Samsung Display Developing Thinner, Rollable QD-OLED Panels

Samsung Display is developing flexible, rollable displays that are thinner than smartphone screens. It may be the next big innovation for VR headsets and gaming in particular.

Samsung Display has been developing thinner, rollable QD-OLED panels. The company is working on a flexible display that can be rolled up like a scroll and will also have an improved power efficiency level.


LG was the first to wow the display market with its rollable OLED TVs, but it won’t be the only manufacturer to provide such adaptable TVs. Samsung has begun developing a more advanced version of its QD-OLED panel that should enable the same type of products, one that does away with the glass substrate layer for QD color conversion, allowing for not only a thinner panel, but one that is malleable enough to be rollable, according to South Korean outlet TheElec. There’s no word on when these panels will be ready, but Samsung’s current-generation QD-OLED displays, which are apparently more difficult to build than LG’s W-OLED (white OLED) panels, are available in a number of monitors, including Dell and Alienware’s curved AW3423DW ($1,299). Samsung’s QD-OLED TVs, which come in two sizes ($2,999 for the 65-inch model and $2,199.99 for the 55-inch model), started delivering this month as well.

Samsung Display has begun work on a smaller QD-OLED screen (TheElec)

TheElec has heard that Samsung Display is working on a smaller version of their quantum dot (QD)-OLED screen. According to reports, the goal is to minimize the number of glass substrates used from two to one. According to them, if the South Korean display panel succeeds, the next QD-OLED version will also be rollable.

The current iteration of the QD-OLED panel is made up of the following layers, starting from the bottom: glass substrate TFT, anode, emission layer, cathode, blue OLED encapsulation, filter, QD color conversion layer encapsulation, QD color conversion layer, QD color conversion layer glass substrate, QD color conversion layer encapsulation, QD color conversion layer, QD color conversion layer glass substrate.

The new initiative from Samsung Display aims to eliminate the QD color conversion layer glass substrate from the top. The business wants to print ink on top of the blue OLED encapsulation before using the QD color conversion encapsulation method. If it works, Samsung Display will be able to save money on materials and streamline the manufacturing process for QD-OLED panels.
