LG Dismisses New Samsung QLED TV Technology: "It's Still An LCD Panel"

Why aren’t the more prominent display manufacturers jumping into OLED? LG’s vice chairman is wondering the same thing. Apparently, Samsung was crazy enough to suggest that QLED technology is the best anyone is going to get, declaring competing displays "meaningless."

As Samsung Electronics has released its new quantum-dot light-emitting diode (QLED) television, it has led to a confrontation for materials with LG Electronics, which is focusing on organic light-emitting diode (OLED) televisions, again. When Samsung Electronics showcased its new QLED TV, Kim Hyun-seok, president of Samsung Electronics' visual display (VD) business division said, "Further competition of visual quality is meaningless." In this regard, LG said, "The QLED is still a liquid crystal display (LCD) television." آ…"The only change in Samsung Electronics’ new product and previous one is luminance. In quantum dot, luminance can vary according to backlight. It is true that Samsung improved the efficiency of quantum dot, but it is a very small part of it. It is still a LCD panel."
