In 2022, Samsung’s OLED technology could bring new options for televisions and computer displays.
CES, which has become one of the world’s biggest consumer technology shows, is always packed full of interesting gadgets and innovations. One of my favorite parts of the show is the way they highlight new technology that’s helping companies launch their products.
Next generation technology such as OLED displays has been generating buzz at this year’s CES. In addition to TVs and monitors, displays using organic light emitting diode (OLED) technology have become popular for smartphones and tablets. What is QD-OLLED (Quantum Dot – Organic Light Emitting Diode)? How different is it than ordinary organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) and do we really need an additional acronym?
Quantum Dot OLED (QD-OLED) stands for “Quantum Dots Organic Light Emitting Diode”. It was developed by Samsung Display, who began teasing it back in 2019 and is expected to start mass producing them in November. Don’t get tricked into thinking that because Samsung calls their OLED displays “QD-OLED” they’re actually using quantum dots. They aren’t! It has been used for years by people who want to lose It’s just a new version of an old screen tech called OLED (organic light emitting diode). But Samsung says its new screens offer “the widest range of colors” out there. According to Samsung, its new OLED TV sets can display 99.8 percent of DCI P3 color space, which means they’re capable of displaying every shade of red, green, It’s pretty bright for an LCD display, but it’s nothing special compared to some of the best displays available today.
What is QDOLED and how will it change TV?
The first thing you’ll notice about QD-OLED is that it looks like any other OLED display. The only difference is that the pixels are covered with tiny particles instead of being made from pure glass. This makes the screen more flexible and allows manufacturers to use less material. That also means the screen won’t crack or break as easily.
Samsung’s QD-OLEF (Quantum Dot – OLED Film) displays are already on sale in South Korea. And according to Samsung, its QD-OLED displays will be ready for mass production in November. Its QD-OLED TVs will hit stores next year.
How much will QDOLEDs cost? Will they replace traditional LCD/LED TVs?
It depends on what kind of TV you buy. If you go for a cheaper model, then yes, you might find yourself buying a cheaper TV. However, if you spend $2,000-$5,000 on a high end TV, you probably don’t want to switch over to a cheaper model.
Samsung’s QDLED TVs will come in 55-, 65-, 75-, 85-, and 90-inch sizes. You can expect to pay around $1,500 for a 55-inch set, while the most expensive models will cost around $4,000. Samsung hasn’t announced pricing yet for its QD-OLELF displays.
