What is "Super LCD"?

Super LCD (SLCD) is a display technology used by numerous manufacturers for mobile device displays. Its most popular proponent is HTC, though Super LCD panels are actually produced by Sony. Super LCD differs from a regular LCD in that it does not have an air gap between the outer glass and the display element. This produces less glare and makes the user feel "closer" to the display itself. Super LCD's benefits also include lower power consumption and improved outdoor visibility. Super LCD has been succeeded by the newer Super LCD2 displays.

Also known as: "S-LCD", "S-LCD2", "SLCD", "SLCD2", "Super LCD2"
