Samsung has stopped making LCD Monitors

I just read this forgot which site that Samsung is not making LCD and instead are concentrating on OLED monitors. At first they will make 27" OLED which will cost a arm and leg. Now imagine a 43" monster which will eventually come out but cost 5 thousand dollars lol

Missed April fools by a few hours.

Or misread pandemic news as stopping production because lack of materials, people, or gov. ordered shutdown etc.

Dunno maybe where you are it's still 1st.

I'm looking it up right now.

Original source seems to be:
https://www.reuters.com/article/us-s...-idUSKBN21I0BY

with more info on later ones:
https://www.zdnet.com/article/samsun...cd-production/

But you may as well read this:
https://www.anandtech.com/show/15681...in-south-korea

This has been long time coming especially for TV market, the problem is when will they do that for monitor market or will we simply be forced to buy the smallest TVs they will make instead as is the case right now to get OLED.

Samsung will move to their QD-OLED.

Quote:
Samsung Display hopes that their sizable investment will pay off as the new technology promises unprecedented image quality and lower cost compared to regular OLED panels.
Yeah, no poo, even compared to LCDs OLED should be cheaper to make. The image quality and being fairly endgame product is why so many manufacturers stayed away from making OLEDs as it does make LCD obsolete quickly. At least for TVs it could be argued that some want crazy brightness which the LG OLED is not very good at.

And Samsung is not alone:

Quote:
LG Display has converted as least one of its LCD factories to an OLED facility, whereas Panasonic last year decided to cease LCD manufacturing by 2021.
Quote:
Samsung Display’s cross-town rival LG Display Co Ltd said earlier this year that it will halt domestic production of LCD TV panels by the end of 2020.

Panasonic: https://www.oled-info.com/panasonic-...roduction-2021

Quote:
Panasonic announced that it will stop all LCD panel production by 2021. Panasonic already stopped producing LCD TV panels in 2016, and current produces LCDs for automotive and industrial markets.
Panasonic says that even though its panels are highly regarded for their quality, the continuation of the business is enviable, as there is a "tougher environment" in the global market.

The company will continue to produce TVs, using third-party LCD and OLED displays.
Maybe they will not forget about the monitor sized panels lol, maybe. For TVs it's probably clear by now that LG's OLED is killing it and others really gotta move on to OLED finally.

You may want to link articles in OP next time

This is not the end of LCD anyway yet, many other will keep churning them out especially Chinese factories. Who knows maybe those dual layer LCDs will arrive more too.
Even if they start building now it will take a while to build the factory and get stuff going. Meanwhile LG will reign alone for a while still won't they as all OLED TVs so far use their panel or am I wrong there? Panasonic, Sony, it's all LG TV panel isn't it so far?
