Apple's future iPhones might be the reason for Samsung's rumored OLED super factory
by Peter Kostadinov / Jun 29, 2017, 8:29 AM
According to insightful industry insiders, Samsung might be poised to build another OLED factory that will essentially reaffirm it as the global leader in OLED display manufacturing. The factory will be built in South Korea in two stages. The first stage of the construction expected to last anywhere between six months to a year and will kick off OLED display panels production sometime in 2019. The second stage of the construction will further expand the new factory and will finish by 2021. The investment is said to cost Samsung some 16.3 trillin Korean Won.
The new factory is expected to be called A5 and to churn out as much as 30% more yield than Samsung Display's existing A3 plant located in mainland China. The latter has been expanded since 2015 so as to maximize its production due to Apple's expected future demand for OLED panels, but it would seem that this won't be enough to meet it all. And rightly so, as Apple is rumored to have signed a deal for 180 million OLED display panels with Samsung for its 2018 iPhones.

PA, explain to me why the OnePlus 5 and the HTC U11 got a rating of 8.2? They're both good phones and they deserved atleast 9. And why do iphones get 9+ always even when they bring about minimal changes and closed ecosystem. Now, you can't argue that the iPhone is the fastest phone around,sure it is fast but Android phones like OnePlus 5 ,XZ Premium, U11 beat it as speed tests suggest. . A reply would be much appreciated!

Well like the article heading is misleading. Especially when Samsung can currently produce 300 million OLED panels, and that is with out Apple wanting display panels. Besides today Samsung currently supplies multiple OEMs, like Huawei, ZTE, Oppo, HTC, and many others. Not to mention all the models that Samsung produces that have OLED panels, like their Galaxy lineup, Ax, Jx, and others. Doing a Google search would have shown everyone how many panels Samsung can currently produce.

When did the comments ever make the headlines and reviews on this site? Also, what do you mean by the comment section is "proandroid"? So far, I see just as many immature trolls from either side of the fence, depending on the article.

I havent owned 1 samsung device that has gotten burn in. Dont worry im sure when Iphone 8 is out there be videos of an iphone with burn in. Its funny how AMOLED was useless tech and LCD was better yet now when Huawei, Apple, One Plus all use Samsung displays it has somehow improved??

People said these things a few years ago. Stop acting like a little child. In the last 1-2 years most people agree on that AMOLED displays advanced far enough to be better than LCD. I literally can't even remember when I last saw that someone said that the screens burn in. I only see it from people like you who cry about Apple.
