Galaxy S21 to continue using Samsung displays, BOE OLED panels reportedly fail testing


Last updated: June 10th, 2020 at 08:39 UTC+02:00

We had reported last month that Samsung Electronics is testing OLED panels from BOE as a cheaper alternative to OLED screens from Samsung Display. These displays were meant to be used in some phones in the Galaxy S21 series next year. However, it is now being said that the South Korean smartphone giant will continue to use OLED panels from Samsung Display.

Media report coming out of South Korea states that OLED displays from Chinese firm BOE failed to pass Samsung’s testing process. Apparently, OLED displays from BOE were unable to pass the South Korean smartphone giant’s first testing stage. Display market research firm DSCC had reported earlier that BOE intended to supply 6.67-inch OLED panels to Samsung, but that doesn’t seem to be happening anymore.

Earlier, Samsung had requested BOE to send a quotation for OLED screens with a 90Hz refresh rate that could be used in Galaxy S21 series smartphones. There were also rumors of Galaxy S21 featuring OLED screens with under-display selfie cameras. Usually, quality testing and mass production testing are performed before displays are used in final products. However, BOE seems to have failed the first stage of display tests.

It is also being reported that BOE OLED panels have failed the testing phase for the iPhone 12, which is slated to be launched later this year. BOE, LG Display, and Samsung Display were meant to supply OLED screens for the iPhone 12 series. A report had later claimed that Samsung would provide 80 percent screen orders for the next iPhone.
