LG Says OLED Panels Will Cost Less Than LCD Panels In 2016

LG has outlined its OLED roadmap, and there's good stuff coming up. Its 15-inch OLED panel takes on Sony in November, followed by 20- and 30-inch versions in 2010 and 2011. Oh, and 40-inch OLED TVs are coming in 2012.

Those 40-inch panels will still be "fairly expensive", but LG says new manufacturing processes will drive down costs by 2016.

LG Display aims to achieve a 50% higher material cost and a 30% lower yield than those of LCD panels in 2012 and a 20-30% lower material cost and an equivalent yield in 2016.

That's a pretty big call, but I like where their head's at. [Nikkei via OLED-Display.net]
