Samsung Display Co. will start mass production of 7-inch 720p-resolution OLED panels as early as June 2021 with an “initial monthly target of less than one million units”. These displays would then be sent to assemblers in July.For reference, the current Nintendo Switch model has a 6.2-inch screen with 720p resolution. This new screen would appear to have extended the screen of the current Switch that replaced most of the black bezel around it.
“The OLED panel will consume less battery, provide higher contrast, and possibly a faster response time compared to the Switch’s current LCD,” said Yoshio Tamura, co-founder of the consulting firm. in DSCC display.
The report also claims that Nintendo has decided to go for rigid OLED panels for this new model, a “cheaper but less flexible alternative to the type commonly used for high-end smartphones.”
