From Korea come new rumors about the release of Samsung's QD-OLED TVs, a technology that has been in development for some time as confirmed by numerous authoritative sources. The head Korea Herald (link in SOURCE) reported the forecasts of Omdia analysts, included in a report that takes stock of the situation.
Mass production could start in the third quarter of 2021. It would obviously be Samsung Display, the division that makes the panels (not just TV) for Samsung Electronics and other companies. Omdia claims that some prototypes useful for commercializing TVs have already been supplied to both Samsung Electronics and Sony. This indiscretion therefore seems to disprove the rumors that Samsung Display was determined to focus on QD-OLED technology while Samsung Electronics (which develops TVs) would have been more skeptical about this choice.
Samsung would also prefer to talk about Quantum Dot displays and not QD-OLEDs; this different terminology would allow us to differentiate ourselves from LG and from other brands operating in the OLED TV market, which Samsung would inevitably fall into.
The researchers' estimates speak of a production capacity of 30,000 panels per month on the Gen 8.5 line converted from LCD to QD-OLED. The cuts envisaged by Omdia include 55 ", 65", 78 "and 82". The first QD-OLED TVs could arrive on the market no earlier than the end of 2021, obviously if what is reported is correct. A head of Samsung Display would have confirmed the intention to launch the panels in the course of 2021, specifying that at the moment a precise date has not been set.
