A new leak suggest that Samsung is now outsourcing their AMOLED display panels to the Chinese OEM Huawei. The panels manufactured by Samsung display previously used to don the flagship and mid-range devices from the company's stable.
The Korean giant hadn't shown much of an interest to outsource their display but new move might be a huge strategic decision from their side. Previously the fate of the Samsung Display was heavily tied with that of Samsung's mobile divisions. A few Chinese companies like Oppo and Vivo still sources Samsung's AMOLED panels, but the number are quite less. At least it isn't sufficient to play an important role in the Samsung Display's profit charts.
Do note that this is still in the stage of leaks and there's no official word regarding it. But just in case if deals has really inked out, then Samsung is in for a huge gain. Huawei unlike most other Chinese brands has a global footprint. Many of their devices are popular in parts of EU and USA. In fact their Honor series of device are high in demand at the States.
Plus Huawei is also preparing this year's Nexus device in collaboration with Google. The US based Search Engine multinational has inked a deal with two companies namely Huawei and LG for this year's Nexus devices. Previous leaks suggest that the Huawei device will come with a 5.7 inch Quad HD display with a Snapdragon 810/820 SoC coupled with 4GB of RAM. But now we know that the display upfront will boast a familiar AMOLED panel from Samsung - so expect a similar display to the one on the Samsung Galaxy S6. On the other hand the LG device is hinted to be camera centric device.
