Samsung Show has introduced plans to mass-produce the world’s first 90Hz OLED screens designed for laptops and says that “a number of international IT firms” are anticipated to launch fashions with the brand new panels this yr. Manufacturing will start in March in “very massive portions,” the corporate says in a statement attributed to CEO Choi Joo-sun.
The panels are 14-inch in dimension, although Samsung Show hasn’t given particulars on specs like facet ratio or decision; it’s potential that there might be a number of variations accessible. Samsung does cite the quicker response time of its OLED panels, claiming “virtually” the identical quantity of blurring as a 120Hz LCD when displaying fast-moving content material. No potential laptop computer OEM companions had been named within the assertion.
OLED shows aren’t remarkable in laptops, however they’re by no means commonplace. Whereas fairly a couple of gaming laptops provide them as an possibility, the tradeoff there’s that you just’ve had to surrender on excessive refresh charges. And regardless of Samsung itself launching an OLED-equipped Galaxy Chromebook final yr, the 2021 followup makes use of a less expensive QLED-branded LCD show as a substitute.
Samsung is the world’s largest vendor of OLED show panels, so the announcement immediately means that OLED laptops are more likely to develop into rather more of a standard sight this yr.
