“LG supplies OLED screens to arch-rival Samsung”

The South Korean tech giants Samsung and LG are each other’s great arch rivals, but now the two manufacturers would do business anyway. LG would supply OLED screens for TVs to Samsung.

LG has been the main player in the market for years oled-tv’s. Brands such as Sony and Panasonic also sell OLED TVs, but use screens made by LG Display. However, Samsung is again the most important player in the total TV market, with the most devices sold. In recent years, these have mainly been LCD TVs, in the higher segment equipped with quantum dots and sold under the qled brand.

However, Samsung now also makes its own OLED screens: QD OLED, in sizes 55, 65 and 77 inches. For larger OLED screens, Samsung would now have signed a deal with LG, reports Reuters. From this quarter, LG Display would supply OLED screens to Samsung in 77 and 83 inch formats.

With the move, Samsung would come in second place in terms of numbers of OLED TVs delivered. Now Sony is still in second place, behind LG.

Both Samsung and LG are also working on the successor to OLED: microLED. This is also a technology that produces both light and color, resulting in thin, flexible screens. MicroLED is currently still far too expensive for consumer TVs.

Differences remain large

Despite the LG screens, the televisions of the different brands still differ a lot from each other. They use their own processors and software for image processing, and all have different operating systems.

There is also a difference in terms of standards: Samsung, for example, is the only major player that does not support Dolby Vision, but HDR10 +.
