The first commercial QD-OLED screen is about to go on sale in the form of the Samsung S95B and Sony A95K models . But Samsung doesn’t intend to stop there and has already begun work on a flexible version that could be used to produce a rollable TV like the LG OLED R , Korean sources say.
Currently, two glass substrates are used in the QD-OLED panel – the first for the TFT layer and the second for the QD layer . The goal of the developers is to remove the second one and replace it with an analogue made by inkjet printing. If successful, Samsung will not only get a flexible screen, but will also save on materials and simplify the manufacturing process, which is currently more complex than rival LG ‘s.
Recall that the first rollable TV was introduced by LG in 2019. The company called its release “a turning point in the history of the industry”, but later there were reports that he was a fiasco in the market due to exorbitant prices.
