If you’ve ever wondered what makes OLED panels so special, this post will attempt to answer all of your questions.

Let’s start with a discussion about how OLED technology works. OLED panels are made from organic carbon-based materials that can emit light when electricity flows through them. Unlike LCD panels that require a backlight and filters, OLED screens are more efficient, easier to make, and thinner in design. The image quality on OLEDs is superb; imagine a screen with brilliant colors, fast response rates, and wide viewing angles. OLEDs consist of a cathode (to inject electrons) and an anode (to remove them). Modern OLEDs have many layers but the principal format of the technology works the same way.

Today, the leading AMOLED producer is Samsung. They make over 200 million displays each year and that number is constantly increasing. Samsung builds small displays between the sizes of 5 and 10 inches. These are mostly used for mobile phones and tablets. LG is also a major manufacturer of OLED displays. They mainly focus on building larger displays between the sizes of 55-77 inches.

Both LG and Samsung produce flexible OLED panels used in a wide span of devices. Both companies are expected to expand production capacity and introduce new products of unique form factors that will utilize these new displays.

So to recap, OLED offers the following advantages:

  • Lower power consumption
  • Better picture quality
  • Better durability
  • Lighter Weight
  • Decreasing price

Of course, all of these advantages do not come without drawbacks. The biggest problem faced by OLED right now is the material they use to produce the color blue. It degrades much faster than the other hues which eventually throws off the color balance and reduces the overall brightness of the display.
