Samsung Divides Display For Lower Power Use
Jun 29, 2005, 12:21 PM by (staff)
Samsung has announced a new section type LCD display that should begin appearing in phones as early as this fall. The display is a single 1.15 inch unit, most likely designed as an external screen for clamshells or a main screen for inexpensive candybar style phones. The unit is divided into two sections - one which can stay on all the time as a watch and icon display for signal strength, battery and notififications, and a second larger area for when the phone is in use. By separating control for the two sections, the display will use 1/6 the power of a full display of the same size when in standby mode. The display also has significantly improved contrast and viewing angle for easier use outdoors.
