LG, Samsung to mass produce Quantum Dot displays in the second half of 2014

Every year, manufacturers develop and adopt new technologies to improve the overall efficiency of their products. The same concept applies when it comes to display technology and over the past few years, well known manufacturers have integrated better and power efficient displays on their smartphones and tablets.

Color reproduction, display clarity, pixel density all have improved over the past few years and even smartphones now boast of resolution as high as QHD i.e. 2,560 x 1,440. LG G3′s display panel can be said as one of the best displays for smartphones in the market and it is only a matter of time, other manufacturers like Samsung and Sony adopt a similar or even better display panel.

While displays today are mostly OLED panels, according to Korean Media, well known manufacturers like LG and Samsung are looking to integrate Quantum Dot displays on their upcoming devices.

Quantum Dot display is said to be the next generation display technology which offers a lot of improvements over the traditional OLED displays. This particular technology has been in the market for some years now and many existing manufacturers have already considered integrating these displays onto their devices. However, several challenges like high cost and production constraints have prevented these manufacturers from mass producing QD displays.

But it seems like these challenges have been overcome as the source states that LG as well as Samsung is planning to mass produce Quantum Dot displays in the second half of 2014. So, these displays could easily end up on the next flagship models from the company scheduled to release next year.

Quantum Dot displays have many advantages over the traditional display panels. For example, QD displays offer wider color range, higher brightness levels, better lifetime and low power consumption. So devices with QD displays will have better color reproduction at a reduced power consumption rate.

Some products in the market are already using this technology and Sony’s Triluminous displays can be said as the best example. Even Amazon’s Kindle Fire HDX 7 uses the same QD display.

While manufacturers are experimenting with flexible and foldable displays, Quantum Dot display technology too could make it to devices that are going to release in the next few months.

Surely, 2015 is going to be an exciting year when it comes to smartphone and tablet displays as new reports state that the first foldable tablet from Samsung will make it to the market next year along with advanced display technologies like Quantum Dot.
