LG Display to focus on larger OLED panels, to launch 30" TVs by 2012

LG Display's CEO, Kwon Young-soo, says that they will focus on OLED TV panels rather then smaller ones for mobile phones. Interestingly there are reports that LG are in talks with Nokia to supply smaller panels, so it's not clear which way LG are really headed.

LG Display plans to launch 30" OLED TVs in 2012. That's actually a delay - previously those TVs were planned for 2010. In a recent interview, LG claimed that they will launch 15" OLED TVs in Korea in December 2009.

Kwon Young-soo further said that LG plans to hire 1,700 employees for their R&D department, many of these will probably work on OLEDs.
