JordanBaby, 25 Feb 2017Yes because Sony will produce their own display technology called "CLEDIS" or "Crystal LED Int... moreActually, cledis will be used for big commercial products, so there is no need for Sony to use it on mobile phone. Sony (part of Jdi) promises to use their superior oled technology by 2018.
i've heard some predictions not so long ago. 2012 end of the universe, trump has a 1% chance to become president
predictions based on what?
that's right... nothing
Yes because Sony will produce their own display technology called "CLEDIS" or "Crystal LED Integrated Structure" which is superior to both worlds of AMOLED and LED. Once this technology goes to Xperia devices, Samsung will be the biggest loser in display technology since they manufactured too many Super AMOLED panels that are considerably inferior to CLEDIS (CLEDIS uses self-emitting micro-LEDs which mean it can provide just as deep blacks as AMOLED without the cost of resolution and color accuracy) and Sony will regain their title as the best display manufacturer in the world, the Xperia XZ is a symbol of it. Besides, Sony is also the pioneer of OLED back then, but they knew that this technology will go anywhere and it's bad to give people fake colors as only LEDs can give the most color accurate colors (which is now then replaced by CLEDIS). Indeed their prediction is true, not even 50% of smartphones today have OLED screens, and DisplayMate & GSMArena considering the S7 Edge to have the most color accurate display is just plain bs. I have seen the S7 Edge's display once and while it's great with vibrant colors and inky blacks, it's nowhere close to the color accuracy of an LED display like Mate 9, iPhone 7 Plus, Xperia XZ, V20, etc. To Samsung loyalties, whether you like it or not, by next year, Sony's integration of CLEDIS to Xperia devices will make Samsung's display industry fall down so easily. Mark my words if you won't believe it
Samsung produces so much Amoled that it is only in quantity, but not in quality. This is why they have to out do other manufacturers in mass production to gain an advantage in the market share.
Lexonaut, 24 Feb 2017Nope. What you mean is SuperAMOLED (this is made by Samsung only, however it's just a marketin... moreOh yeah, you are absolutely right! Got mixed up and completely forgot about the "Super" part. Thanks, buddy! :D
Obi Wan Kenobi, 24 Feb 2017I thought Samsung exclusively made AMOLED. I think the report is confusing AMOLED with OLED.Nope. What you mean is SuperAMOLED (this is made by Samsung only, however it's just a marketing term). AMOLED means active-matrix organic light-emitting diode and is manufactured by other companies too. ;)

In fact, Samsung will ship as much displays than today, just that they can't keep up with the additional demand (ahem, SD835)
Good job Samsung, just leave the battery making part to others. We don't need anymore ka-boom.
That is still quite a large chunk owned by Samsung. It looks like that LG won't be making OLED for smartphones yet, again.
Samsung has 100% AMOLED marketshare, as it's Samsung brand.
They probably mean OLED including POLED, JOLED.
