Samsung has confirmed that they’ve bought the Dutch-based display technology firm Liquavista. Liquavista is a spin-out from Phillips Research Labs and specializes in display technology named Electrowetting (EWD). The EWD is known to work in transmissive, reflective, transparent and transflective modes and offer picture quality at par with LCDs at very low power consumption, which is just 10 percent of the battery power consumed by today’s LCDs.
The Electrowetting Display is also useful for e-paper applications that enables color video with a response time of more than 70 times than current reflective displays.
Samsung plans to use the EWD in e-book readers, mobile phones and other mobile devices.
