Samsung Display announced that it has managed to increase its QD-OLED production yields to 75%. Previously it was estimated that its yields are around 30-50%.
According to the report, SDC's employees are not optimistic regarding its QD-OLED competitiveness with LG's WOLED and RGB OLED structures - and not just because of the low production yields. Initial reviews of the QD-OLED panels say that the contrast is now as high as other OLED displays with ambient lighting, and there are color issues due to the unique pixel arrangement. It is estimated that even with increase production yields, SDC will refrain from further QD-OLED investments until it will see market reaction.
