According to a new report from Korea, LG Display is enjoying high demand for its 48-inch OLED TV panels, especially from gamers, and the company aims to expand its production of such panels.


LGD currently produces the panels at its new Guangzhou OLED TV fab, in which it uses one 8.5-Gen glass plate to produce two 77-inch panels and two 48-inch panels. It now plans to start making 48-inch displays in its Paju OLED TV fab, where it will cut one 8.5-Gen plate to 8 48-inch panels.

It is estimated that LGD will ship over one million 48-inch panels this year, up from 220,000 in 2020.

Interestingly, the high demand for 48-inch panels caused an unusual situation where sometimes 55-inch OLED TVs cost less than a 48-inch OLED TV of the same model - because TV makers are offering discounts for the 55-inch models but not the 48-inch ones.



42″ OLED TVs and 24-27″ OLED monitors

And we’re still waiting for 42″ OLED TVs and 24-27″ computer OLED monitors.

Hooray, it was about time

Great to see this happening. Finally I will be able to get decent pc monitor/TV combo that would fit on my desk for reasonable price (at least I hope the A1 model will be reasonably priced).

42 inches won't happen

42 inches won't happen anytime soon.

gen8.5 motherglass is not suited for 42 panels.

It basically results in the same amount of 42 inchers as 48'', eight.

42" OLED

The 42" could well be made the same way the 48" was.

Thus while we may get some kind of 42" OLED display, it will likely be priced similarly to a 48".

Thankfully if this happens it wont be as big a deal breaker as the 48" price issue currently is being significantly more expensive than it 'should' be based on size.

I'd very much like to see a 42" 120hz capable OLED, i was intending on getting the CX 48" during the xmas deals to replace my very aged 42" Plasma, but the CX being what it is, never went on sale while all other sizes did (even the 77"), so i never got it.

Will have to see how the C1 is priced and what news comes out on a 42" OLED display.

42″ panels already announced

LG already announced 42″ OLED panels earlier this year. So it’s now just a matter of when TVs based on those panels are going to hit the market.
