The company plans to test things out with an initial production count of 4,000.
It looks like our dreams of seeing large OLED displays are finally coming to fruition. The company has announced they'll begin production of 55 inch OLED displays starting as early as 2011.
Samsung will be using 8th generation glass substrates which can be divided into six 55 inch panels and will use existing LCD production technology to create the sets.
This news comes from the Korean based ETNews by way of OLED-Display.net, one of which is originally written in Korean and the other not entirely far from the Google translation. It makes details a bit fuzzy, but from the sound of things, we could be seeing 55 inch OLED screens hitting shelves by 2012.
