Korean display leaders LG Display and Samsung Display go after clients worldwide with the newest form factors and display performance. The COVID-19 pandemic increased consumer electronics consumption, which LG and Samsung aim to capitalize, boosting and improving their products.
LG Display would launch its double-purpose screen that acts as a TV and game monitor at the Consumer Electronics Show. The online Consumer Electronics Show 2021 would happen on January 11.
LG Display’s monitor would become flat when used as a TV and curved when utilized as a gaming monitor. The display monitor boasts of a 48-inch bendable Cinematic Sound Organic Light-emitting Diode (OLED) panel. Its paper-thin panel enables the bendable CSO to bend enough to create a loop 2 meters across.
Additionally, LG Display’s OLED technology allows each pixel to impart light, enabling the panel to suffice as a display. The display also does not require an additional speaker because the panel vibrates to release cinematic sounds.
LG Display developed an exciter, 0.6 millimeters thick, to preserve its bendable CSO’s quality and design. Exciters generally measure 9 millimeters thick, which could vibrate and produce sound, and situated at the panel’s back.
Only OLED panels could create sound through vibration. Sound from the screen originates forward rather than from out of the sides and bounced off the walls and furniture. This feature increases efficiency and reduces noise pollution.
The 48-inch bendable CSO panel involves a super-low latency of 0.1-millisecond response rate and a play rate of up to 120 frames per second. LG Display’s OLED panel also contains flicker-free features suitable for the eyes and minimizes blue light emissions.
On the other hand, Samsung Display introduces OLED laptop screens in 10 different products with varying sizes from 13.3-inch to 16-inch monitors.
According to Kim Sung-chul, Samsung Display’s president of the small display unit, COVID-19, brought out remote education, gaming, and the home office. These results imparted energy into the IT industry, where Samsung’s OLED technology would improve laptops.
Samsung Display increased its annual target sales due to a higher demand brought by online education and work-from-home lifestyles. The company also anticipates more IT companies and client firms to launch products with OLED screens this year.
Additionally, Samsung Display announced its 15.6-inch ultrahigh-definition product and started providing OLED laptop screens in 2019. Last year, the company also introduced full-high-definition and quad-high-definition products.
OLED screens allow products to contain slimmer designs and lighter weights, making them portable and easy to carry.
OLEDs include a faster response rate than LCDs and a superior contrast that shows deep darkness below 0.0005 nits. OLED monitors could also express 100 percent of the DCI-P3 color standards while LCDs only reach 74 percent.
