It is expected that Samsung will unveil the new Galaxy Book 3 at the February Unpacked event.

Samsung's next-generation Galaxy Book series will feature an OLED panel that utilizes on-cell technology, embedding touch sensors directly into the display for a thinner and lighter touchscreen. The company's display-making arm has begun mass-producing this technology for notebooks. This on-cell touch AMOLED (OCTA) technology incorporates touch sensors directly into the panel, instead of placing them on a film on the surface, resulting in a reduction of the display's thickness and weight. Both Samsung and Apple already use this technology in smartphones and its integration in laptops could make them even more portable.

Samsung has announced that the upcoming Galaxy Book 3 will feature a 3K resolution display with a 16:10 aspect ratio and 120Hz refresh rate. This aligns with previous leaks about the device, which suggest that it will have a 16-inch 3K Super AMOLED panel. Additionally, Samsung Display plans to sell this technology to other manufacturers, potentially including Apple for its rumored touchscreen OLED display in its MacBook Pro in 2025.

The iPhone has also used similar technology in the past, starting with the launch of the iPhone 5 and its in-cell touchscreen technology for a thinner display. The Galaxy Book 3 is set to be revealed at Samsung's Unpacked event on February 1st, and it is yet to be determined if the entire Galaxy Book 3 Pro lineup or just the high-end models will have touchscreen OLED displays.
