According to some new information from Korea, Samsung is developing a 1,000 PPI (Pixels Per Inch) OLED display for smartphones. This report comes from TheElec, and it claims that the display should be ready by 2024.
Samsung is allegedly planning to deliver a 1,000 PPI display in 2024
Samsung is already a leader in the OLED display market, and that won’t change anytime soon, it seems. Samsung is looking to push up the ante even more with this 1,000 PPI panel for mobile devices. Truth be said, the source doesn’t exactly highlight this display is for smartphones, but that’s what it seems like.
What’s interesting here, is that Samsung is said to be developing new TFT (Thin-Film Transistor) technology for OLED panels. The company is doing this to be able to achieve 1,000 PPI density.
OLED displays don’t exactly use a TFT backplane, so Samsung is looking to adapt, and create something completely new. This new TFT technology for OLED display could have several benefits, actually.
In addition to enabling the company to reach 1,000 PPI, it is also expected to be considerably faster than current solutions. To be exact, it’s expected to be ten times faster, which is staggering. Those are some huge expectations.
Such a display will be more power efficient, amongst other things
This new display is also expected to be more power efficient than any other display from the company at the moment. The benefits don’t end there, as this panel is supposed to be cheaper to purchase as well.
Cramming 1,000 PPI inside a display for mobile devices could be huge. It could benefit not only smartphones, but various other devices. The first device that came to mind is a VR headset, though Samsung isn’t exactly too involved in that at the moment. It remains to be seen what will such a display be used for, but it’s possible it will be utilized in various different devices, which belong in different categories.
