SAMSUNG IS PLANNING TO LAUNCH 4K OLED DISPLAY SPORTING LAPTOPS AT CES 2019
The annual consumer tech extravaganza, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), is scheduled to take place in Las Vegas, USA, from 8-11 Jan 2019. With still a month to go, some companies have already started teasing what they would be announcing at CES 2019.
Korean giant Samsung is expected to showcase its new type of notebook display — a 4K OLED panel — for 13.3-inch, 14-inch and 15.6-inch laptop models. The OLED panels are expected to have considerable advantages over the comparable LCD panel displays, but the prices for the same would also be at a significant premium.
According to a report in GizChina, the reported price of a 2K to 4K OLED screen could be between $59 to $60 higher than a comparable LCD panel. Samsung made 4K OLED laptops may get a price advantage over other brands, as Samsung makes its displays in-house. This new display is expected to have low blue light, wider viewing angles and a slim profile as compared to their LCD counterparts.
But considering Samsung isn’t really a leader when it comes to laptop sales, it will have to get other brand partners on board to truly make 4K OLED panels mainstream.
A report in NotebookCheck speculates that Samsung is in talks with HP, Lenovo and Dell to incorporate this tech on their laptops.
For all we know, OLED laptops could be a trend to look out for at the next edition of CES.
