CHART OF THE DAY: Samsung’s Massive Marketing Budget

See on Scoop.itDaily Content Highlights

This is how it became the world’s biggest smartphone company.


Another great  chart from Horace Dediu at Asymco. He looks at the advertising budget of Apple, Samsung, HP, Dell, Microsoft, and  Coke. Why include Coke? Because it’s a huge advertiser, and its “primary cost of  sales is advertising.”

As you can see, Samsung is blowing all the companies away in advertising and  marketing.

Not a bad price to pay, if it means you get to become the world’s  biggest smartphone company. Certainly  HTC wishes it had Samsung’s marketing budget.

Samsung Increases Display Resolution to 350ppi

Samsung Display succeeded in boosting the screen resolution of AM OLED by means of fine metal mask (FMM) technology.

In doing so, the display panel manufacturer veered from laser-induced thermal imaging (LITI), an alternative technology it had focused its R&D efforts on. Experts are paying attention to whether the new technique will be able to fully resolve AM OLED’s resolution problem, its weakest point compared with the Retina Display of the iPhone.

According to industry sources, Samsung Display raised RGB stripe AM OLED’s resolution up to 350ppi in a lab test by using FMM technology. The figure is higher than that of iPhone4 at 326ppi.

FMM technology is used to deposit pixels on a substrate. A metal mask with small grooves is placed on the substrate and then sprayed with an organic substance.

Dupont OLED Printing Process

In May 2010 Dupont announced that they reached the goal to print a 50 inch OLED-Tv in under two minutes. In October 2011 Duponts announced that the company has signed a technology licensing agreement for that technology with a leading Asian manufacturer of Active Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diode display products. We think that it can be Samsung or LG-Display but at the moment it is not clear and not official. Duponts suggest that OLED is the next generation display technology which requires fewer components than LCDs and can utilize existing LCD infrastructure for as much as 30 percent overall cost savings.

Solution Process AMOLED Technology
How we can reach the goal to produce cheap OLED-Television device for the consumer market?
To reduce the manufacturing costs Dupont has developed a proprietary solution based printing technology that efficiently dispenses liquid OLED materials.

AMOLED television market is projected to grow to over $5 billion by 2017.

What about the lifetime?
Printed lifetimes are quoted at subpixel luminances that simulate 200-nit FOS white brightness. Even for blue, the most challenging color, lifetime exceeds 30,000 hours and should be sufficient for many display applications, including OLED TV.

Benefits of DuPont solution process:

  • Lower material and equipment cost
  • Scalable to larger glass size

Low cost manufacturing scheme attributes:

  • Use of inexpensive common layers
  • Increase throughput and yield by limiting the number
    of patterned layers
  • No fine shadowmasks

Balancing performance and cost:

  • Common layers optimized for overall performance of
    panel, not individual color

Flexible Screen Samsung – Toshiba

I think that we all know that the future is going to be bendable displays, and two big companies, Samsung and Toshiba, have their screens in the spotlight recently.

I’ll start with the one from Toshiba, pictured here to the left. It measures at about 3 inches on the diagonal, and it is only 0.1 mm thin. It was made with an oxide semiconductor TFT to a plastic substrate at 200 degrees Celsius. This makes it light at one gram, and it can also retain image quality over a long period of time.

As for the Samsung foldable AMOLED display, there is a picture of that after the jump. It has two panels with a closing radius of about 1 mm which means that they “practically touch when closed, yet show no visible crease when opened”. In fact, the developers performed about 100,000 folding and unfolding motions, and it decreases in brightness of 6 percent, which was not that visible.

