Samsung cracks 350 ppi OLEDs

Getting ready for next-generation OLED display production forms a major focus for big screen manufacturers. Now Samsung is reported to have perfected 350 pixels-per-inch (ppi) technology using its Fine Metal Mesh high-density concept. If the report is validated, it means Samsung has ‘beaten’ Apple’s current ‘Retina’ displays which manage a quite superb 326 ppi display in the latest Apple devices.

Samsung’s 350 ppi units will probably be first seen in smartphones, and then PCs.

However, large-screen OLEDs are the ‘Holy Grail’ for future TV set production, especially with the promise of QUAD-TV and Ultra-HDTV down the line. Samsung’s South Korea rival LG is known to be working on a 60” flexible OLED (although possibly not with 350 pixels/inch) for introduction by 2017.

However, it is also fair to say that at levels above 300 ppi, it is claimed the human eye cannot discern an improvement.
