Nokia to break up with Samsung as supplier, too, as 'the firewall is as sturdy as a pile of kimchi'

0. phoneArena 15 Feb 2013, 06:20 posted on

Conflict of interest is cited as Nokia is straight-out concerned that information might leak from Samsung's conveyor belts to the higher-ups, indicating what handsets the company has in the pipeline...

Stop worrying about Nokia, Nokia will be just fine. Nokia is making a very smart move here in fact Samsung is not the only manufacturer of parts!! Its strictly a smart business move on Nokia's part.

@emadshiny, I think they were referring to NEW OLED tech that is yet to come out. Samsung owns AMOLEDs but they are not the only innovators in OLED.

Nokia N85 had AMOLED display and was announced in August 2008...

However Nokia does not say that AMOLED tech is theirs but says that Samsung cancelled the orders it made, and may be now using the new tech in their own device.

If you believe what he mentioned 100% for sure

But the contract paper between those kind of companies is not just piece of s**t.
You cant just order and cancel whenever you want
Dont you think? Its a huge deal made by the law

A smart move by cutting off a major supplier? Real smart. Apple decided to do that too and look at the disgusting quality control problems they have now. Not to mention the eroding profit margins as well.

"Samsung is using industrial reconnaissance to steal its opponents and rivals technology. "

Do provide empirical evidence of this actually happening.

This is the first time i'm hearing Nokia say something like this (if there was any in the past, enlighten me, i would like to know.)
So one way to look at it now is Nokia playing the lawsuit game soon
Or they stay quiet, Or they change their supplier. Of course, like you said, if this news is entirely 100% true.

where'd you see Nokia claiming AMOLED as their tech? Bsides Super AMOLED is Samsung's term for an AMOLED like Nokia's ClearBlack Displays used in their AMOLED screens or PureMotion on the 920's LCD screen
Companies have different ways to innovate with technology existing standard technology and Nokia are somehow afraid that you might see the Galaxy S IV with a ClearBlack type of display which is clearly Nokia's work or a PureMotion type of display!

Okay, my only question is this, what phone and what OS was going to use this Screen?.

See, the problem I am having is this, strange that ever since MS show up in Nokia company and their mobile market has fallen on hard times, they are screaming, " Samsung stole".

In today cell phone world everyone gets their part from the same people..

Samsung use Qualcomm chipset, so do several companies do that means Samsung stole from other companies?

Nokia needs to get their act together it's not 1 component that is keeping them from being number one.

Nokia's first AMOLED display phone N85 released in Q3 2008
Samsung's first Samsung i8910 release Q1 2009

Its not about who invented AMOLED, its about technology (ex: CBD of Nokia), form factor and usage.

Sorry if I'm wrong..that's what I found...

Nokia didn't throw a fit back then, did they? But then Apple happened... litigation went crazy, and the noisy goofball got rewarded. It showed the others that bad behavior and rocking-the-boat pays off. It is no surprise that Nokia and others may join this bandwagon. They are learning from Apple that bad behavior and childish outcry pays well for a minimum in legitimate effort. The squeeky wheel got the grease. Others will soon follow suit... and I mean that both figuratively and literally.

By the way, have you come across any disclaimer that reads, "The 'manufacturer' has the right to cancel the orders at any given time depending on the availablity of the raw materials..." or whatever? That's quite possible too... Just giving you an example...

This is too specific though. In order for Samsung to be able to meet those yields, they would have to know about the technology a long, LONG time ago.

If Nokia commissioned Samsung to build an OLED plant, then Nokia deserves to ripped off if they signed a contract that would allow Samsung to jack their plant. haha

HAHA I find it quite amusing how the only defense these companies have against the upcoming Asian juggernauts is to ruin their reputation by spreading false accusations, use of litigation in their home turf, and using the media.

Sure ZTE and Huawei has insider connections, it is called business NETWORKING and humans have been using that to their advantage for inside scoops for their entire existence. They even had to ban certain components, insider trading comes to mind.

These accusations against Samsung are even worse and more disgusting. Oh no, they cancelled our orders because their owner/parent company wanted them to concentrate on their own family business. How dare they! Those thieves!

Ever stop to think that if they had the factories set up to build OLED screens that size, that they would have access to the technology a long time ago?

I can't imagine that Nokia would teach them how to build an OLED manufacturing plant and NOT have a contract that disallows Samsung from cancelling their orders. It would be a breach of contract and no way Samsung would in court from that.

This is obviously BS.

Sony has used clear black filters for awhile now. They call it tru black or something. The only reason Sony isn't getting accused is because they are not HUGE like Samsung is.

Look at what Apple started. The mobile industry is becoming a land mine now.

The history of OLED hits way back to the year 1950. Samsung started mass producing it in 2002-04... Almost a decade for a company to recieve billions.
Nokia released the N85 with AMOLED in 2008, but the 1st was BenQ-Siemens S88 in 2006.
That long enough?
By the way, who said Samsung built an OLED plant for Nokia?? Samsung built in on their own will, and when interests arose, other OEMs started ordering for themselves.
The 2nd part of your comment is delusional!!

Look up the word IF in the dictionary and follow the context. Reading comprehension should be a better friend to you.

SLCD joint venture came to an end recently. Samsung was the majority owner of the SLCD and sony sold their shares to samsung last year when they were having a lot of funding issues
