This week, a report indicated that Apple COO Tim Cook traveled overseas to see Samsung’s latest AMOLED technology. The trip was reportedly used to assess the idea of using Samsung AMOLED displays in a future iPad.
However, a new analysis now claims that Samsung will not be able to produce enough 9.7-inch displays to meet the required capacity for Apple’s upcoming, but announced, next-generation iPad.
The new analysis comes from OLED-display.net who made the case that Samsung is expected to focus more on small- to medium-sized OLED panels. These production lines are set to begin within the next two weeks.
The report further outlines Samsung’s upcoming production plans, explaining that Samsung’s total productive capacity is expected to be upwards of 8 million 4-inch OLED panels per month by the end of 2011.
Furthermore, Samsung has reportedly delayed investments of larger displays of six to nine inches until 2012. The iPad features a 9.7-inch display
I’m always slightly skeptical about reports that detail what Apple “can’t do”, as sometimes Apple meets or exceeds expectations even when the naysayers expect otherwise.
