AUO to begin mass production of 4.3" qHD AMOLED panels this quarter, rumored for Sony smartphones

Samsung might be the largest OLED display maker, but it's not the only one. Seeing what competitive advantage the Koreans have before the competition by utilizing the thin and with high contrast screen technology, it was a matter of time before someone tried to replicate it...

I highly doubt this will be a flagship phone given the fact that its has a qHD screen....

Lol it's obviously for a future midrange phone. Since the 4.3" Xperia S has a 720p screen they won't put such a low resolution in a flagship.

I checked out the Xperia blog for Mint and seen this....

"The author of the preview says that the phone is both smaller and lighter than the Sony Xperia S, which makes it much easier to use in one hand."

Then it goes on to say,

"The Sony LT30p Mint has a 4.6-inch (720 x 1280) display with on-screen buttons" ????? The Sony Xperia S has a 4.3 in display!! What the hell are they talking about??....But any way this phone looks reeeeely good and im hoping to see it soon, lets hope it is as light and easy to hold as they say it is....

Well, if you take a close look at XS and Mint, you'lll see mint has smaller bezel (especially on the top). Probably that's what they meant.

Apple is worried about other phones being rectangles and suing the world over it... all the while there is ACTUAL espionage going on at Samsung plants. The tech used in these screens were samsung made and patented and it took them years to get it right. This is an ACTUAL loss of income, unlike Apple's BS claims about how they should be the only smartphone in existence.

Easy - no need to bring Apple and Samsung here. AUO made AMOLED panels for Sony TVs in 2007 - it's an old story. They got it right back then while it took Samsung years to put it in production. OLED's been around for a long time.
