Samsung will reportedly return to OLED TV market

30 Mar 2015 | Rasmus Larsen |

After launching an OLED TV in 2013 and pulling it again the year after, Samsung is planning to return to the OLED TV market by switching to the same OLED panel technology that LG is using, according to Korean ETNews.

But no words on when

LG is still the only OLED TV maker and is currently expanding its line-up with 4K OLED TVs, but Samsung could return to the market and take on its Korean competitor after it put its OLED production on hold in 2014.

According to sources in Korea, Samsung wants to switch OLED panel technology to the WRGB type, which is the same technology that LG is using. The only problem is that the relevant patents for this technology, originally developed by Kodak, are now owned by LG Display. The two companies have already been engaged in a legal battle, but if Samsung decides to go ahead, things could heat up.

No timeline has been set and Samsung has not confirmed the information, but the company previously announced that it is investing billions of dollars in a new OLED plant for mobile displays. The new report claims to know that Samsung will use the same factory to produce some of the OLED TVs in addition to its dedicated OLED TV plant that was set up in 2013.

Sony and Panasonic are also rumored to launch OLED TVs in the near future.
