Samsung is finally gearing up for OLED-based televisions. The Korean giant has formally announced its decision to invest $10.8 billion in QD-OLED TV R&D and production lines, paving the way for big-screen displays that should equal or best LG’s offerings.

According to DSCC, Samsung’s QD-OLEDs will offer several advantages compared to LG’s current WRGB (four subpixels + color filters) system. Samsung will be able to use three sub pixels and only two emitting layers (LGD uses four), and so its stack will include 13 layers compared to 22 layers in LGD’s TVs – which means fewer deposition stages, improved yields and lower material costs.
