Samsung has been the king of smartphone displays for a few years now, but they continue to push the boundaries of what's possible on their smartphones, leading the way with their new Galaxy Note 8 smartphone.
The folks over at DisplayMate have put the new Galaxy Note 8 through its paces, noting that the Super AMOLED panel on the Note 8 is simply amazing. DisplayMate gave the Note 8 display an A+ as it beat not just Samsung's own smartphones, but all of their competitors, too. This is what DisplayMate had to say:
- The display on the Galaxy Note8 has not only major improvements in the OLED display hardware, but also many new and enhanced display features and display functions that we will cover in detail.
- The 6.3 inch display is 20% larger in screen area than the Galaxy S8 and 14% larger than previous Galaxy Note displays, without increasing the size of the phone, which is accomplished by reducing the borders around the display.
- Another very noticeable and major improvement for the Galaxy Note8 is the display is 22% Brighter than the Galaxy S8, with a Peak Display Brightness of over 1,200 nits, a new Record for Smartphones, which provides significantly improved display performance and screen readability in challenging indoor and outdoor high ambient light viewing conditions.
DisplayMate had some major display highlights for the Note 8, adding:
- A new 3K Higher Resolution 2960 x 1440 display that fills almost the entire front face of the phone from edge-to-edge, resulting in a larger 6.3 inch display with a 15% taller height to width Aspect Ratio of 18.5 : 9 = 2.05 than the 16 : 9 = 1.78 on most Smartphones.
- A new and accurate full 100% DCI-P3 Color Gamut that is also used for 4K TVs. Plus it is certified by the UHD Alliance for Mobile HDR Premium, which allows it to play all of the latest content produced for 4K UHD Premium TVs.
- The Native Color Gamut of the Galaxy Note8 is even larger, the result of its new high saturation "Deep Red" OLED, resulting in a very impressive 112% of DCI-P3 and 141% of sRGB / Rec.709 Gamuts that also produces better on-screen Colors in High Ambient Light.
- The Galaxy Note8 provides up to 22% Higher Screen Brightness than the Galaxy S8, with a record Peak Display Brightness of over 1,200 nits.
