QD-OLED TVs not only from Samsung, but also from Sony? It is highly likely that both giants will present and introduce their first models using this technology in 2022! This is evidenced by repeated, independent reports from Korean media. What to expect from such models? When will we see them?
QD-OLED TVs: Samsung and Sony ready to present the next generation?
About TV sets with matrices QD-OLED We’ve been hearing regularly for almost two years. In March 2020, the world went round photos from the visit of a prototype of such a receiver from Samsung. It was around then that it became clear that sooner or later such models would appear in stores. You can read about the specifics and advantages of QD-OLED technology below, but first, let’s focus on the latest news.
Well, it turns out that Sony can go hand in hand with Samsung, which is also planning to introduce its QD-OLED to stores! A few months ago, we even heard that it is possible to deliver Quantum Dot OLED panels by Samsung Display (producer’s) also for Sony and Panasonic molds. Later, however, the topic subsided. Until now!
FlatpanelsHD cites many reports from the Korean media. These unanimously argue that in early 2022 we will see QD-OLED TVs from both Samsung and Sony. Such information appeared in the pages of Business Korean, Chosun Biz and ETnews. What else follows from them? Sony was to come to the conclusion that such a move could be profitable. The QD-OLED panel is to be delivered to the Japanese in November! We guess that’s mainly for flagship models. Samsung Display was about to start mass production of such matrices.
As for the premiere from Samsung, we are almost sure that the Koreans will introduce their first TV with a QD-OLED panel. We will probably see it for the first time in January 2022 during CES 2022. It is supposed to debut in stores in the first half of next year. It is not clear, however, whether Sony also plans to present QD-OLED TVs at CES 2022.
What distinguishes QD-OLED panels?
Latest displays Quantum Dot they do not rely solely on backlighting, as the red, green and blue sub-pixels that make up each pixel become self-sufficient when excited by light and provide a much higher level of brightness. QD-OLED can also introduce extended color reproduction and the perfect black level known from the current technology OLED, which has been available on the market since LG Display. OLED panels currently produced by LG – WOLED – have reached a certain brightness limit HDR, which cannot be exceeded within this technology, even with the implementation of new generation panels (OLED evo). Moreover, according to calculations DSCC (Display Supply Chain Consultants), the square meter production of QD-OLED substrates will be $ 26while the production of WOLED substrates costs money $ 95 per square meter.
What is QNED technology? What will change in televisions?
Samsung is working intensively on the technology Quantum Nano Emitting Diode, in brief QNED, which is to allow the replacement of the blue light emitter currently used by the manufacturer with a new one, better in many aspects. The implementation of the new technology would bring a number of benefits. Samsung is counting on a new emitter it will be more efficient, brighter and eliminate all potential problemswhich occur with OLED– emitters (also firing).
QNED, like QD-OLED, is a technology very similar to OLED – it uses LEDs that do not require an external power supply. In this case, however the total emission area is said to exceed the capacity of OLEDs ten times! It is not hard to guess that this entails much higher brightness produced by the matrix. Samsung wants to make sure QNED panels emit more light than any other.
QNED is not a new term in the world of televisions. LG presented models with the same serial name this year, to which, however, Samsung’s largest competitors did not manage to obtain exclusive rights. It is therefore possible that the largest producer and seller of TV sets in the world will eventually decide to introduce its own name, as was the case with this year’s family Neo QLED with dies Mini LED.
