Galaxy Tab Will Use Super TFT, Not AMOLED for Screen

Posted by at 11:07 pm on September 6, 2010

Samsung today attempted to explain why they have chosen to fit  their tablet with an LCD instead of its vaunted AMOLED technology, as featured on its Galaxy S smartphones.

Samsung was quick to criticize Apple’s Retina Display  technological. Among Samsung’s claims at the time was that an AMOLED display uses 30 percent less power than an equivalent LCD-based display.

But  in a video conference today at IFA, Samsung argued that it chose Super TFT for the Galaxy Tab because it used less power than an equivalent 7-inch AMOLED display, while also citing lower manufacturing costs for the decision to use Super TFT

The news that Samsung has opted out of using AMOLED for its Galaxy Tab follows recent news that HTC is dropping Samsung’s AMOLED display technology in favor of Sony produced Super TFT panels.
