One of the biggest developments in OLED displays in the last couple of years is the tandem OLED technology, which uses two layers of OLED panels to offer higher brightness and increased longevity. Honor’s Magic 6 Ultimate was the first mass-market device to offer an OLED display with this technology. However, tandem OLED was popularised by the recently launched iPad Pro, the first tablet to use a screen with this tech.

Currently, three companies are mass producing OLED displays with the tandem OLED tech, BOE, LG Display, and Samsung Display. While BOE is making this type of screen for phones, LG Display and Samsung Display are making it for tablets, namely, the iPad Pro. Well, LG Display has now started mass manufacturing OLED displays with the tandem OLED technology for laptops as well, leaving BOE and Samsung Display behind.

LG starts mass manufacturing tandem OLED displays for laptops

LG Display has announced that it has started the mass production of OLED displays with tandem OLED technology for laptops. According to the company, the first tandem OLED panel for laptops that it is mass producing is a 13-inch unit with 2,880 x 1,800 pixels resolution, touch functionality, and 100% coverage of the DCI-P3 color gamut.

LG says that it offers three times higher brightness and two times better durability than conventional single-layer OLED displays for laptops while consuming a 40% lower amount of power and being 40% thinner and 28% lighter than typical OLED screens for laptops today. Those are very impressive figures and something to look forward to.

Next Dell XPS 13 will be the first laptop with LG's tandem OLED panel

According to LG Display, Dell’s next XPS 13 model will be the first laptop to use LG’s tandem OLED panel and should be the first laptop in the world to feature a tandem OLED screen. However, the display in Dell's upcoming XPS 13 laptop will have a higher resolution than the panel that LG Display has started mass manufacturing. LG Display will supply around 100,000 units of tandem OLED panels to Dell in the initial stage.

With the latest development, LG Display is leaving Samsung Display behind in the tandem OLED market. However, Samsung Display has the upper hand in the OLED market for monitors, as the majority of (gaming) monitors with OLED displays nowadays use Samsung Display’s QD-OLED panels. Samsung is also giving a tough fight to LG when it comes to OLED TVs with the company’s QD-OLED TVs, such as the S95D.
