Samsung introduces new mobile OLED with up to 1,500 nits peak brightness and 73% DCI-P3 outdoors.
For many years, the South Korean giant has been promoting these panels with its technology, AMOLED, but it also produces OLEDs for other competing manufacturers such as Apple, among others. Hence the main advances in this field are commanded by the Asian firm, which now takes a step forward in terms of brightness.
Increased visibility and brightness with Samsung’s new mobile OLED under sunlight
Samsung has announced a new technology for cell phone screens that remains within the OLED and has been recognized even by UL, an independent company that is responsible for the evaluation of such components and test them in terms of their outdoor visibility and performance under sunlight.
The new OLED display developed by Samsung appears related in the company’s statements to 5G because the development is “in keeping with the spirit” of the fifth generation of mobile communications. A way of saying that it goes hand in hand with the latest advances in mobile technology, although the screens and connectivity do not have much to do when it comes down to it.
As UL has recorded in its tests, Samsung’s new OLED screen offers up to 73% of the DCI-P3 standard in terms of color gamut and can obtain maximum peaks of up to 1,500 nits in the brightness section. Not bad considering that usually outdoor displays lose contrast and extra brightness is often needed to improve readability.
In the 5G era, where people are spending more and more hours with their smartphones, we must ensure display performance that delivers clear and bright image quality both indoors and outdoors,” says Dennis Choi, vice president, and team manager of Samsung Display. “While it can be used with many types of smartphones, Samsung’s new OLED is particularly well suited for 5G devices, as it will provide greater device usability and therefore more value for consumers.”
Although Samsung indicates that the new displays will be made available across all product ranges in the market, the South Korean firm already anticipates that they will be primarily focused on 5G phones that the brand will market soon. Samsung has not commented anything about the consumption of this new OLED screen that has already been presented. So we will have to wait for tests once it arrives onboard a commercial device.
