Samsung Display said Thursday it will mass-produce organic light-emitting diode (OLED) displays for laptops with a higher refresh rate in the first quarter of the year as the Korean panel maker eyes increasing sales amid the pandemic.
Samsung Display, a display affiliate of Samsung Electronics, has commercialized a new power-saving function for displays called adaptive frequency. The system is being used for the first time in the new Galaxy Note 20 Ultra.
Samsung Display has begun installing quantum dot (QD) display production equipment to replace outdated liquid crystal display (LCD) production lines, as part of its broader transition toward more advanced panels.
Korea's big electronics companies will likely lose their global dominance in mobile OLED panel production to Chinese competitors by 2024 as Chinese panel makers ramp up production to seize on the growing demand for the advanced screen type.
