What would you prefer in your next gaming laptop? An OLED panel with excellent contrast and deep black levels. Or a different display technology that can surpass 60Hz? Well, soon you won’t have to choose.
Samsung Display has announced plans to manufacture “the world’s first” 90Hz OLED panels. Destined for laptops and notebooks. The company will start producing 14-inch displays in March. For now, it’s not clear if that means one particular resolution and aspect ratio or multiple offerings meant for different laptop designs.
For video game enthusiasts. OLED to be the king of display technology, besting anything that Mini-LED and MicroLED can produce. A 60Hz refresh rate is fine for some games, but the industry is slowly moving towards faster frequencies. Many PC gamers already own 120Hz or 144Hz monitors. For instance, that can give them an edge in titles such as Valorant.
While inferior, 90Hz should provide a decent on-the-go gaming experience. We’ve seen plenty of mainstream smartphones, after all, ship with 120Hz panels, such as last year’s Samsung Galaxy S20 and OnePlus 8T. The latter has merely confirmed that “several global IT companies” will release laptops with 90Hz OLED screens “this year.”
