A few months ago, Apple signed an agreement for the supply of OLED displays for the future 5.4- and 6.1-inch iPhone models with the Chinese company BOE. Such a move, obviously, will reduce the cost of devices. Apparently, Apple will not be the only A-brand that uses BOE solutions. A fresh leak indicates that Samsung is also interested in the products of the Chinese company.
News from South Korea claims Samsung is considering installing BOE displays in next-generation flagship devices. Sources from China confirm this information. Samsung is reportedly in talks with three potential suppliers.
Rumors that Samsung is going to buy displays for flagships from a Chinese manufacturer, although it itself produces displays for smartphones, may seem implausible. But the thing is that Samsung Display currently offers screens with refresh rates of 60 and 120 Hz, while for BOE solutions this figure is 90 Hz. Although the current Galaxy S20 family has screens with a refresh rate of 120 Hz, installing a 90-Hz display from BOE can significantly reduce the final cost of smartphones, which will help Samsung strengthen its market position.
For its part, BOE declares that it is ready to do business with any companies that are interested in its products.
