Ultra Low Power Phone Displays

Unipixel, a startup company based in Woodlands TX has designed a handheld display that will double the battery life of a cell phone. The display is said to be 60% more efficient than traditional displays. These new displays are not based on any new technology in terms of materials or production processes, but rather on the technology that is already being used by LCD’s. The power savings come from the way light is filtered through the LCD. Unipixel has developed a way to get 61% of the original light to illuminate a pixel in the display compared to 5% in traditional LCD’s. Because of this extra light, the backlight can me eliminated, saving on power consumption. The actual product is still a few years away, however the technology sounds promising.
