In August, Samsung is expected to launch it’s new folding Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3, both of which show that the South Korean giant managed to stabilize its supply of flexible OLED displays. That’s why sources in Seoul confirmed this week that the brand is now ready to sell its solutions to third parties.
As a result of the process of approaching Google, Samsung is expected to provide its first collapsible OLED panels to the search giant in October. The idea is that the display is present in what is being called the Pixel Fold, which must have a 7.6-inch screen.
Xiaomi and Vivo are also expected to be graced with folding OLED displays at the end of the third/beginning of the fourth quarter of this year. Thus, everything indicates that the end of 2021 should be marked by the launch of devices of these brands.
Besides, Chinese sources claim that Vivo’s flexible smartphone has an 8-inch folding screen. In Xiaomi’s case, the specifications of the brand’s second model are still unknown.
Samsung is yet to take new orders in early 2022 and everything indicates that OPPO will also become a South Korean customer. That’s because the Chinese rejected solutions from its compatriots BOE and Visionox to bet on the company’s panels.
OPPO is planning to release a clamshell-shaped folding device, sporting a 7.1-inch folding panel on the inside and a 1.5- or 2-inch external screen. It could become a worthy rival to the Galaxy Z Flip’s own lineup Samsung. So far, none of the companies mentioned have commented on the matter. Anyway, everything indicates that Samsung tends to further extend its leadership in the market of OLED displays.
