SAMSUNG Electronics Mass Produces 1.8-inch TFT-LCDs for Mobile Phones

Samsung Electronics’ TFT-LCD lineup is mainly focused on notebook PC and desktop monitor models today, but the company is expanding into the mid-sized and small models, with special focus in the LCD TV and mobile phone segments.

The 2-inch amorphous silicon TFT-LCDs is in development to complement the 1.8-inch model currently going into mass production. Commercialization of the new models is scheduled for next year. Samsung is also working on applying low-temperature poly-silicon, reflective LCD and other technologies to satisfy demands for a wide variety of markets.

Along with the mass production of 1.8-inch screens, the company is also supplying 5-inch screens for Sony’s Playstation. For small and mid-sized screens alone Samsung is expecting sales to account up to over 1 million pieces this year. In 2002, Samsung Electronics aims to turn out around 4 million of the small and mid-sized TFT-LCDs (the majority of which will be for mobile phones), a fourfold increase over this year.
