There are reports that Samsung is working on a new device called the Galaxy Q that will bridge the gap between the smartphone and the small tablet. It will have a Super AMOLED Plus 5.3″ display. The Q will come in two versions: 3G and LTE, and will launch in September during the IFA 2011 exhibition in Germany . A 7-inch Super AMOLED prototype Achieving an HD (720p) display on a 5.3″ screen requires around 270ppi – which means that Samsung will not be able to offer that resolution using their current technology (which limits AMOLEDs to around 200ppi ). So this is probably not the rumored Super AMOLED HD display . read more

Is Samsung working on a 5.3" Super AMOLED Plus phone?
A few months ago we reported that Samsung Mobile Display (SMD) will raise 3.4 trillion won (about $3 billion) from its parent companies (Samsung Electronics and Samsung SDI). Today we learned that Samsung Electronics increased its stake to 64.4% and SDI now has 35.6% (the joint-venture was split 50-50 before). Apparently there are reports that Samsung Electronics wants to take over SMD entirely, but SDI claims that this is not true and they want to keep their stake. The money will be used to boost SMD’s AMOLED production capacity. This investment is part of Samsung’s massive $4.8 billion OLED budget in 2011 . read more

Samsung Electronics increases stake in SMD to 64.4%
Researchers from the Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology in South Korea developed a new seamless foldable touch AMOLED display, that can fold in half without showing a visible crease. Samsung says that current research is mostly geared toward flexible/bendable displays , but a display that can be folded in half is great for making a large display in a portable form. To make the seamless display, the team used two AMOLED panels, silicone rubber, a glass cover and a modular case. Their prototype was folded 100,000 times – and still the brightness at center of the display (where the two panels meet) decreased by just 6% – which is hardly visible by a human eye. read more

Engadget posted a very positive review of the Samsung Galaxy II , saying that this is the best Android smartphone, and it might well be the best smartphone today. Regarding the 4.3″ Super AMOLED Plus displays, they say that the screen is nothing short of spectacular. Great contrast and colors and supreme viewing angles. “We’d even go so far as to say it’s better than the iPhone 4′s screen, purely because, at 4.3 inches, it gives us so much more room to work with. It’s almost impossible to split the two up in terms of quality of output, they’re both top notch.”. Engadget says that the original Super AMOLED displays exhibited slightly grainier images due to the PenTile matrix, but the new Plus displays (which use a real-stripe matrix) has great resolution and detail. The new display also has got rid of the oversaturated colors. The only down side of the screen is the auto-brightness feature (but that has nothing to do with the OLED…).
Earlier today we posted that Sony may have to delay the NGP launch , and now we hear that the Japanese earthquake may disrupt production of equipment required for factories expansion in Korea – including Samsung’s 5.5-Gen AMOLED fab . MK (a Korean business news site) reports that Samsung’s AMOLED fab requires some equipment that is imported from Japan, and the company might require to delay operation of the plant. According to Samsung the delay (if at all) will be between one month to three months at most.
Samsung Mobile Display (SMD) will raise 3.4 trillion won (about $3 billion) from its parent companies (Samsung Electronics and Samsung SDI). The money will be used to boost AMOLED production capacity. SMD is currently a 50-50 joint venture, but this might change after this move as SMD hasn’t decided on the breakdown of the share placement between its parent companies. This investment is part of Samsung’s massive $4.8 billion OLED budget in 2011 . read more
