SDC to Triple Flexible OLED Production in 2015

The OLED Association says that Samsung has been investing in existing fabs, aiming to triple flexible OLED production by the end of the year. A new tool from Tera Semicon will be installed. Capacity will rise from around 3 million panels to 8-9 million. SDC will first expand production at its G5.5 A2 fab, says the OLED-A, due to higher yield rates than the G6 A3 line. Current cumulative yield rate is around 40%. The Association says that, due to the success of the Galaxy S6 Edge, flexible displays will be built into the Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy Note 7 and other future products.

It also said that the foldable displays that it has shown over the last year and a half may finally come into products.
