Samsung Electronics’ display-making unit Samsung Display will end its entire production of liquid crystal display (LCD) panels in South Korea and China by the end of 2020. The unit has already suspended one of its two LCD production lines on its local soil, citing falling demand for the panels. Reportedly, Samsung will now focus more on quantum dot panels, the next technology in the display space.
‘We will supply ordered LCDs to our customers by the end of this year without any issues,’ the company said (via Reuters). In October, Samsung had said that it would invest 13.1 trillion won (approx $11 billion) to upgrade a production line. This line will then be used for mass production of ‘quantum dot’ displays. As mentioned, Samsung has two LCD production lines in South Korea and two in China.
Recently, Samsung launched ‘funbelievable’ series of LED TVs at a starting price of as low as Rs 12,990. The TVs come with features like personal computer mode, a music system, and internet browsing capabilities. The line-up is available in 32-inch and 43-inch variants. There is also a 32-inch non-smart TV variant.
With the content guide mode, users can watch movies and TV shows from streaming apps such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Zee5, SonyLIV, and VOOT. You can also choose skins from a library to enhance the overall audio experience by adding visual elements on the screen.
