Over half of phone displays to use touch panels next year

Friday 17 August 2012 | 09:24 CET | News
Over half of next year's small/medium smartphone panel shipments will use touch panels combined with flat-panel display (FPD) technology, and the proportion is forecast to rise to 70 percent by 2015, according to DisplaySearch. An increased demand for higher performing smartphones is driving production of FPD and touch panel technology. There has been dramatic growth in the integration of touch into the display itself, in addition to the ongoing trend of display makers bonding touch panels to their displays. Apple is expected to to incorporate in-cell touch in combination with LTPS TFT LCD on the new smartphone expected in the second half. Samsung combines Amoled with on-cell touch in its Galaxy S2 and S3 smartphones. The cost of bonding touch panels with displays is expected to decrease and smartphones will get thinner and brighter as glass sheets used for the outer touch panel are removed. The researcher also said small and medium display shipments tapered in the second quarter in anticipation of the release of the iPhone 5.
