Samsung Mobile Display announced that they will begin to produce AMOLED panels with integrated touch function. They will begin to produce the first panel, a 3.3" WVGA, 480x800 one in March. Samsung brands these display Super-AMOLED.

Samsung makes Super AMOLEDs by layering a touch-sensor (on-cell) over the OLED display and evaporating it. The thickness of the touch sensor is just 0.001mm - which should allow the screen to provide better images than normal AMOLEDs with an external touch layer, especially under direct light.
