AOU OLED
OLED with 2560x1440 pixels coming to your phone

Samsung has been beaten at their own game. Many had expected the Galaxy S5 to sport an OLED display with 2560x1440 pixels, but it turns out that AUO will instead be first to market with such as display, paving the way for other manufacturers to introduce phones with such as display.

LCD panels are moving toward much pixel higher resolutions, but it will not be long before OLED technology catches up in this area. AU Optronics – a display panel maker – has unveiled a 5.7-inch OLED display with 2560x1440 pixel resolution.

The display is targeted for smartphones and will deliver 513 ppi (pixels per inch) density - well above what most people believe to be the upper limit for the human eye. However, pixel resolution continues to be a selling point for Android phone makers, and as AOU is supplying panels for – among others - HTC and Sony they could very likely beat Samsung to market.

AUO has also unveiled curved 4K TV panels from 42 to 65 inch sizes, which means that other TV makers can follow in Samsung’s footsteps if they wish to do so. In addition, AUO plans to produce two 27 and 32-inch curved LCD panels for PC monitors

One of AUO’s biggest customers of TV panels is Sony.
