Nikkei Electronics reporter Takuya Otani, quotes a Samsung staffer saying, the RGB organic light emitting materials are formed by vapor deposits. A fine metal mask is employed. Fluorescent materials are used for red and green and phosphorescent materials are used for the color blue.

The Samsung 40-inch OLED panel is a bottom emission type with a microcavity structure to improve the color gamut, added the staffer.
