Samsung to launch a new OLED device stack, to be first adopted by the Vivo IQOO 8 Pro smartphone

According to reports, Vivo will soon release its latest IQOO smartphone (IQOO 8 Pro). The phone will use an AMOLED display produced by Samsung Display. This panel, in fact, will be the first one to adopt Samsung's latest E5 OLED stack.

We do not have any information on this new stack, but OLED companies keep improving the material stack to enable higher efficiency - and sometimes to increase the color gamut, reduce costs or improve other performance points. Hopefully Samsung will announce the E5 stack officially soon.

The IQOO 8 Pro display will be a 6.78-inch 3200x1440 (517 PPI) panel, driven by an LTPO backplane (1-120Hz refresh rate) and will support DC dimming and a peak brightness of 1,500 nits.
