What Is QLED?

Source: IHS

Quantum Dot color technology with existing LED technology. To give a brief outline, the Quantum Dots are tiny particles that are smaller than DNA, and millions of times smaller than the diameter of human hair. When exposed to blue light, it emits different colors brightly. So displays using Quantum Dot technology are capable of reproducing real and life-like colors compared to conventional displays. Additionally, the Quantum Dot displays have a longer life span.

When combined with the LED technology, QLED offers HDR brightness levels between HDR1500 and 2000, which basically translates into crisper picture and color reproduction.

How does QLED work?

As explained above that QLED is essentially a combination of Quantum Dot and LED, the technology places a layer or film of quantum dots in front of a regular LED backlight panel. It is worth mentioning that conventional displays have an 8-bit panel, however, the SUHD or Smart Ultra HD (4K) TVs have a 10-bit panel.
When this 10-bit panel is layered with the Quantum Dot Colour technology, it results in 64 times more color expression of conventional panels, which results in 1 billion different colors. These dots are capable of turning light into color. The blacks appear darker and the whites are brighter because there is no color overlapping or merging of details. This helps produce the true-to-life UHD effect.
