Recent OLED news:

LG OLED TV sales are lower than expected

A report from Korea says that LG Electronics' OLED TV sales are lower then expected. While the sales are increasing, the company expected them to grow faster, and as a result inventories are increasing. LGD does not want to decrease its output (currently they aim to produce 600,000 panels in 2015) as this will cause panel prices to increase.

This report conflicts with an earlier report that said that LGD cannot meet the current demand for OLED TVs.

Researchers from Taiwan urge consumers and governments to watch out from white LED lighting

Taiwan's National Tsing-Hua University is continuing its fight against the hazards of LEDs and white light - a research team from NTHU published a call to the public to think carefully about television, computer, phone, tablet and other LED-based display usage as the white light produced by LEDs can be hazardous.

The researchers say that people should consider new candle-light style lighting sources for reading, residence and street light. They also urge governments and legislators to enact new rules that will force light-based products to show the light spectrum emitted by the product.

BOE aims to start mass producing OLED displays in H2 2015

According to reports, BOE Display is starting to order OLED production equipment for its 5.5-Gen LTPS OLED fab in Ordos. BOE aims to to start small-sized OLED production in the second half of 2015. The fab's capacity is 55,000 substrates each month, but these are used for both LCD and OLED production - and OLED capacity will probably be limited at first.

BOE is also planning to build a Gen-8.5 OLED fab in Hefei Xinzhan, which will be used to produce large-area OLED TV panels. The company already established a pilot line in Hefei, which was used to produce 55" 4K OLED TV samples in 2014.

Apple's Watch production estimated at 2-3 million units a month

An Apple analyst estimates that Apple Watch pre-orders will exceed 2.3 million units, as less than 10% of iPhone owners will buy Apple's new smartwatch. The analyst says that Apple's production capacity will reach 2-3 million units per month. The main bottlenecks are the haptic vibrator and LGD's flexible plastic-based AMOLED display. Apple will ship between 15-20 million Watches in 2015 (down below Street consensus of 20-30 devices).

Apple is set to start shipping the Watch wearable device soon (on April 24th)- with its flexible plastic-based AMOLED display produced by LG Display. Earlier reports from China claimed that Apple has cut the expected monthly production rate by 50%.

A report from Korea claims that Apple contracted JOLED to produce 9.7" AMOLEDs for next-gen iPad tablets

Apple LogoJOLED logoJOLED (Japan OLED) was launched in August 2014 by Japan Display, Sony and Panasonic with an aim to become an OLED medium display producer - focusing at first on OLEDs for tables, laptops and signage). A report from Korea's ETNews claims that Apple has contracted JOLED to produce OLED displays for next-gen iPad tablets.

Earlier estimates said that JOLED will begin pilot production in the second half of 2017 and mass production in the second half of 2017, which seems more reasonable then the current ETNews estimates which are quite aggressive - mass production for Apple by the end of 2016.
