Samsung’s LCD Making Days Are Over

Published

on


In the news in tech, the smartphone-making giant Samsung has decided to shut down its LCD-making business for 31 years.

Samsung Display has recently transported its last major fabrication glass into its L8-2 line in its Asan campus in South Chungcheong Province, which produces large-size LCDs for TVs; this is the largest possible size of glass that a factory can manufacture that will not break under its weight. 

Samsung Electronics first launched its LCD business in 1991 and beat Japanese competitors through slim LCD TVs. It ranked number 1 in TV panels in 2008.

However, SDC (Samsung Display Co.) is likely to exit this business after completing the 1.2 million panel target. This target is 93.8% less than last year’s 19.3 million units shipped. Samsung could also sell the L8-2 line and other equipment to Chinese manufacturers. It is ironic because one of the major reasons for Samsung’s exit is Chinese competitors in the same business with extremely low prices. The Chinese captured a 30.6 % share in 2018 and continue to increase to 50.7 % of the market.

Samsung is also facing the issue of a shortage of components and trying several mergers & acquisitions across the globe to advance in other areas of tech, especially memory & storage solutions, semiconductors and foundry business.

Samsung has already in between an M&A deal with LG for QD-OLED panel and has already started new investments in different world regions.

However, Samsung could extend the date of the complete shutdown seeing the demand for the large panels from tv makers and soaring high prices after the pandemic.

Samsung will also relocate staff to other Samsung Electronics display solutions businesses and QD-Oled & OLED production units.

Samsung has already put down the description of LCD tech on its website, a show of prowess in QD-OLED tech.

The shortage of components, extremely competitive prices, and a big decline in the LCD market is the reason for Samsung’sSamsung’s current withdrawal from the LCD business.

Samsung already has a diverse investment and is thinking of pushing through their QD-OLED TVs because saturation hasn’t settled yet in this area until the QD-OLED display becomes the norm.

For Samsung’s foldable enthusiasts, especially those who are eagerly waiting for the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 6, here’s a small glimpse for you. 

Leaks and rumors always spoil the surprises regarding upcoming Galaxy devices that Samsung hides for its big events, such as Galaxy Unpacked. The same case has happened for the Galaxy Z Fold 6 unit since rumors unveiled a small glimpse of what looks like a real Galaxy Z Fold 6. A leaked image showcases the actual look of the device. 

However, in the image, only the top of the smartphone is visible, so there’s not enough to guess more here, but something is better than nothing, as this image confirms that the Galaxy Z Fold 6’s design will be flatter and also have sharper edges and corners as compared to the Galaxy Z Fold 5. It seems that the phone has a wider cover screen. That could just be a result of the angle at which the photo was taken, but there have been tons of indicators that Samsung is putting a certain extent of a of a larger cover display on the next Fold, and now the image appears to confirm that.

The Korean giant is also rumored to be working on a Galaxy Z Fold 6 Slim that will have a fair measurement of larger displays on the inside and outside while also having a thinner profile. This variant is expected to arrive by the end of this year. The Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6 are on their way to make their debuts at the Galaxy Unpacked Event on July 10.

Samsung Galaxy enthusiasts, especially those who are photography-addicted too, get ready for the biggest camera upgrade ever on the upcoming Galaxy S25 Ultra

Before even any official statement release or launch, dozens of leaks and rumors are blowing in the market regarding Samsung’s next-generation Galaxy S25 series, which is supposed to arrive in early 2025. Now the new report is hinting at a major camera upgrade. 

If the new report is to be believed, the upcoming Galaxy S25 Ultra will feature a 50MP ultra-wide camera. Samsung launched its Galaxy S10 series back in 2019, and from then to the recently launched Galaxy S24 series, none of them features a 50MP ultrawide camera yet. Fortunately, if this report comes true, then the Galaxy S25 Ultra will be the first Galaxy device with a higher resolution ultrawide since the sensor was introduced. 

This is being speculated by a post on X shared by a tipster who claims that the Galaxy S25 Ultra will feature a 50MP ultrawide camera, and it will be the first Galaxy device with this high resolution since the sensor was introduced to the lineup initially with the Galaxy S10 series. The recently launched Galaxy S24 Ultra has a 12 MP ultrawide camera, and its predecessor, the Galaxy S23 Ultra, also has a 12 MP ultrawide camera.

Apart from this, it was also reported recently that the Galaxy S25 Ultra could feature 8K recording across all rear cameras.
