Samsung presented its new Super PLS technology, a new type of screen for mobile devices that promises better viewing angles and 10 percent higher brightness than IPS panels. Interestingly, Samsung also claims that these new screens have a 15 percent lower production cost than comparable IPS screens. The company wants to start mass production of Super PLS panels by early 2011.
PLS stands for Plane to Line Switching, which helps Samsung deliver some pretty spectacular viewing angles -- even better than the already stellar ones you'll find on IPS panels -- while also improving screen brightness by a reported 10 percent. The target market for Super PLS displays will be smartphones and tablets, with a delicious WXGA resolution on offer for the top bidders.
