Although other manufacturers, including Samsung, have already released phones using AMOLED displays, Motorola is expected to be showing off its first mobiles to take advantage of the technology when the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is held in Las Vegas this week.
The bright, energy-efficient AMOLED technology is likely to be employed in several new smartphones using the Android operating system that Motorola has already employed successfully in its Dext and Milestone mobiles.
Two new phones are rumoured for preview at CES and the Motorola A555 Devour, which has also been called the Calgary during development, is just one of them. It will sport the same Motoblur interface as the Milestone, but will essentially be a pared-down version with a lower-spec camera and without a full QWERTY keypad.
The Devour will have a range of connectivity options, including Wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth and all the usual smartphone trimmings.
It will also run the latest version of Android, 2.1, which should add in some advanced software functions to supplement the relatively modest hardware, of which the AMOLED screen will surely be the star component.
