Samsung is the world’s leading manufacturer of OLED screen for smartphones and smartwatches. Samsung OLED panels are used in the Apple Watch line, and the South Korean tech giant is attempting to maintain its lead by hastening the transition to next-generation display technology.
Apple will use microLED screen for the Apple Watch, similar to Samsung
According to the most recent leak, Samsung formed a team last year to commercialize microLED displays for smartwatches. Currently, the company is selling high-end TVs with microLED panels. As a result, developing a commercially viable solution for smartwatches is not far off. In fact, sources close to the situation claim that the group’s deadline is this year.
Of course, even if this Samsung team does not complete the project this year, we will see Galaxy Watches with microLED screens by next year.
MicroLED panels outperform OLED panels in terms of brightness and energy efficiency, and they provide better sunlight legibility.
If Samsung is successful, it is possible that the Apple Watch will switch to microLED screens in the not-too-distant future.
