Apple vs Samsung In the smartphone and tech industry there are no greater rivals than Apple and Samsung. Apple's new smartphone the iPhone X, (available starting November 3rd), is the latest in the two companies trying to one up each other. However... Samsung is actually making quite a profit on each iPhone X sold. This is because Samsung is in contract with Apple to supply the components required to build each phone. Samsung built components: OLED display -(iPhone X) Batteries -(iPhone X, iPhone 8, 8s) Chipsets and Processors-(iPhone X, iPhone 8, 8s) Samsung has a contract to supply around 160 million OLED displays to Apple. Originally the contract was for 100 million and was estimated to be worth $2.59 billion. Who's winning in this smart phone competition?
