Samsung uses a shadow mask that has holes for the pixels where they want to lay down the OLED materials. The mask is extremely thin and for a 4K display needs to have 8 million tiny holes for each individual pixel. As the screen size gets bigger, these masks lose rigidity and yields go down. Samsung tried to produce a 55" OLED TV but they never managed to bring the costs of the display down.

LG simply coats the entire display with each OLED material. They do have to add a color filter which adds to the costs but that is offset by much higher yields for televisions.

Samsung's process works fine for small displays and LG will use the same RGB architecture for mobile but televisions are another story entirely. I'm not sure which will win for monitors though.

Couldn't those panels be thicker for larger screens?

Anyway, let's see how it works out...

Well, who makes those $25k OLED panels?
You mean those pro Sony's?

Now imagine, Thunderbolt 3/USB-C smile.gif - DP 3 falls a bit short there in comparison.

Don't know if this was posted already, but if someone was still wondering if it's really 120 Hz, at least this interview with Michael Turner points towards it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=np7I4yybpIE

Kind of off-topic, but can someone explain to me what the heck was happening at 04:15?

Looks like a background reflection to me.

Haha, the Dell rep says "when you're ready to throw it, we're ready to catch it" in regards to 120 Hz 4K. Yet still remains vague about input connectivity. All he says is "Displayport". I HATE vagueness.

Come March 31st my wallet will be open though! Actually, come March 31st, if it has DP 1.3 I still may not buy it. Not until a GPU releases with DP 1.3 outputs. No point in spending $5K on a monitor to run it at 60 Hz. I'll most likely buy it once the new GPU's launch with DP 1.3. If it's Thunderbolt 3 only 120 Hz and the new GPU's don't have Thunderbolt 3 outputs, I'll never buy it.
