While Sony’s Reality display technology does look awesome, it tends to use more energy than other screens used by the rest of the industry. The problem is that Sony uses LCD-based screen, whereas most other handset makers have AMOLED-based ones, which are more energy efficient.
That, however, is about to change with China Times’ report indicating that the Japanese giant has ordered 4.3-inch AMOLED screens from AU Optronics, to be used in an upcoming phone that will be introduced in the second half of the year.
Folks at Taiwan-based AU Optronics are experts in making phone displays, with their clients including such companies as Apple, Samsung, Dell, LG, Viewsonic and Acer. The company was formed back in 2001 by Acer Display and BenQ’s Unipac Optoelectronics Corporation, and incorporating Quanta Display as of 2006.
Unfortunately we don’t have any details about the forthcoming Sony device but we’ll definitely give our best to find something about it. As soon as we get a new tidbit of information, you’ll be the first to know. Stay tuned…
