According to Korean media, in order to speed up the construction process of the OLED module factories in India, Samsung Display sent about 100 engineers to India for support, and these engineers were on a chartered flight to the Indian factories on November 6.
According to the report, Samsung Display is building factories in Noida, Uttar Pradesh and North India for the production of medium-sized OLED panels, and the engineers sent to the Indian factories include officials from the partner companies, who will be tested for COVID-19 nucleic acid and self-isolated before the construction begins.
Since the beginning of 2020, Samsung Display has built OLED module factories to supply components for Samsung’s smartphone factories in Noida (to be completed in 2018). The OLED modules are expected to begin production in the first half of 2021, and the engineers assigned to the India plants will accelerate the project’s completion.
Samsung has planned to end its LCD production since this year, focusing on the development of new display technologies such as OLED. The spokesman of Samsung said in early March that it will totally end LCD panel production in South Korea and China by the end of this year, aiming to speed up the rollout of quantum dot OLED panels and continue to increase research and development efforts.
At the same time, with the rise of new display industry, Samsung also focuses on Mini LED, Micro LED and QLED applications, and has achieved certain success in each field.
Among them, Micro LED TVs have been developed in many cities around the world; Mini LED backlight TVs will be available in 2021; for QLED, Samsung just announced in late October that it has developed the leading Blue QLED technology, which increases luminous efficiency by 20%, with maximum brightness of 88,900 nits and a screen lifespan of 16,000 hours.
