You’ve probably seen those early commercials for Samsung’s new QLED (Quantum-Dot-Array)-based OLED TVs touting the company’s “Tomorrow’s TV” technology. The commercials show dazzling examples of high-speed visuals on the TVs, but they don’t truly show you that they’re high-speed at all.
OLED displays are thinner, lighter, and more energy-efficient than LCDs, but they’re not always cost-effective at scale. That’s why technology companies are exploring a new display tech called Quantum Dot-Optic Liquid Crystal displays (QD-OLED), which are the same size and shape as OLED panels but use new fluorescent material to emit light.
As OLED displays become more popular, we’re about to see some interesting changes in the upcoming years. OLEDs are known for being flexible, which is why many phones, tablets, and laptops offer them. But one of the disadvantages of forgoing an OLED display is that the colors and black levels aren’t as accurate as of the QD-OLED displays that will soon be on the market. That’s why we’re going to take a look at the difference between QD-OLED and traditional OLED displays.
What is QD?
QD stands for Quantum-Dot, a display technology that’s been talked about lots lately. As described by the Oxford Dictionary, “the smallest unit of any display system that can be used to display a single bit of data.”
So, What Is a QD-OLED Display?
The QD-OLED display is a new type of display technology based on the QD-LCD technology used by Samsung. It is a super high-resolution display that uses a technology called Quantum Dot. The way the QD-LCD works is that particles of semiconductor material are scattered on a crystalline surface. The particles are the materials needed to create a light-emitting element that emits light in response to an electrical current. The display is typically referred to as a quantum dot.
QD-OLED displays, also known as quantum dot displays, are the next generation of displays that are becoming more and more popular. These displays use quantum dot technology to boost color, saturation, and brightness. And, since they are still the newest display technology, they are the most expensive.
Importance of QD-OLED Display
With QD-OLED display, Samsung implements an entirely new manufacturing process that allows for thinner and lighter display panels. This advance could help revolutionize the television and mobile phone industries by providing thinner, lighter, and more energy-efficient devices.
QD-OLED stands for Quantum Dot-Organic Light-Emitting Diode. QD-OLED displays are an alternative to OLED displays that use quantum dots to replace the traditional organic “pixels.” The benefit of QD-OLED is that it receives more accurate color reproduction due to the use of quantum dots, which are small semiconductors, rather than traditional OLED pixels, which are made of organic materials.
Difference between QD-OLED and traditional OLED displays
QD-OLED displays are one of the hottest new trends in display technology. However, with the growing use of these displays, the question of what distinguishes QD-OLED displays from traditional OLED displays is becoming more important. QD-OLED displays are a form of OLED displays that allow for QD pixels to be built into the display in a way that allows for QD-OLED monitors to be bigger than traditional OLED displays.
We all know OLED displays have taken over the smartphone market. Some of the latest Samsung Galaxy S8 and iPhone 8 models use OLED displays.
But what technically is an OLED display?
An OLED display is an electroluminescence display that is made out of organic materials that emit light when an electric current passes through them. There are two types of OLEDs. A QD-OLED display is a quantum dot-based display that uses quantum dots to create a more efficient display than traditional OLEDs. A traditional OLED display is made with a layer of organic electroluminescent material that emits light when an electric current passes through it, without a backlight.
The lack of clarity in QD-OLED displays is evident in the growing number of companies trying to capitalize on the technology. Samsung, LG, and Sony are just a few of the large companies trying to get a piece of this growing market. But the main reason that they are trying to get a piece of the market is that QD-OLED displays are valuable in terms of performance and application.
