The Covid-19 pandemic heavily affected the industry as around every single OEM is facing a shortage of chips. Due to the supply imbalance, Samsung has already cancelled its iconic Galaxy Note flagship for this year and the new information suggests it could cut the production of another product.
According to the information, Samsung reportedly confirmed that if the global chip shortage does not stop, it may be unable to produce smart TVs. Recently, the company introduced its new TVs with Micro LED panels, which could increase the prices of these products if the current chip shortage continues.
Han Jong-hee, head of the display business at Samsung Electronics said – “The industry in general is facing a severe supply shortage. If this continues, we may not be able to produce televisions.”
He added – “We are doing everything possible to avoid problems. Samsung Electronics has held meetings with Taiwanese chipmakers to conclude reciprocally this year and next. The company is safe for this year. “
Although worried about the lack of semiconductors, Han Zhongxi confirmed that Samsung’s 146-inch micro LED mass production line is now fully operational. Samsung confirmed that this wall-mounted TV will be added to 110-, 70- and 80-inch models later this year.
