Samsung to Invest $11 Billion into Quantum Dot Displays

By IQT News posted 16 Oct 2019

(AnandTech) Samsung Display will invest 13.1 trillion won ($11 billion) over the next five years to produce Quantum Dot (QD) displays, the company announced. Samsung will create a new line, dubbed Q1, that will be built at its existing display factory in Asan, located in South Korea’s South Chungcheong Province.
The plan includes building up two QD-OLED production lines in South Korea between now and 2025, with the first starting production in 2021. In addition, the company will invest in R&D of quantum dot-enhanced OLED technology, which promises to provide finer colors than today’s OLED displays and televisions.
The first step of Samsung’s QD-OLED plan will be converting its L8 fab in Tangjong, South Korea, from making LCD substrates to QD-OLED substrates. The plant is expected to produce 30 thousand QD-OLED substrates per month starting in Q1 2021. Longer term, Samsung will be converting all of its 8th Generation LCD production facilities to QD-OLED in a bid to increase the number of substrates produced monthly to 100 thousand
The QD-OLED technology promises to simplify (i.e. lower the cost of) production of OLED-based televisions and monitors, as well as enabling wider color gamuts, which is something expected from next-generation content.
