It was said that Samsung’s Galaxy S21 series phones will use OLED screens produced by the Chinese technology company BOE, instead of the displays produced by Samsung Display. But apparently, Samsung’s move to cut costs did not end up as expected.
New reports from South Korea reported that the panels produced by BOE did not pass Samsung’s quality test. Screen panels are usually applied to phones after passing the quality test and mass production test. Although the screens produced by BOE are fitted to standards while they are still in the quality test phase, it is stated that the panel still has time to develop and pass the test.
BOE’s OLED displays failed to meet Samsung’s quality standards
Ross Young, CEO of DSCC, who is a display supply chain consultant, says BOE and display manufacturer China Star’s panels can not affect Samsung. This means that Samsung may have to reject other alternatives to its own Samsung Display.
Samsung Display is currently considered the largest OLED display maker. The screens produced by the company are used on the phones of giants such as Apple and OnePlus as well as Samsung. So even if BOE offers cheaper prices, Samsung will not want to lag behind its competitors by sacrificing quality. It should be noted, however, that BOE is an important manufacturer working with brands such as Huawei and Oppo.
Samsung’s partial orientation towards the BOE on the Galaxy S21 shows that it aims to reduce production costs on the new generation phones. Samsung, on the other hand, forces Samsung Display to lower panel prices.
