According to the recent report, Samsung poised to continue its own OLED display panels from Samsung Electronics for the upcoming Galaxy S21 series. Earlier it reported that Samsung has hired BOE electronics as a cheaper alternative for the 90Hz OLED display panels for Galaxy S21. Probably, the main reason to continue its own screen panels, is that BOE has failed the primary display tests which are quite disappointing.
Next year’s flagship Samsung Galaxy S21 or Galaxy S30 may come with its own OLED screen panels. Reports mention that the BOE has failed the South Korean giants display testing process. These display panels could have been used in the flagship Galaxy S21 smartphone. This incident ends the probability of a screen panel’s mass production from the Chinese firm BOE. As the firm failed the very first quality testing stage which was the primary stage before mass production.
Samsung was searching for a cheaper alternative for display panels so that it could cut the production costs for its flagships. A report from the display market research firm DSCC highlights that the BOE was tasked to provide the 6.67 inches display panels to Samsung. Meantime the failure of the quality testing stage ends this possibility. However, the BOE along with LG and Samsung also tasked to provide the OLED display panels for the iPhone 12 series, which has expected to launch later this year.
Earlier this year Samsung unveiled Galaxy S20 series with display panels of 60Hz and 120Hz refreshing rate capacity. Obviously, the company’s request to BOE for 90Hz OLED display panels meant for the entry-level Galaxy S21 model. The top-end Galaxy S21 or Galaxy S30 model will feature 120Hz refreshing rate display panels which will be Samsung’s own production. Samsung’s Galaxy S20 Ultra features the best display and won several display awards too. We can say that Samsung’s quest for an affordable alternative has limited at least for the upcoming Galaxy S21 and it must rely on its own display production.
