We’re just a week away from the launch of the Huawei Mate X2 foldable phone that will be going to happen on February 22. The phone will come with a new design and will be powered by the latest Kirin processor.
Previously it was reported that Huawei has used Samsung’s foldable display for the Mate X2 smartphone. However, it was later revealed that the company is only using foldable panels made by BOE and not by Samsung.
Now a new report describes the reason Huawei not purchasing foldable panels from Samsung and choose to go solo with BOE.
According to the information, Huawei and Samsung Display finalized their supply agreement of folding panels in October last year. But after a number of reconsideration, Huawei decided to move on from Samsung and switched completely to China’s BOE Display.
Some Korean analysts believe that this move from Huawei is taken to avoid potential disruption in the flagship caused by the supply chain of important component such as display panels. So, it’s better to go for home grown solutions rather than an overseas display maker.
