As previously reported, the company is also working on a new even thinner QD-OLED panel that possibly could be earmarked for flexible or even rollable display panels in the future, The Elec said.

The report said yield rates at SD’s QD-OLED fab have reached 85% and should allow for a further 30% panel production increase before the year is out. With increased production and supply, panel prices are likely to become less expensive.

The Elec said Samsung Display’s QD-OLED fab can churn out 30,000 8.5 Gen substrates per month. The QD-OLED mother glass format is currently supporting 34-inch (monitor) and 55- and 65-inch (TV) panel screen sizes. The upcoming expansion will allow for a capacity increase of 40,000 substrates per month, which would likely allow for a reported addition of 77-inch (TV) and 49-inch (monitor) screen sizes.
