KDDI 800x480 OLED

KDDI at the CEATEC technology expo today showed two displays that promise to significantly improve the quality of cellphones and other handhelds. A Samsung-made, 3.1-inch display both uses OLED to improve its color accuracy, thinness and the battery life of the attached device but also displays an 800x480 picture. Such resolution is high enough to support viewing some DVD resolution video without shedding pixels and results in near print-quality text.

A second display from an unnamed Japanese manufacturer shares the same resoluion in LCD form but offers the still-rare feature of 3D visuals. By creating parallax-effect stripes that divide the image into sections viewable with either the left or right eyes alone, the three-inch panel creates a sense of depth absent from a normal image visible with either eye. The effect is lag-free and converts 2D images into 3D on the fly.

In contrast to most such prototypes, both displays have more concrete production plans. Samsung's display is set to launch as part of an unnamed device with KDDI in the near future; the 3D LCD will reach a tangible product before the end of 2009. Samsung's panel isn't described as a KDDI exclusive and is likely to reach other products. [via Tech-On]
