QD-OLED televisions should soon benefit from new diagonals. We learn that Samsung Display would work in particular on the delivery of 77 and 49 inch panels from next year.
Introduced at the beginning of the year on some Samsung and Sony television models, but also on some monitors such as Alienware, QD-OLED display technology is here to stay. We learned this week from DSCC (which specializes in display issues), that Samsung Display is preparing for the mass production of new 77 and 49-inch diagonals to supplement the current production of 55 and 65-inch QD-OLED panels. “Samsung Display plans to add 49-inch and 77-inch products next year to bolster its QD-OLED portfolio“, assures DSCC, whose words are relayed to us by the Korean site Chosun Biz.
These two new sizes of QD-OLED panels would arrive on the market next year and could thus be integrated into future television models during 2023. As FlatPanelsHD points out, no details are yet given on the definition planned for these 77 and 49 inch panels, but it’s a safe bet that we are talking about Ultra HD panels.
QD-OLED, prices soon to be lowered?
According to the specialized site, Samsung Display currently produces 30,000 8.5G substrates each month, from which it can cut around 1.8 million 55- and 65-inch QD-OLED panels per year. Even better, the manufacturer would benefit from a 100% return on this production and would succeed in selling all of the cut panels. This should allow Samsung Display to gradually lower its production costs. Potentially good news for the consumer who could ultimately see the price of QD-OLED technology drop. Currently, the latter remains very expensive: count for example around 2500 euros for the new 55-inch Samsung S95B television, the brand’s first QD-OLED model.
As indicated above, Samsung and Sony are currently the only television manufacturers to use QD-OLED technology in their 2022 ranges. We nevertheless learn that Panasonic is considering its adoption… unlike TCL. The Chinese manufacturer has confirmed to FlatPanelsHD that it is no longer betting on the launch of QD-OLED models based on Samsung panels.
