It’s being reported today that Samsung Display is planning to build a new plant to produced its first Gen 8.5 OLED Line designed for larger displays for tablets and notebooks. Samsung is ordering the new equipment next year for 2024 production.


According to The Elec, “The Gen 8.5 OLED line is aimed at Apple, which is planning to adopt OLED panels for its tablets and PC lineups.


If Cupertino decides to more widely adopt them going forward, Samsung Display will likely invest to add another 15,000 substrates per month in capacity.


The new Gen 8.5 line will likely start production in 2024. Apple’s first OLED tablets, which will come in 11-inch and 12.9-inch sizes, will utilize Samsung Display and LG Display’s existing Gen 6 lines.” This could translate to some Apple devices beginning to use OLED panels prior to 2024. 


Samsung won’t be exclusive as it’s been reported that BOE is also planning to start Gen 8 OLED panel production in 2024. In addition, LG has been working with Apple for OLED panels for iPads, MacBooks in the 10-20” sizes and “Computer Monitors” (that could include panels for iMac) in the 30” range in the 2024-2024 timeline. A second report on LG’s plans could be reviewed here.
