Samsung to increase its QD-OLED production capacity by year's end, will introduce 77-inch and 49-inch panels

Samsung Display says that it managed to increase its QD-OLED production yields to around 85% (up from 75% in April). The company plans to introduce new technologies and processes that will enable it to increase its production capacity from 30,000 monthly substrates to almost 40,000 at the same production line.

Samsung Display will so increase its QD-OLED production capacity by 30%. The main step to achieve this is the reduction of TAKT time (the time it takes to produce one panel).

Samsung also announced that it plans to start producing 77-inch and 49-inch QD-OLED panels in 2023. This is in addition to the current 34-inch, 55-inch and 65-inch panels. SDC recently demonstrated a prototype 77-inch QD-OLED panel:

The company hasn't yet committed to expanding its production capacity by building a new production line, though.

What "BP" stands for? If its back plane, than conventional OLED is bottom emitting type (true) and QD-OLED is top emission type. Is it confirmed? But backplane is powering OLED and they need to be in direct contact. In case of conventional OLED, backplane and color filter are in wrong order. Clarification welcome!
