Samsung began mass production of the 90Hz OLED laptop screen
Samsung Display is keeping its promise to increase OLED production. The company has begun mass production of laptop-sized 90Hz OLED panels, which will appear in Asus’ 14-inch laptops.
“Demand for laptops has been steadily rising since home and remote learning became the new rules,” said Asus Deputy General Manager Y. Chen said in a statement. “OLED displays can meet a variety of customer needs as they use laptops for school, virtual meetings, video streaming, gaming and more.”
In a statement, Samsung Display said, “The 90Hz OLED panel gives consumers more options for those looking to enjoy high-performance content on their laptops. With our innovative OLEDs, we are at the forefront of the market in display technology that provides excellent image quality. ”
Samsung Display first announced that it would soon begin mass production of OLED panels in January, although it did not specify a list of partners. “OLED panels can better meet the various needs of consumers for laptops used in telework, online learning, video streaming and gaming,” the company said at the time.
While this is Samsung Display’s first official confirmation of mass production, the announcement should come as no surprise to anyone looking at the laptop market. With few exceptions, OLED has been featured on a large number of large, high-end laptops in recent years परंतु but if recent OEM announcements have made some, it will soon be more common in smaller and more affordable notebooks. Last month, major manufacturers, including Asus and Lenovo, announced several OLED laptops in size and price tags, with an option of 90 Hz.
Per Samsung, the new 90 Hz panel will appear on the upcoming 14-inch ZenBook (possibly Asus ZenBook 14X) and 14-inch VivoBook Pro.
The ZenBook 14X, which Asus announced on September 2, will be available with a 4K OLED HDR display or a 2.8K OLED 90HZ display, with models starting at $ 1,399.99. (This is Asus’ most recent ultraportable OLED Zenbook, the Zenbook 13, which has a FHD OLED screen and starts at $ 799.99.)
Asus has also built several of its product lines with new OLED panels. Its Proart StudioBook 16 OLED and ProArt StudioBook 16 are the first 16-inch laptops to include the 4K OLED HDR display, as expected in the Q4. The 14-inch, 15-inch and 16-inch models in the budget-oriented VivoBook line (starting at $ 749.99) are equipped with OLEDs, such as the dual-screen Zenbook Pro Duo 15 and the company’s Ultra-Lite Expertbook business line.
Not to be outdone, Lenovo announced several OLED notebooks earlier this month (using the Samsung OLED panel). The IdeaPad Slim 7 Carbon with a 90Hz OLED screen is coming in October, which Lenovo claims will be the lightest 14-inch OLED laptop on the market at just 2.37 lbs. (It will be a QHD + OLED screen, with a lower resolution than the 4K panel on the Genbook 14X). An OLED Chrome OS tablet with a 13.3-inch Lenovo Chromebook Duet 5, a detectable keyboard case is expected in October. Starting at just $ 429.99, this is likely to be the cheapest laptop featuring OLED technology.
