Nokia makes OLED production mandatory for panel suppliers According to industry sources, Nokia has made OLED production one of the mandatory conditions for its selection of panel suppliers as it expects the technology to play a major role in the future of mobile phone handsets.
Although currently Nokia only uses OLED displays in three of its high end phones and in no other models, they see the technology as the future and need their panel suppliers to have development and production plans for OLED panels.

AU Optronics (AUO) and TPO Display, two current panel suppliers for Nokia also noted that they are beginning development of OLED displays. AUO had shut down its OLED line two years ago facing high production costs but costs have dropped and the chance of losing Nokia as a client will now have the manufacturer reopening the line.

Samsung SDI and Chi Mei EL Corporation (CMEL) are the current major suppliers of small-sized OLED panels with the highest volume of sales.
