HTC chooses Super LCD display for new Desire batch

HTC move to Sony Super LCD displays following AMOLED availability delays

HTC has announced that plans to ship the new Sony-made Super LCD screens on the latest batch of HTC Desire handsets in light of shortages of the current AMOLED technology displays.

According to the Taiwanese company, it will make the transition to SLCD screens later this summer on a number of high-end devices that will include the HTC produced Google Nexus One and the formidable iPhone challenger, the HTC Desire.

A HTC spokesman confirmed to T3 that it does not plan to scrap the use of AMOLED tech, but is making the switch as a temporary measure in order to meet huge demands for the Desire.

Determined not to scrap the exquisite quality found in the current breed of AMOLED displays, HTC CEO, Peter Chou has been keen to stress that SLCD meets the company’s high quality standards: “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.”

Talking on the need to move to SLCD, Chou added: “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.”

Created by Sony, the SLCD displays are said to offer wider viewing angles than their AMOLED counterparts. However, despite HTC’s claims of improved battery life with the new SLCD displays, AMOLED screens actually use less power.
