Rumours about Apple shifting to OLED displays for the iPhone had been rife for a long while, but it seems the Apple of the East will beat the Apple of the West to it.
It is believed that Xiaomi is prepping OLED displays for its forthcoming phones. According to a few Korean outlets, Xiaomi will be offloading OLED display manufacture to LG Displays, which happens to be one of the biggest suppliers of displays to smartphone manufacturers.
Gizchina News of the week
The shift will take time, however. 2016 is when the shift to OLED Xiaomi phones is being expected to initiate… add 3-4 months to that and that’s when the first OLED Xiaomi phones will show up, if this bit of news has any truth to it. Word is that this wont be anytime before Q3 2016, so waiting for the OLED Xiaomi with bated breath might not be a great idea.
In related news, a Xiaomi conference has been scheduled for the 11th next month. Xiaomi have more than just the Mi 5 due (the Mi Pad 2 being a contender), so it’ll be interesting to see what eventually turns up that day.
It would be nice to see OLED. MiNote’s LCD panel is good quality, but far from perfect.
Mi4c with OLED display is my dream
Mi5 might be the only phone that can pry me away from my MX5.
Dear balcobomber25, as a m1 note owner, last week I tryed mx5 for 6 days. Mx5 is great phone with flyme 5. Optimization is really good on mx5. I can’t compare mx5 with m1 note about optimization. Now I can make a sense about your meizu love 🙂
Funny thing is I never really cared about Meizu before this phone. I was (and still am) a diehard Xiaomi fanboy.
OLED is the way to go.
will it increase costs ?
You can bet on it
aww man … that sucks !
It won’t be passed on to the consumer because other costs will be reduced which will offset the difference.
*Good* Amoleds are better than even the best LCDs/IPS.
“Bad” Amoleds are worse than LCDs…
So depending on their implementation (pixel matrix of choice, color callibration, use of dark tones wtihin their OS) it can be an excellent choice … or not.
oled burn is still present on current gen
A lot less so than in the past. I think -by now- it’s practically a non-issue for most users (average usage over the course of 2 years), of course it still poses problems for those who use their device (with screen on) for more than 6-8 hours every day and/or those willing to make serious use of their device for 3+ years
let’s see when oneplus x buyers will have remorse about the amoled screen.. touchwiz is optimised for oled and moves their icons every minute by a few pixels
Maybe oneplus is using similar optimizations … indeed let’s see.
As long as they don’t ask for the cheapest screen possible it shouldn’t be a concern.
