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.
