One of the biggest problems with OLED displays is burn-in, whereby static images (e.g., HUDs in video games) may become permanently affixed to the screen due to the aging of pixels, losing brightness as time goes on. Although engineers have yet to find a solution to this problem aside from workarounds that include pixel refreshing techniques, LG Display is now claiming that its OLED panels are less likely to get burn-in than QD-OLED displays, with a company rep calling out Samsung during a press call this week about how its competing screens are more susceptible to the problem. LG's claims were prompted by the results of Rtings.com's longevity tests, which suggest that TVs using Samsung's QD-OLED panels, such as the S95B, could show signs of burn-in after just two months.

I thought Samsung used LG panels and threw some QD barf on there to make them special?

Samsung produces their own panels. And the QD layer is more than just a layer slapped. Regular OLED, like LG's, use color filter layers, which is why they don't put out a lot of NITS. On Samsung's panels they use a single quantum dot layer that does the color management without filtering. Which is why they are brighter.

OLED is OLED though and they all burn in. LG is smokin crack if they think their panels don't burn in.
