Previously, Huawei’s Mate 20 series devices used LG and China’s BOE screens. But this year’s Huawei Mate 30 series will no longer be supplied by the mentioned two manufacturers.
According to Sina, the Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro smartphones will use Samsung’s AMOLED display instead of the display panels produced by LG and BOE used in the Mate 20 series. Interestingly, earlier we heard that BOE intends to continue to supply display panels for the Mate 30 series. But it turns out Huawei has made its decision and chose Samsung as the screen supplier for the upcoming flagships.
Huawei is still worried about the color and brightness of the Mate 20 Pro display panel. This is one of the main reasons why it is planning to get the front panels of its next-gen flagships by more mature panel makers.
At present, there is no official confirmation of the displays used by Mate 30 series devices. But according to the information released previously, the Huawei Mate 30 Pro will use the large curvature waterfall screen design. Plus, it will use bangs to accommodate the 3D structured light sensor. We should also point out the Mate 30 Pro has a much narrower border than the Mate 20 Pro.
By the way, much earlier, we heard that due to the quality problems of 3M products, Huawei asked BOE to change its OCA supplier from 3M to other vendors. Of course, this is expected to have an impact on product development. But the manufacturer is not satisfied with the quality of the optical films supplied for the Huawei Mate X.
