But all these manufacturers have been doing it for years. It’s the same case with the Smartphone industry. Some components have to be outsourced to meet the demand since it’s impossible to fulfil the yield in-house.
And Samsung sources panels from other top-notch manufacturers like BOE, Sharp, and and and LG that also provide panels to the likes of Sony. And this affects all their global units and not limited to regions just as you’ve pointed out.
To some extent it’s not cool as you say because Samsung is now reserving their panels (and yield capacity) to companies that are willing to pay top dollar. Like the likes of Apple, Microsoft, Lenovo etc.
Because consumer protection is weak in African countries.
