Huawei P40 Pro+ uses Samsung OLED, P40 Pro has a mix of suppliers

Ivan, 02 April 2020

According to a report by Korean outlet TheELec Huawei is exclusively using Samsung-made OLED screens for its upcoming P40 Pro+ flagship.

The report says that for the P40 Pro, Huawei is relying on a mix of Samsung, BOE and LG Display OLEDs while the P40 is using only BOE-made OLED screens.

This report contradicts an earlier leaked list of component suppliers, which pointed to BOE and LG display as suppliers for the Huawei P40 series, and BOE CEO's earlier announcement on Weibo that BOE was exclusively making the panels on the new P40 series.

The Huawei P40 has a 6.1-inch 1080x2340px OLED screen, while the P40 Pro and P40 Pro+ have 6.58-inch 1200x2640px OLED panels.

Report: Huawei P40 Pro+ uses Samsung OLED, P40 Pro using a mix of OLEDs

The screens on last year's Huawei P30 Pro were reportedly made by Chinese BOE and not Samsung.

The report says only around 20% of Huawei phones use OLED, but the company will be looking to transition more of its portfolio to OLED screens.
