Production of Full HD AMOLED displays for the Samsung Galaxy S IV to be at full swing by the end of the month

Production of Full HD AMOLED displays for the Samsung Galaxy S IV to be at full swing by the end of the month
If we had to guess one unique feature that will be exclusive to the upcoming Galaxy S IV, or whatever Samsung decides to name it, Android leader, it will be the new type of AMOLED display we saw at CES - large, without a PenTile pixel matrix and with resolution matching the best of LCDs, like the Full HD 5-inchers that will be flooding the high-end range of the market this year.

Given AMOLEDs high contrast ratio, vivid colors and wide viewing angles, such a screen would be a sight to behold, and rumors are piling up that's what we are going to see in the Galaxy S IV indeed.

The latest confirmation comes from the Korean publication DDaily, which has leaked tips on LG and Samsung plans before - they cite sources close to the supply chain, who state that Sammy is preparing to launch the mass production of such 5" AMOLED Full HD screens, which they should, if the commercial launch is scheduled for April.

The source indicates that the FMM process used for AMOLEDs so far wasn't able to go as high in terms of resolution without using an alternative pixel matrix arrangement like PenTile, which gives preference to green, which out eyes are most sensitive to, for the sake of red and blue pixels. For the Full HD panel, Samsung is apparently using a different method of production - perhaps a combo of FMM and LITI methods - and diamond-shaped pixels arrangement than what was until now, and we can't wait to see the results, more so since the publication states we are likely to see the same type of display in the next Galaxy Note phone.

I don't know how did you come up with this when you haven't even seen other phones. If you're talking about now, then Xperia Z is the best, but we still have MWC 2013 and other independent announcements like the s4...

If only Sony had AMOLED screens, then there wouldn't be any doubt. I rather have a 720p AMOLED than FHD LCD.

At the moment OLED based screens has more disadvantages than advantages and those disadvantages are pretty essential. I also choose LCD!

I've been a sucker for Super AMOLED ever since I got my old Galaxy S. I'd really like to see how it looks like in FHD on a small screen. I'd like to see one on a 10" tab too.

To be honest: - If you wanna a top fashionable phone: Xperia Z - If you wanna a top handy and portable phone: iPhone 5 - If you wanna a "smartest" device with many interesting features cannot be seen on other devices: Note 2
