That's where you should use your income for, Samsung
Marketing is essential but it's enough

$200 Million - hmmm, that calls for samsungs petty cash drawer to be opened. You know, where small change is kept

Never heard of Novaled before, but a pretty good buy there if it improves on battery life and endurance.

I dont think Samsung invented everything, i thought they stole everything. /s
You know, they have patent issues with LG over OLED screens as well

I dont really know who is at fault regarding the Samsung VS LG's patent case on OLED screens.

I just hope they can control the blue pixel's rate of degredation. It's been a bit over a year since my mother got her S3, and you can already tell the color balance is starting to warp. It's very faint, but by the 2 year mark I'm sure it'll be noticeable.

So now Super AMOLEDs would be more durable just like LCDs. Good move Sammy.

If they make this move, hopefully we'll see the pay off in next year's Galaxy S5

Not that quickly. They haven't even acquired them yet, they're looking to. Even then, the whole process is super slow, and it'll take a minimum of two years to do anything with the new technology, even after an acquisition would be completed.

Good to see them spend cash on something that is not marketing

This is one good new a good lasting screen and energy efficient since most of the battery consume on screen. I just hope this will solved on a burned screen.

Samsung is still giving this costly super amoled to their customers. Not like retina gimmicks.
Best of luck for Samsung.
