Samsung has announced plans to release a line of phones through KDDI Japan which will have AMOLED (Active Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diode) displays. This technology has been in the works by various companies, yet this is the first of these phones being mass-produced, going beyond the concept stage.
Japan always gets lucky with this cool new technology, though once a full-scale product is released, you can expect other companies to follow in their footsteps. We’ll most likely see AMOLED phone screens in the U.S. sometime next year I would think. — Andrew Dobrow
