New OLED gadget: Samsung Galaxy Book 3 Pro / 3 Pro 360 / 3 Ultra

Samsung''s 2023 laptop series, the Galaxy Book 3 includes three models, all equipped with AMOLED displays. The Galaxy Book 3 Pro offers a 14" or 16" 2880x1800 120Hz Dynamic AMOLED 2X VRR display, and Intel's 13th-Gen Core i7 chipset.

The Galaxy Book 3 Pro 360 has similar internal specifications, but only comes in 16" and is a convertible laptop that can act as a tablet, and so Samsung added integrated touch (OCTA) and S-Pen support. The Galaxy Book 3 Ultra offers the same display as the Book 3 (16" 2880x1800 120Hz VRR AMOLED) but has stronger specification as it is intended mainly for gaming.

Is current OLED architecture obsolete? An interview with the head of Germany's Max Planck Institute

Researchers from Germany's Max Planck Institute, led by Prof. Paul W.M. Blom, are looking into single-layer OLED devices (in which a single emitting layer is sandwiched between two electrodes), with an aim to match their efficiencies to those of common multilayer OLED stacks, like the ones used in commercial OLED displays.

Current OLED architectures utilize multilayer stacks of materials, in order to increase the performance and lifetime of OLED devices. But according to the latest findings by Prof. Blom, equal efficiencies can indeed be met with single-layer TADF OLED emitters - and there's no fundamental reason or major benefits that arise from multilayer OLEDs.

Panasonic says Kopin's microdisplay yields are very low, and so it more than doubles the price of its upcoming MeganeX VR glasses

In early 2022,Shiftall (a Panasonic Subsidiary) launched the MeganeX lightweight VR glasses based on dual 1.3" 120Hz 2560x2560 dual-stack OLED microdisplays produced by Kopin and LakeSide Optoelectronics.

Panasonic aimed to start shipping the MeganeX in early 2022, but it was delayed and now it plans to ship it by March 2023 (which will mean that in total it took around 6 years of development). Panasonic further says that as Kopin's production (at Lakeside) suffers from very low yields, it had to increase the price of the display and so the cost of the VR headset increased from 100,000 Yen (around $750) to 250,000 Yen (almost $2,000).
