Samsung goes with OCTA tech

Samsung Display and BOE supplied OLED panels for the Black Shark 3, the world’s first 5G-based gaming phone, according to industry sources on April 2.

Released in China on March 3, the Black Shark 3 series consists of a standard 6.6-inch screen model and a 7.1-inch Pro model. The standard model was fitted with Samsung Display’s rigid OLED panels, while the high-end Pro model went with BOE’s 2.5D flexible OLED panels using Add-on Touch technology.

The panels were produced from BOE’s B7 line, marking the second time to churn out 2.4D OLEDs. The first was when it supplied to Huawei’s flagship smartphone P40 series early this year – also using the add-on solution.

BOE succeeded in mass-producing the flexible OLED panels from its B7 line in 2017. The firm is currently expanding flexible OLED capacity at its B11 line, as well.

The screens from Samsung Display for the standard Black Shark 3 model are OCTA panels, the same type of panels the Samsung affiliate supplied to Huawei’s P40 Pro and Pro+ models. These panels are considered to be a notch above the add-on touch solution. BOE has yet to master the OCTA technology and is still said to be struggling with yield issues.

Samsung Display had exclusively supplied OLED panels to both the standard and Pro models of the Black Shark 2 series released in 2019. This year, Xiaomi decided to diversify its portfolio by adding BOE. Xiaomi plans to globally release the Black Shark 3 series soon.
