Importantly, Samsung Show’s new panel seems to attain this with out sacrificing the present advantages of OLED shows. These embrace pure blacks the place no mild is being emitted in any respect, to not point out glorious viewing angles in comparison with typical LCD TVs.

An vital caveat is that each one of those comparisons have been made with LG’s 2021 flagship, which is because of be outdated this 12 months when it releases a brand new lineup of OLED TVs.

Whether or not that’s sufficient to stay aggressive with Samsung’s new panels stays to be seen.

We’ll nonetheless have to attend for shopper TVs to really make it to market utilizing each panels earlier than we might be utterly positive of those readings, however it’s wanting like a powerful set of outcomes for Samsung Show’s newest expertise. And Samsung’s show arm produces panels for a wide range of firms, so it gained’t simply be Samsung’s personal TVs that profit.

The query nonetheless stays when, precisely, Samsung Show’s new panels will really go on sale.
