As many companies are switching to OLED panels from the traditional LCD, at least for the flagship phones, Xiaomi has also decided to make the same move. According to reports, the company will adopt OLED displays in 2018 and the first phone with it will have a 6.01-inch panel.

The OLED display will be sourced from Samsung, although the first plan was to buy them from LG. Since the latter had problems with the plant operation, which was delayed, Xiaomi decided to go with Samsung.

The South Korean tech giant Samsung will start the first shipment in December, when it plans to ship 1 million units, followed by another 2.2 million units in the next month.
