Samsung has taken the wraps off what they claim to to be the world's first 3-inch VGA LCD that meets industry standards for use in digital cameras. With a 300nit brightness and 350:1 contrast ration, the 640 x 480 LCD also promises to consume less power than displays currently used in digital cameras, operating on a 30Hz source driver instead of the 60Hz commonly used now, as well as employing a so-called "dot inversion scheme" that reduces flickering associated with 30Hz LCDs. We're assuming the water is intended to show how sharp the image is, not that it's waterproof, but you never know. Commercial production is set to begin in the first half of 2007.
