Huawei turns to LG for the curved OLED display on its "Ultra-Premium" phone
Huawei is now apparently turning to LG to source OLED panels for certain models. The very first Huawei-branded handset to feature an LG screen is the Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS. The ultra-premium handset carries a 6-inch OLED screen with curved edges and an under-display fingerprint scanner. Priced at €1,695 (equivalent to $2,103 USD) for the 256GB model and €2,095 (equivalent to $2,599 USD) for the 512GB version, this is obviously not a phone that will end up in many consumers' hands.

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.
