Samsung’s flexible AMOLED display technology delayed

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.

Samsung postpones production of flexible AMOLED screens

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 Galaxy Note II rumored to have flexible AMOLED screen

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 flexible OLED displays ordered in huge numbers

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.

LG renames Optimus LTE to Optimus True HD LTE to highlight non-Pentile screen

When it comes to Pentile matrix displays, there are three major opinions: those who don't know, those who don't care, and those who absolutely can't stand them. LG seems to be squarely in the third camp, and they want to make sure that Chinese customers know exactly where they stand. To that end they've renamed their current flagship Optimus LTE (known as the LG Nitro HD and the LG Spectrum here in the States) to "Optimus True HD LTE", highlighting the fact that their 4.5-inch IPS 720p panels use a standard matrix layout. The first market to see the change will be Hong Kong.

New “Dark Google Apps” mod saves battery on OLED phones

Screens that use organic light-emitting diodes, better known as OLED and AMOLED, have a unique method of image production. When instructed to display a "black" color, the individual pixel cells are physically turned off, providing the stunning blacks seen on OLED-equipped devices like the Galaxy S II, DROID RAZR and the original Nexus One. Interestingly, this also means that displaying a mostly black image on an OLED screen also draws less power than a white or full-color image. To take advantage of this technological quirk, an intrepid modder on XDA has set about modifying all of Google's core Android apps to save the maximum amount of battery on OLED phones, via the simple expediency of reversing the color scheme.

Samsung Galaxy M announced, brings AMOLED to the budget crowd

Samsung has just announced another Super AMOLED packing Android smartphone, the Galaxy M Style. Following their announcement for the new Galaxy Ace, and with the Galaxy M Style they are promising it will be "reasonably priced" while still packing a 4" Super AMOLED display and Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
