Samsung Display Chief Executive Officer, Joo Sun Choi, stated that the company will produce vast quantities of 14-inch, 90Hz OLED panels for laptops and notebooks, beginning in March.

Samsung, which is among the largest supplier of OLED displays globally, said that their 90Hz OLED display is on par with the existing 120Hz LCD screens.

Samsung Display, a subsidiary of Samsung for display technologies, believes that consumers are rapidly adopting the idea to provide a 90Hz refresh rate on OLED displays, although high-speed OLED displays are also required graphics cards.

Those who are considered "clinically extremely vulnerable" will receive their immunization beginning in April. Roughly four million British Columbians are eligible to receive the COVID-19 immunization.

The company has also revealed that "several global IT companies" plan on releasing high-end laptop and notebook models with these new displays later this year.

While 90Hz is hardly fancy these days (there are much higher refresh rates), it is apparently unheard of on OLED laptop displays.

So that, OLED screens can create a more vivid, fun experience for games and movies without impacting, the company claims. "As such, the new refresh rate updates changes in motion more often, allowing for smoother-looking visuals that appear virtually seamless to the viewer". OLED screens can transition between scenes more quickly than LCD screens with the same refresh rate. Samsung says that its OLED screens smear very little and offer practically the same rate as faster LCDs. It said it's going to mass-produce the world's first 90Hz OLED laptop displays in the first quarter of this year. And despite Samsung itself launching an OLED-equipped Galaxy Chromebook a year ago, the 2021 followup uses a cheaper QLED-branded LCD display instead. In fact, a large number of gaming laptops do offer OLED screens as a customizable option, the trade-off being the lower refresh rate than what LCD screens offer.
