A HTC confirmou hoje rumores de que abandonaria a preferência pelas telas AMOLED que vinha usando em seus telefones Desire e Nexus One, passando a preferir as telas de "Super LCD", que não enfrentam problemas de disponibilidade.

Admitindo publicamente que a "alta demanda" por telas AMOLED a levou a trocar de fornecedor, a HTC disse que as telas SLCD permitirão à fabricante dar um gás na produção para ajudar a suprir a crescente demanda pela sua linha de smartphones Android. Anúncio original a seguir. [HTC]

New Displays to be integrated into HTC Desire and Nexus One

HTC Introduces SLCD Display Technology To Its Portfolio

Taoyuan, TAIWAN – July 26, 2010 – HTC Corporation, a global designer of smartphones, today introduced Super LCD display (SLCD) technology into a variety of HTC phones including the HTC Desire and global Nexus One later this summer. The SLCD display offers an exceptional natural balanced colour, clear contrast, broad viewing angles and improved power efficiency.

"HTC is experiencing high-demand for many of our phones, specifically our phones with 3.7 inch displays. The new SLCD display technology enables us to ramp up our production capabilities quickly to meet the high-demand," said Peter Chou, CEO of HTC Corporation. "The SLCD displays provide consumers with a comparable visual experience to HTC’s current 3.7 inch displays with some additional benefits including battery performance."

SLCD is the latest generation of LCD technology that offers improved performance from earlier LCD panels including approximately five times better power management. SLCDs also offer an enhanced viewing experience with wider

viewing angles that are enabled by Sony’s new VSPEC III™ technology.
