In the second half of this year, several Chinese smartphone manufacturers will bring smartphones with a curved display on the market. In early March of this year, it was announced that Samsung had entered into contracts for the provision of curved screens with the Chinese smartphone manufacturers Huawei, Xiaomi, and Vivo. In late March, this message was followed by the rumor that the successor of the Huawei Mate S would have a curved display.
New information brought out by Business Korea, notes that LG has also signed supply contracts with Chinese smartphone manufacturers. According to reports from Business Korea, while Samsung mainly supplies curved screens to Huawei, on the other hand, LG takes delivery for Xiaomi.
Samsung is currently the only smartphone manufacturer which actively uses curved screens in its Galaxy S6 Edge and Galaxy S7 Edge series. Samsung has sold the screens to Chinese Vivo and the company recently introduced Xplay 5 with dual Edge-screen in China. The devices of Huawei and Xiaomi with a curved screen will be presented in September.
It is noteworthy that, although LG has handed over its curved displays to other manufacturers, remarkably, LG itself has not yet released smartphones using its own curved displays this year. So far LG G Flex series is the only series of smartphones that LG used its curved displays on. Late last year, the company already suggested that no successor for these devices would come.
