[Press Release] Samsung Display Begins Mass Production of 90Hz Refresh Rate Laptop OLED Panels

Its 90Hz OLED panels offer better image blur length than 120Hz LCD panels Samsung Display announced today that the company began mass-producing its 90Hz refresh rate laptop OLED panels, which are featured in the 14-inch versions of the new ASUS Zenbook and Vivobook Pro. Both laptops support up to a 90Hz refresh rate. The refresh rate is the number of times per second that a display shows a new image. A 90Hz refresh rate means that the display can show 90 still images a second. A higher refresh rate enables smoother movements on a display. However, a higher refresh rate also requires a higher capacity graphics card and uses more battery, so it’s not always the optimal choice. An OLED panel responds much faster than an LCD panel and can display a more natural-looking image with a lower refresh rate than an LCD panel. According to Samsung Display’s internal tests, its 90Hz OLED panel showed a blur length of 0.9mm, a 10 percent improvement when compared to a 120Hz LCD panel’s blur length in video playback. Shorter blur length means…

Thanks to its revolutionary, first-of-its-kind integrated polarizer, the Eco2 OLED™ eliminates the need for an additional polarizer layer, an opaque plastic sheet typically attached to displays to prevent the panel from reflecting external light, while increasing contrast and improving visibility. Instead, the Eco2 OLED™ minimizes reflection by leveraging its innovative pixel structure. Since a traditional polarizer adds a dark layer of film on top of the panel, your device requires more light…

[Press Release] Samsung OLED laptops proven to save up to 25 percent more display energy in dark mode

Leveraging OLED displays in dark mode proven to be the most energy-saving solution Samsung Display announced today that its OLED laptops are up to 25 percent more energy efficient in dark mode compared to light mode. The company tested its OLED laptops’ battery life using the industry-standard MobileMark 2018* and found that battery life averaged 11 hours in dark mode and 9.9 hours in light mode. By reducing the On Pixel Ratio, or the ratio of working pixels to total display pixels, dark mode was shown to cut down display energy consumption by about 25 percent. Since screens are one of the most significant contributors to battery drain, as a result, Samsung OLED laptops were found to give users an additional hour of power, compared to LCD laptops. “Low energy technology is vital for improving the portability of mobile devices like smartphones and laptops,” says Baek Jeeho, vice president of Samsung Display. “The combination of OLED screens and dark mode is clearly proven to be the best solution. Dark mode also reduces blue light significantly, which is beneficial to users’…
