Sharp to manufacture 1080p displays for phones in 2013

Sharp to manufacture 1080p displays for phones in 2013

  Phones with large displays  are the in thing these days with a few noteworthy players like the Dell Streak and the Galaxy Note 2 leading the charge. Currently the largest displays on these devices were only able to support resolutions upto 720p. Chinese mobile manufacturer Oppo were the only ones to manufacture a 5 inch 1080p display for their upcoming Oppo Find 5 but now it seems that many future devices are going to get these amazing displays thanks to Japanese Electronic giants Sharp.     The company has been working on a 5 inch 1080p HD display designed to be used in smartphones, and it looks like they’re finally ready to go into production. With a 1920×1080 resolution and a pixel density of 443 this should be one of the most SHARP looking displays there are.Even though Sharp do produce their own line of Android smartphones, but like Samsung, it has no problem offering components to competitors. These high quality displays would start rolling out sometime next year and with that we can (literally) see a really bright future for our handheld devices.

World’s First 1080p display smartphone by Oppo

World’s First 1080p display smartphone by Oppo

Samsung, HTC, Sony, LG, Apple are few of the names that almost everybody knows, but hardly anybody knows about the Chinese company Oppo. They first came to the stage when they introduced to the world the world’s thinnest smartphone the “Oppo Finder“, now Oppo just gave another blockbuster announcement. The Chinese company is coming up with the world’s first smartphone which as a Full 1080p display (1920×1080 resolution).   The device called the “Oppo Find 5” is a 5-inch smartphone which has the pixel density of 441 ppi. Not even the iPhone 4S with its “Retina” display comes even close to it, as the iPhone has only 326 ppi. This powerhouse of a phone’s display is literally going to blow away the competition.     The device is no slouch when it comes to power as well, its said to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro chip with a Quad-core Krait processor and will be running Android’s latest OS Jelly Bean (Android 4.1). The price and launch date have not been unveiled yet, we will let you all know as soon as it comes out.    ...

Audi to replace rear view mirrors with Samsung’s 7.7″ AMOLED displays

Audi to replace rear view mirrors with Samsung’s 7.7″ AMOLED displays

German sports and luxury car manufacturer Audi have announced that their upcoming line of R8 E-Tron models would be replacing the traditional rear views mirrors with a  7.7-inch AMOLED display supplied by Samsung. The digital rear-view mirror will work in conjunction with a camera that will enable a larger field of vision unlike a conventional rear-view mirror. The ultra-lightweight camera is located in an aerodynamically optimized housing, and despite featuring a lens only a few millimeters in diameter, captures a much larger field of vision than a conventional rear-view mirror.  Audi selected the ultra slim Samsung AMOLED (active matrix organic light emitting diode) displays like the ones’s currently found in smartphones in particular as they are thinner, lighter and more energy efficient than a conventional LCD monitor, and the organic materials used in the display are self-illuminating at low voltage, therefore do not require back lighting, making them easier on the driver’s eyes. The display’s intelligent control system prevents dazzle from the headlights of trailing vehicles, and can be manually dimmed or deactivated by the driver at any time.  Audi says it is working on incorporating more functions and additional information into the display in the future. At this stage, the digital rear-view mirror system will be fitted exclusively to the R8 E-Tron, although the technology is expected to filter down through Audi’s vehicle line-up in the coming years as it becomes cheaper, more advanced and more widely accepted. We are in an age where smartphones and tablets are replacing those bulky computers, rear-view mirrors being replaced by Digital displays and so on. So what does the future hold in store for us next ? I’m hoping for a flying car (me and my wishful thinking). What would you guys want ?...

Samsung to overtake Apple’s Retina Display bragging rights

Samsung to overtake Apple’s Retina Display bragging rights

  The one thing left for Apple owner’s to brag about these days are the Retina Display screen’s used in the iPhone4S and the new iPad. Not for long. A recent report from Korea suggests that Samsung have managed to reach 350 ppi on an OLED display using FMM (Fine Metal Mask). The Retina display on Apple’s iPhone 4S features 326 ppi and the panel on Apple’s new iPad sports 264 pixels per inch. Up until now Samsung focused on LITI (Laser Induced Thermal Imaging) technology to reach such high resolutions, but if this is true then Samsung can quickly apply this production process to their current AMOLED devices. With the development of FMM (Fine Metal Mask), Samsung is said to be able to achieve an OLED pixel density of up to 350 ppi (pixels per inch). Currently, such high-density pixelation can only be achieved by with LCD mobile displays. And even though we have devices like the Galaxy Nexus, which does have a 720p AMOLED display, the crispness and clarity can never match that of the HTC One X or Apple’s Retina Display (due to its need of a pentile display). Mixing the colors of Super AMOLED displays with the non-pentile pixel-density of LCD would be a dream. The difference would mostly be noticed in small text, which is actually pretty crisp in AMOLED HD displays. But does it match HD LCD ? Definitely not. In other words, we may soon see Samsung smartphones featuring screens with industry-leading clarity in addition to the amazing color reproduction they already achieve. Hats off to the Korean giants for once again coming up with something to give Apple a run for their...
