  • Future iPhone and Netbooks to Sport OLED Displays Designed by LG!?!


    An Australian Magazine reports that Apple has entered into a multi-billion dollar deal with LG to supply OLED screens for future use.

    It’s also believed that a new iPhone and iPod Touch due later this year will include an OLED screen made by LG who last year scored a multibillion dollar deal to manufacture display screens for Apple.
    Apple currently uses the LED screen which sucks a lot of battery as well compared to OLED which requires no backlight. This would be a really nice move to counter the iPhone 3G battery issues. It would also help with the new 3.0 battery consuming features such as PUSH notification.

    I believe we can expect the rumored netbooks and future iPhone/ iPod Touch models to sport an OLED due to apple's infatuation with the latest.

      Infatuation with the latest? Like USB 2.0?

      Would be nice to see better battery life out of our non-replaceable batteries for sure!

      It's about time we see real world use of OLED's

      Does that mean I can have it on the maximum brightness and still have bettery battery life than my phone right now?
      I have it on minimum and only get 4 hours of use

      If I can't buy a new OLED TV because they are crazy expensive $$$ then it would be nice to at least have one in my pocket

      I usually keep 3G off on my "iPhone 3G" would be nice to have a counter balance for sure!

      From that same wiki article:

      Disadvantages

      The biggest technical problem for OLEDs is the limited lifetime of the organic materials.[35] In particular, blue OLEDs historically have had a lifetime of around 14,000 hours (5 years at 8 hours a day) when used for flat-panel displays, which is lower than typical lifetime of LCD, LED or PDP technology—each currently rated for about 60,000 hours, depending on manufacturer and model. Toshiba and Panasonic have come up with a way to solve this problem with a new technology that can double the lifespan of OLED displays, pushing its expected life past that of LCD displays.[36] A metal membrane helps deliver light from polymers in the substrate throughout the glass surface more efficiently than current OLEDs. The result is the same picture quality with half the brightness and a doubling of the screen's expected life.[37]


      Don't know how I feel about the OLEDs now. But this can't be the material they'll be using in the next iPhones that we rumor to come out in a couple of months. Can it?

      Nice one. Now, we know both the advantages and disadvantages. Maybe, LG has some ways to overcome the problems...

      You sound like a whiny little punk. Apple deserves your respect. So bow down.

      That would be a pretty fast move.lol I tell you what show me the finished product and give me the final price then we'll say how good of a thing this is. :-)

      Note: I enjoyed the cool blue screen of the original Iphone over the warm yellow tint of the 3G. I'm sure this will make a change of some sorts. Red? Orange?.lol IDK!

      Why not? If it's put into the new iPhone, I doubt I'll be using my iPhone 8 hours for many days, and even if I do, 5 years is more than enough time to use it. I just got my iPhone 3G 6 months ago and I'm getting the new iPhone if and when it comes out this summer. I will never keep a phone that long, so 5 years really isn't a problem. Besides, with people dropping the iPhone and all, the phone will most likely break before the screen gives out.

      I think most people won't keep their phone for more than a year.

      lol, I don't think I've ever used a phone for longer than 2 years... I guess I don't see the OLED only lasting 5 years as a huge disadvantage, unless the manufacturing and decomposing processes kill babies or something.

      LMFAO!!!

      Exactly. I don't see 5 years as a disadvantage at all. I got my very first cell phone 5 years ago, and since then, I've had 7 phones. If I still owned my very first phone now (and it miraculously still worked) it's about time to get a new phone anyway. ;]

      Cool. So an OLED screen is better than an LED screen. I'm not really bothered about the life of OLED as I change my iPhone every two years. I just hope I have enough money left over to buy it after buying PSP-4000 in July also

      The new iPhone also has faster Internet speeds. According to iClarified.

      That Wiki artical is out of date. 5 years life span was at the "start" of consumer OLED technology. It has since improved to over 10 years. More than enough time for a cell phone. Rememer, Wiki is NOT an accurate source of up to date information or specs on new technology.

      Also when OLED is perfected it will be produced my simply printing the diodes on a surface with an inkjet style printer(not a consumer one obviously).

      It's nice to see Apple fronting money to invest in a new tech. It's expensive at first, but OLED with it's simple production and minimal materials will become a fraction of the price of LCD

      as long as it produces a high quality product for a cheap price who cares

      LG and Philips both join to mass produce lcd screen and others. Almost all of the screen is made by them. LG had this technology from long time and they have improved it alot!!!! I would know as I go to S. Korea every year to look at the feature technology.
      PS. LG and samsung and much more is Korean company.

      OLED? Beaten by the Samsung Tocco Ultra due any day in the UK

      They have come to market a lot quicker than I expected so it is a possibility for the new iPhone
