Who made the display on the Mi Note 10?
Xiaomi launched the much-awaited Mi CC9 Pro in China about a week ago, and followed it up with the launch of the Mi Note 10 in Europe the very next day. While most sources assume the display on the devices was produced by Samsung, it would appear that the reality of the matter is slightly different.
According to a post by Xiaomi staff Liu Anzhen, the display on the Mi CC9 Pro—and the Mi Mote 10, presumably—was made by Visionox. Visionox was also the company behind the Mi Mix Alpha's futuristic display, so it makes sense that they were handed the keys to the CC9 Pro's project.
We were one of several outlets to assume that the panel was a Super AMOLED one made by Samsung Display, mostly because most of Xiaomi's recent AMOLED phones have sported Super AMOLED displays.
In fact, GSMArena also has the Mi Note 10 listed with a Super AMOLED display. Heading over to the Mi Note 10's official page on the Xiaomi website confirms Anzhen's post, however, as there's no mention of a Super AMOLED display anywhere.
Admittedly, OEMs don't need to specify if their panels are made by Samsung. The Pixel 4 XL uses a Samsung AMOLED panel, for example, but there's no mention of it on the phone's official page. Xiaomi, however, has usually advertised their phones with that particular feature. Both the Mi 9 and Mi 9 SE have their displays listed as being made by Samsung, and it's a bit curious that the Mi Note 10 wouldn't if its display was actually made by the South Korean company.
It's safe to say to say that the displays on the Mi Note 10 and Mi CC9 Pro aren't made by Samsung, but by Visionox.
