OLED technology works real miracles on our smartphones and tablets. Unfortunately, it is still very expensive to produce in larger diagonals. That doesn’t demotivate Samsung, it seems.
If the LCD is a technology that has been around for a very long time, it has been regularly improved and refined, so that it is still very present on the market today. TheYOU ARE does better, certainly, but the latter is still very expensive to produce, especially as the size of the slab increases. This is why laptops with OLED displays are very rare these days. But Samsung is coming.
Samsung Display to Produce 90Hz OLED Screens for Laptops
The vast majority of laptops still use LCD technology for their screens. And there’s a reason: it’s simply because LCD panels are less expensive to produce, especially in larger sizes. That’s not to say that laptops with OLED displays don’t exist on the market, but LCD is just much more popular. That being said, Samsung wants to make a difference.
Technology should quickly become popular in this market
Samsung Display has just announced the start of production of 90Hz OLED displays designed for laptops. This not only means that we will start to see more OLED laptops on the market, but also that they will have a refresh rate of 90 Hz, higher than the current standard of 60 Hz.
Interestingly, laptops are also starting to adopt higher refresh rates. These were previously reserved, so to speak, for external screens, and then we saw them appear in our smartphones. It seems the time has come for our computers to finally take advantage. So of course, with 90 Hz, we are still quite far from the 120 or even 144 Hz of some screens, but it is a more than welcome update.
According to the South Korean giant, most users won’t be able to perceive the difference since, in terms of blur and smearing, a 90Hz OLED screen is practically on par with a 120Hz LCD. And although Samsung Display Citing no names in its statement, the firm says several “global IT companies” are expected to launch computers with its new displays later this year.
