BOE is not the only OLED maker to supply to Huawei's Mate 40 series - Korea's Samsung and LG Display will also ship similar panels to Huawei, some of these will use on-cell touch and some will use add-on touch panels, this depends on the Mate 40 model.

On-Cell touch means that the touch layer is embedded before the encapsulation (TFE) layer. This enables thinner panels with better optical features. Samsung is already producing such panels, branded as Y-OCTA (or Youm On-Cell Touch AMOLED).
