Canon has been interested in OLED displays for years - they have shown prototype OLED DSLRs back in 2005, they had plans to make their own OLED panels, and they acquried Tokki, which makes OLED manufacturing equipment. Today Canon finally announced their first cameras with OLED displays (which are most likely made by Samsung).

i dont think samsung makes this panel

This screen is totally as same as the one that sony TX series dc uses. And the number of the pixels suggests that it does not use a PenTile sub-pixel structure. And despite the fact that the ppi of Galaxy Note II's screen reaches 267, but this screen, if it is the one sony alse uses, has been put into use at least since 2010. how could samsung be able to produce such a high resolution display wthout PenTile and still not use it on its own devices?

Sony never made mass-produced

Sony never made mass-produced small AMOLED panels. Samsung is most likely the maker of this display. It may be a panel made by LGD, but I don't think that's probable.

even if sony has not mass-produced any oled display of this size

Just like what i said, samsung would never let other company, especially japanese company, use an oled screen of this high ppi before himself. And sony has been using a very similar oled display since his digital camera TX100V, which was launched in 2011. Back then, samsung still used a 3 inch VGA oled screen with PenTile structure for its cameras. So even if sony has never mass-produced any oled display of this size, the producer could never be samsung!

Well, the only AMOLED makers

Well, the only AMOLED makers today are Samsung, LGD and Sony. As far as I know Sony are only making larger sized panels, and they do not have the capacity for a mass-market product such as the TX series. But maybe I'm wrong on that one...

Oh, dots and not pixels

By the way - I'm not sure but usually camera makers quote the number of sub -pixels. So these are actually 1.23 million sub pixels, probably 854x480 resolution.

no doubt FWVGA

and reaches a ppi of 279@full RGB structure, at the same time samsung only used a 3.3 inch AMOLED screen with WVGA and PenTile on its s8500. And as for OLEDmanufacturers, there are much more just to look through oled-innfo's Companies catalog

and LGD is a more absurd suggesttion

LGD even didn't manage to achieve RGB structure with WOLED+CF structure, see its cellphone E730. There must be another display provider rather than these 2 Korean companies.

Canon has produced its own OLED Displays ?
No, Canon do not produce any

No, Canon do not produce any AMOLEDs.
