Samsung is planning on using the same suppliers for the Note 7, as it did for the S7 and the S7 Edge, released in the early part of this year.
Exclusive Touchscreen Suppliers
Though the suppliers of the display remain the same, the company will put the touchscreens together. The OLED parts are likely to come from Dow Chemical and Samsung SDI as well as Idemitsu Kosan, who are the ones that supplied the AMOLED touchscreens for the S7 and the S7 Edge.
Samsung SDI is reported to supply the phosphorescence, green material and Dow Chemical will bring in the red, whereas Idemitsu Kosan will be in charge of the blue material. These three companies will be exclusively supplying the materials to the Note 7 for its lifetime. As they have been selected for supplying the OLED material, they are bound to show an exceptional performance this year.
World’s Most Influential Smartphone Maker
Samsung happens to be the most influential smartphone maker in the world today and has ample influence on the industry offering OLED materials. The company also happens to be the largest users in case of AMOLED display for its smart devices. Hence, companies selected as its suppliers will go on to experience a great year, while other suppliers could go through a slump.
Mass Production Predicted
It is also reported that the company will start a mass production of the Note 7 next month and the phone will be released in August this year. Initially, it is expected that the company will manufacture about 5 million devices.
Another rumor has it that the Note 7 comes only in the curved display version. It will have a screen size of 5.8 inches and a RAM of 6 GB.
Sticking On to Success
The S7 and the S7 Edge were both launched having AMOLED displays and they went on to become very successful. The company is naturally sticking on this formula for success and will continue to get the same three OLED suppliers for the Note 7. This report also indicates that the company will continue to have the Quad HD panel, 1440 pixels for its new Note 7.
Popularity of OLED displays
This type of OLED display has been increasingly popular and many smartphones now boast of this technology. Samsung is the biggest OLED display company and will probably continue the tradition. Samsung’s displays have been seen in the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga as well as the Apple Watch 2, which is headed for release during this fall. Samsung is boosting the OLED display in order to prepare itself for Apple’s order of 100 million panels to be used in the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus in the coming year.
The display on the Note 7 will follow those on the S7 and the S7 Edge and will have the best display available in today’s mobile market. This is firstly due to the material and also due to the dual edge, curved screen design.
