Samsung to supply 6.9-inch OLED screens to Huawei

Huawei is making a phone even bigger than the iPhone X Plus or Galaxy Note 9

Huawei is making a phone even bigger than the iPhone X Plus or Galaxy Note 9

As per a report, Huawei has placed an order with Samsung Displays for 6.9-inch AMOLED panels that are intended for devices to be launched in the fourth quarter of 2018 or in early 2019.

It looks like Huawei is planning for something big for its upcoming device. A big screen is a start, but will it be enough to pull people away from the other 6-inch-plus phones coming this year?

Remember a few years ago when manufacturers were racing to make phones bigger and bigger and bigger?

Vivo NEX and its elevating camera are now official
Also keeping in line with modern trends is a dual-lens camera system on the back, that combines 12- and 5-megapixel sensors. There's also a voice assistant called Jovi to help users with tasks, though this will likely only be available in China .

Huawei's decision to opt for a massive panel for its next smartphone is likely driven by its desire to remain the top vendor in its home market of China. It's now the leading brand there, and wants that status quo to continue. This is why the company is concentrating on big display phones. These are meant to be used in a device launching in the fourth quarter of this year or the first quarter of 2019. In contrary, some reports also reveal that Huawei may not launch the Mate 20 this year, instead keep it for the Q1 of next year.

The screen is expected to be the biggest highlight of the Mate 20. In 2017, the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro arrived in October, suggesting we should expect the replacement phones to come around the same time this year.

There's multimedia at the heart of everything: photos and videos are the meat and potatoes of smartphones for most users and Huawei wants to maximize the enjoyment of this content. According to the leak, the Mate 20 will be powered by Kirin 980 chipset. On the camera front, the Mate 20 will come with a dual camera setup on the back with 12-megapixel primary sensor and 20-megapixel secondary sensor.
