Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd has announced that it has developed a 1.98-inch LCD panel with VGA resolution, touted to be the industry's first such product, using the company's amorphous silicon technology. Mobile phones equipped with this display will be able to show Windows screens and documents with the same VGA quality that is provided by most desktop or notebook PCs, the company said.

The 1.98-inch VGA LCD is a transmissive LCD with liquid crystals that provide a wide viewing angle. The images are bright (250 nit) and clean (contrast ratio of 300 to 1). It is suited for mobile products that require high picture quality.

Samsung said the user will be able to enjoy the best quality mobile TV images, with delineation of visual details as small as 63μm?half the average width of a human hair (120μm). A typical 40-inch HD LCD TV has 40 pixels per square inch, while the 1.98-inch LCD panel has 10 times as many, or 400ppi.

Samsung said it has achieved a wide range of technology improvements in the development of its 1.98-inch VGA LCD. The company's proprietary, amorphous silicon gates are built into the LCD panel to achieve maximum efficiency in design and module processing. Samsung also has achieved 1.6 crore (16 million) colours, the company said, and the LCD can accommodate the extremely fast data transmission rates required today.
