The key element for a great smartphone has always been a truly innovative and top performing display, and the best leading edge smartphones have always flaunted their super high tech displays. It's the display performance that determines how good and how beautiful everything on the smartphone looks, including camera photos, and also how usable and how readable the screen remains in high ambient lighting. It is the crown jewel of the smartphone.

A lot of amazing engineering and design goes into making your smartphone. And smartphone displays are one of the most important parts -- they're your window onto the internet, and the world. But the technical terms we use to describe them can be pretty confusing. Here's how to sound like you know what you're talking about when it comes to displays.

It’s been a challenging week for LG's TV business. Good Gear Guide claims to have "sighted" advertising materials that suggest the gorgeous 55-inch EM9600 OLED TV we saw at CES will hit Australia in October for a cool $10,000 (up from $8,000 in the US). No wonder it’ll supposedly be marketed as the 'Rolex of TVs'. Then days later, it emerged that the secret OLED tech behind both LG's and Samsung's next-gen TVs has allegedly been stolen and leaked to Chinese and Taiwanese competitors.

Some tablets and smartphones ship with an AMOLED display. Newer ones are shipping with a "Super AMOLED" display. What so super about it, and what does all this alphabet soup even mean?

HTC has today confirmed rumours about a planned switch away from the supply restrained AMOLED screen tech it sticks in its Desire and Nexus One phones, with new/old and more plentiful "Super LCD" screens replacing them.

Samsung is planning to launch a display with an AMOLED plastic panel on the universal board within two years. Why? Because by switching to the plastic panel, the AMOLED display would become unbreakable.
