And just like that, Samsung Display was born. Built by combining the lesser S-LCD Corporation and Samsung Mobile Display, the new unit is now the largest maker manufacturer of displays. Of course, none of this could have happened without Sony deciding to exit the S-LCD partnership last year. Though vague, Sammy says it plans for this new LCD juggernaut to leverage the company's vast experience and large panel-producing facilities to boost production and demand for its OLEDs while increasing "synergy" (we thought that buzz word died with Nu Metal). You'll find complete PR after the break.
