Apple Inc has partnered with Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co to develop micro OLED displays, which it plans to use in its upcoming augmented reality (AR) devices, Nikkei Asia reported Wednesday.
Apple is working with TSMC, the only supplier of iPhone processors, because micro OLED displays are much thinner, smaller, and use less power, making them more suitable for use in portable AR devices, the report says.
Displays under development are less than 1 inch in size, Nikkei added.
Bloomberg News in January reported that Apple was still working on the underlying technologies for its AR glasses, codenamed N421. He said the product was several years away, citing sources, but added that Apple had already targeted as early as 2023 to unveil it.
The micro OLED project with TSMC is currently in the trial production stage and will take several years to reach mass production, according to Nikkei.
TSMC declined to comment, while Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Reuters.
