Samsung Display has announced that it has started mass producing new OLED displays intended for laptops. ASUS will have first dibs on the 90 Hz and 4K panels, which have made their way into current Zenbook and Vivobook Pro machines.

Samsung Display has announced via a press release that two new displays for laptops have entered mass production. Both panels are OLED, including a 14-inch model that runs at up to 90 Hz. While Samsung has not commented on the resolution of this display, it has confirmed that ASUS will be using them in its Zenbook and Vivobook Pro series. Based on previous press releases, the panel runs natively at 2,880 x 1,800 pixels in a 16:10 aspect ratio at up to 600 nits.

Reputedly, the 90 Hz OLED panel provides significantly better response times than conventional 120 Hz IPS panels and approximately 10% less motion blur, too. Presumably then, it will not be long before companies start using the panel in gaming laptops, such as the ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14 or the Razer Blade 14, for example.

Samsung Display adds that the second OLED display to enter mass production is a 16-inch and 4K panel. Apparently, the company has designed the display for creative professionals who need a bright, colour-accurate and contrast-rich display, a description that fits the ProArt StudioBook Pro 16 OLED nicely. Samsung Display expects both panels to reach consumers in Q4 2021, so from as early as next month. So far, only ASUS has announced it will be using Samsung Display's new OLED panels so far.
