The Xiaomi high range will feature Samsung OLED panels-Despite commercial competition for reaching the throne of mobile telephony, both Xiaomi and Samsung are also dedicated to making components that can serve both brands. Samsung is perhaps the most popular manufacturer of AMOLED panels and now it seems that the Chinese brand will feature Samsung OLED panels in the high range of Xiaomi.
The Investor has reported that Xiaomi has asked for millions of panels to be delivered later this year to star in its next flagships. Xiaomi has reportedly ordered 6-inch rigid OLED panels, which completely rule out its presence on curved display devices. One million units will be delivered by the end of this year, and more than 2 million units will be delivered in January next year.
Earlier it was reported that the company had tried to place an order for 5.5 inch OLED panels to LG. However, the agreement was reduced as LG’s manufacturing schedule began to present problems. That’s why the high range of Xiaomi may be forced to dispense with curved screens in favor of a larger size as shown by Samsung’s OLED panels.
It remains to be seen whether these panels will have FHD resolution or QHD resolution. Taking into account the fact that the South Korean giant is already producing tens of millions of AMOLED panels for Apple, we expect the production cycle will not be affected. And let’s begin to see Xiaomi’s first high-end smartphones with these panels in early 2018, that is, we doubt we’ll be in time to star in the Xiaomi Mi Note 3.
The Xiaomi Mi 7 screen?
And what high-end terminal would Xiaomi introduce at the beginning of next year? By then the brand new phablet as expected Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 should have already started their marketing period, so if you look at previous years, the high range of Xiaomi that e would present in early 207 would be the Xiaomi Mi 7.
Recall that yet, the Xiaomi Mi 7 would not be the first smartphone manufacturer to use an OLED display. Already in its day, the brand launched to the market the Xiaomi Redmi Pro with a screen of nature OLED, with technology SuperAMOLED, to offer a black tone very marked and rest of vivid colors. In addition, this mobile was also the first to reach the market with a configuration of a double camera in the back.
