After tests with BOE fail, Galaxy S21 should use panels manufactured by Samsung
Samsung Electronics recently tested OLED panels from the Chinese company BOE Technology as an alternative to its own OLED screens. The expectation is that these screens will equip the next smartphones of the S line of the South Korean company, but, according to the Asian press, the tests with BOE failed. so Galaxy S21 should use panels manufactured by Samsung.
According to these reports, BOE’s OLED panels failed in the first stage of the test applied by Samsung. Previous rumors pointed out that the Chinese supplier would provide 6.67-inch screens with a 90Hz refresh rate. So, if Samsung wants to keep these settings, it will have to do so via Samsung Display.
And, it seems, it was not only with Samsung that BOE failed the tests. The same happened in the production of the iPhone 12, of which the company will be one of the suppliers, alongside LG and Samsung itself.
One of the reasons for the search for BOE screens by Samsung would be the cost reduction for the Galaxy S21 line, except for the more robust model, which should follow the current line tops launched in February this year.
The most logical explanation for why the most powerful cell phone does not have BOE displays, if it had passed the tests, is the fact that the successor of the S20 Ultra has a 120 Hz refresh rate, which is not supported in this case.
