QD still has LCD in it. These articles seems to imply the "LCD" is nearing its end. NO infact these plants are being upgraded. IDK why people seems to be disconnected on the true meaning of quantum dot and LCD, is there really a confusion between these two?

In smart TV sector, LCD demand is still high because, OLED TVs are way too expensive.Countries with local currencies USD and Euro can afford OLED TVs but, rest of the world cannot give those prices due to low currency rates. No point in Samsung's decision unless they drop to LCD TV prices swiftly.

the phone screen, tab screen, large size TV can be made of OLED panel. I thought there should be the OLED PC Monitors available too.

The black color on OLED screen are impressive. Phones users of the current generation had all agreed OLED screen produces better colors. Apple had given the demonstration in its top and general line of IPhone models.

the spelling of the QLED was made to look very similar to that of OLED. but the QLED is never the true OLED. QLED is still of the LCD type, that relies on a backlight source.

Samsung marketing I known, they discontinuing something because the tech giant will introduce something that surpass new LCD soon. Samsung will marketing their current display tech is the latest technology and they stop producing the LCD will say it is previous generation technology. By this logic the new LCD will be underestimate by them.

When microLED drops, all of you will finally shut up and see the true best display.

When you have 500 dimming regions (current Samsung flagship) and a small "Star" in a black background. The region behind the star is much bigger than the star. So they have to keep the brightness all the way down to avoid a huge blooming.

Black crushing is no longer an issue with OLEDs. Google it for the 2019 LG oleds such as the C9.

As for the excellent for an LCD screen XDR Pro display search for this on youtube: Apple Pro Display XDR Review (vs Sony Reference Monitor)

There's a reason OLEDs are voted TV's of the year.

The real kicker is that LCD is not flexible nor rollable yet OLED is and this example shows the actual winner.

OLED MASTER RACE, 31 Mar 2020OLED is superior and just stop arguingThere's a reason OLED panels aren't used a lot in laptops. Even gaming laptops with 240Hz refresh rate and above still uses 1080p LCD screens, as well as graphics design laptops. Just admit it, none is superior to each other.

  • LilPhone

To those saying OLED are always superior, it's not true.

LCD screen has no screen burn-in and generates less heat (not energy). It's also better for those with sensitive eyes as it has higher or no PWM flicker.

There are good LCD screens such as the ones in Apple's Macbooks.

But OLED panels can be brighter and has better viewing angles. They're also more efficient as well, despite generating more heat.

Most laptops screen are not OLED displays. They are more suitable for phones.

The answer to both LCD and OLED panels is it depends. A high-resolution or well-calibrated LCD panel can beat an OLED panel.