Samsung demoed some fascinating AMOLEDs at this year’s CES, including 4.5-inch flexible and 19-inch transparent displays — neither of which, sadly, will reach the market any time soon. But the innovation train keeps on rolling, and Sammy’s Advanced Institute of Technology now has a prototype foldable display, which may or may not be the same reference design spotted at FPD 2008. Its two panels have a closing radius of only 1mm, meaning they practically touch when closed, yet show no visible crease when opened. In fact, the developers performed 100,000 folding-unfolding cycles to test the junction; the negligible 6% decrease in brightness was invisible to the human eye. They used commercially-available silicone rubber to achieve that seamless look, and the prototype featured a protective glass cover which could also function as a touchscreen. Obviously there’s a market for touchscreens you can fold up and put in your pocket; here’s hoping Samsung can make them available sooner rather than later.

Foldable OLED in 2012 ??

“In another year, you will see the screen can bend, folding mobile phones; another 3-4 years, paperthin TV screen will” stick “on the wall.” The father of OLED DengQingYun the day before yesterday, American academy of engineering in Shanghai university lecture, described the future electronic products of the beauty, and this should be attributed to a derived from his invention of the OLED technology.

OLED than thinner more clear, LCD and curly

A 63-year-old DengQingYun was born in Hong Kong, the United States is professor of the university of rochester, DengQingYun come this, Shanghai accept Shanghai university awarded “honorary doctoral degree, and doing the organic electronic glow of the past, present and future” speech.

People are using mobile phone more clear, it is in display technology development. DengQingYun took out his cell phone – the adopted technology of OLED screen color beautiful, clear, “black is black, white is white, and the screen white and black high-contrast, and colour sense of white and black are exactly the same.”

DengQingYun explained that OLED Chinese meaning for organic light-emitting diodes. This technique of birth and history many important scientific discovery, as the result of a “accidents” : the 1979 day evening, DengQingYun on my way home suddenly remind of something left in the laboratory, and had to turn turn-back. Return to the laboratory, he found the darkness has a light thing, open lamp, turned out to be a battery in doing the experiment of organic light-emitting. He unfolded of OLED 30-year persistence study.

DengQingYun in 1987 published first article organic film electroluminescent articles, and successfully developed the first batch of OLED devices. He is regarded as an inventor of OLED and OLED is also recognized as a new generation of flat panel display technology. DengQingYun introduced that OLED is a based on organic film illuminated screen technology, on the energy requirements are very low. LCD is now our most common LCD, device structure is relatively complex, by more than 10 levels of each level is responsible for expansion, a display of a certain properties, such as brightness, perspective, etc., and only three layer structure of OLED.

OLED with LCD incomparable advantages, such as ultra-thin, thickness only 1 millimeter; Ultra light, Wide Angle, The self-illumination don’t need background illuminant, when is energized, these organic materials will autologous light. Refresh rate is LCD 1,000 times, Hd, Low energy consumption, Manufacturing cost is low; Can realize flexible display, namely the screen can be curly.

Large scale application depends on the development of the manufacturing process

DengQingYun said, now is the small screen of mobile phones, digital cameras, has adopted OLED technology, big screen display application depends on the development of the manufacturing process. He broadcast a section, there are two video video phone with a hammer knock, a cellular phone screen instantly fall apart, and another phone intact, and the latter is OLED screen, more magical technology, this cellular phone screen is very thin, optional, can resemble roll bending of a sheet of paper, roll up. DengQingYun discloses, south Korean companies already in research and manufacture this phone, estimates that next year will come out.

OLED is after all new developed technology, still face many technical problems, including the main problem is short life. Currently popular mobile applications to display materials, the working life of the demand is not high, and television application was different. DengQingYun tells a reporter, OLED material life has greatly ascend, and was put into large screen applications.

For cost, DengQingYun thinks, with process maturity and the manufacturer of OLED line the increase of the input, and the manufacturing cost will drop quickly. But in the long run, because OLED screen no back light, no special polarization of the film, the device number far less LCD, lower the cost of great potential.

Chinese enterprises in OLED fields as South Korea and other countries layout speed of electronic giant, especially in large size screens fields. But in recent year, Shanghai has a flat technology as strategic industry. DengQingYun also remind, China OLED large-scale industrialization has yet to start, it depends on the government investment, need manufacturing, material and related industry together with many industrial chain.
