Samsung To Produce 7" Super AMOLED Screens Next Year

According to Gizmodo, Samsung will begin production in June of next year of 7" Super AMOLED displays which will be displayed, according to AndroidandMe, in two weeks time at an international exhibit. The story originates from ETNews, a Korean news site, and it is reported that the 7" Super AMOLED displays will feature a 1200 x 600 resolution.

AndroidandMe writes that one of the big strengths of a Super AMOLED display "is that it uses significantly less power that traditional AMOLED which allows mobile devices to last longer on a single battery charge."

The Samsung Galaxy S line of phones all feature Super AMOLED screens. During my time with a Galaxy S device, I found the screen to have a great mix of daytime readability, brightness, color reproduction, and sharpness.

One of the big questions when Samsung announced the Galaxy Tab was the lack of a Super AMOLED (SAMOLED) display, which is currently manufactured with a 1024 x 600 TFT LCD display, instead of the Super AMOLED displays that set the Galaxy S line of phones apart from the competition.

As for whether a variant of the Galaxy Tab with the Super AMOLED display will cost more than the TFT LCD, no one can say yet. However, if Samsung can't tackle their problems producing the screens, we may have trouble finding these displays in non-Samsung products for a while, and it may result in higher prices.
