According to DigiTimes, the source of either accurate information or inaccurate rumor, is reporting that Samsung Corning Precision (SCP), a joint venture between Samsung and Corning that makes LCD glass primarily for Samsung, will be producing G8 glass 2,200mm x 2,500mm to support S-LCD’s (a joint venture between Samsung and Sony) new G8 LCD fab that will be up and running in the fall of 2007.
