Recently, SamMobile reported that Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Book 3 Ultra would use a new OLED touchscreen. The screen size will be 16 inches, while the resolution is going to reach 3K. The other noteworthy features include a 16:10 aspect ratio and a 120Hz refresh rate. Samsung claims this is the world’s first OLED panel for laptops with an integrated touchscreen.
Samsung Display says integrating the touchscreen panel into the display reduces the overall thickness and complexity of the screen. This approach does not require an extra plastic film for a separate touchscreen layer. In other words, it is more environmentally friendly.
OLED panels have been the trend in notebooks in recent years. So the company plans to develop larger OCTA (On-Cell Touch AMOLED) panels for notebooks.
“The difficulty level of the touch-integrated technology surges greatly as the display area increases, which leads to the increased number of touch sensors required. We were able to achieve the natural feel and touch responsiveness for larger displays through the development of new materials and process technologies.”
The Samsung Galaxy Book 3 Ultra is going to be the top-end model of the series, equipped with Intel’s 13th generation Core i9-13900H processor. It should also come with up to 32GB of LPDDR5 memory and 1TB NVMe SSD PCIE Gen4 storage. Other than that, the notebook will come with an NVIDIA RTX4070 GDDR6 8GB discrete graphics card.
The laptop will weigh 1.8 kg and have a thickness of 17 mm. There will be a 76Whr battery and the box will include a 136W power adapter. We are talking about a Windows machine, running the latest Windows 11 operating system. In addition to all of this, the laptop will feature an AKG-tuned quad-speaker that supports Dolby Atmos sound.
