Samsung say they have achieved 90% AMOLED yield, working 24h a day

Samsung Mobile Display say that they have achieved 90% yield in their AMOLED plant (4th generation), and they are working 24 hours a day.

It's not clear from the translation, but it seems that current production volume is 3 million displays a month (previously we heard that they shipped 2 million displays in July). Samsung are also planning a new AMOLED plant.

Samsung's vice president (Kim) says that OLED TV (40"-50") panels will compete against LCD in 4 to 5 years. The lifetime of their new AMOLED is around 50,000 hours.
