|The problem with all these articles is that they say oled but they don’t say universal display corp. So could somebody else be providing materials and process/patent???|
We have never (or if ever, very very rarely) seen Universal Display cited as a supplier of materials for OLED in articles like this. The "tier 1" players in this article will be purchasing their panels from manufacturers like BOE, Tianma, et al just like Sony, Panasonic, Apple (Foxconn), Motorola, et al purchase their panels from other manufacturers of their panels (Samsung, LG).
For smart phone applications, there simply is no reason why OLED displays would be manufactured with other-than-phosphorescent emitter materials when possible. Heat and power efficiency benefits are among the most important features that phosphorescent OLED brings to the table. If flexibility (conformability) is needed over power efficiency for some weird reason, I suppose a manufacturer could use an all fluorescent set of OLED emitters, but I simply can not imagine that a manufacturer would opt for that. If I'm off base, please speak up.
The fact is, all of the tier 1 entities mentioned in this article are likely obtaining their panels from panel manufacturers with whom UDC already has supply and licensing agreements, and therefore UDC materials will be inside of those panels.
