The report also said that flexible OLED smartphones will be available in the USD 300 (around PHP 15K) to USD 500 (around PHP 25K) price tier.

In 2019, Samsung remained the AMOLED leader with 45 percent of the market share. It is followed by Apple with 16 percent and OPPO with 11 percent. All leading brands have also launched their flagships in 2019 with AMOLED panels.

Samsung displays currently accounts for close to 90 percent of the OLED panel market. BOE, Tianma, and CSOT are transitioning fast to OLED. It might just take time for them to match Samsung's production.

The majority of the sub USD 200 smartphone brands will still continue to use LCD panels.

Counterpoint believed that the AMOLED growth will be upwards, but it will also depend on the production of the panel makers.
