Our Far-East friends are always getting the trickest technology available. It’s enough to make us feel a little left out of the tech-game – what we wouldn’t give to get nicked by that cutting edge every now and then. Alas, Samsung has announced that they will start mass production of handset displays for 4 new KDDI handsets. Not much of an announcement, except for the fact that these new handsets will be rocking Samsung’s Active-matrix OLED (AMOLED) displays!
The KDDI handsets you see pictured above and below will all be fitted with Samsung’s power-saving but still brilliantly illuminated AMOLED displays in either 2.6-inch or 2.8-inch flavors. Check out the Infobar handset above, we’d seen this unique design before, but we had no idea that it’d be sporting AMOLED goodies.
Aside from these pics (courtesy Unwired View), Samsung and KDDI are staying tight-lipped about their upcoming AMOLED handsets. Hopefully they’ll release more deets, but we’re still trying to come to terms with the fact that KDDI Japan will be getting mobile phones with AMOLED primary displays.
We can only hope that Samsung sees fit to bring AMOLED mass production Stateside. Don’t hold your breath, but do cross your fingers (and maybe toes while your at it.
