Yesterday, Samsung Mobile Display announced that they will be producing a new 3.3″ AMOLED display, complete with on-board capacitive touch sensors. The WVGA screen will boast a 480×800 resolution and, purportedly, will bring image clarity to the next level thanks to a touch sensor that is a mere 0.001mm thick (on average a human hair is 0.018 to 0.08 mm thick). The on-board touch sensor, “marks the first time that a touch sensor was placed over an AMOLED substrate” reports the Korean IT Times. Typically, the touch-sensing glass panel and LED screen are manufactured separately and later connected; by putting both components on the same substrate Samsung was able to achieve minimal thickness and better screen clarity. Samsung hopes that this new, improved, and easy-to-manufacture AMOLED will increase manufacturer demand for LED displays. We can’t wait.
