Panasonic will reportedly invest 20-30 billion Yen in a new 6. generation OLED production line designed for manufacturing of OLED-TV panels. The OLED production line will be located inside Panasonic’s Himeji LCD plant.

Panasonic has not made any final decisions regarding the specific OLED production plans yet, but OLED-Info.com mentions that the final plans could include a partner.

Samsung and LG will launch their OLED-TVs later this year. In a related note, we can also mention that Sony is reportedly in talks with Samsung about buying OLED-TV panels for Sony’s future TVs. Sony has also shown interest in working with LG, according to sources. Last year it was reported that Panasonic was looking into a 8.5G OLED production line.
