iWatch to Feature Flexible AMOLED Display and 3D Protective Glass?

Posted February 19, 2014 at 8:41pm by iClarified
Apple's rumored iWatch will feature a flexible AMOLED display and 3D protective glass, according to the China Times.

The publication reports that TPK has entered the iWatch supply chain but won't start mass production until the second half of this year, notes DigiTimes.

The report said the iWatch will come equipped with a flexible AMOLED display and 3D protective glass. The rumors also speculated that the iWatch will use silver nanowire touch screen technology developed by TPK in conjunction with Japan-based Nissha Printing.

Silver nanowire is new transparent conductor that is much more flexible, more electrically conductive, more optically transparent, and less expensive than the indium tin oxide (ITO) commonly used to make touch screens. More details on its benefits here.

Apple is widely expected to unveil its iWatch alongside new larger iPhones this fall. It will reportedly feature a sapphire glass display and built-in sensors that can monitor your fitness level and vital signs.

Hmmm... I thought Tim Cook said that AMOLED displays are crap.

Look who finally came to their senses to believe Tim, and by believe, you actually give a damn to hear his words, but still though you can't find where you heard it. Lol

You obviously don't pay attention to your beloved Tim Cook. Here you go: http://m.theinquirer.net/inquirer/news/2243290/tim-cook-takes-a-dig-at-samsung-with-talk-of-poor-amoled-screens http://www.forbes.com/sites/greatspeculations/2013/02/20/tim-cook-does-not-like-oled-but-spends-money-on-it/ I don't listen to Tim Cook I just happened to read an article elsewhere. I don't believe in what comes out of his mouth, the article also mentions him saying that they will never make a cheaper iPhone, they obviously did and it was a FAIL. He said they wouldn't make a smaller ipad and also said that there is no need to go big because iPhone is the perfect size. Fibber....
