You see that ultra crisp iPhone 4S display in your hand? That has a pixel density of 326 pixels-per-inch (PPI). Well, according to a report out of South Korea today, Samsung has managed to develop an organic light emitting diode (OLED) display that has a sharper 350 pixels-per-inch pixel density.
That could potentially mean that we’ll see new smartphones and tablets from Samsung with sharper and more colorful displays than what’s currently available on most mobile devices. Samsung’s current flagship, the Galaxy S III, has an HD Super AMOLED screen with a pixel density of 306 ppi, for example.
According to ETNews, Samsung managed to create the screens using a Final Metal Mask (FMM). We’re not exactly sure what that is, but it’s appears to be an alternative to Samsung’s typical LITI process.
We’re guessing this technology might be used in Samsung’s next-generation Galaxy S devices, which are probably not due to launch for a year or so. Who knows? Maybe we’ll see a sneak peek at the technology during the annual Consumer Electronics Show in January or Mobile World Congress in February.
