It would seem that the OLED panel on the X1 Yoga is actually using a non-standard sub-pixel arrangement:

Therefore one of the supposed benefits of Samsung RGB OLED over LG's WOLED is not actually true.

In more PC-related OLED news...

For the utilization of OLED in the medical care sector, Kwon said, “The monitor division at LG Electronics is planning to start expanding the medical monitor business, including ultra high definition medical monitors, from the end of this year."
They're obviously starting at the high-end with those medical monitors, but that still confirms the manufacturing of medium-sized UHD panels which would be necessary for professional and eventually consumer monitors.

That combined with their demonstration of HFR tells me that an LG-made 120Hz UHD OLED monitor is all but confirmed to exist at some point in the future.

Sorry to always rain on your parade but...

Those medical monitors are priced in the same range as Sony's broadcast OLED monitors or even higher. They also sell in similar tiny numbers. Are you expecting Sony to also sell OLED consumer monitors soon? You need panels targeted at large volume markets before you see prices trickle down to consumer level.

HFR has nothing to do with computer monitors. They are testing HFR for IPTV streaming of sporting events. All current OLEDs already run at 120Hz but you can't feed that via HDMI due to bandwidth limitations. Doubtful LG will ever add Displayport. HFR is basically a streaming-only format for the foreseeable future.
