Test production QD-OLED by Samsung
Samsung has missed the ‘oled-boot’ and is doing everything it can to make the next generation displays to be on board, or even to sail ahead. The Korean manufacturer is already working on microled a technique in which minuscule LEDs form the pixels. In addition, Samsung is working on QD-OLED, which is actually a combination of a quantum dot filter and oled.
The Korean ETNews now reports Samsung to develop collaboration with Canon and Kateeva on production equipment with which OLED displays with a quantum dot filter can be produced. They would strive for a 8th generation production line, with which panels of 55-inch and 65-inch can be produced.
Furthermore, according to the report, Samsung would opt for blue oled with quantum dots in the red and green color filters. This avoids the Korean manufacturer the patents that LG has and the company could achieve a higher brightness and a larger color range. The first production pilot must take place in the second half of 2019, after which it will be determined whether and how mass production will take place.
