Nokia currently uses two suppliers for their active matrix organic light emitting diode (AMOLED) screens: TPO and Samsung. Today it’s been discovered that they’re looking to add a third supplier: LG. An unnamed source told The Korea Times that “some technical issues still remain and actual shipping to Nokia will materialize in a year” and that “the Finnish company wants to produce more mobile phones with AM OLED displays”. Peter Yu, an analyst at BNP Paribas in Seoul, doesn’t think LG has the capacity to feed Nokia’s thirst for OLED screens, but it’s too early to tell what’s really going on.
We’ve seen devices like the Nokia N85, N86 8MP and 6600 Fold use OLED screens, and more devices using this new screen technology is always a welcome thing. OLED has superior viewing angles, uses less power and therefore enhances battery life, and the only negative people seem to find is that the display is a little hard to read in direct sun light.
