A couple of weeks ago we reported that it was questionable as to how much delay there would be with Samsung mass producing 1080p Super AMOLED HD displays in 2013. According to several reports coming from the far east, Samsung is indeed going to start their mass production at some point in 2013. A bit vague, but good news nonetheless. Could this mean an HD Samsung Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note III? Perhaps. I definitely wouldn’t put it past Samsung. A panel like what Samsung will be creating would have a resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels, which would make the pixel density of said panel over 400 pixels. Although, the size of the screen would also factor into that. Types of these displays are already being manufactured for devices like the HTC J Butterfly, although, they are using LCD technology as opposed to AMOLED. The latter still does not allow production of displays of such high resolution though.
What you also might find interesting is that Samsung was originally being offered to use the 1080p LCD displays that were being manufactured by LG Display or Japan Display. The offer was made in case Samsung found themselves having issues with trying to manufacture AMOLED displays with such a high pixel density. The Korean tech giant was even given a few samples to example this possibility and consider using them in some of their future devices. Samsung refused this offer.
Regardless, even though Super AMOLED HD panels with 1920 x 1080 resolution will start to surface in the next year or so, Samsung has been predicted to have a few troubles manufacturing enough of these displays in a sufficient amount of time. Although, Samsung has surprised us in the past, so I wouldn’t doubt if they had a trick up their sleeve. In an effort to boost their production capacity, it has been said that Samsung Display will be relying on a slightly modified version of its FMM (fine metal mask) manufacturing process. This will be enough to ensure that a monstrous screen like that would be able to fit on a smartphone like the possibility of a Samsung Galaxy S IV. At this point, we can only speculate and analyze what Samsung is up to. They are the only people that really know what’s going on, and I think Samsung is well aware about problems they could run into. I wouldn’t doubt that they have solutions for those problems either. Although, I could be biased as I really want to see these Super AMOLED HD displays.
All in all, Samsung will be starting up mass production on Super AMOLED HD panels at some point in 2013 with pixel resolutions of 1920 x 1080. Time will only tell what Samsung will be doing with these displays. I guess we’re just going to have to buckle up and wait and see.
Are you excited to see the possibility of a Super AMOLED HD display on your smartphone in the near future? I definitely am! Sound off in the comments below!
