Samsung and LG may start making quantum dot screens

Samsung logoKorean news agency ETNews is reporting that Samsung and LG are looking to start mass producing Quantum Dot displays. Quantum Dots promise a wider color gamut (by up to 50%) than rival OLED displays, combined with increased brightness and lower power consumption.

Quantum Dot displays are like a hybrid between LCD and OLED displays. They don't use regular LEDs for backlighting, but instead uses blue LEDs which excite two kinds of quantum dots that produce red and green light respectively. Each pixel gets its own LED like in OLED, leading to the improved power efficiency.
