According to Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC), Samsung is looking for a flexible 6.67 inch OLED display. This screen is expected to be displayed on one of the Galaxy flagships which will be launched next year. The name of the featured series is still unclear.
Along with a 6.67-inch screen, Samsung will also use a 6.6-inch BOE screen with Full HD resolution on the Galaxy A91.
After Samsung and LG, BOE is the largest OLED supplier for smartphones. However, this company is the top LCD supplier in the world. By using the BOE display, Samsung has the potential to reduce smartphone costs.
Samsung is saturated with a sharp decline in smartphone demand after the outbreak of Covid-19 worldwide. In India, the company has launched a new flagship series with the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20 Plus just weeks before the lockout takes effect. The company still cannot launch the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra in India.
The fate of the smartphone industry will be decided after the second phase of locking will be lifted on May 3. The Indian Cellular and Electronics Association (ICEA) and the Confederation of All Indian Traders (CAIT) have urged the Indian government to allow sales of mobile phones, laptops, desktops, storage devices, and other electronic products during national lockouts.
ICEA shares a list of impacts that the country could face if electronic products were not included in the essential categories of government.
