It is also being speculated that these panels will be used for Huawei's upcoming smartphone scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2018 or first quarter of next year. The panels in question will be flat, not curved.
Huawei has reportedly placed an order for 6.9-inch AMOLED panel with Samsung Display. The report quotes sources from the display industry, who has revealed that Samsung is now showing samples to Huawei.
We haven't heard much else about the Mate 20 Pro or the standard Huawei Mate 20 yet, but one early rumor suggests it could have an in-display fingerprint scanner, so that's another way it might stand out.
Given the OLED nature of the panel and its size, it looks like the upcoming smartphone from Huawei will be a flagship device. It's worth remembering that Huawei's Mate series usually includes two devices, and the 6.9-inch model may be labeled Pro, and come alongside a slightly smaller phone.
If you like the sound of that you've got a few months to wait yet, as we're not expecting the Mate 20 range to launch until October or November.
The Mate 10 Pro also integrates an OLED display. There are still some outliers in the 5.5 to 6-inch range, and Samsung's Note line has always pushed the boundaries, but the days of the almost-tablet (remember phablets?) are over. The report notes that the Huawei P20 and P20 Pro phones feature 5.8-inch and 6.1-inch displays, while the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro have 5.9-inch and 6-inch screens, respectively.
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.
