SHENZHEN -- China's display makers are ramping up production capacity of flexible OLED smartphone screens this year to challenge the South Korean display makers currently dominating Apple and Huawei supply chains.

State-backed BOE Technology Group has already been chosen over Samsung Display to provide flexible organic light-emitting diode displays for the Mate X, Huawei's first foldable phone, though industry watchers caution that the quality of up-and-coming Chinese display makers remains an open question.
