It became known that the company Samsung took over the company Liquavista. The latter was engaged in a very interesting development, which seems very promising - displays built on electrowetting technology (the technology is called Electrowetting).
It is believed that these displays will be able to compete with such a well-known universal electronic paper, whose developers have clearly reached a dead end, being unable to significantly improve the existing technology. Electronic paper displays are still too slow and colorless. Their only advantage was and remains an exceptionally low level of energy consumption.
As for the development Liquavista, then here we can observe all the same low power consumption, but the displays will be color and have a normal speed. They can work with or without backlight. The developers themselves, without exaggeration, dubbed it LCD 2.0.
Given the financial capabilities of the Korean conglomerate, we can safely assume that we will see the first prototypes of new displays in the near future.
By the way, the deal was made at the end of last year. That's just officially announced it only today. The amount of the deal was not disclosed.
