Also being able to dump the white pixel LG uses to boost brightness wouldn't hurt either.
Edit: Ah they need to OLED to be blue, that is unfortunate.
Of course Samsung's OLED TV tech has on back burner for years so they'll have some catching up to do.
That'll depend on how big you want your tv to be.
Blue LED was hard to make back in the day, beginning of LEDs. But then it was made differently and it's the easiest light to make. All (white) LEDs as far as I know are "blue" with a "filter"/phosphor that converts part of blue to yellow = yellow+blue = white.
QDs again are sensitive to short wavelengths = UV/blue.
Samsung is endlessly playing with naming of it's various QD endeavors, often trying to appear as OLED even when it's not. QLED, QD-LED, ...
QDs are neat but they also produce very narrow light. They don't exactly look realistic without proper setting up and calibration. Same as not all white is equal, CRI, quality matters.
QDs can improve displays, for sure but so far they've been cooking them in the basement and barely putting them into any products at all, let alone emissive displays or front parts of displays at least.
QD enhanced backlights is all we've seen so far.
