Since then we only saw a handful of photos, but even the briefest of looks suggests that we’ll probably be seeing some changes to Samsung’s approach to OLED screens, and soon.
Samsung has not yet revealed what, exactly, the Neo 3D will feature, but according to reports, the display will use a different technology for both the backlight and the ambient light level. This leads to the idea that it may be some kind of dynamic refresh rate. Since Samsung is also rumored to launch a new OLED TV , it would make sense that Samsung would be planning on a switch to this new technology. Whether this would be a variable refresh rate (VCR-esque) or an IR projector like Sony’s Mira and LG’s TCL TV , will be a different story entirely…
While we wait for more information, take a look at some more concept renderings showing off Samsung’s next-gen screen. Note that the images featured by Samsung were shared by a user claiming to have spotted a Neo 3D in action. Note that in both these images the screens have been angled to cover both the right and left sides of the lens, similar to the way the image was taken. These renders were all taken during a short trip on July 20 around 1:40 am, which would make sense given Samsung’s penchant for planning trips and vacations.
For the third time this month, we’re seeing Samsung showing off an image of the upcoming Neo 3D display. The device itself looks nearly identical to the one they showed at GTC 2012, and there’s no indication it will bear a Samsung name. The only important thing is the inclusion of the RGB stripe that was present in the 2012 prototype, but which did not appear in the latest render. This is an exciting development for the development of OLED technology, and we’re still waiting for Samsung’s own new OLED TVs to see the light of day.
