AMOLED: public demands proper display technology
A flexible Samsung AMOLED screen - Looks nice huh?
Through the provision of information by organisations such as laptop screen replacement specialists, people in general are becoming aware that there are a handful of low grade laptop screens being produced and fitted to the majority of mainstream laptops. In addition to this, these low cost screens are even being fitted to supposedly high end laptops and gaming machines.
The truth of the matter is that the people are not stupid, they know this and a huge public demand for better quality displays has pushed the LCD industry to research technologies that provide higher quality viewing devices. This issue has been compounded by Apple's retina dispay technology. Retina claims to provide a display image of a quality that at a distance of 12 inches from the display unit - is indiscernible from real life. In other words the display shows a resolution and colour depth that matches the capabilities of the human eye. It looks real.
Samsung have released the Samsung WAVE phone, which uses a technology known as AMOLED, we believe that laptop screen will do an "about turn" and go back to the higher quality we used to see in models such as the 10.4 and 10.6 inch Sharp panels that used to fit to the Fujitsu Lifebooks and the 11.1 Toshiba panels that went in the Sony VGN TT and TZ machines. These kind of displays gave a rich vibrant colour depth, a black that was really black and could be viewed from almost any angle without degraded viewing pleasure. They were better for watching movies than most large screens.
What is it?
As highlighted by a document source entitled, “Samsung Display,” and posted recently on the OLED-Display website, the year of 2012 will see the arrival of AMOLED screens. Whilst ordinary laptop screens, (often TN displays,) allow only restricted contrast and viewing angles, AMOLED screens offer the viewer far greater contrast levels and facilitate generous viewing angles. The first of such screens however will no doubt appear, firstly, in high end laptop models as they cost a significant amount to produce. The aforementioned source goes on to forecast that, by 2014, Samsung will be producing as many AMOLED laptops screens as they do currently for tablet models. It is as this time that we can expect production costs to decrease and AMOLED screens to appear in more affordable laptops.
The future is bright - The future is AMOLED :)
