    Samsung close to creating thinner and rollable QD-OLED TVs

    Samsung's foldable display technology might be coming to larger screens. Samsung Display is reportedly working on simplifying the production process of QD-OLED panels and making them thinner, which could pave the way for future rollable TVs.

    More specifically, Samsung Display is reportedly working on reducing the number of glass substrates in QD-OLED panels down to one (via The Elec).

    Achieving this would result in even thinner QD-OLED panels. It could also bring rollable QD-OLED TVs closer to reality, as using fewer glass substrates would allow for better flexibility.

    Perhaps more importantly for the company at this very moment, using a single glass substrate could ease up the QD-OLED production process and improve yield.

    Details are murky, but from what we can gather from industry reports, Samsung Display is looking to eliminate the need for the QD color conversion glass substrate. Doing so would reduce the number of glass substrates used in QD-OLED panels from two down to one.

    Using a single glass substrate instead of two would allow the company to reduce production costs and speed up the manufacturing process. And looking into the future, industry watchers speculate that the removal of the QD color conversion substrate could pave the way for rollable TV technology.

    As for standard, non-flexible panels, if Samsung achieves a 70% yield rate for QD-OLED this year, estimates say that the company could produce 880,000 smart TV panels and 440,000 panels destined for monitors.
