Samsung announces it now has OLED panels for gaming laptops. The company says the new panels offer 1.5x better blur length than conventional LCD panels. The new OLED panel offers a moving picture response time of under 15.4ms and a blur length of under 1.4mm. Samsung says typical LCD-based laptops with identical specs have a moving picture response time of 26.4ms and a blur length of up to 2.1mm.

The OLED panel is used by Samsung's own Galaxy Book Pro and the Galaxy Book Pro 360.
Samsung Display has announced that the world's leading certification company SGS certified its laptop OLED for gaming performance, which is featured in Samsung Electronics' latest laptop Galaxy Book Pro and Galaxy Book Pro 360.

According to SGS's test results, the new Samsung Display OLED showed the blur length below 1.4mm and the moving picture response time below 15.4ms, both of which are crucial to enjoying dynamic and fast-paced action games. An LCD laptop with identical specs showed the maximum 2.1mm blur length and the 26.4ms moving picture response time. Its HDR contrast ratio, which quantifies the sharpness and the depth of an image, resulted in over 1,000,000:1.

According to Samsung Display, fast-paced video games that require higher performance often suffer degradations in image quality when played on a display with a long blur length, which could harm user experience. OLED has a very wide range of contrast thus offers more immersive gaming experience for consumers who favor dynamic, flamboyant games, Samsung Display says.

The new Samsung Display OLED for laptop is also certified for cinematic experience with its wide color gamut (120% of DCI-P3) and its low-luminance expression capability below 0.0005 nits.

"As people spend more time home, laptop has become the go-to device not only for web-surfing and word-processing but also for watching movies and sports game and playing video games," Choi Soon-ho, director at Samsung Display said. "OLED is the very display that could meet consumers' various needs."
