The refresh rate refers to the number of times per second a display shows a new image. A higher refresh rate means smoother, more seamless movements on a display, but it also requires a higher graphics performance and power.

An OLED panel responds much faster than an LCD panel and can display a more natural-looking image with a lower refresh rate than an LCD panel.

Samsung Display said during tests its 90Hz OLED panel showed a blur length of 0.9mm, a 10 per cent improvement when compared to a 120Hz LCD panel’s blur length in video playback, reports Yonhap news agency.

The world’s largest smartphone panel maker is also a major supplier of OLED panels for global laptop manufacturers, including ASUS, Lenovo, Dell, HP and Samsung Electronics.

Samsung Display aims to ship about 6 million units of OLED panels this year.

Market researcher Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC) earlier predicted the global OLED notebook market to grow to 9.4 million units with $1.1 billion revenue in 2023. “We expect Samsung Display will be aggressive in OLED notebooks to try and fend off the challenge from miniLEDs.”
