    Samsung to Develop OLED Displays, Again

    While their rival LG has been busy developing OLED displays, Samsung has been focusing on their own spin on LED display. Even though their Quantum Dot Technology has been selling, OLED is all the buzz with many home theater buffs and apparently, Samsung has noticed.

    The company has announced it is once again developing their own OLED line that will also incorporate their Quantum Dot Technology. QD-OLED is said to marry the color and brightness benefits of Quantum Dot Technology with the increased black levels and fast response of OLED.

    According to a story on Forbes,

    The QD-OLED screens apparently use blue OLEDs as their light source instead of the external LED backlights usually associated with Quantum Dot displays. Red and green color filters with a Quantum Dot are then placed on top of the blue OLED, resulting in an enhanced self-emitting OLED-type screen with Quantum Dots on hand to boost color reproduction.

    Removing the need for an external backlight will make QD-OLED TVs thinner and lighter than current QLED sets, as well as substantially increasing their effective viewing angle before color and contrast start to reduce.
    Samsung hasn't announced dates for these to hit the market as they are currently still in the prototype phase. However, it's promising, don't you think?
