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 SamsungVillage.com – 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.

If you’re interested in learning the details regarding the AMOLED (Active Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diode) [...]

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). [...]

How It Works: AMOLED Displays

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. Whether you already know what AMOLED is or not, we’re going to thoroughly explain it for you, so next time you buy a mobile device and somebody tells you it’s got an AMOLED screen of some sort, you know exactly what they’re talking about.

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 [...]

Samsung getting “huge orders” for flexible OLED displays, products on track for 2012 release

by: AdrianMay 14, 2012

Just about a year ago, flexible displays seemed like a dream, but things progress quicker than we’ve ever imagined. Samsung has been making waves in the media for a couple of months now, with its “bendy” panels, and, according to some fresh official claims, there’s already “huge” request for flexible OLED screens.

Kwon Oh-Hyun, Vice Chairman at Samsung Electronics, told the guys at KoreaTimes.co.kr that its company is “getting huge orders from electronic makers for the futuristic lineup of flexible organic light emitting diode (OLED) displays”. Kwon added that “we will be mass producing flexible OLED displays from the latter half of this year as the demand from our [...]

Rumor: Sony working on an Xperia smartphone with a 4.3-inch AMOLED display

by: AdrianApril 9, 2012

Even though Sony isn’t exactly the most popular Android smartphone manufacturer on the market, the Japanese have always had a few things going for them. I, for one, have always liked the Xperia designs and especially their top-notch TFT displays.

However, if we are to believe a rumor from a couple of days back, it seems that Sony will try to mix things up a little with at least one of their future Xperia smartphones. In spite of the fact that we have no idea when this new supposed Xperia would come and how it will be priced, it seems that the device will be Sony’s first-ever smartphone to sport an AMOLED display.

The gadget’s display should measure 4.3 [...]

Industrial espionage: Former Samsung researcher arrested for selling AMOLED tech to rival firm

by: Mike AndriciApril 7, 2012

Ok, so maybe this story won’t make it into the script of the next James Bond movie, but it does go to point out that the IT industry is not based entirely on honesty and trust. So here it goes: according to the South Korean police, 11 people were arrested on Tuesday on suspicion of leaking AMOLED technology from Samsung Mobile Display to a local competitor.

According to the police spokesperson, a 46-year-old former employee of Samsung Mobile Display leaked key information on the “small mask scanning” technology, for the sum of roughly US $170,000. As this technology is of key importance in producing large AMOLED displays for television sets (please bear in mind that [...]
