Leak: Samsung Developing High Performance ClorOLED Display With 16 subpixel RGB Matrix
Samsung phones are very popular, especially the Galaxy S3. However, many of them come with a PenTile display which doesn't use discrete RGB pixels, leading to a bright fringe around text and slightly reduced clarity. According to leaked info, it looks like Samsung is now working on a super-high clarity display which may end up being used in the Galaxy Note 3 in 2013.
Samsung are apparently working on a so-called ClorOLED display, which will feature a true RGB matrix with 16 subpixels - this is 30% more than the 12 subpixels found on the Galaxy Note 2's Super AMOLED display.
Apparently, the pixel density will be very high too at 358ppi. However, the leaked info claims a resolution of 1024 x 980 pixels on a 5.8 inch display, making for only 244ppi, so something isn't quite right here. Regardless, the one thing that we can be confident of is that Samsung will bring out an impressive display next year. Hopefully, this technology will also find itself in desktop monitors in the not too distant future.
Furthermore, we heard recently that Samsung has managed to achieve 350ppi+ pixel densities with its current conventional AMOLED production technology, called Fine Metal Mask (FMM), so that might be the production process for the ClorOLED brand in the end.
