The shares of Japan Display Inc. and Sharp Corp. fell after South Korea’s Electronic Times reported that Apple Inc. has decided to use next-generation screens for all of its new models next year.

If true, Apple’s move would be negative for JDI and Sharp, which have so far been unable to mass produce OLEDs and currently supply LCD screens. Samsung Display Co., part of Samsung Electronics Co., has so far been the sole provider of organic light-emitting diode displays for use in iPhones. JDI shares fell as much as 21 percent, the biggest intraday drop since its 2014 market debut. Sharp declined as much as 4.1 percent, while Samsung was down 1.7 percent.

Representatives for JDI, Sharp and Samsung Display declined to comment. Two representatives for Apple in Asia didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
