LG AMOLED Production To Dethrone Samsung This Year
Following continued expansion of its flexible AMOLED production lines, LG Display is tipped to spending more on capital expenditure (‘capex’) this year than rival Samsung Display – notably for the first time since 2012.
According to Taiwanese trade publication, DigiTimes, LG Display’s capex increased significantly in 2017, following first and second phase production lines for its flexible AMOLED screens.
As previously reported, LG Display has trademarked its rollable OLED screens ‘ROLED’.
Sources state LG Display’s capital expenditure will notch even higher in 2018, as more AMOLED lines enter commercial production.
