Expect more laptops with OLED displays in 2021. Samsung Display plans on boosting its production to include 10 new OLED panels, specifically designed for PC notebooks.
The company announced the news, citing the surging demand for laptops during the COVID-19 pandemic. “We aim to increase our laptop OLED presence with greater consumer value, size diversity and technological innovation,” said Samsung Display President Sung-chul Kim.
According to the manufacturer, many of the top IT companies are already buying up laptops with OLED 4K displays. So in response, Samsung Display plans on increasing its production while also expanding into more OLED laptop displays at 1440p and 1080p resolutions.
“The expanded OLED lineup will feature panel sizes that include 13.4-inch, 14-inch, and 16-inch screens,” the company added. “These laptop displays will follow in the footsteps of the 13.3-inch and 15.6-inch UHD (4K) OLED models successfully launched in late 2019, as well as the 13.3 FHD (1080p) and the 13.5 QHD (1440p) OLED models that rolled out last year.”
The company is so bullish on the demand that it’s forecasting a 500% increase in annual sales for OLED laptop panels. However, the big question is how much the PCs will cost. Currently, OLED displays are usually found on premium laptops that start at $1,500 and can easily scale up to over $3,000. But in return, the panels are capable of displaying more vivid colors and deeper blacks, at low power levels.
In the meantime, PC vendors are preparing to unveil new models at next week’s CES. So there’s a good chance a number of laptops packing OLED panels will be on display. Stay tuned for our coverage.
