Samsung could supply 6.9-inch AMOLED panel for the Huawei Mate 20

Samsung could supply 6.9-inch AMOLED panel for the Huawei Mate 20

Oppo, another Chinese brand, is reportedly sourcing curved panels from Samsung for its next flagship as well. In contrary, some reports also reveal that Huawei may not launch the Mate 20 this year, instead keep it for the Q1 of next year. If the report is to be true, Huawei will do for display diagonals what it did for rear cameras: push the numbers to a new extreme.

Although the Mate 20 Pro is not explicitly referenced, considering the wide diagonal of the display and the traditional lineup of Huawei flagships, everything points to the next generation Mate.

The Apple iPhone X Plus is expected to arrive with a display size of 6.46-inches while the Galaxy Note 9's display is believed to measure 6.38-inches.

It is pretty clear that smartphones with a large footprint are here to stay.

That's according to The Bell, which says - quoting display industry sources - that Huawei is now sampling OLED panels of that size from Samsung Display, for use with a phone, and that given the timing it's likely they're headed for the Huawei Mate 20 Pro.

The report further adds that Huawei is expected to release the larger display device in the fourth quarter of 2018 or the first quarter of 2019.

Commentators claim the Mate 20's 6.9-inch screen is aimed at Chinese consumers, who are demanding bigger phones for the large screen space taken up by Chinese characters.

If you like the sound of that you've got a few months to wait yet, as we're not expecting the Mate 20 range to launch until October or November.

Reports also suggest that the new Mate 20's display will be bigger than any smartphones available now in the market. As for the specs, we don't know much about the handset right now.
