Samsung's VP of Display R&D said there's still a need for a new panel technology:
Although the scale of the TFT LCD industry currently is large enough, the development of new panel technology for panel makers is still necessary, according to Jun H. Souk, executive vice president of Samsung Electronics Display R&D LCD business.

He added that to meet future demand, besides TFT LCD technology, panel makers will need to develop other advanced panel technologies to support the market.

In response, Samsung Electronics expects to launch a 14-inch OLED panel in 2009, Souk noted. However, he admitted that the OLED technology is not 100% ready yet.
Samsung is also working on more paper-like display panels and more portable and power-efficient models.
