OLEDNet posted an interesting article saying that Gionee’s upcoming GN9005 ultra-slim smartphone uses a 4.8″ HD AMOLED Panel (306 PPI) made by AU Optronics. OLEDNet says that the fact that this panel is called “AMOLED” and not ” Super AMOLED ” like SDC’s panels is a hint, and in addition, it is a low-performance panel compared to the SDC-made 5″ FHD 441 PPI panel Gionee used in their previous phone (the Elife S5.5 ). I’m not sure I’m convinced – this panel could still be made by SDC, even if it does not specifically use the Super AMOLED brand (this is up to Gionee I believe to decide). But OLEDNet says that according to their information, AUO started supplying AMOLED Panels to a Chinese maker last month.

Market research company TechSci released a new report in which they forecast fast growth (41% CAGR) in the next five years for the global pico projector market. Currently most pico projectors used DLP and LCoS microdisplays, but in the future laser-based projectors will be common, and in addition OLED technology will also play a “significant role” in revolutionizing the pico projector market over the next five years. This is really interesting. While OLEDs for pico projectors were discussed in the past, the only real activity we’re aware towards such a solution was a EU projector called HYPOLED back in 2008. That project, led by the Fraunhofer Institute, developed a VGA full-color OLED microdisplay coupled with pico-projector optics. Originally MED supplied the microdisplays, but the company went bankcrupt and they continued the work with MicroOLED . Read more about Will OLEDs help revolutionize the pico projector market?
Sony Xperia Z3X features a 6.14-inch Trimaster OLED display – Trimaster OLED display with Super Top Emission WOLED Pixel Structure
Sonys new smartphone flagship the Xperia Z3X features a 6.14 inch Trimaster OLED Display. The display has the same technology (Top Emission) like the broadcast monitor series. We think that the display can be produced in co-operation with Japan Display or in the same fab where Sony produced the broadcast monitors 7.4 to 25 inch size. The 6.14 inch Trimaster OLED has a Top Emission White OLED Pixel Structure with 2560×1152 Pixel resolution by 101% NTSC Color. The source think also that this smartphone features a 22 Megapixel, 2/3 inch main camera. The processor should be a 64-bit Snapdragon 810. The smartphone’s overall dimensions, will be 69.5 × 150.1 × 7.9mm, and based on the rendered shot, the device will also be accompanied by some rather professional-looking photo-centric accessories. We think that the Xperia Z3X will be introduced in 2015.

The Apple iPad Air3 (provisional name) will be released with a oxide TFT LCD Display instead a OLED Display. The new Tablet Pc from Apple should be released in the second half of 2015, the company want to reduce the thickness of the iPad and decrease the power consumption by more than half. This technical features are ideal for AMOLED Displays. But Apple plan also for their next products to use LCD Displays (oxide) , the major manufacturer Samsung Display, LG-Display, Sharp, must strenghten their investemts to deliver enough oxide TFT LCDs to Apple. Apple send a request to the named companies to develop a oxide TFT LCD for its 9.7 inch iPad Air. Yes we know Sharp is producing already Oxide LCD for iPad the amount of use by Apple is not large because of issues concerning yield. Apple is under pressure because Samsung introduced the Galaxy S Tab series with Super-Amoled which is the best Tablet Pc Display on the market. Why Apple plans with oxide LCD? Apple did not want to buy Super-Amoleds from their major rival Samsung! They have no leadership in that display technology, everybody know Super-AMoled is produced from Samsung Display.

OLED Display costs for Smartphones to fall below LCD soon – In 2016 AMOLED handset Panel Costs Expected to Fall Below LCD-Displays
Thanks to improvements and the investements from the leading OLED company Samsung-Display the production costs of organic light emitting diode panels for handsets, smartphones are near at the same level like LCD-Displays. DisplaySearch says in their Technology report that the manufacturing consts for AMOLED panels for handsets are currently 10-20 percent higher than for LCD Displays. In two years OLED panels were expected to cost less than LCD panels, thanks to major improvements in production yields. In 2014 a 5 inch Super-Amoled Display costs about 16 percent more than a LCD with the same size and resolution. Instead of LCD OLED does not need a backlight, and has a better color gamut, higher contrast, super fast response time and slimness. Jimmy Kim senior from DisplaySearch says: “Until recently there have been few breakthroughs in the production of AMOLED displays, and the OLED industry seemed to be facing hard times,” If Organic light emitting diode Panels are cheaper than LCD and does have a better picture quality, it would lead more opportunities for that industry, with greater competition with LCD. At the moment Samsung Display has problems to sell Super-Amoled to rival companies! Source

Researchers from Philips, Graphenea and the University of Cambridge developed a new graphene-based transparent electrode that outperforms ITO in OLED lighting panels. . Graphene by itself is not a good electrode material because the concentration of the charge carriers is low – which means that you need to dope it with excess carriers – while leaving it flexible and transparent. To achieve that, the team used a metal oxide film (molybdenum trioxide, MoO 3 ) as an intermediate layer between the graphene and the OLED layers. The work was performed as part of the EU project GRAFOL, aimed at roll-to-roll mass production of graphene.
