emitting diode (OLED) is a light-emitting diode (LED) in which the emissive electroluminescent layer is a film of organic matter, which emits light in response to an electric current.
As for the iPhone 8, it is expected that Apple will finally make the switch to OLED with this handset, but as you would expect, nothing has been confirmed by the U.S. tech giant.

If this rumor turns out to be correct, this could be an extremely lucrative deal for both of the South Korean tech giants.
