Samsung Plans Mass Manufacture Of 15.6″ 4K OLED Display

After 4K notebook displays made waves at CES 2019, Samsung has announced plans to mass-produce the “world’s first” 15.6-inch 4K OLED notebook displays. Whether the displays make it to Australia remains unclear.

Samsung claims that this OLED panel is a “world’s first” of its kind and will offer a total 4K resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 with a brightness range of up to 0.0005 to 600 nits and a spectrum of 34 million colours.

The Korean tech giant also boasts that the panel can produce blacks up to 200 times darker and twice as bright as traditional LCD panels, maximising HDR for high-quality video and images.

As seen in Samsung’s sample product image above, it also features thin bezels, a change in design from the Galaxy Book 2 which features thick bezels and 2K resolution.

“Our 15.6-inch UHD OLED panel provides the most suitable display solutions for carry-on IT devices with outstanding HDR enhancements, unparalleled colour reproduction and much-improved outdoor visibility,” said Jae-nam Yun, head of marketing at Samsung Display.

“We have no doubt that our new OLED display will offer a much superior visual experience to notebook users worldwide.”

CES 2019, sparked a growing trend of 4K OLED notebooks, with Lenovo updating their Yoga line, Dell dropping LCD for 4K OLED in its upcoming XPS 15, Alienware m15, and G15, among others.

Samsung plans to begin manufacturing the 4K OLED panels in mid-February 2019 but hasn’t confirmed which laptop makers will be using them in their devices. Whether we see the panels in Australia is uncertain.
