Earlier this year, 11 former employees or employees of Samsung Mobile Display were arrested and charged for the theft of the company's 55-inch AMOLED TV technology and leakage to the LG.

Samsung spokesman said: "By means of enticing our researchers to quit, LG Display has been trying to get our  OLED technology and trade secrets." It was said that Samsung has invested more than 1 trillion won in the display technology in the past 10 years, the company claimed to hold nearly 99% market share of the global OLED.
