Both companies were to sign a contract for the delivery of up to 1 million in the second half of 2021 and up to 4 million next year of such panels by the South Korean giant.

Samsung intends to use OLED panels from LG in the production of TV sets.
To this end, LG Display plans to increase production capacity focused on OLED displays to dominate this market. TrendForce reports that out of 25 million panels created last year by producers, 8 million is OLED. It is logical that LG will increase production to meet Samsung's orders. Meanwhile, the creators of the Galaxy series prefer to focus on the new QD-OLED technology – TV sets equipped with the above-mentioned solution will go on sale in the fourth quarter of 2021. Probably the partnership itself will not be cheap for Samsung. Interestingly, LG and Samsung have cooperated with each other before on the occasion of LCD displays. However, both companies have not confirmed the media revelations, so they should be approached with a dose of the reserve.
Samsung also intended to use the services of the Chinese display manufacturer BOE, which was to supply OLED panels for M-series smartphones. As with TVs, the South Korean company wants to give greater priority to creating high-end screens on premium phones such as the Galaxy S21. If Samsung is satisfied with the offer then it will help BOE win more customers.
