OLED displays provide better image quality, a low response time, low power consumption and a thinner design. While OLEDs are already very popular in smartphones and TVs, burn-in challenges and high production costs have resulted in slower adoption in the laptop market.
In 2019 all that changed as Samsung Display started producing 15.6" 4K AMOLED displays for the laptop market, and several leading makers (including HP, Lenovo and Dell) started to offer high-end OLED laptops. For more information and our OLED laptop news coverage, click here.
