That's what I'm saying though ... the fact there isn't a color filter means a higher % of the backlight is coming through ... which is why I'd expect black levels will suffer. It's also, I suspect, why we don't see actual TV's using them. For a phone, accuracy isn't exactly the primary concern. You want something bright that does white well.
As for not needing to be the same size, I'm asking isn't that part of the IQ issue? Doesn't that cause even more aliasing than just using the checkerboard layout?
I guess this discussion is kind of moot since we don't even know what layout this uses? Or has it been confirmed? Here's a diagram of what LG/Kodak did:http://www.oled-display.net/backgrou...tv-technology/
It appears to be a traditional horizontal pixel layout ... not pentile.
Here are the claimed benefits versus a traditional all PHOLED RGB AMOLED
- No more Yellow push
- Even Color wear
- 100,000 hr. lifetime
- Exceeds television standards for color gamut
- Power consumption 50% that of AMOLED tech
- Easier/Cheaper to manufacture via Kodaks printing process
Do you think Sharp would have been better off embedding white pixel instead of the ridicules yellow (even though it did improve energy effichency).
Maybe - assuming I'm wrong about black levels. While it's cool they can increase the gamut using a secondary, there isn't anything that uses it (other than some camcorders) ... broadcasts and recorded media don't. So why bother since it appears to mess up color accuracy?
As a side note - Quattrons actually use a traditional horizontal pixel layout, not pentile. So there's no reason to assume the LG has to use pentile.
