Aug 31, 2017: OLED display manufacturer Samsung has unveiled its new smartphone, the Galaxy Note8, which is equipped with the best OLED screen mass produced by the company.
The OLED screen on the new Samsung smartphone features many improvements. The display screen design fills almost the front face of the phone, and provides a larger display without increasing the size of the phone.
The 6.3 inch display is 20% larger in screen area and 14% larger than the Galaxy Note displays. However, the size of the phone has not increased as the size of the borders around the display has been reduced.
It is reported that the new OLED display is 22% brighter than the Galaxy S8, with a peak display brightness of over 1,200 nits. This has been a new record for smartphones, as it improves display performance and screen readability in indoor and outdoor high ambient light viewing conditions.
The OLED display is flexible, and the screen is rigid under an outer hard cover glass, formed into a rigid curved screen. The curved screen provides two configurable Edge Screen areas that can be viewed from both the front and the sides, even when the phone is placed face down.
The edge screen can also be used as a night clock. The full display has 3K resolution (2960 x 1440 pixels) with a new and accurate full 100% DCI-P3 Color Gamut (the same one that is used for 4K TVs). 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 GalaxyNote8 is even larger, the result of its new high saturation “Deep Red” OLED, resulting in 112% of DCI-P3 and 141% of sRGB / Rec.709 Gamuts that also produces better on-screen colors in high ambient light.
