Xiaomi’s more price-aggressive brand, Redmi, has a new phone out simply called the Redmi Pro. It starts at the equivalent of about $225, but it also has a full HD OLED screen — something rare at this price point.
Samsung, which produced the Xiaomi Mi 5’s OLED panels, did not produce the Redmi Pro’s screens, though. Not even LG got the job. Instead, Xiaomi Today is reporting that two Chinese firms, EverDisplay and BOE, made the grade. It’s not known how the order split down.
The two companies are heading off Samsung’s reported 95 percent share of the OLED market with more orders from domestic brands these days as they’re considered cost-friendly and of good quality.
The question from here: how low can they go?
