Samsung reportedly inks deal to buy OLED TV panels from rival LG Display
 

 
More evidence of its shift away from LCD

Samsung Electronics is close to ordering millions of OLED TV panels from LG Display, according to new reports from MTN, ETNews, and Seoul Economic Daily. Officials reportedly met recently to agree to the deal, which would see 1 million panels supplied to Samsung in the second half of this year, rising to 4 million panels next year. If the deal is finalized, it would be the first time Samsung has bought OLED panels from its South Korean rival and market leader. TVs with LG’s OLED panels consistently rate amongst the best in professional reviews.

Samsung exited the OLED TV market over half a decade ago. Today, LG Display supplies OLED panels to a variety of TV manufacturers including Sony, Vizio, and Hisense, as well as LG Electronics. Last year LG Display announced an expansion of its OLED production lines, and market research firm TrendForce says its production capacity is due to further increase in the second quarter of this year. MTN reports that LG Display’s total OLED TV panel production capacity is around 8 million units this year.

Today’s reports are the latest indication of Samsung’s shift away from LCD panels, which it currently uses across its television lineup. Even its QLED TVs still use LCD panels behind that quantum dot layer. Last year Samsung Display announced it would stop producing LCD panels in the face of stiff price competition from Chinese competitors, however it reportedly postponed this shutdown after the pandemic led to a rise in demand.

While falling LCD panel prices were believed to be behind last year’s move, MTN reports that the trend is reversing this year. LCD panels are reportedly growing more expensive, prompting Samsung to explore alternatives.

While Samsung Electronics plans to buy panels from LG Display, its own display division is believed to be working on Quantum Dot OLED (QD-OLED) TV panels. A report from South Korean publication The Elec this week says Samsung Display is currently working on a prototype TV using the technology, which will be sent to potential customers like Samsung Electronics after it’s produced in June. However, QD-OLED panel samples sent to Samsung Electronics in January was reportedly criticized for their low brightness.

QD-OLED isn’t the only new display technology on Samsung’s horizon. It recently commercialized a new display type called Micro LED, which uses an array of tiny self-emissive LEDs to produce an image. Although Samsung has released the technology in a series of ultra-high end TVs, it’s believed to be years away from being affordable enough for mass-market sets. There are also reports that the company is working on self-emissive quantum-dot TVs.

When asked about the potential deal in an interview, Samsung Electronics Jong-Hee Han, who oversees the company’s display division, dismissed the reports as rumors.

They feeling that pressure from Sony with their OLEDS coming lol. Sony amd LG the TV kings to me, I see a lot of low end Samsung’s go out daily though their market share is crazy. They all over the place but if you want a real quality TV Sony or LG is the way to go in my humble opinion

LED isn't LCD.
They are still doing QLED and microLED is still being researched, but until then its OLED has gotten so cheap that there might be a market for OLED with Samsung algorithms for them to sell them at high enough markup that they generate a nice profit

Currently have a 2019 QLED, but I'd like to switch to OLED for the awesome black levels and contrast. The problem: they're still not bright enough and none of these companies have solved the burn-in issue. Plus, Samsung is my preferred make, though their software on their smart TVs is pretty garbage.

LG just "updated" their TV software in 2021 but everyone says its a step backwards and is extremely cluttered.

LG C1 & Sony A90J took a step forward in brightness for 2021(Sony is over 1000 Nits)

No they're not. Samsung outsells Sony easily. The reason they may switch from LCD panels to OLED panels is the rising cost from LCD suppliers in China. Either way, OLED would be a stopgap until they can get MicroLED sets to a reasonable price.

Burn-in isn't an issue with OLED neither is the degredation of the screens over time. Its just inherent to the technology.

I'd say the brigher you push OLED, the more they will have to do to prevent burn in, just like with CRTs.

Its pick your poison, until microLED tech matures.

You either want brightness and settle for lesser blacks or you want deep blacks and settle for lesser brightness.

In the market right now for a new tv. I'm going smart, so I may just go w/Sony. I use all Google platforms anyway, so the integration is simpler. But those LG's are dope as sh*t. I'm still not willing to drop $2k on a tv tho. Everytime I fill my cart on Best Buy I sit there like
