HTC Offering SLCD in Addition to AMOLED Displays for Handsets [UPDATE]

HTC has announced it will be abandoning the AMOLED screens currently used in the Nexus One and HTC Desire.  As a replacement, HTC will introduce SLCD screens to its manufacturing  process later this summer.  See the full press release below.

UPDATE: HTC wrote in to clarify their statement.  We’ve since adusted the title of the post.  Thank you, HTC!

HTC isn’t necessarily  ‘dumping’ AMOLED screens, but rather introducing SLCD into the mix. Both screen types will be used going forward.  Having more than one option available should help to ensure demands are met for these awesome devices!

HTC Introduces SLCD Display Technology To Its Portfolio

New Displays to be integrated into HTC Desire and Nexus One

Taoyuan, TAIWAN – July 26, 2010 – HTC Corporation, a global designer of smartphones, today introduced Super LCD display (SLCD) technology into a variety of HTC phones including the HTC Desire and global Nexus One later this summer. The SLCD display offers an exceptional natural balanced colour, clear contrast, broad viewing angles and improved power efficiency.

“HTC is experiencing high-demand for many of our phones, specifically our phones with 3.7 inch displays. The new SLCD display technology enables us to ramp up our production capabilities quickly to meet the high-demand,” said Peter Chou, CEO of HTC Corporation. “The SLCD displays provide consumers with a comparable visual experience to HTC’s current 3.7 inch displays with some additional benefits including battery performance.”

SLCD is the latest generation of LCD technology that offers improved performance from earlier LCD panels including approximately five times better power management. SLCDs also offer an enhanced viewing experience with wider viewing angles that are enabled by Sony’s new VSPEC III™ technology.

    Google just said they aren't selling the N1 themselves. Vodafone will be selling it, and someday it might be available to developers through a partner.
