A source told me an interesting background story. According to him the A77 uses an “Active Matrix-OLED with RGB pattern” and it is made by ….Samsung!
“It is using the new 5.5 Generation factory and using the new laser technology instead Fine Metal Mask that was used before in all the Samsung OLED. The new laser tech allow Samsung make higher resolution displays (many new smartphones and tablets are coming with HD reolution this year). Also they are using a new green organic material PHOLED (they already are using the red PHOLED in the OLED displays.)”
Sony and Samsung are working together in this new display and it is probably that Samsung uses it too.
The technical features are under embargo and it won´t be available until 2012, but the display is big compared with other high resolution displays, it is around 0.9″ diagonal size and 4:3 form factor, but can be adapted to 3:2 and 16:9.”
Thanks source for sending me that! Like those kind of insider stories
