The trend of big screen smartphones has been quite popular with brands like Apple and Samsung offering a "Plus" size variants of their annual flagships.
The report claims that this panel will nearly be 7-inches and that will be far greater than any other smartphone on the market today.
To help you visualize this display, it will be 0.9 inches larger than the display of the Huawei Mate10 Pro with a 6-inch display. This seems in line with an expected launch date of Q4 2018 for the Mate 20 series. As the current P20 series, specifically the P20 Pro featuring a 6.1-inch display, it is logical that the Mate series will see a bump in screen size, taking into account the trendy 18:9 screen ratio. The Bell report further states that Huawei's move to go for the big screen smartphone is to woo users in China. Chinese consumers prefer handsets with a large display so this makes sense for Huawei to target the Mate 20 at them. "Huawei said that it is protecting the garden with smartphones bigger than iPhone". The Samsung Galaxy Note 9, which often takes the crown for the largest screen, is expected to be a little smaller than 6.4 inches, while the possible Apple iPhone X Plus may stretch to nearly 6.5 inches. One thing that is sure is that a 6.9-inch display will definitely be too huge on a smartphone. Besides the 6.5-inch, Apple is expected to launch two more iPhones this year featuring a 6.1 inch LCD display. The South Korean manufacturer allegedly sent several samples to the Chinese company, including 6.9-inch OLED panels. A report by MacRumors has quoted Ming-Chi Kuo, a noted analyst, who has also revealed the price brackets of these devices.
