Apple could significantly shake things up for its product lineup next year. Not only is the company expected to introduce its first 5G iPhone in 2020, it’s now also believed to introduce Micro LED displays to the Apple Watch next year. Apple is reportedly close to signing a deal with two Taiwanese manufacturers who will supply the Micro LED displays for the Apple Watch.

Yu Chuang, a company that manufacturers Micro LED processors, and Sui Bao, which assembles displays, have reportedly been selected by Apple as the suppliers for the 2020 Apple Watch. The report adds that these companies have recently worked on Micro LED products for Samsung as well which are also expected to be released next year.

Yu Chuang hasn’t commented on this report but Sui Bao mentioned to the Economic Daily News that the production line is ready and that it’s in discussions with the U.S. smart watch industry, without naming Apple of course.

Given that mass production of the Micro LED displays will likely take time, the 2020 Apple Watch may thus not be introduced before the fall of next year. If the timeline is accurate, it would make it almost six years since it was first reported that Apple wants to bring Micro LED displays to its wearable device.
