It looks like Samsung has started supplying its OLED display panels to laptop makers. Lenovo has launched the Windows 10-based Thinkpad X1 Yoga, which is the first convertible laptop to use an OLED display, and costs upwards of $1449. The Chinese PC manufacturer has mentioned that it is sourcing display panels from Samsung for this convertible, and it makes sense as it is the market leader in OLED technology.
This laptop comes in three display variants; a 14-inch OLED display with a resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 pixels, a 14-inch QHD IPS LCD display, and a 14-inch 1080p IPS LCD display. Since OLED display panels have deep blacks, infinite contrast, and wide viewing angles, we guess it would be a treat to watch videos on the Thinkpad X1 Yoga. Other features include an Intel Skylake-U series processor, 16GB RAM, 1TB PCIe NVMe SSD, an active stylus, spill-resistant keys, a fingerprint sensor, USB 3.0 ports, and even optional 4G LTE connectivity.
Since the South Korean electronics giant is supplying OLED panels to third-party PC makers, it is possible that Samsung might announce its own ATIV series laptop with a Super AMOLED display during the upcoming CES 2016. However, Samsung is pushing Quantum Dot technology instead of OLED into its TV units, and that’s quite surprising.
