What really surprised me about that LG press release is the part announcing that full production of OLED panels is already underway at LG factories located in Mexico, Brazil, China, Poland and Thailand, i had no idea, WOW !
I imagine by now LG has spent a few billion $$$ developing OLED technology + implementing manufacturing lines and processing but i had no idea the company has already located manufacturing lines in other countries besides South Korea; That must have added a few billion $$$ more to the total cost.
I guess there is no equivocation that the home electronics division of LG is fully/completely/entirely committed to the future of OLED displays; I wonder if the company will even bother to invest more capital in LCD manufacturing plants...

Panels still manufactured in Korea. Assembled into finished units in the countries listed. Doing it in Mexico reduces import tariffs to USA.
