We will advance our new hybrid technology in But can QD-OLED compete with regular OLED, QLED or Mini LED screens?

Will QD-OLED really improve over regular OLED?

If you haven’t heard of QD-OLED before, don’t worry. This new TV technology is still in development and has been for years now. The important thing to know is that QD-OLED (also known as Quantum OLED) is Samsung’s big TV tech successor to its standard QLED displays.

It’s best to think of QD-OLED as a hybrid of both OLED and QLED display technology, bringing you the best bits of each in a dream display. So, in theory, you’ll get the high contrast capability of OLED and the great color enhancement of QLED, along with many other benefits.

Right now, it’s impossible to say with certainty whether QD-OLED will deliver on this promise. But so far it looks like QD-OLED is going to be a significant step up compared to previous displays – especially if TVs with this new technology are anything to go by.

A new report from the Korea Economic Daily suggests that Samsung’s new TVs will sit “between its top-premium segment of Micro LED TVs and its flagship QLED lines.”

This means the company’s QD-OLED TVs are likely to be even more expensive than the 2021 flagship, the QN900A 8K TV, which retails for a whopping price of $4,999 / £5,999 / AU$7,579 for the 65-inch model.

So although QD-OLED technology sounds great, you shouldn’t get your hopes up about buying a new QD-OLED TV unless you’re a Samsung display enthusiast. Everyone else may have to wait a few years before the price point becomes more affordable.

In the meantime, of course, there are plenty of Black Friday TV deals worth considering, from huge savings to top-tier TVs.
