Samsung smartphones and tablets with Super AMOLED HD screens coming in a few months?

With Toshiba and Hitachi having already announced the development of HD (1280 x 720) displays for phones (measuring 4 inches and 4.5 inches, respectively), you’re probably wondering when Samsung – one of the world’s largest display makers – will do the same. Well, it may happen quite soon.

Oled-info has reportedly talked to “two industry insiders”, including a Samsung supplier, which unveiled that the South Korean company intends to commercialize Super AMOLED HD displays starting this fall.

Apparently, one of the first Super AMOLED HD smartphones is the yet to be confirmed Samsung GT-I9220, which will come with Android Gingerbread and a massive 5.3 inch screen. I don’t think devices with displays larger than 5 inches should be called smartphones (tablet is more appropriate), but oh well.

It’s said that 7-inch tablets with Super AMOLED HD screens will also be introduced before the end of 2011.

Other companies that will likely launch phones with HD displays this year are Motorola, HTC and LG. It remains to be seen if any of them will use Samsung’s Super AMOLED HD panels – most probably not.

    The OLED-Association informed us that Samsung Mobile Display is ready to produce a Amoled display with 326ppi. This means that SMD want to produce a 4.5 inch Super-Amoled-HD Display with 1280×720 pixels. To reach this goal Samsung must switch back to the RGBG Pentile technology.
    But the OLED-Association are sure they will likely introduce RGB stripe versions just as they did with the Galaxy S to Galaxy S Plus –> Super-Amoled-HD-Plus
