Sony Mobile has used TFT displays in every Android Xperia smartphone produced to date. However, a report from China Times suggests that Sony will look to launch its first Xperia smartphone using a 4.3-inch AMOLED panel by the end of the year.
AU Optronics (AUO) will be ramping up production of these displays during Q2 2012 with shipments to Sony during H2 2012. So what do we know about these displays? Well according to a recent interview with TechOn, they will have a pixel density of between 250-300 PPI with a priority on vividness of colour and response speed.
To be honest, we’ve always liked the TFT displays that Sony has used, most have decent clarity in sunlight and we haven’t been subject to the Pentile panels of other AMOLED displays which can impact text legibility on lower resolution displays. However, the benefits of an AMOLED screen are numerous and includes better energy efficiency and contrast although colours can tend to be over saturated.
Thanks adsada and Wael!
