Samsung close to signing an official WOLED supply agreement with LG, first TVs to appear in July

Samsung Electronics has been in talks with LG Display over the supply of WOLED TV panels for a long time (we first reported on this in April 2021) but the agreement was delayed, with the two parties not agreeing on price and other issues.

A new report from Korea suggests that Samsung and LGD have finally reached an agreement over panel prices (Samsung will pay the same as LG Electronics), and it is estimated that an official agreement will be reached soon. Samsung plans to unveil its first WOLED TV in July 2022.

Samsung's original plan to ship 1.5 million WOLED TVs in 2022 has not changed. This is in addition to the 500,000 QD-OLED TVs it plans to ship even though it did not launch any such TV officially.
