    Perfect news…the Chinese are the only hope for an “affordable” AMOLED display smartphone. We have always had concerns for Chinese product durability but the likes of Xiaomi and Huawei have shown that Chinese stuffs can be really cool. Left for Samsung, only the elite will ever use AMOLED screen devices.

    I don’t think “rival” is the correct word here since the quality of their displays won’t be the same as Samsung’s.

        Do you actually need to see one to believe that they won’t be able to match the current leader of OLED mobile screens that has almost decade head start?

        Yes Chinese technology now already beyond western countries.
        They have more resources and market so it is a no brainer that they will build their own factory so they will not depend on other countries anymore.

        Very eager to see OLED inside cheaper china smartphone. I don’t have enough money to buy premium smartphone so i hope in the future OLED can be mainstream.
