Samsung had sold more smartphones with liquid crystal display (LCD) panels than those sporting OLED panels last year, according to analyst firm Omdia.

The tech giant shipped 135.1 million units of OLED smartphones in 2021, which accounted for 49.7% of its total shipment, the firm said.

At the same time, Samsung moved 135.8 million units of LCD smartphones, which accounted for 50% of its total shipment, Omdia said.

The 2021 OLED smartphone shipment figure is a drop of 15% from 2020 while those for LCD smartphones increased by 41% over the same time period.

Samsung is likely intentionally focusing on shipping more LCD smartphones amid the global component shortage that is pressuring cost.

Average sales prices of both OLED and LCD smartphones dropped in 2021 compared to 2020, according to Omdia, with the exception of low-end LCD smartphones costing less than 180,000 Korean won.

This means selling more low-end LCD smartphones is more profitable for Samsung.
