According to an analysis done by IHS Technology, AMOLED screen production cost is now lower than that of LCD screens. Production costs in the first quarter of the year for a 5" 1080p display amount to $14.30 for an AMOLED panel compared to $14.60 for an LCD one.
However, it's yet to see if this trend will keep on. In Q4 2015, an AMOLED panel cost $17.10 to make, while an LCD one was cheaper at $15.70. IHS notes that the numbers apply for the production cost of a LTPS LCD (Low Temperature Poly-Silicon Liquid Crystal Display), which is the most efficient type of TFT LCD.
Provided this trend keeps up, we could very well see a surge in smartphone makers choosing AMOLED screens for their mid-range models.
We can't help but remind you of this excellent video done by Samsung, in which the company explains the technology behind AMOLED screens.
Your personal noob-like opinion doesn't matter when we have hard specky proof right here. http://www.technobuffalo.com/2016/02/24/samsung-galaxy-s7-has-best-smartphone-display-tested-by-displaymate/http://www.technobuffalo.com/2016/02/24/samsung...
JDI and Joled will become the leading display maker in the future.
There is no such thing as JDI buying out Joled.
