Samsung Display develops foldable OLED displays for Oppo, Xiaomi and GoogleKorean news outlet The Elec reports that, currently, Samsung Display is developing foldable OLED panels for future foldable smartphones by Oppo, Xiaomi, and Google. Moreover, these smartphones are expected to be launched this year.

Last year, Oppo has showcased a 7.7-inch prototype of a foldable smartphone considering BOE, Visionox, and Samsung Display to be its suppliers. However, for this year's ready-to-market model, Samsung Display remains the sole supplier. Oppo's upcoming foldable smartphone will fold inwards and will have a 7.7-inch display when unfolded.

Again last year, Xiaomi unveiled a 7.92-inch prototype with display from Visionox. For the 2021 Xiaomi foldable smartphone, an 8.03-inch display will be used with the outer display being 6.38 inches in size. Suppliers for this display are Samsung Display and CSOT. The latter, together with BOE, supplied the foldable panel used in the Motorola Razr 2019.

The report continues saying that Google has requested from Samsung Display to develop a 7.6-inch foldable OLED panel. This smartphone will also fold inward.

It looks like that 2021 will be the onset year for foldable smartphones. Omdia expects foldable OLED sales to reach US$2.1 billion this year, a 203% increase from 2020.Source
