Samsung is working on tablets with cheap flexible touch screens

Samsung is probably early next year, with tablets with cheap flexible touchscreens, digitizer chip that does not need to work with a stylus, ETNews message. Samsung would have a technological obstacle for relatively small metal mesh touchscreens overcome.

Until now, manufacturers for their tablet screens use indium tin oxide , which they depend on China as the largest supplier of rare earth metal indium. Samsung is now converting the tablet production over to so-called metal mesh touchscreens, writes the Korean ETNews, to reduce costs.

With this type of roll, a grid of metal wires are used, which are coated with silver or copper. These screens are already used in all-in-ones and laptops, but at a higher pixel density, such as tablets, enters a Moiré effect on. Samsung could have this problem undone by bringing of 5 to 6 micrometers to 3 micrometers. Reduce the thickness of the wires

Besides the cost advantage is a positive side effect of metal mesh touchscreens that they are flexible and there is no separate digitizer chip for stylus support is needed. Samsung would have the production technology for metal mesh touchscreens made ​​universal, so it needs to be used in the TFT pixel type. No longer appropriate If the thickness of the wires of the grid can be from 1 micrometer, reduced the technology could also be used. Smartphones

End of this year Samsung test the reliability of the metal mesh-touch screens for tablets. Thereafter, the manufacturer in the first half of 2014 would like to release. The first tablet models with screens
