Beijing BOE Optoelectronics Technology Co. (BOE OT) is negotiating with South Korea-based Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd on the manufacture of 17-inch LCD monitor panels.

BOE OT did not provide any details regarding the purchase agreement, but says the BOE Group is working with Samsung for back-end module production.

BOE OT is set to complete equipment installation next month and will increase its monthly capacity to 60,000 units. The company's fifth-generation (5G) facility currently has a monthly capacity of 10,000 units. Majority of its products are 17in LCD substrates but it can also manufacture 15in monitor panels, 15.4in notebook panels and LCD TV panels measuring 20.1-inch 26-inch and 32-inch.

BOE OT adds that it is mulling on adopting price hikes for its 17-inch LCD panels, in line with counterparts from Taiwan and South Korea that are boosting their LCD selling prices. WitsView Technology says the segment currently has an average selling price of $160.
