OLED VS. Mini LED Display: Everything You Should Know
However, when confronted with different parameters and performance of these two displays, it is difficult for users to judge which is more worth investing in. And one question that is frequently asked , is mini LED better than OLED? So, in order to give you a wise idea of which one to choose, this article will take you through this widely debated topic in the industry.
OLED VS. Mini LED Display: Definition
ü OLED Display:
OLED refers to an organic light-emitting diode consisting of a series of organic thin films sandwiched between two thin-film conductive electrodes, through which OLED emits light. OLED is like a small light bulb, each light bulb can independently control the light emission of pixels to form various colors, so the OLED display can emit light when it is powered on.
ü Mini LED Display:
Mini LED refers to the sub-millimeter light-emitting diode, a new type of display technology. In addition, this new technology integrates LED chips directly into the PCB to emit light. Since mini LED display adopts backlight technology, the LED lamp beads can be made quite small so that the display screen achieves a more precise light control effect.
It is worth mentioning that the mini LED display from HCP adopts the industry's leading COB technology and patented mass transfer technology to produce high-quality mini LED displays. In addition, our advanced technology greatly enhances the yield rate, brightness, and contrast of our mini LED display, achieving a better display effect and higher protection performance compared with competitors.
OLED Displays: Pros and Cons You Can't Ignore
ü Pros: Compared with traditional LED displays, OLED displays solve the problem of text display resolution. Additionally, the OLED display greatly improves the picture's brightness, contrast, and response speed.
ü Cons: Since the OLED display adopts organic materials, long-term use will accelerate the aging and shorten the service life of the screen. At the same time, due to the high production cost of the OLED display, it is not suitable as a large-screen display solution but is more used in computers, mobile phones, tablets, and other screens.
Mini LED Display: Why It Becomes the Winner in the Industry?
Mini LED display has driven the booming market of the ultra-fine-pitch to a large extent and has attracted an increasing amount of display manufacturers to settle in. After reading the following pros of the mini LED display, you may understand why the mini LED display has become acclaimed:
ü The clarity of the mini LED display is comparable to that of the OLED display. Still, it has higher brightness, larger size, and more flexibility for a variety of application scenarios than OLED.
ü The mini LED display adopts technical patents, such as COB technology and mass transfer technology, which not only improves the yield and precision but also solves the problem that the traditional display cannot achieve high-quality and mass production.
ü Mini LED display manufacturers continue to upgrade their products' functions, only to provide users with large-screen solutions with high speed, high transmission, high resolution, and high contrast.
ü Mini LED displays can provide durable high performance and reduce maintenance costs for users to a certain extent.
