Samsung, as we reported yesterday, is looking to invest billions in its display technology as well as manufacturing. And this move is seen as a way to increase its production as well as avoid the growing threat of Chinese companies in the industry. For this reason, the company wants to be as transparent as possible with its customers. So we have a new way for Samsung to satisfy its customers using an OLED TV from the company. According to a new report from Engadget, Samsung is letting you know if your display equipped with the OLED technology has a burn-in issue or not.
First of all, we will tell you about what a burn-in issue actually is. So you must have heard about the different types of display panels such as LCD, LED which has OLED and QLED panels. Now, OLED is seen as the best panel in the market with accurate and punchy colours but it also suffers from a problem of burn-in. This means that your pixels get printed on the display panel and you can even see them whenever the display panel is turned off. While this does not happen on an OLED panel right out-of-the-box, it does happen over a prolonged usage period.
Therefore, we must check if our OLED TV has burn-in issue or pixel retention issue and Samsung has made it easier for us. However, the catch here is that Samsung wants to sell you their latest QLED panels in return of the OLED TVs if they have a burn-in issue. According to the YouTube video posted below, Samsung says that you need to play this video on your OLED TV. In the first part, there is a bright red colour which will enhance your display and tell you clearly if it has burn-in. Samsung claims that if burn-in is found, you should contact the service centre or buy a QLED TV which is “burn-in free”.
