Samsung Show is sharing a preview of the brand new “OCTA” show expertise that may debut in a Galaxy E-book laptop computer throughout subsequent week’s Unpacked occasion. This expertise, which is already utilized in smartphones, considerably reduces the thickness of touchscreen OLED panels.
Current OLED laptops ship touchscreen performance utilizing a TSP (Contact Display Panel).

Samsung Show believes its large-screen OCTA (On-Cell Contact AMOLED) expertise will remedy this downside—it integrates contact sensors immediately inside the OLED panel, eliminating the necessity for a plastic TSP.
Moreover, Samsung Show means that OCTA expertise will enhance touchscreen responsiveness. However we’re unsure that this can be a actually noticeable profit. A thinner display screen is absolutely the promoting level of OCTA expertise.
This huge-sized OCTA expertise will debut in a “high-end Galaxy E-book mannequin” throughout the Unpacked occasion on February 1st. Samsung Show claims that the laptop computer will provide a 16:10 facet ratio, 120Hz refresh charge, and 3K decision (plus a thinner display screen than the competitors). Actually, it appears like OLED heaven.
Keep in mind that Samsung Show is technically separate from Samsung Electronics. It provides show expertise for a number of “competing” manufacturers, together with Apple. We suspect that these OCTA shows will seem in non-Samsung OLED laptops all through 2023.
