Samsung pouring $3.6 billion in a new flexible OLED displays plant, can we say Edge?


Samsung is creating a brand new factory for small and medium-sized AMOLED displays (read smartphones and tablets), and is pouring no less than $3.6 billion to complete it. The plant will be operational within the next two years, and would eventually supply OLED panels for external clients, too. 

According to industry analysts, the new production lines will first start cranking flexible OLED sheets to satisfy demand for phones in the newly-coined Edge line of Samsung, which for now only includes the curved Note Edge, but all rumors indicate that a Galaxy S6 Edge is on the horizon, too.

Apple will never go for full amoled solution at least not until amoled screen production cost get cheaper than lcd's. They had to use an oled display in the watch because lcd is so freaking bad that not even apple would risk putting this outdated tech into their watch.

1GB of ram, low-resolution displays, 16GB of internal storage, build quality issues on ip6+... Apple make cheap phones disguised as absolute and only premium option available. The only premium thing is ios tbh.

I want them to move beyond OLED. QLED is the next advanced step. Offering better brightness output, lower power consumption, better colors and it's cheaper to manufacture due to the fabrication process, not to mention longer shelf life.
