In recent years OLED technology has emerged as the leading smartphone display technology, and the world's most popular phone vendors are all shipping AMOLED smartphones.
In 2018, over 500 million AMOLED screens were produced - mostly to satisfy demand from mobile phones vendors. The smartphone OLED 2018 market was led by Samsung, who has been using AMOLEDs in its high-end phones for many years, followed by Apple, LG, Xiaomi, Huawei and others. Samsung is branding its smartphone OLED displays as Super AMOLED display.
Most display experts and consumers agree that OLED displays are the world's best smartphone displays. The best smartphone OLED displays are the Super AMOLED displays produced by Samsung Display, but other OLED producers (such as LG and BOE Display) are also producing high quality OLEDs.
Following is a list of smartphone with OLED displays:
Samsung's Galaxy Note 10 is the company's 2019 flagship phablet device, featuring a 6.3" 2280x1080, 401 PPI, Dynamic Infinity-O AMOLED display (6.8" 3040x1440, 498 PPI, on the Note 10+) with an under-the-display fingerprint sensor, a Snapdragon 855 processor, 8GB (10GB on the Note 10+) of RAM, 256GB of storage and a triple-camera setup. The Note 10+ has a 5G model.
For the Note 10 and 10+, Samsung upgraded the S Pen with a new design and capabilities and worked with Microsoft to enable Windows Live mirroring support for the Note 10.
Huawei's P30 smartphone features a 6.1" 1080x2340 AMOLED display (6.47" 1080x2340 on the P30 Pro), a Kirin 980 chipset, 6/8 GB of RAM and 64/128/256 GB of storage (the P30 Pro has a 512GB variant) in addition to a Nano Memory card slot. The P30 also features a triple camera setup (quad-camera on the P30 Pro) and an under-the-display fingerprint sensor.
The S10 phones use Samsung's latest AMOLEDs, that are now HDR10+ certified, include an under-the-OLED fingerprint sensor (Qualcomm ultra-sonic) and cut-outs for the selfie cameras. Samsung calls these displays "Dynamic AMOLED" (due to the HDR support, probably) and "Infinity-O Display" due to the camera cut-outs.
Apple's 2018 iPhone XS sports a 5.8" 1125x2436 notch-type flexible AMOLED display (produced by Samsung Display), an Hexa-Core Apple A12 chipset, 4GB of RAM, 64/256/512 GB of storage and a 12MP camera. In addition to the iPhone XS, Apple also offers the larger iPhone XS Max with its 6.5" 1242x2688 flexible AMOLED.
The Vivo S5 smartphone uses a large 6.44" 1080x2400 Super AMOLED display, with a punch-hole selfie camera. The S5 also features an Octa-Core Snapdragon 712 chipset, 8 GB of RAM, 128 GB of storage, a microSD slot and a quad camera setup.
The Vivo S5 will start shipping in China by the end of November 2019 for around $385.
The Motorola Razr 2019 is a clamshell-style smartphone that features a 6.2" 2142x876 (21:9) foldable AMOLED display (likely produced by LGD as Motorola specifically calls this a pOLED display).
There is also a secondary display - a 2.7" 600x800 AMOLED (which Motorola calls a gOLED, which likely means it is produced by Samsung). Other features include a Snapdragon 710 octa-core chipset, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage and a 16MP Google-Lens camera.
Xiaomi's Mi Note 10 features a 6.47-inch 1080x2340 Super AMOLED HDR (600 nits) display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G chipset, 6 GB of RAM, 128 GB of storage and a quad-camera setup with a main 108MP sensor.
The Mi Note 10 costs around $600 and will ship soon in China.
Huawei's Mate Xs will be a foldable smartphone that will be an upgrade to the Mate X. It will likely sport the exact same form factor and display (8" 2200x2480 foldable AMOLED display that folds outwards, produced by BOE) but with a stronger chipset (Kiri 990 SoC) and maybe other improved features.
Huawei announced that the Mate Xs will ship in China in Q1 2020.
