LG's new display also has the same resolution as Samsungs, 320x240. It can produce more colors, a whopping 16.77 million colors, the same as most consumer PC monitors. All of this is only about 150nm thick, or a little more than the average human hair.
“This display capitalizes on the strengths of OLED technology and its image quality is really something to behold,” said Hyunhe Ha, executive vice president and the head of the Small & Medium Displays Business Unit at LG.Philips LCD. “Although we are still in the initial stages with this technology, we expect to make some exciting advances in the near future. LG.Philips LCD is focused on customer-centered technology development to introduce products that customers want.”
Both of these displays feature metal based foils that keep them durable and resistant to heat. Using the a-Si backplane technology, LG is allows to use its existing TFT-LCD production line for the AMOLEDs, making the product commercially viable. Samsung is starting mass production on its displays, and LG will be showing its display at the Society for Information Display (SID) 2007 in Long Beach, California on May 20th.
