Samsung Electronics said that it has signed a long-term contract to provide Dell with 27-inch LCD panels, according to DigiTimes’ reading of a Korean publication. Both companies will launch 27-inch panels in 2007, and the panels can also be used as televisions.
Samsung’s projected specifications for its upcoming 27-inch panel features a 1920 x 1200 resolution, 1000:1 contrast ratio, 500 cd/m2 and a response time of 8 ms grey-to-grey. See the full specs here.
Dell last month introduced a 20.1-inch widescreen LCD for $289. Samsung has also been making strides in other display technologies, as it recently revealed the world’s thinnest mobile LCD screen and just before that a 12mm thick AMOLED display.
