Samsung is supposedly eyeing 1080P HD AMOLED displays for its future high-end smartphone models, says a Korean report. The company currently uses HD AMOLED displays in its flagship Galaxy S III and Note 2 models, but this may change in the next few years.
The translated report in DDaily.co.kr claims Samsung Electronics turned down an offer for 1080P HD LCDs from Japan Display and decided to work with in-house Samsung Display on the AMOLED panels instead. The company reportedly considered pricing and production capabilities when making this decision.
The AMOLED displays would be available in 1920 x 1080 resolution, which would result in a smartphone with a pixel density of approximately 440ppi, This beats out the iPhone 5’s 326ppi and closes in on Sharp’s new 5-inch 1080P HD LCD panels, which top out at 443ppi.
