Samsung is set to end all LCD production at its facilities in South Korea and China by the end of this year, due to oversupply and a sharp decline in demand for LCD panels. According to a new report from MyDrivers, the company is shifting its focus from LCDs to QD-OLED technology, which is said to have an improved lifespan of up to 1 million hours. The next-generation panels will be made using iridium phosphide, instead of toxic cadmium.
QD-OLED displays also offer other advantages over OLED screens, including a wider color gamut and improved brightness. Since the technology mixes OLED with quantum dots, the OLED within the panel will only emit one color, helping reduce production costs significantly. The next-generation QD-OLED displays will also be less susceptible to burn-in than current-gen OLED displays.
