Samsung looking to break its R&D spending record next year, mobile chips and OLED displays in focus

The bulk of these investments is destined for the company's "system LSI business", which is mobile processors and OLED displays, which sounds like music to our ears. 15 trillion won will be invested in silicon next year, and 8 trillion of those will go towards mobile chips.
The LCD business investment is receiving a 2 trillion axe, which is essentially halving it, but OLED display development will get 7 trillion won more next year.
Hopefully that will result in the Super AMOLED HD+ of our dreams arriving sooner than Q2 2012. The bulk of this increased OLED investment will probably go towards TV screens, but we hope some of it will trickle down to the mobile business, seeing that it was breaking the charts last quarter, while TVs stagnated.

More cool stuff for the lower end of the android OEMs to copycat and make knockoffs from. The is the problem for the innovators -- they spend so much in R&D only to have the competitors make a copy at a fraction of the RD spend, respectively, The more Samsung spends, the more they lose to copycat android OEMs.
