      "What do AVForums members think about this possible shift in Samsung’s plans? Are you excited by the possibility of a new, albeit hybrid, technology hitting the market in a few years time? Let us know in the discussion thread."

      I would indeed be excited if "a few" turned out to be, let us say, two.

      The competition and choice 'should' be good for consumers.

      So one 'source' has 2020 as a mass production, another parts by 2021 and possibly 2022. I'll hold my breath...nope...and relax.

      In principle, a combination of OLED and quantum dot technology sounds enticing but by the time it is market ready we could have a worthy successor to OLED like micro LED on the market. QD enhanced OLED might just be too late. Time will tell.

      Wondering if Shame-sung would plaster their cheeky 10 year screen burn guarantee sticker on their OLEDs

      That will be the deciding factor. I bought a Q9 because I watch a lot of news and sport. Hopefully they won’t ditch Qled in favour of this hybrid, otherwise if Oled is the only option then we’ll all be sitting on screen burn time bombs.

      Screen burn time bombs? Most of you have been misled by Samsung. It is not a major concern since 2018 OLEDs.

      So running sky news 12 hours a day won’t eventually result in screen burn? Maybe for the casual varied user it isn’t a problem, but for those that watch 90% of programmes with banners and logos I’m sorry I don’t have faith, especially with oled manufacturers ‘you’re on your own’ attitude to warranties.

      I haven’t been misled by Samsung. I did my research on here as well as other places. I chose the TV that suits the lifestyle of my family. Not based on blurb.

      No it won't and you should ask yourself why are you watching Sky News for 12 hours a day !!
      It is sad that a lot of falling prey for Samsung's #1 scare tactic as they know their QLEDs can't outclass the OLED for overall picture quality.

      How ignorant, who are you to question what I watch and for how long. I didn’t fall prey to any scare tactics as I’ve seen the results of screen burn first hand. Jog on.

      Screen burn on 2018+ OLEDs could still occur with extreme usage. Watching the same channel for 12 hours a day could cause it but it is still a fair question to ask why would anyone watch the same channel 12 hours a day. This means they are spending half the year on watching TV and that too the same channel. Surely this doesn't sound healthy in my books. What are you are describing is an extreme case.

      It is not clear yet whether QD-OLED will have any advantage to LGs WOLED with respect to screen burn.

      In both technologies the light emitter is OLED based, so will fade over time. The only difference is that QD-OLEDs use quantum dots to change the blue light to red and green.

      Igans, you sound incredibly patronising and a bit ignorant.


      Sky News for 1-2 hours a day will cause screen burn or fade, or whatever it is on OLED.

      I know.


      I have never had an issue with screen burn on any TV, have owned plasma for nearly 20 years, starting with the PW3.

      I even left the Singstar Logo on for 12 hours to prove screen burn is not really an issue.

      However, OLED really struggles with Skys yellow ticker tape.


      I bought a Sony XE9005 for watching Sky News.


      To be honest, although I have my OLED as my main set, I think I prefer the LCD 95% of the time.
      I think I am going to try a Samsung Q9F or whatever it is called.
      Don't get me wrong, with reference material the OLED is better, but for everything else I prefer the Sony and everything else is probably 95% of my viewing.
