AMOLED panels now cheaper to make than LCD

Posted on Friday, March 25 2016 @ 13:54:30 CET by

Slashdot reports AMOLED is about to get a big boost in adoption in the smartphone market as its production cost has fallen below that of LCD.

In many areas, AMOLED displays should be superior to LCD as the technology can offer better colors, better contrast, better saturation, higher brightness, better energy efficiency and a thinner design. In real life, this is not always the case though and one of the major downsides of AMOLED is that the screens suffer from burn in, which can manifest itself via yellow/brown marks on the display.
As predicted two years ago, it has only taken 24 months for AMOLED production costs to fall below that of LCD. Production costs in the first quarter for a 5-inch Full HD smartphone display are $14.30 for an AMOLED panel and $14.60 for an LCD display. In the fourth quarter of 2015, these figures were $17.10 and $15.70, respectively. [...] With AMOLED production costs dropping below LCD for the first time, AMOLED panels will soon become the default display technology choice for manufacturers on their mid-range and entry-level devices as well.
