The new generation Samsung QD-OLED screen uses a special triangular pixel structure, which may cause unwanted side effects in image color. However, the manufacturer claims that the problem is absolutely insignificant in the vast majority of cases.
The first to notice this phenomenon was the German network magazine Heise.de , testing the QD-OLED monitor . Its experts found that the triangular pixel structure causes color artifacts along the edges of objects that are noticeable at close range. An example is given below.
“In contrast to the typical linear RGB pattern in QD-OLED screens , we have applied a new proprietary sub-pixel arrangement to optimize color reproduction and HDR display ,” Samsung said .

The phenomenon in question is also present in conventional RGB linear order screens , but it is more pronounced in more advanced high contrast, wide color gamut counterparts such as QD-OLED .

“We are confident that this phenomenon is not a significant problem in the vast majority of cases, and QD-OLED screens represent the best solution in terms of realistic color reproduction and HDR display quality in both movies and video games,” Samsung said.
