Samsung 90Hz OLED laptop displays take aim at 120H LCD screens

It is almost standard for higher-end smartphones these days to have screens with high refresh rates, some even going as high as 144Hz.

Called LG QNED, perhaps to contrast with rival Samsung's QLED, the new Mini LED TVs are boasting the highest number of backlighting LEDs added to LG's other TV buzzwords.
