We heard several reports from Korea that Samsung is set to unveil AMOLED tablets at CES . Samsung indeed release several new tablets at CES, but all of them use LCD displays. The main new family of tablets is the Galaxy Tab Pro, which comes in 12.2″, 10.1″ and 8.4″ sizes – and all use 2560×1600 LCDs. So far Samsung is disappointing us at CES – there’s no new OLED products on display. Hopefully previous reports that the company is shifting its focus back to LCD to lower costs aren’t true. We still know that SDC regards OLEDs as the future display for premium devices . Perhaps they are indeed shifting their OLED focus to flexible displays .

Taiwan’s Digitimes reports that local equipment suppliers are seeing increased orders from Samsung and LG for components used in smartphones with flexible displays . These orders are “mostly” for Samsung’s Galaxy Round and LG’s G Flex (which hints that perhaps there are new phones with flexible displays on the way). The Taiwanese suppliers say that most phone vendors are focusing on low-priced units, but Samsung is actually looking to further its presence in the high-end market.

According to Business Korea, Samsung Electronics is going to focus on mid-market LCD handsets in 2014, and in an effort to bring costs down they will adopt LCD panels in more phones. Samsung Display will reduce AMOLED production and increase LCD panel production. SDC was also asked to reduce OLED prices by “at least 10%”. The article says that the high-end smartphone market is saturated and Samsung wants to focus on emerging markets such as India and China. This can be a disturbing report for the OLED industry, but it doesn’t have to be so. Samsung made it clear several times that it sees OLED as the future display technology, and it plans to adopt OLEDs in its high-end devices. It is putting a special emphasis on flexible displays – and in fact it sees flexible OLEDs adopted by 40% of their mobile phones by 2018 .

Korean news site ETNews reports that Samsung plans to release two main models of its upcoming Galaxy S5 flagship phone – a standard plastic-bodied flat phone and a premium one that will sport a flexible OLED and a metal case. It’ll be interested to see whether Samsung simply curved the premium S5 (like the Galaxy Round ) or adopt a more radical design ( wrap-around display or even a foldable one, although frankly these are only expected in 2015 ). YOUM prototype phone, CES 2013 ETNews reports that initial production will begin in January 2014, and mass production will begin in February. This was also the case with the Galaxy S4 (which was announced on March 15 2013 ). It’s unlikely that Samsung will have enough flexible OLED capacity to supply such a flagship phone so it makes sense they will only adopt it in a premium model. This is exactly what Samsung did with the flat Galaxy Note 3 and the curved Galaxy Round . Read more about Will Samsung offer a premium Galaxy S5 with a flexible AMOLED?
