It has been confirmed that Samsung Display and BOE in China are the major suppliers of organic light-emitting diode (OLED) panels for premium smartphone P30 series released by Huawei on the 26th. LG Display, which had been the main supplier of flexible OLED panels for Huawei smartphones, has been replaced by BOE.
According to industry sources on the 28th, Huawei P30's flat OLED display is supplied by Samsung Display exclusively. And P30 Pro's curved OLED display is supplied exclusively by BOE.
LG Display has given its main supplier position to BOE. It is reported that LG Display became a sub-supplier for P30 Pro’s curved OLED display. LG Display used to supply flexible OLED panels as the main supplier to Huawei Mate RS and Mate 20 Pro.
On the day of the release of the P30 series, no model was installed with LCD panels. This is the first time Huawei has installed OLED panels to its premium smartphone series. An industry source said, "Up to this point, for Huawei P series, the flat model shipments have been far greater than curved models."
The display resolutions of P30 and P30 Pro are all FHD Plus (2340 * 1080). A flat-type OLED display is applied to low-end S10e among the premium smartphone S10 series released by Samsung Electronics on the 8th, and the S10 and S10 Plus are installed with curved display. The display resolution of the S10e is FHD Plus (2280 * 1080), while that of S10 and S10 Plus is Quad HD Plus (3040 * 1440).
