LG takes shot at Samsung with new name for the LG Optimus LTE
LG has changed the name of the LG Optimus LTE and at the same time, has taken a little shot at Samsung's HD smartphone screens. Both manufacturers are headquartered in South Korea. By changing the name of the LG Optimus LTE to the Optimus True HD LTE, LG is pointing out that it doesn't consider Samsung's OLED panel to be true high-definition because of the use of pentile displays.

Samsung's OLED displays have lower pixel density than the IPS screens used by LG based on slides produced by the latter. The visuals show how a pentile display has 1.8m sub-pixels compared with the 2.8m using the RGB stripes. LG also believes that OLED panels overexpress colors while IPS panels reproduce colors perfectly. One slide shows that energy consumption is also better with IPS panels compared with OLED displays.

You have to admit that a whole lot was said just with a simple name change. But will Samsung be able to strike back in time with the Samsung Galaxy S III. The latest rumors have the eagerly awaited model using the first HD AMOLED RGB (non-pentile) screen made by Samsung.
