Smartphone manufacturers are switching from LCD to OLED. More and more mid-range and flagship smartphones, especially Chinese brands, are equipped with OLED screens. And this trend will continue in the second half of the year.
According to Gizchina, citing a source in the industry, the shortage of quality LCDs has forced manufacturers to pay even more attention to OLED panels. According to an insider, most smartphones coming out in the second half of 2021 will be equipped with OLED screens. LCD panels, however, will remain a hallmark of only entry-level models with prices below $ 155.
The question is about the quality of OLED panels. The fact is that the screen is one of the most expensive smartphones, and OLED panels are significantly more expensive than similar LCDs. As a result, in pursuit of lower costs, most manufacturers are likely to prefer inexpensive panels. They will come up with different ways to save money on installing modern screens.
On the other hand, inside information is encouraging. The fact is that OLED panels have many advantages over LCD screens. This includes improved color rendition, high contrast, and deep saturated blacks. Due to their low thickness, such screens fit perfectly into the slim body of modern smartphones. We must not forget about the high energy efficiency of OLED, which in the future will have a positive effect on the autonomy of new smartphones.
