Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Has Created A New Standard For Smartphone Display

According to the new status, Samsung Galaxy Note 9‘s OLED panel sets a new standard for smartphone display in the market as per DisplayMate. Here’s everything you need to know about it.

Samsung has once again managed and also makes some of, if not the best displays on the market when it comes to finding one to slap into a high-end smartphone. Indeed, Apple’s iPhone X uses a Samsung display and, enough though, so do all of Samsung’s devices the latest of which is the Galaxy Note 9.

Apple managed to snatch the best performing smartphone display award from DisplayMate dethroning the Note 8 which the SK company managed to again reclaim with the Galaxy S9 earlier this year. Having only just been officially announced, DisplayMate got its hands on the new flagship and put it through the usual tests in order to come up with a score based on how well they believe the display performs.

Now, somewhat predictably, the Galaxy Note 9’s display is, however, the best in the world. Where Samsung is taking things up the notch. In DisdplayMate’s testing, the 6.4-inch QHD+ AMOLED panel of the Note 9 managed to set a new record for brightness which was 27% higher than that of the Note 8. The SuperAMOLED screen used in the Galaxy Note 9 and apparently marveled at its color accuracy and brightness, viewing angles were also impressive, something that SAMOLED displays have been known to struggle with.

In numbers, the Note 9’s display is capable of reaching a peak brightness of 710 nits which is even higher than some of the best LCD panels around. Additionally, the score for contrast rating for high ambient light was also higher by 32% compared to the previous Note series. That means that owners of the older device should notice an improvement in contrast and brightness when upgrading.

The 710 cd/m2 is for an All White Full Screen 100% Average Picture Level APL image, which is the most challenging image for an OLED display because all the pixels are at full power. This is 27% Brighter than on the Galaxy Note8, and a Contrast Rating for High Ambient Light that is 32% higher than on the Galaxy Note8 because of its lower Screen Reflectance of 4.4 percent. This is a Record Setting Brightness for OLED displays with 100% Average Picture Level APL images.

Yes, it’s important to note that in the absolute color accuracy benchmark, the Note 9’s display hit a record-high when it says is “visually indistinguishable from perfect.” Other areas where the panel managed to set a new record include that of color accuracy and intensity, small color shifts, brightness shifts, and viewing angles. Of course, the panel also had the lowest screen reflectance of 4.4%, a largest native color gamut of 113% and 142 percent of sRGB, highest contrast ratio, and more.

The 710 cd/m2 is for an All White Full Screen 100% Average Picture Level APL image, which is the most challenging image for an OLED display because all the pixels are at full power.

This is a Record Setting Brightness for OLED displays with 100% Average Picture Level APL images.

However, the Note 9’s display managed to get an ‘A+’ rating from DisplayMate, the highest rating possible from the publication. It’s also commendable to see Samsung raise the display bar so much higher with the Note 9 this year, although it shows that despite already having the best OLED panels around in the market, the company does not want to rest on its laurels and wants to push the bar even higher.

It’s important to remember that DiaplayMate is only one of many who likes to take a look at high-end displays and compare them with their contemporaries, but whereas DxOMark scores are less than scientific when it comes to smartphone camera scores. We suspect that if DisplayMate is saying the Galaxy Note 9’s display is the best around, that’s exactly what it is.
