According to reports, Samsung is seeing better-then-expected demand for the Galaxy S6 Edge - and SDC will not be able to produce enough flexible OLEDs. Earlier this month I speculated that SDC may try to start producing at its new 6.5-Gen A3 flexible OLED fab sooner then planned - and today Bloomberg reports that this is indeed the case.
According to Bloomberg, Samsung already started to produce flexible OLEDs at the A3 fab - which was expected to enter production in June.
Bloomberg says that Samsung Display expects the new fab to more than double its flexible OLED capacity from 2 million 5" displays a month to over 5 million. This is a bit surprising - according to my information SDC's current flexible OLEDs are made in a 5.5-Gen line with a capacity of only 8,000 substrates per month - which is about 1 million 5" panels at 100% yields.
