In February 2019 it was reported that Samsung Display will hold an investment review committee on April 2019 to decide whether to go ahead with plans to start producing QD-OLED TV panels - and then commence mass production by the end of 2020.

According to a new report from China, Samsung will indeed go ahead with its QD-OLED production plans, but at a slower pace than was first estimated. Samsung will only begin trial production towards the end of 2020, with real mass production on a new 10-Gen line only at around 2023.

In addition, the report says that that Samsung has decided to convert a 8-Gen line (and not a 8.5-Gen as was first suggested) which means that Samsung will concentrate on 55" or smaller sizes (as the 8-Gen line is not large enough for efficient 65" production) which will make it difficult to compete with lower-cost LCDs. Samsung is said to also prototype 77" QD-OLEDs, though, which is a bit confusing.
