Maxis10: Samsung Galaxy S Super AMOLED Screen Close Up

Thursday 8 July 2010 @ 2:41 am

The Super AMOLED touchscreen is one of the main selling points of Samsung Galaxy S. When I first turned on the phone after receiving it, I was totally blown away by the clarity and colour richness. You should really check it out yourself if you have the chance.

What is AMOLED?

AMOLED stands for Active Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diode (LED). According to Wikipedia, an AMOLED display consists of OLED pixels that have been deposited or integrated onto a thin film transistor (TFT) array to form a matrix of pixels that generate light upon electrical activation, which functions as a series of switches to control the current flowing to each of the pixels.

Basically, the main advantages of AMOLED are :-

  • Thin and lightweight screen
  • Low power consumption
  • Wide viewing angle

What is Super AMOLED?

Super AMOLED is the enhanced version of AMOLED produced by Samsung. Super AMOLED integrates the touch sensor into the screen rather than being overlaid on top of the screen. The direct benefits include a thinner touch screen and lighter phone weight. That’s why Samsung Galaxy S weights is only 118g and have a thickness of only 9.9mm. Other advantages of Super AMOLED as compared to AMOLED or normal TFT screen are :-

  • 20% brighter screen
  • Wider viewing angle (Samsung Galaxy S has 180 degree viewing angle)
  • 80% less sunlight reflection (overcome the shortcoming of AMOLED)
  • 20% reduced power consumption (even lesser power consumption than iPhone4 Retina Display)

Let’s take a look of how Samsung explain Super AMOLED in the video below :-

Anyway, I’ve captured a 4 minutes plus video in High Definition HD (720p) to show you how vibrant is the colour of Samsung Galaxy S screen. The size of this video is 583MB and I hope you enjoy watching it.

The default playing quality is 360p (or 480p), so just select 720p if you want to play the video in HD.

Hope the time I spent to upload this gigantic video is worth it. :)
