Since Samsung unveiled their 4.99″ Full-HD AMOLED panels at CES 2013 , we assumed that the Galaxy S4 will use those panels. Some supply-chain analysts from Korea confirmed this. But then, towards the end of February, SamMobile posted that the S4 will in fact not use an OLED at all, but rather a 4.99″ Full-HD SoLux LCD display . Today the same blog posted a new post saying that they received new information about the S4 – and indeed it will use a new kind of AMOLED display – one with green PHOLEDs (instead of the fluorescent green currently used by Samsung) – which will make it 25% more efficient. This isn’t really news – it was expected and we reported this back in early February . But it’s good to see this new post by SamMobile anyway.

New reports – the Galaxy S4 will use an AMOLED with green PHOLEDs
Rappler, a Philippines-based news site posted an interesting report from Samsung’s Southeast Asia Forum (which took place in Jakarta, Indonesia), claiming that Samsung’s F9500 55″ Real OLED TV will launch in Asia in August 2013, for the price of 750,000 Philippine Pesos – or just over $18,000! That’s a really high price even for an OLED TV, considering that LG’s 55″ OLED TV costs $10,000 in Korea . I find it hard to believe that Samsung will charge such a premium over LG’s TV ( DisplayMate actually says that the quality of LG’s OLED panel is superior ). Samsung is using direct-emission RGB OLED subpixels, which are more complicated to make compared to LG’s WRGB structure. Samsung’s TV also features MultiView 3D. A few weeks ago it was reported that Samsung is actually considering to adopt LG’s WRGB structure in order to increase production yields and lower the cost. LG and Samsung are in talks to end their OLED IP disputes and are indeed considering cross-licensing relevant patents . Source: Rappler Samsung Direct emission OLED TV Videos OLED display videos

We all know that LG Display managed to beat Samsung and be the first company to actually produce and ship OLED TV panels . Today the Korea Times claims that Samsung decided to adopt LG’s own WRGB architecture and the company will start producing such OLED TV panels towards the end of 2013. Samsung and LG have taken different paths towards large sized OLED panels. Samsung is using an LTPS backplane and a direct-emission (or side by side) architecture which means that there are three sub pixels for each pixel (red, green and blue). Samsung’s design does not use any color filters. LG’s OLED panels use an Oxide-TFT backplane and white sub pixels with color filters (this is called WRGB because there are four subpixels: red, green, blue and one white, non filtered. Is is also referred to sometimes as WOLED-CF). On paper Samsung’s design is superior as it’s more efficient (no filters) and enables smaller pixels.

Samsung and LG have agreed to resolve their OLED dispute outside of the court of law, and today Samsung dropped their injunction against LG . This is a good sign that the two companies will actually make peace on OLED technology – which will hopefully accelerate OLED development. Samsung and LG have been involved in a legal battle over OLED IP for almost a year now. DisplaySearch speculated earlier this week that the two Korean giants may eventually collaborate on OLED technology , mostly due to fear from Japanese competition.

Samsung drops their OLED injunction against LG
Last month Universal Display gave an update regarding their UniversalBarrier single-layer encapsulation technology. They said that the technology is being evaluation by Samsung, and that UDC has a working 6″ R&D deposition machine for the encapsulation layer. UDC said the technology is not ready for Samsung’s Gen-5.5 line yet. UDC posted a new job opening today for a Flexible OLED lighting researcher , to do some “advanced development of UDC’s thin film OLED encapsulation technology”. The candidate “may take part in technology transfer of the process technologies from UDC’s Pilot Line into a customer’s mass production environment. This may involve frequent international travel”. It seems that the company is indeed adapting its technology for Samsung’s flexible OLED line . Samsung launched their YOUM flexible OLED panels at CES, but the company didn’t reveal any actual launch date.

According to reports from Korea, Samsung Electronics will host a press conference on February 19 (a week after the new year celebrations are over) to finally launch its OLED TV in Korea. The same sources say that LG will start shipping its own OLED TV in Korea on February 20. LG’s 55EM9700 OLED TV will cost $10,000 and its likely that Samsung’s set will have the same price. Samsung’s F9500 (full model number: KN55F9500) is a 55″ Full-HD Real OLED T V . The OLED panel uses direct-emission RGB OLED subpixels, hence the “Real” title. The TV offers all sorts of smart features and active 3D (with MultiView). Source: Linxus LG Samsung OLED TV

Samsung set to launch their OLED TVs on February 19?
According to new rumors, Samsung is set to announce a new dual-AMOLED device at MWC (February 25). The “Samsung Galaxy Q” will feature two Full-HD Super AMOLED panels, a dual-core 1.7GHz Exynos 5250 CUP, 2GB of RAM, 8 megapixel rear-facing camera and Android 4.2.1. We don’t know much else. If this is actually true, it can be a device with two rigid panels (probably the 4.99″ ones we’ve seen at CES ?) or it could be using two flexible OLED panels in some cool configuration – maybe akin to the prototype unveiled at CES (see above). Samsung officially launched their YOUM flexible OLED displays last month , but I’m not sure if we can expect such a device so soon. We’ll know more on February 25.

According to reports, the Korean government will attempt to resolve Samsung’s and LG OLED technology dispute. Policymakers in Korea say that cannot afford this conflict to escalate because Japanese and Taiwanese display makers are advancing in their own OLED technologies – potentially harming Korea’s interests. The legal war between Samsung and LG Display continues: today Samsung Electronics filed a patent invalidation suit against LG Display, saying that seven of its OLED patents are invalid as they lack innovation. We do not know yet what patents are involved. Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 The latest news from that dispute came in November 2012 when Samsung filed a patent invalidation suit against seven of LGD’s OLED patents . Two months earlier, LG Display filed a patent-infringement lawsuit against Samsung Electronics over OLED technology , saying that Samsung infringed upon seven of its OLED patents which relate to the design of the OLED panel, the driver circuitry and device design. LG seeks damages – and also a permanent injunction against the sale of Samsung’s Galaxy S3 , Galaxy Note and the Galaxy Tab 7.7 in South Korea. Earlier in September Samsung Display filed a lawsuit against LG over OLED technology tech leak . Samsung claims that LG Display stole 18 confidential technologies relating to OLED displays, and also gave some of the information to a third party
