It seems that in these coming months the word OLED will appear on everyone’s lips, since we are not only going to see the launch of the Nintendo Switch OLED, but we will also see them on a multitude of laptops and screens that will appear in the next few months.
Samsung Announces Availability of 90Hz OLED Panels for Laptops
The South Korean multinational has just released a press release where they talk about the availability of OLED screens with 90 Hz refresh rate for laptops through the following words from the director of the multinational’s product marketing business unit South Korean:
The demand for laptops is increasing as working from home and remote learning have become the new norm. OLED displays can meet the needs of various laptop consumers who use them in schools, virtual meetings, video on demand, video games, and more applications.
In addition, 90 Hz OLED panels offer more options for consumers who want to enjoy high-performance content on their laptops, with our innovative OLED panels, we are innovating and leading the market in display technologies that offer superior image quality .
Beyond this collection of words full of self-promotion, we must bear in mind that Samsung is one of the largest suppliers of laptop screens and its main customers include companies such as ASUS, Lenovo, Dell, HP and obviously the multinational itself.
At the moment ASUS is already making use of these 90 HZ OLED panels from Samsung for laptops, specifically in the 14-inch versions of the Zenbook and the Vivobook Pro, but they will not be the only models that we will see with these screens with these screens, Since if they have reached mass production on a large scale, there are several gaming or work laptops that are going to adopt them.
What advantages do these panels provide?
The first one is the sharpness of these, which is higher than 120 Hz IPS LCD screens, thanks to a 0.9 mm shorter blur length, which is a 10% advantage for OLED displays at 90Hz.
To this must be added other advantages such as the fact of supporting a higher quality contrast. In any case, if the costs are low enough and given Samsung’s own production capacity, this can translate not only into the appearance of laptops with a 90 Hz OLED screen, but also a multitude of gaming monitors.
The spearhead for the adoption of this type of screen in laptops of all kinds is in the energy consumption, since an LCD screen consumes much more this means that the savings in an OLED screen can be translated into a longer battery life. Although we cannot forget problems such as the so-called screen burnout due to the use of still images.
