Xiaomi Redmi Pro Is Going To Use Chinese-made OLED Panels

By 12:48 Wed, 04 Aug 2021 Comments

Xiaomi announced the Redmi Pro at a special event yesterday, and this is the Chinese company's most high-discontinue Redmi-branded device ever. One thing that stands out in its spec list is the fact that it uses an Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) display. That's not something you'd expect to see in a phone that starts at $225 - becautilize Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) panels are notoriously more expensive than LCDs.

Yet if you do acquire a phone with an Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) screen, then that panel is probably made by Samsung, since the Korean company apparently holds a market share of almost 95% in the space. Well, that expectation isn't being met in the Xiaomi Redmi Pro.

This device does not utilize Samsung-made OLEDs, instead opting to source them from two Chinese companies: EverDisplay and BOE. According to a recent report out of the country, EverDisplay is the first supplier, and in case it can't handle Xiaomi's orders, then BOE will be used.

We assume that the decision to go with Chinese suppliers for the Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) classy screen is one factor that has helped the Redmi Pro's price remain pretty low, at least compared to similarly-specced competitors. The phone's 5.5-inch 1080p display has a 60,000:1 contrast ratio and fully covers the NTSC color space.
