The company's decision to opt for Chinese OLED panels is actually related to the company is looking to be more competitive in the entry-level smartphone market. OLED panels from China are going to cost less as compared to the ones that Samsung Display makes.
This means that Samsung would be able to bring OLED panels to cheaper devices while being competitive at the same time. The upcoming M series of smartphones from Samsung could be the first to utilize OLED panels provided by BOE, a famous Chinese manufacturer.
A new report from China talks about how TCL will now be supplying OLED panels to Samsung Electronics. Both companies already enjoy a close working relationship. Samsung sold its LCD production line to TCL last year and also acquired a stake in the company. TCL is already responsible for over 15% of Samsung's LCD panel requirements for its TVs.
