That's going to give Samsung a lot more competition as the SuperAMOLED+ technology in the Galaxy S2 was one of it's unique selling points.

Hmmm Sony's Walkman X series had OLED screens, and this was a few years ago, (they were discontinued 9-12 months ago) rich vibrant colors too, I wish they would make a phone based off the Walkman X series, it would match an iPhone in premium feel. (The walkman X had a Magnesium frame which was also the bezel, a glass screen, and an acrylic/plastic back, which is what i feel the iPhone 4 should of had...)
