Its light-emitting layers are lighter, its substrate can be flexible instead of rigid. Its substrates can be plastic rather than the glass used for LEDs and LCDs.
The next advantages of OLED display is that it is brighter than LEDs. Its conductive and emissive layers can be multi-layered. OLED display doesn’t require glass to absorb some lights just like LEDs and LCDs.
The other good thing about OLED display is that it generates light themselves so it doesn’t require backlighting like LCDs. This allows OLED display to consume much less power than LCDs. SO, it will make the iPhone 7s better as it will add its battery life.
