Ignis claims to have developed a solution to the shortcomings of AMOLED PenTile displays: a 300ppi AMOLED screen featuring a "true RGB" layout that still uses current manufacturing techniques.

The shortcomings of AMOLED PenTile displays have been heavy on our minds lately, especially with Nilay's scathing review of the Droid RAZR screen (pictured below), whose RGBG pixel arrangement not only looks dim and grainy, but also has a greenish tint. Now a company called Ignis claims to have a solution, with a 300ppi AMOLED screen featuring a "true RGB" pixel layout that still uses current manufacturing techniques.

Of course, Ignis's achievements don't mean much until they start shipping actual cellphone displays to users. Ignis licenses its technology to manufacturers rather than building the displays themselves, so somebody like Samsung will have to pick up the charge. In the meantime, good old-fashioned LCD still reigns supreme.
