The phone features a flexible edge-type and notch-type 6.2" 3120x1440 AMOLED display, and indeed it is likely that this display is produced by Sharp itself.

The OLED displays are reportedly being produced at Sharp's 4.5-Gen Taki plant which has been converted (partially) to OLED production. Sharp aims to convert a total of 30,000 out of 90,000 monthly LCD substrates to 22,000 OLED substrates, this will probably take time and the company's current capacity is probably very limited.
