Samsung runs out of SUPER AMOLEDs and halted top Galaxy S and Wave production simply because All Super AMOLED displays have been bought by Apple


We’ve got some interesting piece of news coming from Moscow Russia today, from Mobile-review’s editor Eldar Murtazin.



According to him , the Samsung Galaxy S and Samsung Wave S8500 are no longer in production anymore, because Samsung has not enough super AMOLED screens left.
The Wave should be replaced with a new model that features a bigger, Super TFT screen, while all its other features will remain the same.This will enable poorer screen to be compensated by more size and not force samsung to decrease the cost of phone

As for the Galaxy S, it’s said that Samsung doesn’t have any ready substitute for it at the moment, although the smart phone “contract carrier versions” ( meaning the Vibrant, Captivate, and Fascinate) will still continue to be in production “due to contract obligations.”

Assuming this is true how could have Samsung ran out of Super AMOLED displays.Answer from Eldar Murtazin is that Apple may have bought “all the vast quantities of Super AMOLEDs for 2011.” Of course, this is only a rumor, and I don’t think there’s any bit of truth in it. Apple won’t give up on its proven Retina Display for i Phone 4, especially when most if not all reviewers said it is one of the best displays ever included in a smartphone.

Sure enough, Apple may have bought all AMOLED displays for its future i Pads coming next summer, but that still doesn’t make much sense: why would Samsung not use one of its best technologies in its own products, and instead sell it to a rival company.May be apple is paying them heavily. Or this news could be fake. But seeing the shortage of Wave and galaxy in Asia the news seems true.

Maybe halted the production untill they have more displays, ending the production of theirnmost successfull smart and semismartphones just makes absolutely no sense!

This could be very true. (Super) AMOLED screens are trickier to produce than common LCD screens. Also, there aren't that many factories that produce AMOLED screens. It's possible that Samsung isn't able to suffice the high demand of Super AMOLED displays.

This also happened to HTC Desire. HTC was not able to supply enough AMOLED screens for their Desire, so they decided to use sLCD displays instead.

Also note that Samsung is (as far as I know) the only manufacturer that produces AMOLED screens.

Yes i thnik so , too .
I think apple just bought them to kill the "marketing" .
I mean , why should they buy superamoled displays AFTER they released their apple iphone 4 ? .

The only question is ..
What is apple going to do with these superamoled displays ? Roll Eyes

Maybe mac or something like that Roll Eyes ?

actually the production of wave 1 s8500 has been halted, due to this amoled shortage. now for them to still sell the wave, they made a lcd version of it with slightly bigger screen (does they think the size would make up for the lack of super amoled?) so that they can still sell the wave.

according to some rumors, Apple would make use of these amoled screens with their Iphone 5 and future ipads.

for samsung, they'll be making a factory of amoled so that they will supply their own brand with this screens in the future
