“LG Display says it plans to break rival Samsung Electronics’ hold on advanced displays in their stiff competition for supremacy in 3D televisions,” Kim Yoo-chul reports for The Korea Times.
“LG said it has no intention of follow Samsung into developing organic light-emitting diode (OLED) displays for smaller portable devices,” Kim reports. “Samsung is misleading the market because OLED displays are not suitable in terms of picture quality, response time, energy consumption and contrast ratios for smartphones and tablets,’ said Kwon Young-soo, chief executive of LG Display in a meeting with reporters, late Thursday.”
“Kwon said LG will put more focus on investing in OLED displays for large-sized TVs as it believes the technology could offer a better response time in these,” Kim reports. “‘LG Display may release a 55-inch OLED TV set sometime in the latter half of next year,’ he added.”
