Truly Double sided LCD from Sumsung

  • Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd announced that it has created the first LCD panel that can produce independent images on each side of a mobile LCD display.
  • Samsung's new double-sided LCD can show two entirely different pictures or sets of visual data simultaneously on the front and back of the same screen unlike other conventional double-sided LCDs those can only show a reverse image of the same video data.
  • This new development will replace two display panels with one, thereby reducing overall thickness of mobile products by at least 1mm.
  • The new Samsung mobile display requires only one backlight, while competitive double-screen LCDs require two.
  • One side of the panel operates in a transmissive mode, while the other operates in a reflective mode.
  • The double-sided, dual image LCD's efficient use of light to display images in both transmissive and reflective modes promotes slimmer, more cost-effective products.
  • The new double-sided LCD is 2.6mm thick and 2.22" wide, with QVGA (240 x 320 pixel) resolution, and has brightness values of 250 nits for the front and 100 nits for the rear display.
