The era of LCDs is almost over as Samsung Display will stop production at the end of the year. Instead, Samsung will focus on OLED technology. That is a little odd because their current QLEDs use LCD panels behind the quantum dot layer.
From The Verge:
Last October Samsung Display announced a five-year 13.1 trillion won (around $10.7 billion) investment in quantum dot technology for its upcoming TVs, as it shifts production away from LCDs. However, Samsung’s existing quantum dot or QLED TVs still use LCD panels behind their quantum dot layer. Samsung is also working on developing self-emissive quantum-dot diodes, which would remove the need for a separate layer.
Having both an LCD monitor and two QLED TVs, I can see the future behind QLED technology. But, when compared to OLEDs and the rapid improvements, year-over-year LG is making, I bet that my next display will be OLED.
But what about MicroLED technology? Anyone know?
