According to South Korean media, the Chinese display manufacturer BOE is developing panels for the new budget smartphones from Samsung Electronics. In particular, we are talking about the Galaxy A13 and A23 series, which are expected to be released in May this year.
Additionally, according to Business Korea, Samsung BOE offered to launch panels for its next-gen flagship smartphones in late March. Now we are testing the technologies available to the Chinese manufacturer and signing a deal with Samsung.
BOE is the world’s largest display manufacturer with a market share of around 20% for its OLED displays. It is known that Samsung intends to introduce new smartphones with flexible screens from the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 series in August. So far, smartphones from these series have been supplied with displays by Samsung itself.
Samsung has reportedly asked BOE for a technology review. A key factor for Samsung considering a potential collaboration will be whether BOE solutions meet quality requirements such as: B. Resistance to extreme temperatures. Further tests are carried out under real conditions.
Samsung is showing increasing flexibility in equipping its products with new displays. It is known that the Korean company has started negotiations with its main competitor LG Display to supply OLED displays for its TVs. Previously, BOE has already started supplying large LCD panels to Samsung Electronics.
