Samsung 3.3-inch AMOLED Touch Panels to be Mass Produced

Samsung AMOLED Touch phoneYou know that layer of nothing in between the touch-sensing glass and the display on your phone? Well Samsung is about to push it aside with the company's new 3.3-inch WVGA AMOLED touchscreen which is set to be released in March.

You may be wondering how this all works. Well, touchscreen products were typically made by separately connecting the display and the touch panel. What Samsung has done is placed a touch sensor (on-cell) over the mirror display and evaporated it. This creates a 0.001mm thick touch sensor providing the user with a screen capable of creating more clear, high-quality images.

This process marks the first time a touch sensor has been placed over an AMOLED substrate. Adding to this, Samsung has said that they will mass produce this product starting in March with their 3.3-inch WVGA (480x800) resolution AMOLED. A representative from Samsung stated that "Through mass production, we want to make this touch embedded AMOLED panel number one in the LCD and AMOLED market. Also, we want to mass produce touch screens and construct a system so that we can expand the display market."

If everything goes according to Samsung's plans, the company should be giving us lighter and thinner phones with better touchscreens as soon as March. This could be a huge step forward in the touchscreen market but it looks like we will have to wait about a month to see what happens.
