Samsung plans a Gen-8 pilot production line for OLED TVs?

Samsung plans to build a Gen-8 pilot production line for OLED TVs, according to recent reports from Korea. They want to produce 55" OLED panels, and the pilot line will be able to produce 4,000 such panels monthly. Samsung will use the same building as used in their upcoming 5.5-Gen production plant.

In September, Yoon Boo-keun, the head of Samsung's TV business unit said that "It's
too premature to commercialize OLED TVs
due to strong price resistance, while Brian Berkeley, Samsung's OLED R&D VP said that OLED
TVs are "coming soon". We'll have to wait and see what Samsung plans for us...
