Reports: Samsung and Sony to launch QD-OLED TVs

17 Nov 2021 | Rasmus Larsen |

QD-OLED TVs are coming from not only Samsung Electronics but also Sony, according to multiple reports from Korea. Samsung will reportedly unveil its QD-OLED TVs at CES 2022.


Samsung Display, the panel manufacturer, detailed its QD-OLED technology in August so it is no big surprise to hear that Samsung Electronics is planning to launch the first QD-OLED TVs. Korean reports 'confirmed' it earlier this year and here is another one claiming that they will be unveiled at CES. - "Samsung Electronics is adding QD display (QD-OLED) TVs to its 2022 TV lineup. It will be supplied with QD panels from Samsung Display from December and will show QD TVs for the first time at CES2022 and 'First Look' to be held in January next year. The release date is targeted for the first quarter of 2022," IT Chosun reported earlier this month.

It is a little more surprising to hear that Sony will also launch QD-OLED TVs, according to multiple reports from Korea, even though it is not the first time we hear about Sony's (plus TCL and Panasonic's) interest in the technology. - "Sony, which conducted conformance tests until recently, decided that there is a possibility of commercializing QD-OLED, and decided to make QD-OLED TV. It is expected that Samsung Display's QD-OLED panel will be supplied to Sony as early as mid-November," Chosun Biz reported last month. - "Sony, the third-largest player in the TV industry, will also release their QD OLED TV models," Business Korea reported yesterday. - "(Samsung Electronics) will start mass production this month and supply it to Samsung Electronics and Sony. Samsung Electronics and Sony plan to make and release TVs with QD displays," ETnews reported earlier this month. Also read: What is QD-OLED? Samsung details its new TV display technology There is not much to go on here and it is not clear if Sony is planning to unveil QD-OLED TVs at CES 2022 or later, but if true it may signify that Sony will expand its line-up. For its current OLED TVs, Sony is sourcing panels from LG Display. Let's see what happens at CES 2022 in January. - Source: Chosun Biz, IT Chosun, BusinessKorea, ETnews
