Earlier this year, Samsung Display gave us a status update on its efforts to develop high refresh rate OLED panels for the laptop market. Up until this point, OLED panels for notebooks have been stuck at 60Hz, while LCD panels have hit 144Hz, 240Hz, and beyond. This week, the South Korean electronics giant confirmed that its 90Hz laptop panels entered mass production for smoother on-screen action. Despite the perceived refresh rate deficit compared to a 120Hz LCD panel, Samsung Display says that the OLED panel will produce more natural-looking images, while blur length in videos is improved by 10 percent. In addition, the response time for the 90Hz panel is 10x faster than its 120Hz LCD counterparts,... Read more...
We’ve been hearing a lot on the display front from Samsung during the opening days of 2021. Just last week, Samsung revealed its vision for under-display webcams, which would allow laptops with OLED displays to have ultra-slim bezels all around (screen-to-body ration of 93 percent, versus around 85 percent on traditional laptop displays). Today, Samsung is talking up a new innovation with OLED displays for laptops, and this pertains to cranking the refresh rate up to 90Hz. OLED displays up until this point for laptops have featured a refresh rate of 60Hz, which is fine for general productivity work, but not exactly optimum for high FPS gaming. That’s where the 90Hz panels comes... Read more...
Samsung Electronics is doing something next year that smartphone fans have been waiting for. The company allegedly has a new OLED panel that is being built by Samsung Display that fills the hole where the front camera peeks through the screen with tech called Under Display Camera (UDC). To implement the camera under the screen, Samsung is using something called HIAA2 production equipment, which stands for Hole in Active Area. Samsung Display has received equipment to make these new displays at the A4 plant at its Asan Campus, in Chungnam this month. Mass production is expected to start at the facility next year. Currently, that A4 plant has a pair of 5th gen OLED production lines with a production... Read more...
There aren't many manufacturers of smartphone displays in the world, but Samsung Display is one of the biggest suppliers. This display maker of course also cranks out the screens that Samsung uses in its smartphones, including the recently unveiled Galaxy Fold. One of the reasons that the Galaxy Fold smartphone will cost nearly $2,000 is its slick folding screen. It makes sense that Samsung Display would want to ramp-up orders, allowing it to build in larger bulks and reduce prices with the economies of scale. A new report has surfaced that suggests that Samsung Display is doing just that and also has sent folding screen samples to both Apple and Google. The displays that were allegedly... Read more...
A report made the rounds yesterday that claims Apple has decided to use only OLED screens for its iPhone models that will launch next year. That original report drove shares in some of the major iPhone suppliers down. A move by Apple to all OLED would mean a significant reduction in sales for suppliers like Japan Display Inc. and Sharp Corp. Shares of the former declined as much as 21% and the latter declined 4.3%. Neither of those suppliers has been able to build OLED screens in mass quantities yet, however, many analysts doubt that this OLED transition will happen. Apple moved 216 million iPhones in 2017, and getting that many OLED screens from current suppliers is unlikely. Most... Read more...
Few people go out at the top of their game, but it appears that is exactly what Ming-Chi Kuo, KGI Securities analyst for all things Apple, is doing. Kuo has long had the most accurate Apple predictions that are based on sources that he has been able to procure in the Apple supply chain. Kuo is moving on from his post at KGI for another firm, and word is that Kuo will be covering non-Apple companies. So, what gives? We know for iron-clad fact that Apple has been on a witch hunt in all aspects of the company and supply chain to find and silence leakers. Speculation is that Kuo's sources may have been found and the leaks plugged. Without sources, the analyst would no longer be able to hand... Read more...
