by: AdrianOctober 29, 2012
With the already high stakes in the patent wars increasing by the day, the debates over what is true innovation are getting more confusing than ever, especially for regular users. Still, it’s not as difficult as one would think to invent, reinvent and push technology limits.

Samsung is working on 350 PPI AMOLED displays that will trump Apple’s Retina

by: LucianJuly 30, 2012

Mockup by GSMArena

The display of Samsung’s latest flagship, the Galaxy S3, hovers just over the 300+ PPI (pixel per inch) mark, which, according to Steve Jobs himself, is enough for people to not be able to distinguish the individual pixels. Apple later backtracked and started releasing “Retina displays” with only 264 PPI for the new iPad, and only 220 PPI for the new Macbook Pro, claiming that the difference in viewing distance compensates for the smaller pixel density.

But Samsung is planning to make displays that are a lot sharper than the iPhone’s Retina. Thanks to advancements in in the Fine Metal Mask production technique and use of [...]

AMOLED revolution to grow stronger in second half of 2012, courtesy of AUO and CMI developments

by: AdrianJune 27, 2012

AMOLED displays are probably today’s most popular panels when talking about smartphone manufacturing (especially Android-based devices), but currently there aren’t that many companies developing the technology.

Samsung is, by far, the world’s most important AMOLED panel manufacturer, but the company’s leading position in the market niche might well be challenged soon enough. At least, that’s what we can make of one of Digitimes’ latest reports, which claims that AU Optronics and Chimei-Innolux are looking to get into the AMOLED business soon enough.

Both AUO and CMI are specialized in developing TFT-LCD panels at the time, but, if Digitimes’ sources prove to be [...]

Samsung Galaxy S3 vs LG Optimus 4X HD – head to head comparison [video]

by: ClaytonJune 18, 2012

The Galaxy S3’s presence is currently being felt throughout the world. With the S3, Samsung has easily produced one of the hottest smartphones to ever hit the market. Destined to shine, the Galaxy S3 bears the specs that help it handily beat out nearly any phone on the market. But, despite its prowess, Samsung’s superphone is facing some top-notch competition. Competitor HTC, with their One series phones, obviously aims to steal the spotlight from the Galaxy S3. But, who would expect the not-so-prominent LG to throw a quad-core behemoth into the mix? One that gives Sammy a run for their money, at that!

Not yet slated for a U.S. release, the LG Optimus 4X HD has [...]

Samsung has manufactured 200 million AMOLED displays since January 2007

by: Mike AndriciJune 11, 2012

According to a recent blog post on – an official Samsung blog about the various companies under Samsung’s control – Samsung Mobile Display has produced no less than 200 million AMOLED panels. Since this new display technology entered mass production in January 2007, simple math (spooky, I know!) dictates that Samsung have produced an average of 100,000 panels each day, although real-world number show that it took Samsung 53 months to produce their first 100 million panels, and thus they have doubled production numbers in the past 11 months alone.

Samsung to unveil world’s thinnest 4.8-inch AMOLED display at SID 2012

by: AdrianJune 6, 2012

After bringing flexible OLED displays closer to reality than ever, Samsung seems to be pushing the boundaries of touchscreen technology even further, clearly targeting to consolidate its Android smartphone market lead over the likes of HTC or LG.

Furthermore, it’s becoming clearer that Apple’s iPhones are to be threatened by future Samsung mobile phones, some of which might sport 4.8-inch displays measuring 1.92 mm (0.07 inches) in thickness. Sammy will be showcasing said touchscreen at the Society for Information Display (SID) expo in Boston today and tomorrow (June 6 and 7).

The touch sensor-integrated panel has the same 4.8-inch diagonal as the display of the [...]

Sharp IGZO displays developed for smartphone and tablet use

by: Chris SmithJune 5, 2012

IGZO, short for indium gallium zinc oxide, is a new display technology currently developed by Sharp in collaboration with Semiconductor Energy Laboratory, that could soon be used in future smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices.

IGZO displays can apparently offer “high crystallinity” as well as “higher resolutions, low power consumptions and higher performance touchscreens.” According to EE Times Asia, the new technology is different than current amorphous IGZO semiconductors tech:

This jointly developed new IGZO technology imparts crystallinity in an oxide semiconductor composed of indium (In), gallium (Ga) and zinc (Zn). [...]

by: Chris SmithJune 1, 2012

You’ve heard the AMOLED term a bunch of times when looking for more information about a certain smartphone (especially an Android-powered one) or when actually talking with the in-store carrier representatives about the characteristics that differentiate various mobile devices between them.

AU Optronics to start shipping AMOLED displays for the HTC One S and Sony devices

by: LucianMay 29, 2012

Taiwanese display supplier AU Optronics is going to start offering some serious competition to the absolute leader in AMOLED displays, Samsung, which owes about 98% of the AMOLED market.

Having only one player with such a massive market share is not usually a good thing for the evolution of a product. Samsung’s utter dominance of the AMOLED market might explain why we didn’t see a Super AMOLED Plus display in the Galaxy S3. Moreover, some LCDs like LG’s AH-IPS and the HTC One X’s display (which seems to be AH-IPS but with some tweaks) are starting to pose serious threats to the supremacy of Samsung’s Super AMOLED.

However, HTC is [...]
