While Samsung and LG are taking steps to increase the production of AMOLED displays, the moves may be too late for short term effects, especially those waiting so long for their HTC Droid Incredible pre-0rders. Samsung also recently announced that it has plans to have an additional fab up and running by the end of 2011 strictly to produce AMOLED displays, but is that enough?
According to iSuppli, both companies despite taking these steps to increase the supply for the huge demand of this new technology, are not shipping the quantities needed to meet demand. Instead, the aging AMLCD displays are taking back over as we just recently saw with the switch in the HTC Droid Incredible displays coming out.
If the reports on the quantities shipping according to iSuppli are correct, it won’t be until after 2014 that we see the AMOLED displays making a comeback into our beloved phones. With the advantages of the AMOLED display, this is sad news and hopefully a quicker solution can be found to increase the supply.
I for one have not used a phone with the AMOLED display, so I am not aware of the difference but I am curious to hear from our readers. If you have or used a device with the AMOLED display how much better it is display and battery wise. I would like to hear what you think on the situation.
