    Out with the old and in with the new seems to be Samsung's motto, at least as far as their factories are concerned. According to the latest report from Korea, Sammy is planning on selling their LCD factory so they can focus exclusively on new and future OLED display tech.

Not only do they supply themselves with OLED display tech for various products, many of the other electronics companies globally get some of their OLED stuff from them too. According to the report, Samsung has already shut down its L5 LCD production facility, and plans to sell off any idle equipment. This sell off could generate tens of billions of won for the company.
