At the beginning of March, Sony presented its upcoming range of new televisions. Like last year, Sony uses QD OLED screens from Samsung Displays for its premium Bravia XR-A95L series with 4K resolution. This puts these televisions in direct competition with most of the other manufacturers, who mostly equip their flagships with META-OLED panels from LG Displays.
Samsung’s Quantum Dot OLED is basically a combination of a layer of blue OLED pixels overlaid with red and green nanocrystals, a technique that Samsung has long practiced in its QD LCD screens. The result is an OLED screen that shines not only with deep black, but also with great brightness and intense colors.
Because the light is only generated by RGB pixels and no additional white is added for bright areas, colors do not fade even at maximum brightness, but remain intense. Even with last year’s model, we measured a color space that went well beyond the DCI-P3 color space, which is important for HDR. In addition, the panel reflects significantly less than conventional OLEDs at vertical viewing angles.
