Samsung ready to start making 1080p Super AMOLED HD panels in 2013

0. phoneArena 12 Nov 2012, 09:39 posted on

Samsung is going to start mass production of 1080p Super AMOLED HD displays at some point in 2013, according to several reports coming from the far east. Excited? You should be! A panel like that would have a resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels, which would translate into a pixel density of over 400 pixels, depending on the screen's size. Such displays are already being manufactured for devices like the HTC J Butterfly, yet they use LCD technology instead of AMOLED. The latter, despite being known for its broader color gamut, deep black tones, and shorter response time, still does not allow production of displays of such high resolution...

Hmm that's funny I'm going to be using a 1080p display this year that has better color reproduction than amoled screens this year in 2012 with My DNA

That's fine. Most people like AMOLED because it is a far more pleasing experience because its more vibrant. Some people may also like accurate colours, choice is great isn't it? :)

With Samsung you have a choice...
On SGS3, you can choose 4 different color modes, so you can have lower saturation and natural looking colors.
Saturation is no longer a point of argument with AMOLEDs.

Ok, just Google and look how much you will find smartphones with OLED based displays and Burn-In effect and how much smartphones with LCD based displays and Burn-In effect???

Yes, LCD can get Burn-In effect just because liquid crystals through long time affected by the same voltage (without movement) can get static load and stay in the same position for some time but the difference between OLED and LCD Burn-In is that LCD's Burn-In effect is NOT PERMANENT while OLED's Burn-In effect IS PERMANENT.
Also OLED based displays can get Burn-In effect much faster than LCD and I even don't talk that chance that LCD will get "Burn-In" effect is very very very small and namely on the phone!

Talking about OLED Burn-In it depends on various conditions it may happen even after few month. I remember long time ago I was Googling and found two big forums with vote polls in both forums voted really big number of Samsung Wave (S8500) users and in both polls ~30-40% users was claiming that after 3-4 month they have noticed 'Burn-in' effect. ~30-40% in 3-4 month it is really big numbers in such short time.
And today we can find more and more Google results about 'Burn-in' effect.

And even if it hapens after 2 years, why would I want such display??? Should it be somehow useful for me??? I don't think so!

The problem is that because noone still has improve organic compounds which are used in OLED. They have improve matrixes and used other "tricks" but hasn't improve main element - organic compounds and that's why OLED has such short lifespan and can get 'Burn-In' effect.

Here is example of 'Burn-In' effect on Samsung Galaxy S III (watch in FullHD !):

You also can find even more and more examples of OLED based screens 'Burn-In' effect just Google or search on YouTube and you will see that it is pretty easy noticeable!

After using my SGS2 for a year and half i did notice a slight burn in on the top of the screen where the notification bar is, but it seems that the main problem is the blue color.
I suppose that's why the colors are on the cold side - with time, blue subpixels get weaker so the cold colors effect diminishes.

My SGS3 is still too young to notice anything...

Still, they are aware of this issue and if you are a regular here at PA, you would know they worked on it, so there should be much less burn-ins on SGS3, and even less on future phones (they are improving the tech of those blue subpixels).

dude, I'm not a fan of AMOLED screen, too, except maybe some of the early RGB variety, but even LCD has burn in issue..

You don't have a damn clue what you're talking about.

There is no difference in the color gamut for those modes, it's just a difference in post-processing. White balance and color gamut doesn't change with those modes.

Yea I used to like LCD's until I got my first Amoled phone.

I dont see cartoonish. I dont see over saturated. My eyes just like Amoled better now. Sometimes, its just that simple. Its just based on what we prefer.

In my opinion there is four main OLED based screen cons:
1) Really short lifespan (due to organic compounds degradation).
2) Can not handle intensive "working load" and it expressed as 'Burn-In' effect (also due to organic compounds degradation).
3) Colors are not natural.
4) Relatively not so clear and sharp images.

I say NO for OLED based displays!

Aren't all of the big TV manufacturers producing OLED TV's for 2013. And they will be the next "big thing". ..?

Believe so.

"Aren't all of the big TV manufacturers producing OLED TV's for 2013."

I didn't hear about that before and I'm sure that it is not true and even if it was true then I'm sure that not all manufacturers.

Anyway who wants to have TV with not natural colors which also can easily Burn-In and has even shorter lifespan than any Plasma TV... No, I don't!

They already are the next big thing. Until something else beats it. LED cost more than LCD but cost doesn't mean its better. It's just my opinion and statistically proven by most companies, business, etc.

I see people say that, so maybe you are right.
I just have not had any complaints about my Galaxy S2, my Skyrocket, or my Galaxy S3. Since I obviously like Samsung phones, I admit I may have a prejudice.

I guess the point is you wont notice anything wrong about your screen until you see the better thing. If you put HTC One X and GS3 side by side I think you will see where AMOLED falls short.

Overall I think GS3 is better phone than One X though.

Thats the thing....I do notice the blue tint compared to my Droid X.

Overall...I like Amoled screen better tho. Cuz on its own, it looks white. Put it like this...I can live with and accept the cons of Amoled more than the cons of LCD right now. It used to be the other way around on 2010.
