A report out of China claims that two of the biggest Chinese OEMs will launch curved display smartphones and for that purpose they will source display panels from Samsung and LG. Both manufacturers are expected to come out with their curved display smartphones by September this year. It’s Huawei that’s said to source the panels from Samsung whereas Xiaomi is expected to get its panels from LG.
Huawei is reportedly working on a new curved display handset called the Mate Edge. Aside from a Samsung-made display, this smartphone is also expected to feature Huawei’s in-house developer Kirin 950 chipset with 4GB RAM. Xiaomi might call its handset Mi Edge or Mi Note Edge and it might be powered by the Snapdragon 820 processor coupled with 4GB of RAM. Both handsets are expected in September this year.
