One of the most interesting technologies of this 2022 are the Samsung QD-OLED panels and that will give life to its first OLED television, in addition to the Sony A95K. And today we bring good news: the Korean manufacturer is managing to lower the cost of manufacturing.

Or this is what emerges from the latest report published by various Korean media in which they affirm that Samsung Display has managed to increase production performance by 75%.

To give you an idea,Samsung’s initial production was around 50%. This means that half of the QD-OLED panels it manufactured had to be scrapped. Samsung’s goal for this 2022 was to reach 70% at the beginning, and now that they have already reached 75%, the success is resounding.

In this way, The Korean manufacturer has announced in a statement to its workers that it has reached 75% performance in the manufacture of QD-OLED panels. The company praised the hard work of the employees who achieved a return of 75% and emphasized that they will soon achieve a return of more than 90%.

Samsung Display’s QD-OLED production capacity is 30,000 sheets per month of 8.5 generation (2200 x 2500 mm). To say that the 8.5 generation is big enough to be able to take out three 65-inch panels and two 55-inch panels. Therefore, the manufacturer is capable of producing 1.8 million panels a year.

Reaching 75% performance yield is enough to make 1.35 million televisions. This means that can supply a larger number of panels to its customers, Samsung Electronics and Sonywhile reducing losses.

Yes indeed, Although they have managed to reduce losses significantly, for the moment this will not be a turning point to expand the QD-OLED production lines. An industry official stated that “Since the market price of large-format OLEDs is low, it is difficult to guarantee profitability even with a rapid improvement in performance.”

It should be remembered that the 55-inch Samsung S95B will cost 2,199 euros, while the 65-inch model will have an official price of 2,999 euros. Figures lower than expected and that could go down even more thanks to this advance in the production chain.

Even so, the price of their QD-OLED televisions are very tight, to the point that several industry sources point out that Samsung Electronics has set product prices lower than expected to maintain the superior premium line Neo QLED as a great exponent of the brand.

Now, with this improvement in the manufacturing process, Samsung could launch its second generation of QD-OLED Smart TV in 2023 at an even more affordable pricepositioning this technology as the best alternative to LG WOLED panels.

Samsung Electronics Vice President Lee Jae-yong announced in October 2019 that would invest a total of 13.1 trillion won by 2025 to develop QD displays. Samsung Display invested around 3 trillion won in QD screen investment in 2021. And it seems to be paying off.

Now, we will have to wait to see if Samsung Display decides to invest more money in its QD-OLED production lines to increase performance or wait until next year.
