When Google officially launched the pixel 4a, many people may be surprised at how the company added OLED panels to this midrange beast and posted an affordable price of $349 for it? The answer is in some small details. A display analyst commented that it was the kind of OLED Google decided to use on its latest products that helped maintain such a low price.
The new report points out that Google uses hard OLED panels for pixel 4a, which greatly reduces the overall cost. According to the latest opinion of DSCC analyst Ross young, Google decided to use rigid OLED instead of flexible OLED panel on pixel 4a. What is the result? The production cost is greatly reduced, so that the price of each rigid OLED is one-third of that of similar flexible products. In addition, purchasing a large number of these OLED screens means that manufacturers or manufacturers are likely to give Google an attractive discount.
Young also said that Apple decided not to use a hard OLED panel but a flexible screen because it wanted to achieve a smaller lower border and purchase it from different display manufacturers. This may mean that Google has only excavated a single panel manufacturer, but it is not known yet. He also mentioned that the flexible OLED screen will be conducive to 5g ready smartphones, because a thinner shape means thinner chips, and more antennas can be added to improve reception quality.
Pixel 4A only supports 4G networks. The upcoming pixel phones supporting 5g networks may use flexible OLED screens, which means that their prices may be higher than Google’s latest midrange machines. In general, the pixel 4A hardware is very promising. Early comments praised the image quality of the camera and said that it is a great device for this price.
