Samsung’s new 120Hz OLED display for laptops could be used in Galaxy Book 3 Ultra


Last updated: January 24th, 2023 at 04:12 UTC+01:00

Samsung Display has unveiled a new OLED panel for laptops. It measures 16 inches diagonally, has a 3K resolution with a 16:10 aspect ratio, and features a 120Hz refresh rate. The company claims that it is the world’s first laptop OLED panel with an integrated touchscreen. It revealed that the panel would be used in Samsung’s next-generation Galaxy Book.

The South Korean display manufacturing firm said that integrating a touchscreen panel into the display reduces the overall thickness and complexity of the screen. It is also better for the environment as it doesn’t need an additional plastic film for the separate touchscreen layer. In 2010, the company introduced the world’s first touchscreen-integrated OLED panel for smartphones, which was used in the original Galaxy S.

While the company didn’t explicitly mention which Galaxy Book will use this new 16-inch OLED panel, it sits well with the Galaxy Book 3 Ultra whose specifications were leaked a few days ago. Samsung Display plans to develop more large-sized OCTA (On-Cell Touch AMOLED) panels for laptops because more laptop brands are equipping newer models with OLED panels.

Hojung Lee, Head of Product Planning Team for Small and Medium-sized Display Division at Samsung Display, said, “The difficulty level of the touch-integrated technology surges greatly as the display area increases, which leads to the increased number of touch sensors required. We were able to achieve the natural feel and touch responsiveness for larger displays through the development of new materials and process technologies.
