Pretty soon, the organic light-emitting diode (OLED) displays will replace liquid crystal display (LCD) screens on most smartphones.
Top brands like Samsung are said to have already switched their focus from LCD to OLEDs for their high-end Galaxy phones, with Apple not far away from picking OLED for its iPhone in the foreseeable future, possibly the iPhone 8.
But that’s not all. Much to everyone’s excitement, most Chinese brands such as Huawei, Oppo, Vivo and Meizu are also warming up to the idea of making the switch in display panels.
It is interesting to note that LG is one of the few phone makers who have repeatedly vouched for OLED in their TVs till now, and could soon make their move with mobiles as well.
OLEDs are valued more than the LCDs by the industry for its better power efficiency, and it also helps in designing thinner phones. In addition to that, the prospect of getting flexible phones in the market sooner than later will also enhance the market demand for the OLED display.
Currently, LCD has been dominant force on the mobile phones, but like most tech evolutions, this is also expected to bring a new lease life for the segment..
