LG has decent OLED phones the LG V50 and Quad DAC an audio lovers dream.
They need to keep that. And they need to diversify its customers buying 6.5” and larger or smaller OLED Displays. The OLED Displays on the Google Pixels all of them look amazing.
Sadly Samsung has dominated probably with extremely low prices ALL of the 2019 OLED 15” Laptop Displays from
Alienware, Dell, HP, Lenovo, Gigabyte all feature 15” OLED Displays. Samsung wants Apple to place an order so 2019 is a big test launch or real world Beta test of its 15” OLED Displays none of the warranties cover burn in so let’s see how the Laptops fair overtime.
LG isn’t turning back it’s new Fabs will allow lower prices and greater profits. Enough to recoup its 4 Billion dollar investment.
Also LG needs to invest and improve its Non-OLED 4K TV line. And to Fully Warranty their TV against burn in.
Their current approach is spot on, if Samsung would stop undercutting them giving away 15” OLED Laptop Displays. LG could claim some of that market share. Hopefully Apple decides to go OLED in its 15” MacBook Pros or iPad Pros in the next year or two.
I’d also like to see a square OLED Smartwatch from LG that would turn my OLED TV on to my desired content when I walked in the room or let me switch just by swiping a TV remote smartwatch.
Sadly, LG is under attack on two fronts, one from Samsung, which is entering the OLED market more and more and OLED tech being stolen by China. And LG lost its contract with Huawaei which obviously selected another Chinese’s company BOE to source OLED Phone Displays from.
Now with Chinese OEMs sourcing and making their Own OLED Displays like BOE, and Hisense offering OLED. Competition will be tough and the Chinese don’t fight fair Lol.
Expect really cheap 55” OLED TVs by 2020 from BOE, and Hisense.
