Samsung intends to build the largest in the world's OLED production plant, reports The Investor with reference to informed sources. This fits in well with the fact that in the new iPhone 8, as expected, will be used screens in the light-emitting organic diode.

The factory under the name of A5 includes two main, located in South Korean cities Cheonan and Asanas (province of South jeolla). In the company plans to issue monthly 180 000 up to 270 000 OLED of panels, which almost 30% more volume of production in the largest at this time, Samsung factory - A3.

The volume of the investment will be around $ 20 million USD. If the process will start this year, the plant can win full power by 2019.

Earlier this week it was reported that Apple runs the risk of facing the shortage of iPhone 8 in the output due to problems with OLED production. Until the official announcement of its smartphone, scheduled for September, Samsung Display can put only 3-4 million OLED panels. In this regard, there are fears that Apple can not before the end of the year to sell 50-60 million iPhone 8, as previously planned.

As expected, the new flagship is available 5.8 inches OLED display, wireless connection to charge and will have a metal body and glass. It will come out in the month of September along with the iPhone 7s and the iPhone 7s Plus, which will be satisfied with LCD screens.

At this time Samsung Display continues to dominate the OLED market. Analysts estimate the company's share in the smartphone and tablet screens segment of the 2016 results in 96.7%.

LG Display intends to narrow Samsung in the global OLED market for smartphones and has already taken concrete steps in this regard. The company reached an agreement on the supply of screens of China Xiaomi, and is negotiating for this same reason with other вендорами of the Chinese People's Republic.

LG Display expects to come out in the monthly production volume of about 120 thousand OLED panels, which roughly corresponds to half of today's supply of such Samsung Display screens.
