Guess who announced a 5.7" QHD AMOLED display with record pixel density (hint: it's not Samsung)
We've been hearing about an eventual Quad HD (1440x2560 pixels) Super AMOLED display from Samsung for a while now - first rumored to appear in the Galaxy S5, then in a mysterious "luxury" F series of smartphones with premium design by Samsung, or allegedly in a Note 4. That's why one would expect that Samsung will be the company to unveil a Quad HD AMOLED panel first, but the industry is full of surprises, and it's AUO that did it.

This Taiwanese company goes at the name of AU Optronics, and is one of the largest display panel makers, with a diverse flock of customers, which include Samsung itself. Despite that the CEO Paul Peng recently dismissed OLED as a viable alternative to LCD, citing yield and cost issues, AUO has been digging on the technology for quite a while now, and those efforts are definitely paying off.

AUO issued a press release that it has "successfully developed the world's highest-resolution 5.7-inch WQHD AMOLED panel." This Quad HD screens has 1440x2560 pixels of resolution, and breaks the 500ppi barrier, clocking in at exactly 513ppi. The highest-resolution panel on a phone so far is the 5.5" QHD 538ppi screen of the Oppo Find 7a, but this one is with LCD technology, and not even on sale yet. The other one announced with a QHD panel is the 6" Vivo Xplay 3S, which can be bought right now, but it is again LCD, and with 490ppi it doesn't reach the elusive 500 mark.

Thus, the 5.7" panel that AUO announced, is the highest-resolution AMOLED display unveiled to date, and the company said it has created a 6" Quad HD AMOLED panel, too. In addition, the Taiwanese have filled the niche for tiny AMOLED screens as well, announcing a 1.6" panel for wearable devices. Not only that, but AUO made a breakthrough with in-cell touch technology, releasing one of the thinnest AMOLED display packages, in the form of a 5" HD 720p screen with just 0.57mm thickness and 10-point touch, which is a prime candidate for ultrathin midrangers.

The moral of the story is that if AUO was able to muster a 5.7" Quad HD AMOLED display with 513ppi, then we can safely assume that the Galaxy Note 4 will sport at least such a screen, unless Samsung decides to go all fancy on us, and release it with a YOUM flexible panel.

I agree, battery is much more important.

The only thing you said that is right is "Do something with the battery ".

Everything else is just bogus BS you are spewing. In the world of technology things move forward... The next step in the evolution of the Smart Phone screen is QHD.

It's just the way it is... It's NEVER overkill.

Just you wait, battery tech will jump significantly in the VERY near future, so please just keep it together.

Technology constantly evolves, & it's NEVER overkill. It makes everything better & better.

Actually in the past 15+years of mobile phones, the thing that has evolved the least is the battery. Yes ok its got a bit smaller and the power has gone up a bit but its been only a gradual increase compared to EVERYTHING else which has shot forward at crazy speeds. I do wish that batteries would take a bit of a leap forward. There should be no reason to think that for example a galaxy note 3 cannot have a minimum of 5000mAh battery. Giving probable usage times of 2-3 days on med to high use. Not to much to ask i dont think :-)

So hard-pressed to even tell the difference between 359ppi vs 441 ppi !!!

But hey, I ain't complaining...513ppi is a huge welcome....I just hope these OEMs will still give us the 720p/1080p option in the years to come

AU Optronics are well known for their AHVA displays (similar to IPS and PLS)
Very good to see them competing with Samsung's AMOLED displays

AMOLED production is costly with high interval of deviation (means more difficult for quality control) in a high quantity production.
I don't think they can find enough orders to get over the initial fix cost for that.

I welcome QHD displays. They are going to put more strain on a phone's internals but I think that it would be nice to have such a high resolution. I currently have the note 3 which has the best display I've ever seen. Being a samsung galaxy owner for the past few years i have seen amoled displays get better and better. I think a amoled display of this size would be awesome. I really look forward to seeing samsung's 2k Super Amoled display. To me they make the best Amoled display's period. When I look at my first galaxy s and compare it to my note 3 it shows how far amoled displays have come.

I thought Samsung is the only company who can make AMOLED display. Now I know... Samsung is overrated

Resolutions are high enough already. Make a super bright amoled that's efficient.

"...dismissed OLED as a viable alternative to LCD, citing yield and cost issues" Really? So Sammy has just been bleeding money on all of those millions of phones over the past 2-3 years?

Don't think this is necessary , it'll drain the battery so fast that it will not even last for 4 hours let alone if you end up playing mobile games maybe less than an hour. They need to focus in fixing battery longevity .

Super capacitor. Nano tech, charges in 20 sec, 10x more charges than our modern lithium ion battery.wonder how long before its available...

Even if Samsung had this technology, they wouldn't have released it because they haven't applied on the new GS5.

Yeah overkill, but as long as it doesn't drain the battery I'm cool with it.
