HTC, who is set to launch their Wildfire phone in Australia next month, has confirmed that it will update the HTC Desire and the Nexus One, HTC manufactured Smartphone with Super LCD (SLCD) display technology following moves by Samsung to corner the market for AMOLED screens similar to the one found in the new Galaxy S.
According to HTC sources a shortage of OLED screens forced the Taiwanese company to look for alternate suppliers.
“HTC is experiencing high-demand for many of our phones, specifically our phones with 3.7 inch displays, said Peter Chou, CEO of HTC Corporation. “The new SLCD display technology enables us to ramp up our production capabilities quickly to meet the high-demand. 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.”
Power management and wider viewing angels aside, a comparable performance and plentiful supply means that the company can make more handsets.
