According to a report by Korea Times, Samsung Mobile Display (SMD) is considering building a new OLED factory. Samsung wants to equip their production facility in Tangjeong, South Korea, with a 5.5 generation OLED production line. That means that Samsung will be able to efficiently produce 30-inch OLED TV panels.<br /><br /><h3>Larger OLED panels</h3>Samsung is currently considering expanding their OLED capacity significantly. The planned investment in more OLED production capacity will cost Samsung the equivalent of 866 million Euros. <br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href=" pictures/samsung40oled-1l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/samsung40oled-1.jpg" alt="Samsung 40” OLED" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>Samsung 40” OLED</i></p><br />With the new production line Samsung will be able to produce OLED substrates in 1320 x 1500 mm, which means that Samsung will be able to effectively produce 30-inch OLED screens (and larger).<br /><br />Samsung says that at the moment they are considering the OLED capacity expansion and wants to analyze the OLED market and examine the sales potential to end-user manufacturers such as Samsung, Sony and Sharp and to what extend these manufacturers plan to launch OLED-TVs.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/samsungflapping-1l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/samsungflapping-1.jpg" alt="Samsung 0,05 mm OLED" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>Samsung 0,05 mm OLED</i></p><br />Samsung is currently the world leader in the production of active matrix (AM) OLED panels.
