HP did not reveal the price premium of the OLED model, but they said that it will ship by the spring of 2016. It’s highly likely that Samsung Display is the producer of the AMOLED.

An OLED-Info reader recently raised the question – where are the OLED laptops and OLED monitors? This is an interesting question. Samsung currently produces AMOLEDs ranging in size from 1.63″ for wearables to 10.5″ tablet displays and LG Display is mass producing 55″, 65″ and even 77″ OLED TVs . Samsung 12.1 inch laptop prototype, 2009 It seems that technically there shouldn’t be a problem producing 13-15 inch OLED panels for laptops or even 20-25 inch panels for monitors. In terms of pixel density, these panels will be simpler to make compared to Samsung’s mobile phone panels. Even a 13″ 4K laptop panel will require only 339 PPI – much lower than SDC’s latest 5.1″ QHD panels (577 PPI). And of course SDC can start with a 15″ FHD panel (146 PPI) which is easier to produce.

In March 2013 Oculus started accepting pre-orders for the second-gen development kit (the DK2) – which adopts a new low-persistence OLED. A couple of days ago, Oculus said they are starting to ship the first batch $350 kits. In the first stage they will ship 10,000 units ouf of the 45,000 pre-orders they got (the rest will have to wait a bit, probably till August). Oculus changed their design from an LCD to an OLED because they really want a low persistence display. They say that “itâ€™s incredible the difference low persistence makes… Itâ€™s mind-blowing”. The OLED display runs at a high refresh rate – it switches in well under a millisecond. This is the fastest OLED on the market , supplied by Samsung.

In January Oculus VR unveiled their latest HMD prototype, which adopted a low-persistence OLED display . Today Oculus started accepting pre-orders for the second-gen development kit (called DK2) – which adopts the new OLED. The DK2 costs $350 and will ship in July. Oculus said that they chose the OLED because they really want a low persistence display. They say that “itâ€™s incredible the difference low persistence makes… Itâ€™s mind-blowing”. The OLED display runs at a high refresh rate – it switches in well under a millisecond – faster than any LCD monitor on the market. In fact, the company says that the OLED they use is much faster than any other OLED panel on the market. Read more about Oculus VR's second-gen dev kit is now ready for pre-order

Samsung announced the successor to the popular “Phablet” Galaxy Note , the Note 2 – with a a 5.5″ HD Super AMOLED display (1280×720, PenTile ). Yes – this is a ‘regular’ glass based AMOLED panel, and not a plastic-based flexible YOUM panel as earlier rumors suggested. I guess we’ll have to wait some more for Samsung’s first flexible-OLED device, due in 2012 (it’ll probably have a much smaller panel).

Camera maker RED announced their next generation EVF – the Bomb OLED EVF . We do not have a lot of technical information, but RED says that the OLED microdisplay (maker unknown) improves the contrast ratio “dramatically”, and reduces the power consumption by almost 75% (compared to the older LCoS EVF). The temperature operating range improved to -46C/70C (from -10C/50C) and the Black uniformity and White uniformity is now near 100%. The OLED Bomb EVF costs $3900 and is now in stock. LCoS EVF owners can upgrade for $1,200. Here’s a nice video from Engadget showing RED’s new accessory line, including the EVF: read more
