You should not expect Samsung to launch cheaper OLED TVs equipped with LG Display's panels anytime soon as the latter has confirmed that negotiations have so far been unfruitful.

The confirmation came during LG Display's Q2 2022 earnings conference call on Wednesday this week, as reported by Korean media.

- "Our new client (Samsung Electronics) had sought to use our OLED panels," said Kim Sung-hyun, CFO at LG Display, according to Korea Bizwire. "While there had been some progress, the process has come to a halt at the moment."
