77-inch QD-OLED TVs are coming soon. Samsung Display, the panel manufacturer, has officially unveiled a 77-inch panel as the first expansion of the QD-OLED line-up.
2022 has so far given us the first 55- and 65-inch QD-OLED TVs from Samsung and Sony and the first 34-inch QD-OLED monitor from Dell. All QD-OLED panels are produced by Samsung Display so with a 77-inch panel now a reality expect QD-OLED TVs to grow in size in the near future.
The 77-inch QD-OLED panel had been rumored for a while and Samsung Display officially unveiled it late last month at the International Meeting on Information Display (IMID 2022), which is an industry show in Busan, South Korea, as reported by multiple Korean newspapers.
No further details were provided but the panel most likely features 4K resolution.
We do not know what Samsung Electronics and Sony are planning to do but since neither manufacturer announced a 77-inch model at IFA 2022 last week we would expect the first 77-inch QD-OLED TVs to appear sometime in 2023 to challenge 77-inch WOLED from LG Display.
Samsung Display is rumored to also be working on a 49-inch QD-OLED panel but apparently this panel is intended for monitors.

At IMID 2022, Samsung Display also showcased new flexible OLED panels intended for handheld and mobile devices.
- "We exhibited a laptop-style ‘Flex Note’, including the ‘Flex S’, which folds in and out, and the ‘Flex G’, which folds in twice. OLEDs were also introduced and caught the attention of youth visitors," a Samsung Display official told Ngetnews.
