November 22nd, 2022 at 1:41 p.m. by Andreas Link – Devices with QD-OLED panels could also come from the Philips brand in 2023, which now belongs to the Chinese supplier TP Vision.
QD OLED panels from Samsung in televisions and monitors are currently still rare, expensive and often not even available. Only two models are listed in Germany – the Dell Alienware AW3423DW and the Samsung Odyssey OLED G8 G85SB. The situation is somewhat better for televisions, but apart from Samsung, initially only Sony opted for the new technology. And with the increasing price pressure from LG, it shouldn’t get any easier.
All the better that another partner from Samsung wants to bring QD-OLED devices onto the market. According to a report by HDTVTest, the owners of the Philips brand want to be on Samsung’s customer list. Senior Director of Product Strategy & Planning at TP Vision, Danny Tack, emphasizes that tests are currently being carried out and that QD-OLED is also directly compared to LG’s WRGB. Both technologies differ in structure, although they are OLED panels. LG uses four subpixels – one each for the three colors red, green and blue and a white pixel for a brightness boost. Samsung uses three blue sub-pixels in a different arrangement, which produce red and green through a color filter layer. This is exactly what you will see at the Innovation Center.
Whether QD-OLED devices will come from Philips, nobody wanted to make a final decision yet. The economic factor must also be taken into account: LG can apparently offer its WRGB panels more cheaply, which is then also reflected in a lower product price. In addition, QD-OLED is in the first generation since the market launch. Traditionally, the CES in Las Vegas in January is the scene for new announcements by TV and mini goal manufacturers – so you don’t have to wait too long.
