Qualcomm Inc. subsidiary Qualcomm MEMS Technologies Inc. and LG Electronics Inc. have agreed to start the development of mirasol-enabled handsets.

Under the agreement, Qualcomm MEMS Technologies and LG Electronics each commit resources to integrate mirasol displays into one or more LG handsets intended for commercial release.

"With the display's low-power capabilities, LG can see how our customers could be able to take advantage of sophisticated mobile applications for longer periods of time and view it across a range of lighting environments," said DooWhan Sang, vice president of LG Electronics.

The nature-inspired mirasol display consumes significantly less power than other display technologies, extending handset battery life and enabling consumers to enjoy greater mobility. Based on reflective technology, Qualcomm's mirasol displays harness ambient light to create colour across a broad range of lighting conditions, including direct sunlight.
