    Oled expanding into Mid Range Phones

    by qtmmnutcase Oct 22, 2014 12:03 AM slickdis1 Oct 22, 2014 3:31 AM Flag

    Very good news. Admittedly I had no idea how many phones Samsung sells in China but a very quick Google search revealed an article from Feb.2014 which says "Samsung tops in China for smartphone sales last year, with Apple ranked fifth". More Googling showed that Samsung was set back to a very sizable second place Summer of this year.

    From my understanding, China prefers cheaper (sub $200) lower spec phones. Clearly Samsung wants to keep their foothold in China, and it's a very good thing AMOLED is now part of the mid and low range game across the sea.

    The increased revenue stream may pick up any slack in Q4, and (wishfully) maybe even lead to a guidance raise in Q3.

  • Here's the link (if it doesn't get filtered):

    - Not a lot of details on any website
    - Key marketing point so far is that it's "over 2 days of battery life with regular use"
    - Another key marketing point is that it can "sync with all platforms" (as in mobile OSs)
    - No mention of any specific hardware tech
    - May be more of a "fitness band" than a smartwatch

    I'm posting this because if the device IS a smartwatch, it would be interesting if it was not OLED. Unless the smartwatch has a very powerful battery (unlikely given you can only pack so much lithium into such a small space), or that MS has severely limited the processing power (which could very well be the case), I'd say there's a good chance it's an OLED screen allowing the great battery life. Of course this is hoping the device is more than a sum if its rumours at the moment.

    For reference, all current smartwatches on the market barely scrape by a day without need a recharge.

    Personally I think its platform agnostic feature can make the device the most popular smartwatch yet, unlike the silliness of the Andorid/iOS only compatibility business model from current smartwatch makers.

    In any case, MS jumping on board with OLED can be quite a powerful boon to the OLED tech as a whole. Again, it's pure speculation on my part if the MS smartwatch is OLED, but I think there's a fair chance.

    Tomorrow's Trade....

    It's mildly upsetting. I too, didn't think this would happen, because all Apple had to say was "OLED" and we're up 10-20% in a day, then starts a very long run up. Instead they didn't want to swallow their pride and instead said "Flexible Retina" and the ignorant traders - probably the ones that helped pushed the share price this high to be honest - all bailed at once. It makes sense why Apple didn't say OLED (as others have posted already, that would be admitting their iPhones are not up to snuff), but it is what it is.

    Reports are trickling out that the iWatch is OLED, which is good, but I doubt the share price will give us our 7% back tomorrow. I ended up losing 10K in the short term, but the long term story is still true so I don't really consider it a "loss". Just another delay until we all make it to where we want to be with this stock.

    What I find unfortunate the most is that 2014 was supposed to be "the year" for OLED, but that's been pushed back to 2015. On the flip side (the fortunate side) is that we know Apple is adopting OLED on its iWatch, will more than likely unify all their next generation devices, plus we have all the TV production lines and additional manufactures all poised for 2015. LG, Samsung, Phillips, Dell, Konica, etc. are all on the boat.

    Nothing to be worried about IMO.
