Earlier this week, a new report surfaced that claimed that Samsung and BOE will be responsible for supplying the display for the Huawei Mate X2, while another report also revealed the camera lens supplier of the upcoming foldable smartphone.
According to a ChinaStarMarket report, the Chinese tech giant had initially only contracted exclusively with BOE to support the domestic supply chain. Both companies are based in China, thus, it is understood that the exclusive deal was to benefit their home country’s industry. Although now, it seems that Huawei is planning on including Samsung within its supply chain to supply flexible screens for its second gen Mate X foldable handset as well.
As per sources close to the matter, the Mate X2’s display will be supplied by Samsung. However, a separate report from known tipster Ross Young, the founder and lead analyst DisplaySearch and DSCC, claims that Samsung Display was initially planned to supply the flexible panels along with BOE. But now, Huawei will only place orders for the Mate X2’s displays with just BOE. Unfortunately, we have no way of confirming either reports at the moment.
Furthermore, the ChinaStarMarket report also added that the Mate X2’s camera lenses will be supplied by Sunny Optical and O-film Tech. The former is a known camera lens supplier, which is even rumored to supply Apple with camera lenses for its 2021 iPhone and iPad models
