[The Hankyoreh, October 24 2007] Samsung mulls investing in 10th-generation LCD production line: executive

Samsung Electronics Co., South Korea's electronics giant, is considering investing in a 10th-generation production line for liquid crystal display (LCD) panels in a bid to increase high-end and large-sized panel products, a top executive said Wednesday.

Succeeding generation technologies allow manufacturers to produce larger panels at a cheaper price.

"As soon as investment currently underway for the eighth-generation production line is completed, we will explore whether to invest in a 10th generation line," Lee Sang-wan, head of Samsung's LCD business division, told reporters on the sidelines of a tech show in Japan.
