Business Korea: Samsung to decide on its QD-OLED TV plans soon

Samsung has not committed yet to its QD-OLED TV technology, and according to a new report from Korea the company will make its final decision by the end of June (or early July). Samsung originally planned to hold an investment review committee on April 2019 but that did not materialize. According to an industry insider, Samsung already decided to start QD-OLED TV production, the only question is timing.

Samsung's plan is to shut down an LCD TV production line and convert it to QD-OLED production - although Business Korea now suggests that another possibility is to build a new production line instead of its planned A5 fab (which was delayed/canceled in early 2018).

Vkansee partners with Tianma for future under-the-OLED fingerprint sensor technology

US-based OLED fingerprint sensor developer Vkansee announced a partnership with Tianma to apply Vkansee's MAPIS OLED technology for TianMa's OLED displays.

Vkansee says that its fingerprint sensor optical resolution reaches 800 PPI, and its signal-to-noise ratio is 10 times better than competitive collimator or lens optical fingerprint solutions. Vkansee’s proprietary Matrix Pinhole Image Sensing (MAPIS) is integrated into the mobile phone OLED display panel, effectively turning the entire display into a high-resolution fingerprint lens.

Samsung is asking Apple to compensate it for not reaching its iPhone OLED agreed order quantities

According to a report from Korea, when Apple secured its flexible AMOLED supply from Samsung for the iPhone X (and later XS and XS Plus) it committed to a minimum order quantity. As sales of the iPhones were slower than expected, the company did not reach its MOQ, and is now facing penalties of hundreds of millions of dollars.

It seems as if Apple is reluctant to pay the penalty (which isn't a big surprise) and is offering some alternative routes for Samsung - including the option of ordering OLED displays for future iPads or laptops (this coincides with a report from Korea last month).
