AU Optronics Corp, or AUO for short, has unveiled a variety of high resolution displays for the electronics market. Among these is what the company claims to be the world's highest resolution panel for smartphones using AMOLED display technology.
There have been several reports dealing with Samsung and new model tablets. A report from earlier in the month brought details about a pair of tablets with AMOLED display and more recently, it looks like Samsung may be working on a similar device with a 10.5-inch display. The report comes by way of the Korean language ETNews and suggests an announcement could be coming as soon as next month.
At one time, Samsung tablets were AMOLED, the popular display technology present on their smartphones. Recently, Samsung has moved away form that technology for tablets, instead opting to utilize LCD panels. A new report out of Korea suggests they may be getting back to center, and putting AMOLED back on the tablet map.
Samsung may be preparing displays with 560ppi for upcoming devices, according to Samsung Display CEO Kinam Kim. He also hinted that Samsung was working on AMOLED tablets for 2014. The incredible pip density is said to make an appearance on Samsung’s refresh of their Galaxy S line, believed to be named the Galaxy S5.
Lately we've been talking quite a bit about flexible and unbreakable displays in our smartphones, but everything we've seen thus far have only been prototypes. Samsung looks to change all that and have confirmed we'll see their first (of many) flexible AMOLED display device next month in Korea. LG is also in the mix, but more interesting is the work being done at UCLA on the technology.
We've been hearing quite a bit regarding Samsung's extremely impressive and exciting flexible display technology for smartphones and tablets, but are now receiving some bad news. Multiple reports have started to surface stating that Samsung has yet again suffered a few setbacks, and their flexible YOUM displays could be delayed once more.
While the star of the show for Samsung at CES was most likely their massive Ultra HD TV sets they had a few tricks up their sleeve in the mobile world, they were just hiding from most of the public. Samsung was showing off their curved or "flexible" AMOLED display technology, something we're hopeful will make its first consumer appearance on their upcoming Galaxy S IV.
Flexible AMOLED touch screens might be the next big thing in smartphone technology, but sadly, it looks like we'll be waiting a bit longer for their arrival. Samsung is reportedly delaying the production of its flexible AMOLED screens due to issues with yields. Since Samsung has been aggressively pursuing these new screens, it stands to reason that we won't see these flexible screens featured in smartphones until Samsung can sort out its production issues.
Samsung is expected to reveal the Galaxy Note II soon, but such a reveal not happening until the end of the month, so there's plenty of time left for new rumors. This time around we're told by Korea IT Times that Samsung will be including a 5.5-inch flexible AMOLED screen for the Galaxy Note successor. This screen will apparently be combined with unbreakable plane display technology (UBP) and a plastic substrate, which will allow it to be tougher than your typical smartphone display.
Samsung's flexible OLED displays might become a reality soon on smartphone and tablets. We've seen this in the past with Samsung showing off the technology last year, and recently naming their flexible OLED displays "Youm" with a release date aiming for late 2012. This dream might soon become a reality (although I'm still not sure of the uses) as Samsung has announced they've received "huge orders" of their impressive flexible OLED displays.
