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 premium phones today adopt flexible OLED displays. Apple for example is using a flexible 5.8" 1125x2436 OLED (made by SDC) in its 2018 iPhone XS (the iPhone XS Max sports a larger 6.5" 1242x2688 flexible AMOLED). Display experts say that the iPhone XS Display is the world's best smartphone display.

OLEDs - the best smartphone displays?

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.
