Samsung Display recently started producing QD-OLED panels (for TV and monitor applications), and according to earlier reports, the production suffered from low yields, estimated at around 30-50% a few months ago.
In a move that is thought to reassure SDC's employees, the company announced on its internal bulletin board that it has managed to increase its QD-OLED production yields to 75%, and it now aims to increase that to 90% or higher.
According to the report, SDC's employees are not optimistic regarding its QD-OLED competitiveness with LG's WOLED and RGB OLED structures - and not just because of the low production yields. Initial reviews of the QD-OLED panels say that the contrast is not as high as other OLED displays with ambient lighting, and there are color issues due to the unique pixel arrangement.
It is estimated that even with increase production yields, SDC will refrain from further QD-OLED investments until it will see market reaction.
