A couple of months ago I posted an article about OLED monitors and laptop displays in which I discussed why there isn't any such product on the market yet. Today the Korea Times reports that Samsung Display will today unveil new 14" OLED panels at the IMID 2014 tradeshow in Korea.
If this report is correct, this is very interesting - as it probably means that Samsung Electronics is finally developing a laptop device with an OLED display. This could also be used in a large tablet (perhaps with a keyboard attachment) or a laptop/tablet hybrid device. We'll probably know more later when we have a real report from IMID.
Even though a laptop or monitor display may not be the best market for OLED displays, I still think there's a lot of sense in that. I'm sure there's a real market for premium laptops and customers that will be ready to pay out an extra $200-$300 for a lighter and slimmer laptop with a fabulous OLED display.
Samsung has been showing similarly sized OLED prototypes before. But we're way past the "OLED prototype demonstration phase" - and I think that if SDC will indeed show a panel it means they intend to turn it into a product soon.
