Huawei turns to LG for the curved OLED display on its "Ultra-Premium" phone
For LG, providing the display for the Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS could be a way to get its foot in the door. After all, at this point, it is the only Huawei-branded handset that uses a display provided by LG. If the latter passes this test, it could help the South Korean consumer electronics giant buff up its top and bottom line. After all, Huawei is the third largest smartphone company in the world, and has aspirations to be number one.
LG is a relative newcomer to the business of selling OLED panels for smartphones. The Pixel 2 XL, built by LG, features one of the company's displays and it has had several issues including burn-in. Huawei must have felt pretty certain that this wouldn't be an issue with the Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS. After all, it would look pretty bad for Huawei if its ultra-premium phone has a problem with its screen.
