Samsung may end up using Chinese OLED displays for the Galaxy A73


Last updated: October 18th, 2021 at 12:00 UTC+01:00

The Galaxy A series is very important for Samsung. These mid-range devices are loved across the globe. They provide exceptional features at a very competitive price. The Galaxy A handsets tend to sell very well. That’s why Samsung does a great job every year making sure they remain competitive.

It’s going to be no different for the 2022 Galaxy A series. A few rumors have emerged already and they predict promising changes for the lineup. Samsung also appears to be making steps to improve its profit margins on these devices.

Your Galaxy A73 might have a Chinese display panel

According to reports out of South Korea, Samsung is considering using Chinese OLED panels for the Galaxy A73. Samsung Display has previously been supplying all OLED panels used in Samsung smartphones.

In order to secure OLED panels at lower prices, Samsung Electronics is now expected to source OLED displays from China’s BOE and CSOT. The two companies are said to be already developing panels for the Galaxy A73.

Samsung Electronics is yet to make a final decision on the suppliers and quantities. It may evaluate the panels made by the Chinese and decide what quantity to source from which suppliers. The expectation is that if BOE and CSOT are able to provide panels at much cheaper prices then Samsung will increase the quantity it buys from them to improve its profit margins on the Galaxy A73.

Chinese companies are gradually taking on a greater role in Samsung’s supply chain. They’ve supplied batteries and CSOT was also in the running to supply OLED panels for Samsung’s low-end Galaxy M handsets.

The Galaxy A73 is likely to arrive in the first half of next year. Rumor has it that the handset will be equipped with a 108-megaixel camera. The entire 2022 Galaxy A lineup is also expected to feature optical image stabilization.
