Who made the display on the Motorola Razr 2019? BOE, apparently

BOE has made an announcement on Weibo claiming that it supplied Motorola with flexible displays for the new Razr. Furthermore, it now asserts that it has done the same for the Huawei Mate X - and for the foldable Lenovo ThinkPad X1. Therefore, those interested in this upcoming notebook could look to the Razr for advance indications of its screen quality.

The Huawei Mate X, foldable Lenovo ThinkPad X1 and Motorola Razr 2019 reportedly have more than the obvious in common. Wei Wei, BOE Group's vice president, took to the company's official Weibo channel to announce that it is the supplier for all 3 cutting-edge devices. Therefore, either may be an approximate yardstick for the others' screen quality - and possible durability.

The BOE's executive's assertion is extremely plausible: all the companies mentioned in this context are Chinese, as is the display-maker itself. In addition, should it really have made panels for all 3 devices, it makes sense to say so now: the Razr has just been launched and is fresh in the mind, and the Mate X has seen its own domestic debut yesterday (November 15, 2019).

Furthermore, the Lenovo ThinkPad X1's upcoming foldable iteration is a hotly-anticipated release among laptop fans. In addition, as the doubtless largest device of all 3, it may be the best benchmark yet of how these next-generation form-factors will hold up on a day-to-day basis. To date, this PC is thought to have a 2K display measuring 13.3-inches in total.
