According to SGS the new panels are able to hitting a brightness of 1,000 nits, and can show over 90 p.c of the BT.2020 shade area, which each characterize substantial enhancements over present OLED TVs available on the market, in any other case often known as WOLEDs.
The figures are consistent with people who have been put out by YouTube channel LinusTechTips (LTT) final week, in a video that was sponsored by Samsung Display. So it’s notable that these comparatively spectacular specs have now been validated by an unbiased certification firm, albeit solely partially.
LinusTechTip’s video compares the QD-OLED’s specs with LG’s G1 OLED, which was its flagship from final 12 months and has an OLED Evo panel. According to LTT, Samsung Display’s QD-OLED hit virtually 200 nits in fullscreen brightness, rising to 1000 nits over a ten p.c patch, and 1500 nits over a 3 p.c portion of the display (generally, the much less of an OLEDs display it has to light up, the brighter it can get). In distinction, Rtings assessment of the LG G1 has it hitting a most peak of 167 nits in fullscreen brightness, 827 nits on a ten p.c window, and 846 on a 2 p.c window.

Importantly, Samsung Display’s new panel seems to realize this with out sacrificing the prevailing advantages of OLED shows. These embrace pure blacks the place no gentle is being emitted in any respect, to not point out wonderful viewing angles in comparison with typical LCD TVs. In truth, SGS says the viewing angles of Samsung Display’s QD-OLEDs are even higher than current OLEDs, sustaining 80 p.c of luminance when considered from a 60-degree angle in comparison with 53 p.c for a traditional OLED.
An essential caveat is that every one of those comparisons have been made with LG’s 2021 flagship, which is because of be outdated this 12 months when it releases a new lineup of OLED TVs. LG Display additionally has a new era of OLED panels of its personal, dubbed OLED EX, which it says supply elevated brightness ranges of as much as 30 p.c. Whether that’s sufficient to stay aggressive with Samsung’s new panels stays to be seen.
We’ll nonetheless have to attend for client TVs to really make it to market utilizing each panels earlier than we can be utterly positive of those readings, however it’s wanting like a powerful set of outcomes for Samsung Display’s newest expertise. And Samsung’s show arm produces panels for a wide range of firms, so it gained’t simply be Samsung’s personal TVs that profit.
The query nonetheless stays when, precisely, Samsung Display’s new panels will really go on sale.
