Today 5.5.2014 the Asian Nikke reports that Samsung Electronics will not ramp up theV2 8G (2200×2500) OLED-Television production line deterred by the inefficiency of production and because of the price pressure in the HDTV market.

Samsung GALAXY Tab S 2560×1600 AMOLED Display – Tablet Pcs 8.4 inch and 10.5 inch WQXGA AMOLED DIsplay
It looks like Samsung is ready to launch their new Galaxy Tab S Tablet-Pc series. The completely new Tablet Pc line up will be called Galaxy TAB S ! The new Galaxy Tab S series will be introduced with two different display sizes a 8.4 inch and a 10.5 inch size. But a really surprise for us is that the new panels features a WQXGA AMOLED Display (2560×1600, 320ppi). The question is can Samsung Display deliver so much large AMOLED Display in that kind of resolution for the whole market? Maybe Samsung start with the Tab S series only in Korea because of the demand of displays. Samsung unveiled also the first Tablet Pc with a Super-Amoled Display with a 7.7 inch size for a few years. If Samsung Display use also the same organic materials and Diamond Pixel Matrix like the Galaxy S5 this is definitive the best Tablet Pc on market. As a example from the test lab results from the S5 OLED: The result of the brightness are really amazing, the S5 are more than 22 percent brighter than the Galaxy S4 OLED and 13 percent more than the Galaxy Note 3.
China’s Changhong launched their first OLED TV, the 55Q1A . This TV uses LG Display’s curved 55″ panel. It’s not clear from the info I saw, but it may feature 4K resolution (although it’s seems rather unlikely). In any case, the TV is now shipping in China for 48,888 yuan (about $7,800). Changhong is now China’s second OLED TV maker. Just last month Skyworth launched their own 55″ curved OLED TV, the TianChi E980 . Skyworth also uses OLED panels supplied by LG Display. It’s interesting to see LG Display strategy of supplying OLED panels to other companies beside LG Electronics. Read more about Changhong launches its first OLED TV using LGD panels

It may be that Apple is considering to build a Google Glass competitor and that’s why they want to develop their own microdisplay. Read more about Apple acquires LuxVue, a micro-LED display developer

Japan Display ‘s OLED R&D manager Masahiko Suzuki discussed the company’s AMOLED program during a conference in Japan. Masahiko explains (see slide below) that for the medium-term, the small/medium display maker is focused on high-res LCD panels (over 500 PPI), but for the long term the main focus will be on OLED displays. JDI sees OLED as a way to create a new market for flexible, transparent and roll-to-roll printed displays. JDI is set to develop flexible OLEDs and later on high-resolution OLEDs. JDI is using LG’s WRGB technology which enables them to achieve a high resolution and a lower power consumption on mainly-white images (such as a web browser). But currently JDI sees OLEDs as still too expensive, and there are still issues with lifetime and uniformity. Read more about Japan Display sees OLED as their long-term display technology of choice
