Samsung working on a 1080p sAMOLED screen and phone
The first 1080p smartphones are a reality, but the next generation of Android flagships promise most probably FullHD screens.
MK News is reporting that Samsung is already working on a FullHD display, using the company’s trademark Super AMOLED technology. It’s too early to tell what kind of matrix they’ll use – the PenTile, like on the Galaxy S III, or a full RGB, like on the Note II.
It’s neither clear how big the display will be, though it should have a pixel density of at least 400ppi, meaning 5″ or bigger. Sources say Samsung is also preparing a smartphone that will use this screen too.
Speaking of phones with 5-inch FullHD screens, the HTC J Butterfly, already official, packs a 5″ Super LCD3 screen with 1080p resolution (440ppi). There’s also the Oppo Find 5, which also promises 1080p resolution on a 5″ screen.
Those seem to be the specs of choice as both LG and Sharp are making 5″ 1080p displays. The Sony C660X ‘Yuga’ might have a 5″ 1080p screen too, made by Japan Display (a merger between Sony, Hitachi and Toshiba).
So, Samsung and LG reportedly have 1080p smartphones planned for the first half of next year, and Pantech (another Korean maker) seems to be joining them, too.
