Business Korea reports that four Chinese smartphone makers are planning to adopt flexible OLEDs from LG Display in new smartphones in 2018. Huawei, Oppo, Vivo and Xiaomi are all said to have confirmed plans to take OLEDs and their combined sales could represent 20% to 30% of LG Display’s capacity if the level of 20 to 30 million handsets is achieved.

There were recently rumours that LG had lost a big order from Xiaomi because of an inability to supply. (Xiaomi Signs OLED Supply Deal with Samsung)
