There are reports that Coasia Microelectronics (a Samsung component distributor) is expected to get new AMOLED panel orders from several Chinese handset makers. Coasia is currently in talks with Xiaomi, Oppo, Gionee and two other companies. Shipments to the Chinese vendors are expected to start later in 2012, and the deals are estimated at several hundreds of millions of US dollars.

Oppo already has an AMOLED phone, the Finder. It's the world's slimmest smartphone at 6.64mm and it features a 4.3" Super AMOLED Plus display. Pre-orders are now available for ¥3,999 (about $630).
