Samsung SDI has developed a next-generation flat panel display, which can be
used for internal screens of dual-display cell phones, for the first time in the
world. Samsung manufactured an organic light emitting device (OLED), specific
for main displays of handsets. Samsung’s new 65,000-color product, however,
broke through the technical limitations by extending its size to as large as 1.7
inches, big enough for the internal displays of dual-screen cell phones, without
compromising the quality. External displays don’t require high resolution or
long durability but internal screens require these features as main displays of
handsets are increasingly evolving into handheld personal computers.

The new OLED is being touted for its post-LCD technology, which has
performance advantages such as durability and enhanced efficiency as well as
being lightweight. Compared to LCDs or other predecessors, OLEDs provides visual
imagery, which is easier to read and has more vibrant colors, all while
consuming less power.  In addition, the product is based on passive matrix
(PM) OLED technology, which was previously believed to be inappropriate for
internal displays. Its commercial kickoff won’t be possible until next year at
the earliest.
