Both Samsung and LG Philips announced QVGA active matrix OLED (AMOLED) displays today. AMOLED displays can display bright, full color images and don't require a backlight or secondary glass layer like LCD displays. This reduces the amount of space and power needed for the display. The Samsung AMOLED is a 2.2" QVGA model capable of displaying 24 bit color. It is .5mm thick, and reportedly ready for mass production. The LG Philips model is a 4" QVGA model capable of displaying 16 bit color. It is only .15mm thick and made using amorphous silicon, so it is also flexible. The LG Philips model is not in mass production yet, however the company will not need to re-tool its factory to begin manufacturing it.

Verizon Wireless UI in 24-bit Color!!!

I should do myself a favor and switch to AT&T. Twisted Evil
you totally suckered me. i saw the headline and thought "wow, great, 240 million shades of RED."
I'm sure since Samsung and LG make phones with every carrier, that wether you like the idea or not, the OLED screens will be across all carriers.

screen life

the problem that is going to be faced with these screens is that OLEDs typically have lifetimes of around 5,000 hours when used for flat panel displays

Well, it's about damn time...

...they've been promising us OLED for years.
Yeah, hopefully it'll yield much better battery life, because this technology is suppose to use less power because it doesn't require a backlight, more brightness is always good too, especially for recording video, and mobile tv!!!

I just hope OLED...
