Samsung Display was aiming to develop red, green and blue (RGB) OLED on silicon (OLEDoS) technology.
Like its competitors LG Display and Sony, the company will develop OLEDoS that uses white pixels and color filters first.
But it ultimately aims to develop OLEDoS without the need of white pixels, sources said.
OLEDoS deposits organic materials on silicon wafers instead of glass substrates.
This allows the panels to be smaller while achieving high resolution.
Sony is the leader in the field and is developing OLEDoS that uses white pixels with color filters.
It will be supplying the panels to Apple for their mixed reality device launching next year.
Samsung Display, while it will follow suit for now, wants to deposit RGB subpixels on silicon without the need for white pixels.
Existing WOLED and color filter combination expresses the RGB color with the color filter.
