Announced in early March, the new Black Shark 3 and 3 Pro are already available in several markets and carry the title of gamer smartphones with 5G support. Recently, we saw that one of the devices was dismantled to show how Xiaomi handles the cooling system.
Now, after a few weeks on the market, new analyzes have found an interesting difference between the two models. According to sources working with Xiaomi itself, the Black Shark 3 has its 6.7-inch OCTA OLED screen manufactured by Samsung Display.
The Black Shark 3 Pro model has a flexible 7.1-inch OLED panel from BOE. That is, the device has the same display used in the new Huawei P40 and the foldable Mate Xs.
However, as much as it seems that the two devices have equivalent technologies when it comes to the display, market sources say that the screen produced by Samsung is superior to that of BOE.
Samsung Display is the only manufacturer in the world to master OCTA OLED technology. BOE still needs to improve its solution. Therefore, the company continues to supply inferior displays.
