Reuters reports that Samsung Group plans to increase 2012 investment to a record $41.4 billion. The investment will go into hiring new employees (the plan is to add 26,000 in 2012), building new factories, acquisitions and R&D.
Samsung is expected to invest around 7 trillion Won ($6.1 billion) in OLED displays in 2012. This number is actually the same one reported by Reuters back in November - even though total 2012 investment was expected to be around $30 billion back then. In 2011 OLED investment reached 5 trillion Won ($4.3 billion).
