Samsung announced that it has developed the world’s first 15.6-inch UHD OLED display with a resolution of 3840×2160 pixels for laptops. Samsung will start mass producing the displays in mid-February.

The OLED displays are thinner and more power efficient compared to LCD displays, according to Samsung.

The displays will have a price tag ranging from $50 to $60( ₹3500- ₹4200) which is more expensive than other LCD displays. The market observers expect a rise in the demand for laptops using UHD OLED panels in 2019, said Samsung.

With the new UHD OLED displays, Samsung will be focusing on premium display segments as the display panels are said to have a higher resolution, better viewing angles, and low blue light emission. It also comes with DisplayHDR True Black specification certification from VESA.

Compared to LCD panels of the same size, the Samsung UHD OLED 15.6-inch display comes with 1.7 times higher color volume, according to Samsung. This allows the display to 3.4 million colors and the DCI-P3 color gamut.

The display panels come with full HDR compatibility and offer a brightness level of up to 600 nits. It has a dynamic contrast ratio of 120,000:1, which enables the display to show deeper blacks and brighter whites.

Samsung already makes AMOLED displays for various smartphone manufacturers including Apple and with the new display for laptops, Samsung is looking forward to expanding its business to the IT market.

Although Samsung has not yet stated which laptop manufacturer will land their notebooks with the new display panels, although given its a panel made for premium segment, it would be wise to assume that companies like Dell and Lenovo will get their hands on the panel.

Nevertheless, OLED panels have their own set of cons like screen burn-in and an overall shorter lifespan.
