The Huawei P30 and P30 Pro will feature OLED displays made by Samsung
Huawei is set to unveil its first pair of flagships for the year later this month. The company, at an event in Paris, will launch the P30 and P30 Pro, the direct successors to the incredibly successful P20 and P20 Pro that were released last year. While photography will be the main focus of the devices, it would appear that Huawei isn’t taking any prisoners in other departments either.
According to a new report, the P30 and P30 Pro will feature OLED displays made by Samsung. Huawei has generally ignored Samsung when shopping for display hardware but the company, over the past year, has developed the foundations of a business partnership with its rivals. The P20 Pro featured Samsung-made OLED panels, and so did the Mate 20 X. Of course, Huawei has also preferred to source for its OLED panels from BOE and, at times, LG—as seen on the Mate 10 Pro and Mate 20 Pro.
In any case, Samsung’s OLEDs are the best in the business, and most other OEMs—Xiaomi and Apple, for example—use Samsung panels on their flagships.
Sadly, the displays on P30 and P30 Pro will be simple FHD+ ones. Samsung usually reserves its QHD OLED panels for its own devices—although it’s sold them to other OEMs on a few occasions. Last year’s P20 made do with an LCD display, so it’s nice to see an OLED on this year’s iteration.
