Philips is currently evaluating Samsung Display's QD-OLED panel and the TV maker could become the third brand after Samsung and Sony to offer QD-OLED TVs.
Danny Tack, Senior Director of Product Strategy and Planning at TP Vision that is responsible for Philips TVs in Europe, confirmed as much in an interview with HDTVTest.
- "We also are exploring the quantum dot OLED panel from Samsung. We also have prototypes in-house in Gent in our innovation center and we are comparing the both with each other looking through strengths and weaknesses," Danny Tack told HDTVTest.
He said that a decision about whether to launch QD-OLED TVs will be made later. Philips is planing to unveil part of its 2023 TV line-up in February.
A potential QD-OLED TV would be in addition to Philips' OLED TVs based on LG Display's WOLED panel type. Danny Tack hinted that next year's WOLED-based TVs will deliver higher brightness – possibly through the use of micro lenses.
At this time, only Samsung and Sony offer QD-OLED TVs and only in 55 and 65 inches. A 77-inch QD-OLED panel is expected to become available next year.
