Breakthrough could lead to 400% clearer smartphone displays

Scientists have been able to raise the percentage of light generated by LEDs to 38%. In doing so, it creates ambient light which causes the image to become hazy. But Chou has been able to eliminate the ambient light with a nanotechnology structure called "plasmonic cavity with subwavelength hole-array". Surely you remember that from science class, right? This raises the percentage of emitted light to 60%. Contrast is increased by 400% and the whole process rids the LED of the heat that costs it long life.
Testing still continues, patents need to be filed, and there is still a long way to go before this comes out of the lab and into your smartphone screen. But the technology does exist to improve the displays on future handsets. It is all just a matter of time.

You know what I love? That your sour grapes can't be masked by fake laughter. Your beloved Android is bankrupting companies (Well, the ones Apple isn't chasing out of the game), and by this time next year, the Chinese OEMs will probably finish the rest. Still funny?

One thing that isn't clear to me in this article is, will this technology improve both LCD and OLED or OLED only? (Considering most LCDs nowadays are LED backlit)

Would this be great news for TV's as well or is higher contrast not really an issue for larger than phone LEDs?

People will just claim it has unatural colours because it's not the type of LCD they are used to seeing.

Not if apple uses It seems any tech apple use is perfect for the media. When apple adopts AMOLED tech you can bet the media will change their tones. The only reason they hate AMOLED is because it's associated with samsung. Why make the foreigner look supreme???
