What is an OLED display? 

Organic Light-Emitting Diode, or OLED, describes LEDs produced by organic molecules. The technology works by using OLED materials to produce thin films that slide between two conductors, and then applying an electrical current to emit a bright light. OLEDs facilitate emissive displays, meaning each pixel is individually controlled and emits light that can be switched on and off as required. As such, OLEDs are found in smartphones, TVs, and laptops, supporting brilliant image quality, fast motion, and bright colors.  

OLED vs traditional LED display 

OLEDs and LEDs turn electrical energy into light and are used to power many common display technologies. Although OLEDs offer more advantages over traditional LEDs, the two technologies coexist and are useful in their own ways. One major difference between OLEDs and LED technologies is the materials used — traditional LEDs use inorganic light-producing materials, and OLEDs use organic molecules. 

Light production  

One difference between OLEDs and traditional LED displays is how each technology produces light. LED devices do not create display images and rely on a backlighting unit to provide light instead. Without backlighting, LED panels would look almost entirely black. In contrast, OLEDs create images and emit light via tiny pixels that act like individual light bulbs. Turning them off leaves a pure-black background, and individually controlling each pixel creates stunning true-to-life image quality.  

Energy consumption 

A huge benefit of OLED displays is that they consume far less energy than their traditional LED counterparts. Individually controlled pixels mean that OLED displays only use the ones needed to produce an image. Unused pixels remain inactive until it is their time to shine, so devices use only a fraction of the energy required to power LEDs.  

Image quality  

OLED pixels produce their light and offer superior contrast ratio and color accuracy. Individual pixels can be switched on and off to create more vivid colors and image quality and achieve true black colors when necessary. Although LEDs can achieve higher brightness levels, they use a backlight to illuminate displays, which reduces color accuracy.  

Why should I choose the Acer Swift 3 OLED? 

The Acer Swift 3 OLED offers an outstanding 16:10, 2.8K OLED display, giving the very best image quality for watching movies or editing photos. With lightning-fast response times and refresh rates, Swift OLED laptops give users blue-free movement and sharper images. Self-emitting pixels produce deeper blacks and brighter whites to show minuscule image details and achieve a superior contract ratio of 1,000,000:1. As always, user safety is at the forefront of Acer technology. The Acer Swift 3 OLED display has been professionally calibrated and holds TÜV RHEINLAND Eyesafe® Display Certification as it balances blue light limitations while preserving image quality, preventing unnecessary eyestrain for maximum comfort. 

Stable connectivity 

The Acer Swift 3 OLD offers next-generation connectivity options with Wi-Fi 6E. It provides faster speeds for file sharing and 4K streaming so users can work or relax without interruptions.  


At just 3.09 lb (1.4 kg), the Acer Swift 3 OLED device is lightweight and suitable for working on-the-go. The Acer Swift 3 OLED oozes portability so users can simply pick up their OLED laptop and go while offering a maximum battery life of 10 hours for ultimate convenience.  


The Acer Swift 3 OLED is optimized for multitasking and designed for maximum productivity. It offers consistent responsiveness and wakes up from sleep mode instantly, so users can continue working throughout the day and night. The device offers a CPU performance of 45W​, offering ultimate multitasking potential. ​ 


High-performance devices tend to produce a lot of heat, which must be handled correctly to prevent damage. Acer Swift 3 OLED devices offer heavy-duty thermal solutions like dual heat pipes and an air inlet keyboard to keep everything cool without sacrificing performance. The device also includes two rows of large vents along the bottom panel to protect it from overheating. 


OLED displays feature LEDs produced by organic molecules that feature in many technologies like TVs and laptops. OLED technology comprises tiny pixels that can switch on and off like lightbulbs. As such, these displays provide rich and intense colors, helping bring colors to life. Similarly, they do not use backlights like traditional LED devices, enabling deeper black colors and higher contrast ratios for enhanced visuals. The Acer Swift 3 OLED is a lightweight, high-performance laptop with the benefits of OLED technology. It offers speedy response times and stable connectivity for efficiency and optimized multitasking on the go.
