Huawei P40 series uses Samsung’s OLED screens


Last updated: April 2nd, 2020 at 08:39 UTC+02:00

Samsung Display is the biggest and most popular smartphone OLED panel manufacturer in the world. The company supplies OLED screens for hundreds of smartphone models, including the ones from Apple, Huawei, OnePlus, OPPO, Realme, Vivo, and Xiaomi. Huawei’s recently released P40 series uses Samsung’s OLED panels as well.

According to a report from South Korean tech publication TheElec, Huawei exclusively uses Samsung’s OLED screen in the P40 Pro+. The P40 Pro uses screens from China’s BOE as well as Korea’s LG Display and Samsung Display. The Huawei P40 exclusively uses BOE’s OLED screens. This goes on to show that Huawei prefers OLED panels from Samsung for its most premium phones, and this could be due to Samsung’s higher quality and better supply chain.

The Huawei P40 features a 6.11-inch OLED screen with Full HD+ resolution and 60Hz refresh rate. The P40 Pro and the P40 Pro+ use 6.58-inch OLED screens with 2640×1200 pixels resolution, 90Hz refresh rate, HDR10, and DCI-P3 color gamut. In comparison, Samsung’s Galaxy S20 series features OLED screens with QHD+ resolution, 120Hz refresh rate, HDR10+, and 100% DCI-P3 color gamut coverage.

Samsung uses OLED screens in over 60% of its phones, while Huawei uses OLED screens in just 20% of its phones.
