Samsung, LG Touting Ultra-Thinner TVs


Samsung Electronics and LG Electronics are planning to tap more marketability in ultra-thinner television sets using organic display technology by spending a sizable amount of money for an initial investment.

“Samsung Mobile Display (SMD), a joint venture between Samsung Electronics and Samsung SDI in organic panels, is reviewing the possibility to build an OLED line in Tangjeong, South Chungcheong Province, by using 5.5th-generation technology for organic panels to be used over 30-inch such TVs,” a high-ranking industry source said Monday.
