Information learned by The Elec indicates that Samsung will decide next month whether or not to invest in the production of OLED Gen 8.5, which will expand its existing capacity to manufacture OLED panels for various computing devices such as tablets and PCs. .

Samsung is also reportedly producing OLED panels alongside LG for new versions of the iPad Pro lineup, which will include an 11-inch version and 12.9-inch versions. Since Apple is bringing advanced display technology to its more expensive offerings, much like the introduction of mini-LEDs on the iPad Pro and MacBook Pro models, OLED technology will likely arrive first. for the iPad Pro range, then for the less expensive products.

Previously, Samsung and Apple reportedly had a falling out over OLED production for the iPad, as the latter wanted a dual-battery tandem panel that would help double the panel’s brightness while quadrupling its lifespan, at the expense of cost. . Samsung then agreed to mass-produce OLED panels according to Apple’s requirements, but only if a large enough order was placed.

In light of recent information, Samsung is ready to mass-produce OLED displays for second-generation iPad models, although it will be a few years before these products materialize.
