Since all of this is speculative, I suppose it's possible that this is all bravado and PR
spin, but I don't see the pay off for LG in doing it. Assuming that Koreans line up to make orders, orders which are said to be fulfilled a month later, failure to deliver would not only wipe out any PR
advantage, but would anger many people and create a very bad image problem for LG.
"LG is prepared to ramp up quickly to take the lead in the OLED segment that is expected to grow to 7.2 million units by 2016, according to Display Search."
This would be a pretty bold statement if the "shocking news" regarding OLED development were true in the sense that some are interpreting it. I think that there may very well be some real production issues for panels larger than 55", but whereas LG, Samsung, and others are diverting resources and attention to 4K panels...which are easier to make, and hopefully lucrative...I don't see these companies throwing their considerable investment in OLED into the rubbish bin.
Press releases and "news" in this industry, whether good or bad, are rarely a glimpse into what is really happening on the inside. To a certain extent they are mostly written by people on the "outside." It's also true that, as in the news and press releases in the stock trading world, news stories may be used to manipulate, to raise or lower expectations.
So, I remain cautiously optimistic that OLED, or some variant thereof, will make it into the marketplace.
