A new report by Nikkei reveals that Apple is planning to launch the first iPhone with an OLED display a year earlier than previously reported. The company is reportedly ahead of schedule in its plans to ship an OLED iPhone next year.

The company began to reach out to Samsung and LG, rival smartphone makers but also display providers, last December to gauge the possibility of increasing production levels to a level that would support an OLED iPhone by next year.

A September 2015 report said that Apple was looking at taking advantage of the capabilities of OLED technology by using an OLED display for a future iPhone model with a curved design. However, with the sudden acceleration of the company's plans, such a plan could be shelved.
