Samsung Display, one of the world’s largest maker of displays, said Tuesday that it has exceeded 300 million panels in cumulative OLED (organic light emitting diode) panel production since mass production began in January 2007. That volume averages out to having produced more than 470 thousand panels a day, or 5.4 panels a second.

Since Samsung Display mass produced the world's first OLED panels in 2007, its OLED displays have been used in smartphones, tablet PCs and digital cameras. While it took Samsung Display four and a half years to reach the initial 100 million production mark for OLED panels, the next 100 million units were produced in just eleven months, and the last 100 million units were produced in only seven months. Recently Samsung Display demonstrated bendable OLED displays (pictured, image by Japan Today web-site) as well as the world's first curved OLED TVs.

"After six years of nearly constant production, we have achieved a monumental milestone in producing 300 million panels, which represents the vast majority of OLED panels produced during that time. Samsung Display will accelerate its leadership in OLED production by introducing the next generation OLED technology, including large-sized TV panels and flexible displays," said Kinam Kim, the president and CEO of Samsung Display.

Samsung Display has 98% market share in the OLED panel market. Its OLED technology is considered the premium technology for the next generation of displays due to OLED’s high color gamut, more vivid and natural images than conventional display technologies, and optimized features for future displays including flexible and transparent display technologies.

Yes, but she costs more than the TV and she comes with a remote control that controls you.
