Having recently announced plans to release more than 40 million TVs by the end of 2023, Samsung is now aiming to compete with its competition in the television industry. The company’s new Tizen platform has been designed to provide users with a range of features, including smart home capabilities. In addition, QD-OLED panels have been developed to deliver brighter displays than their W-OLED counterparts.
Among the new television technologies this year, QD-OLED panels have made a splash. Sony has already released its first QD-OLED displays, and Samsung Electronics is getting ready to release its own.
The technology combines Quantum Dots with OLED panels to create a new type of display. Quantum dots are tiny nanoparticles that emit light in red, green, and blue. They are incorporated into the panels, allowing for deeper and more accurate colors. They are also known for their superior brightness.
QD-OLED panels are being manufactured by Samsung Display, the company’s display division. The company plans to increase QD-OLED production, and is also working on rollable display panels.
In the past, QD-OLED panels were only available in 55-inch sizes. However, this year, Samsung is planning to release 49-inch and 77-inch QD-OLED panels, and is aiming for production of 2.4 million QD-OLED panels in 2023. The company’s QD-OLED fab is capable of producing 30,000 8.5 Gen substrates per month. It is also working on a thinner QD-OLED panel.
Quantum dots are known for their wide color gamut and better brightness. The company’s QD-OLED panels are expected to have better color reproduction and better contrast ratios than traditional OLED panels. They will also feature extended HDR.
The cost of making QD-OLED panels is high, so Samsung has been working to improve the efficiency of its production. As a result, the company is able to produce QD-OLED panels at a cheaper price. In the future, QD-OLED panels will be used in 8K TVs and high-resolution monitors.
The company is still in the early stages of optimizing its QD-OLED production, and isn’t planning to invest in new manufacturing equipment. However, it’s working on ways to reduce TAKT time, which is the time it takes to manufacture a QD-OLED panel. In addition, Samsung Display is working on ways to increase the efficiency of QD-OLED production, so it’s expected that the yield will reach 85%.
Although the company is still in the early stages of optimising its production, Samsung is moving forward with QD-OLED technology, and should start to produce cheaper QD-OLED panels in the next few years.
QD-OLEDs are brighter than LG’s W-OLEDs
Compared to LG’s W-OLED panels, Samsung’s QD-OLEDs are generally brighter, more color accurate, and offer a better color volume. However, they also have some limitations that will need to be addressed in future iterations.
Samsung’s QD-OLEDs use quantum dots, which are tiny nanoparticles that absorb light from any light source. The quantum dots then create red and green colors. The dots are as small as 7nm. The dots are used in conjunction with organic light-emitting diodes, or OLEDs, to produce a brighter and more vivid image.
The QD-OLED panels are also more efficient than the standard OLEDs. They use only a single glass substrate, which allows for a higher yield of 80%. That allows the panel to produce more uniform brightness, and better viewing angles. They also feature better burn-in resistance and a wider color gamut.
The panels can reach up to 1,000 nits when used in the highest brightness setting. This is enough to produce a full screen HDR display, but it may not be as bright as LG’s W-OLED panels, which are capable of up to 2,000 nits on some models.
The QD-OLED panels also have a wider color gamut and wider viewing angles. This means that even small text will be more visible on the panel than on LG’s W-OLED panels.
Unlike LG’s W-OLED, Samsung’s QD-OLEDs do not use a polarization layer. This allows the panel to retain 80% of the brightness when viewed from the sides. It also means that the panel can be thinner.
While LG’s W-OLED panels have better indirect lighting mitigation capabilities, they also suffer from weak brightness. The brightness of a QD-OLED panel can be significantly higher than a W-OLED panel, allowing for better local contrast capabilities. It can also produce more consistent illumination than an LED screen.
However, the QD-OLED panel may have hot pixels, which may cause retention of color for an extended period of time. This can result in visual artifacts that don’t bother most users.
LG’s W-OLED panels are not as bright as QD-OLED panels, but they are still brighter than most LCDs. They also have a glossy finish, which helps to prevent reflections.
Tizen platform has been updated to compete with its competitors
During last year’s SDC 21 conference, Samsung unveiled a strategy to license its Tizen software platform to third-party manufacturers. This will expand the reach of the Tizen ecosystem. As part of this strategy, Samsung has signed licensing agreements with three TV makers, namely Bauhn, HKC, and Tempo.
The Tizen platform is a Linux-based operating system that is hosted by the Linux Foundation. It combines open source technologies with a standards-based HTML5 environment. This combination provides developers with a platform that can power cross-platform mobile applications. This technology also has the added benefit of being able to run on a variety of devices, including Smart TVs.
While the Tizen OS has been available in Samsung Smart TVs for some time, it hasn’t been widely available. In fact, there have only been a handful of models available so far. Samsung says that its latest Tizen-powered TVs will be available in other countries by the fourth quarter of 2022.
While the Tizen OS is not as widely accepted as Google’s Android, it does offer some of the same functionality. For example, all Tizen TVs will be able to access Samsung’s virtual assistant Bixby. It will also allow manufacturers to brand their TV experience.
There are other open-source TV operating systems such as the Roku TV OS and Amazon’s Fire OS. But Samsung is the first to license its Tizen OS to third-party makers. This move will help boost global competition in the TV OS space.
Samsung also has the advantage of having some of the best hardware and a vast retail network. It’s also a big believer in the concept of a’smart home’. This means that it routinely deploys smart features on its devices. For example, Tizen-powered TVs can control lighting and check energy consumption. They can also turn down radiators. In fact, all Tizen-powered TVs will also be able to access Samsung’s voice-based virtual assistant, Bixby.
Samsung’s Tizen OS is a great way to meet the demands of TV manufacturers. It is also Internet of Things ready, which means that TVs can interact with other IoT devices.
Shipping more than 40 million TVs in 2023
Despite recent reports of an impending global economic slowdown, Samsung remains optimistic and has set its sights on shipping more than 40 million Samsung led TVs in 2023. Samsung’s TVs are mainly known for their LED models, but the manufacturer has recently introduced Neo QLED TVs, which combine a quantum dot layer with a mini LED backlighting system. The Neo QLED TVs provide bright, colorful images, and have received excellent reviews.
Samsung’s TVs also feature new gaming features, including the all-new Gaming Hub. The Neural Quantum Processor draws on multiple neural networks to enhance the content. This new technology ensures that content is optimized for the user’s preferences.
In addition to Samsung’s premium models, the company has also introduced a number of new mini LED TVs. These include the AU8000, which is an entry-level model. They are also available in the QN line, which is labeled with “QN” in the model name. These models are geared towards gamers and feature HDMI 2.1 bandwidth on all ports, along with support for HDR10+.
Samsung’s TVs can provide good to excellent picture quality, but they can be costly compared to competing brands. That being said, they are among the best TVs for gaming. This year, Samsung is also focusing on improving its software, which powers its smart TVs. In order to boost sales, the company ran an “Discover Samsung” promotion in September. This promotion offered discounts of up to $1,700 off various Neo QLED models. These promotions are aimed at stealing the thunder of Black Friday.
In 2023, the company plans to ship 39 million LCD models, and 1.5 million quantum dot OLED (QD-OLED) models. It has also opted to focus on diversified LCD panel supply, and will rely on manufacturers like LG Display, HKC, and BOE for LCD panels. However, Samsung’s LCD panel shipments will still be dominated by LG Display.
Samsung has also shifted its focus to improving its smart TV software, which will help it continue to lead the television market. In addition to its latest model, the QN90A, the company will introduce a new line of QLED TVs in 2021.
