QD Oled Samsung Display 49'' and 77'' TV panels in 2023

According to a report by the firm Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC) mentioned in the columns of our Korean colleague ChosunBiz, the screen manufacturer Samsung Display will start producing 49'' QD OLED TV panels next year (124 cm) and 77'' (196 cm).

Currently available in 55'' (140 cm) and 65'' (165 cm) from Samsung with the S95B series (see our news (Update) Samsung S95B, Oled Ultra HD 4K 55'' and 65'' TV in approaching) and Sony with the A95K series (see our CES 22 news > Sony A95K Master Serie: QD Oled Ultra HD 4K 55'' and 65'' TV, Depth Control, Netflix Adaptive Calibrated Mode, etc.), the range of QD TVs Oled should be enriched next year with two new diagonals, 49'' and 77 inches.

The word to the firm Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC)

Even if no details have been given as to the resolution of these new Oled TV panels, the Ultra HD 4K definition should be in order. “Samsung Display plans to add 49” and 77” products next year to bolster its QD OLED portfolio,” said market research firm DSCC. The latter also specifies that the Multi-Model Glass (MMG) cutting process of 8.5G mother panels will be used by Samsung Display to obtain different sizes of QD OLED panels from a single mother panel.

QD Oled TV panels, production capacity of 1.8 million units 55''/65'' per year

As a reminder, Samsung Display's current monthly production capacity is 30,000 mother panels which, once cut, are converted into approximately 1.8 million QD OLED panels per year, of which 1.3/1.4 million are diagonals 55'' and 65'' for televisions, the rest for computer monitors. This figure is understood with a yield of 100%, which means that all the panels produced can be sold. This is not yet the case, Samsung Display having recently communicated on a yield of 75% (see our news QD OLED Samsung Display panels, yield of 75%). The manufacturer is targeting a return of 80% this quarter and 90% in the second half. Last precision on the yield always, our colleagues from ChosunBiz indicate that the company Samsung Display is known to preserve its production yields with or without MMG process. The setbacks (and delays) observed at LG Display in its Guangzhou factory during its debut until 2020 (see our news LG Display Guangzhou Oled TV factory: explanations of chaotic (still postponed) production) should therefore not be appropriate.
