Samsung and LG both are two famed brands that manufacture leading displays for different devices. Recently, it is reported that Samsung and LG are ready to compete with each other in the OLED (organic light emitting diode) monitor market.

OLED panels have self-luminescence characteristics which offer a faster response speed than LCD panels, so users can see a clearer picture on OLED monitors. Based on this, this type of display is mainly installed in gaming monitors that require high specifications.

Both Samsung and LG have started to apply OLED panels to their gaming monitors that require high performances based on their faster response speed and clear picture quality compared to LCDs and are now ready to compete for the top position.

At the present time, Samsung is planning to launch a new OLED gaming monitor. The company has earlier introduced its Odyssey OLED G8 Monitor which equips a Quantum Dot (QD)-OLED panel. It has a curvature of 1800R, a WQHD (3440×1440) resolution, a 175Hz refresh rate, and a 0.1ms response speed.

Moreover, the Korean company will continue to target the gaming monitor market with high-end products loaded with OLED panels. This is because Samsung Display, which supplies QD-OLED panels to Samsung Electronics, has increased yields to a level where mass production is possible.

On the other hand, LG launched a new OLED gaming monitor, starting to expand its market share. This device features an OLED panel from LG Display and is the first OLED monitor that features a 240Hz refresh rate.

It has a response speed of 0.03ms. Because OLED panels have the characteristic of emitting light on their own, they have a faster response speed than LCD monitors.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 update September 2023 update US

Samsung might launch Galaxy Z Flip 6 Slim and Galaxy Z Fold 6 Slip GalaxyClub reports. While the company is marching towards its July Unpacked, rumors about new Slim models are surfacing now.

RossYoung hints that Samsung might introduce a Galaxy Z Fold 6 Slim. It could have a larger display than the regular phone and lack S Pen support. This variant could hit the market later this year in the fourth quarter.

The Z Fold 6 Slim is model-numbered Q6 Slim, while there’s also a B6 Slim. B6 is the model number of the upcoming Z Flip 6, with Slim also expected. These rumors point out that the affordable foldables might be Slim.

At present, we don’t have any idea of the specifications of the Slim foldables. Earlier, it was reported that Samsung was heavily shocked by the reduced thickness of foldable phones released by Chinese vendors specifically Huawei.

It looks like the Korean tech giant has decided to trim some key specs in order to make foldables thinner. Those who want pro-grade specs would have option to go for strategic models, while Slim variants would extend the choice.

Samsung struggles in Nvidia HBM test: Reuters

Samsung HBM3E Nvidia approval

Samsung is facing difficulties in passing the Nvidia HBM test Reuters reports. The report says that Samsung has not yet passed Nvidia’s tests for high-bandwidth memory. Issues with heat and power consumption are reportedly the major reasons.

Since last year, Samsung has been facing issues passing Nvidia HBM tests for HBM3 and HBM3E. Meanwhile, the South Korean tech giant responded (via Reuters), “The testing is still ongoing, and final results have not been determined.”

Last month, Nvidia failed Samsung’s 8-stack and 12-stack HBM3E chips. However, the testing is still running and the company may get more chances to get its chips passed. In case the company fails to pass the HBM test, it will lag behind its competitor SK Hynix.

HBM is a key player in the booming popularity of artificial intelligence. This semiconductor stacks DRAM layers to dramatically increase data capacity and processing speed. Currently, SK Hynix and Samsung Electronics have been sharing the market.

Analysts also say that SK Hynix, which developed the first HBM chip in 2013, has spent far more time and resources on HBM research and development than Samsung over the past decade, accounting for its technological edge.

iFixit ends Samsung collab, Repair Hub to shut next month

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold Flip 5 iFixit self-repair

iFixit made a surprising announcement, breaking its repair ties with Samsung next month. The company says that a number of reasons are behind the termination of this collaboration. Two years after servicing Galaxies, iFixit will stop selling original spare parts next month.

Samsung allegedly creates problems for independent repair services. Consumers purchasing original spare parts from Samsung are required to submit their name, contact details, home address, IMEI number, and defect details for every repair carried out.

“It’s with a heavy wrench that we have decided to end our partnership with Samsung. Despite a huge amount of effort, Samsung’s approach to repairability does not align with our mission,” iFixit reports.

The Galaxy maker also requires repair service providers to purchase spare parts in large quantities. Service providers stay away from hefty purchases as Galaxy phones are often designed in such a way that spare parts have to be sold as a glued unit with several components.

Changes taking place starting June 1st, 2024:

  • Starting June 2024, iFixit will no longer be Samsung’s designated third-party parts and tools distributor.
  • iFixit will no longer have a quantity limit of seven Samsung parts per repair shop per quarter.
  • No existing information will be removed from iFixit, but it will not collaborate directly with Samsung to develop new manuals.
  • iFixit will continue to sell parts and repair fix kits for Samsung devices, sourcing OEM parts when available and clearly indicating whether parts are original or aftermarket.
