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

That someone is rumored to be Sony for a while, when we first learned that it has ordered AU Optronics to make an AMOLED smartphone screen for them. Now we learn that AUO will start mass production of such screens, with characteristics like 4.3" diagonal, and 540x960 qHD resolution, resulting in a pretty decent 257ppi pixel density.
What handset is this planned for remains a mystery, but we keep our hopes high we could see it in the Mint flagship, or maybe something totally out of whack that will be on shelves in times for the holiday shopping craze.

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....

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.
