Super AMOLED Plus Explained

Samsung has created an image that shows the difference between an ordinary AMOLED screen and a Super AMOLED Plus display that will be arriving in the Samsung Galaxy S 2 when it launches.

Put simply, the main difference is that the Super AMOLED Plus version has more pixels. At a WVGA resolution the regular AMOLED can show 768,000 sub-pixels while the new version of the screen is capable of showing 1,152,000 sub pixels.

The 768,000 pixels of the older technology is exactly two thirds of that of the new technology. In other words, for every 2 sub-pixels of each pixel, there are now 3 sub-pixels for each pixel which in turn, gives an even clearer image.

Oled-Info comment:

It also turns out that a Real-Stripe matrix also takes up more space per pixel. This explains why a 4.3″ display that uses Real-Stripe has the same resolution as a 4″ with a penTile matrix. But this display should actually be clearer because of the added sub-pixels and better matrix design.

As for power consumption on the higher quality screen, we hear that Samsung has been able to make it thinner and use 18% less energy, so overall you are getting a fantastic looking screen using less power and that’s also thinner than the regular AMOLED screen technology.
