Display Central posted an interesting article (update: it is no longer available, sadly) discussing Samsung's Gen-8 AMOLED fab plans. They say that the company is still on track with their original plan - to start with LTPS production and later on switch to Oxide-TFT (IGZO). Samsung seems to think that IGZO is not ready yet for OLED mass production.

The article quotes Barry Young from the OLED Association saying that Samsung has managed to scale up LTPS for their Gen-8 pilot line and have now ordered high-volume Gen-8 production tool from APS.
