Future Samsung OLED panels will be more energy efficient, but it will be a long wait


Battery tech in our smartphones doesn’t seem to be getting better. What this means is that the next best thing would be to try and make the other components in our phones more energy efficient.

We’ve seen that being done to chipsets where they’re becoming more energy efficient, but what about displays? That could be something to look forward to in the future in Samsung phones and Samsung made OLEDs. According to a report from The Elec, it seems that Samsung could be considering improving its OLED panels.

This will be accomplished by adding blue phosphorescent materials to help reduce the amount of power it consumes. At the moment, OLED panels have red and green phosphorescent materials which have an internal luminous efficiency of 100%, whereas the blue materials are at 25%, which means that using this new material should in theory reduce overall energy consumption.

Exactly how much more battery gains we’re talking about remains to be seen, especially since there are many other factors to consider, but it’s still a good thing nonetheless. That being said, don’t expect to see these panels anytime soon. The report claims that development does not appear to be going smoothly which means that it might be either 2025 or 2026 where we will see these OLED panels utilizing this new material.
