The Police is investigating the involvement of Samsung on a recent report filed by LG which states that their OLED technology was leaked . Both the companies are under criminal probe after LG employees were charged for stealing technology from Samsung.
Samsung has said,
We have no reason to steal other companies’ technology, as we have the world’s best OLED technology.
