According to Korean media reports, South Korean DAP company has begun to supply PCB motherboards for Samsung Galaxy S11 series in mass production at the beginning of the month.
Previously, the high-end mobile phone PCB boards of Samsung were mainly provided by its own Samsung Motors, but this year Samsung Motors reduced PCB production, and its peer LG Electronics closed the PCB business. Due to the high share of DAP’s PCB boards on low-priced phones, this time entering the Galaxy S11 supply chain will help it improve its revenue and profitability.
This year, Samsung Electro-Mechanics accounted for nearly 30% of Samsung’s smartphone board supplies, followed by Korea Circuit in the mid-20% and DAP with just over 15%. “DAP will see both its revenues and operating profit improve in the new year by supplying more to premium smartphones,” said one market source close to the matter.
In 2018, DAP’s sales rose 2.1% on-year to KRW 304 billion. Operating profit shot up 55.6% to KRW 11 billion. This year, its revenues as of the third quarter stood at KRW 206 billion, down 6.5% from the year before. Operating profit tumbled 8.17% to KRW 1.3 billion.
The data at hand shows that the Galaxy S11 series will use a 120Hz high refresh rate AMOLED full screen, it will be powered by Snapdragon 865 flagship platform with LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.0 internal storage, its rear main camera upgrade to 108MP SOCELL Bright HM1, Running Android 10 and battery capacity reaches 5000mAh.
Compared with the Galaxy S10 +, the Galaxy S11 Plus has been significantly upgraded in terms of performance, image, and screen. It is expected to be released around mid-February next year.
