Samsung Starts Manufacturing 7 inch AMOLED Display Panels for Tablets

It is rumored that the Samsung has already begun the production of 7-inch AMOLED display panels. The panels support WSVGA resolution that means 1024 x 600 pixels. It comes with the Low-Voltage Differential Signaling (LVDS) display interface.

When comparing the brightness, the new AMOLED display panels with 400 nits are far better than the Galaxy Tab 7.7’s 250 nits. But don’t forget the latter offers a resolution of 1280 x 800.

Meanwhile, we also hear this 7-inch AMOLED display panels are prepared for the tablet PC manufacturers like Asus and Sony. Speculations are there that these companies will be using the AMOLED display panels in their coming tablet PC products. Remember, Sony has already used a 5-inch AMOLED screen for the PlayStation Vita gaming console.

We hope Samsung will reveal more details on a 7-inch AMOLED tablet at the Consumer Electronics Show this month. Sometimes, there could also be a chance of seeing the 7-inch AMOLED products from Asus or Sony at the event. Do you think this is this the next tablet in the Galaxy Tab line up?
