Contrary to existing color display methods that express color pixel by pixel, this new method creates color at the sub-pixel level representing more than two data lines from the same pixel. By composing a new pixel with the sub-pixel on the adjacent scanning line, 480x640 VGA resolution can be attained from a 240x640 panel. The device can display up to 260K colors for TFT-LCD panels in mobile phones...Samsung Electronics plans to begin using its VGA TFT-LCD driver IC on high-end mobile phone models in the second quarter of 2005. The company will then steadily expand its application to other product lines."</i><br /><br />VGA resolution for cell phone screens. 8) Now that cell phones are morphing into smart phones, camera phones, media players and navigation aids; the VGA resolution screens with up to 260K colors would really help.
