Talking with KoreanHelad the company CEO Lee Dong-hoon said, “company is working hard to launch QD-OLED panels in the near future.

Since last year, there have been rumors that the Samsung subsidiary will invest about 10 trillion won (approx. 8.3 billion US$) in QD-OLED in April, but the plan has not yet been implemented. To recall, QD-OLED term refers to a hybrid display, that uses both OLEDs and quantum dots. Further, the company is developing panels with blue OLED emitters and quantum dots that convert blue light into red and green light. If the QD-OLED panel is commercialized, Samsung Electronics may use this self-illuminating panel for television.

Moreover, the main reason behind Samsung Display’s latest reduction in LCD panel production is that the profitability of the LCD panel business is declining due to oversupply caused by Chinese competitors. However, this decision is seen as a preemptive move by the company from LCD to QD-OLED, which may help boost the OLED market.

Industry experts believe, “With the reduction in LCD panel production, Samsung will accelerate the commercialization of QD-OLED to maintain its leading position in the high-end display market.” All in all, the company plans to invest in OLED business because LCD panels have already been outdated.
