Samsung partners with Universal Display

Samsung Mobile Display, which is Samsung Electronics and Samsung SDI, says it’s had that golden handshake with US-based, Nasdaq listed Universal Display Corp. AMOLED display is the goal.

Samsung really wants to get in on AMOLED first. It believes the partnership with Universal Display will send it on its merry way to trounce other display manufacturers with similarly lofty goals.

The South Korean lot reckon the partnership will really help drive progress in AMOLED.

Marketwatch reports that Universal Display has a range of patents for OLED panels, including relating to materials which can increase both brightness and energy efficiency. It has patents on the phosphorescent materials you need in the panels. 

As AMOLED is touted to be the next big thing, edging in on LCD territory, Samsung must think Universal has enough in its roster to make the strategic alliance a goer.

Together, Samsung said in a statement, the two have developed advanced AMOLED materials.
