Samsung's brighter cellphone LCD technology

samsung logoSamsung, never content with their cellphone technology (yeah they're the ones with hard drives, a 5 megapixel camera, and VGA screens), has developed a new chip for phones which increases brightness by 50%. The LCD Driver IC does VGA (640 by 480) resolution using their proprietary "4 Color Rendering" and will be used in their higher-end handsets in 2005. We admit, we've resorted to using our cellphone as a flashlight when the power goes out, so we'll be armed with this come next year.
