DisplayMate Technologies which is known for their accurate and in-depth evaluation of smartphone displays has completed its comprehensive evaluation of the Galaxy Note 9’s Infinity Display and said that the Galaxy Note 9 has raised the bar significantly higher.”
It said that “the level of display performance and excellence has been increasing each year, and the Galaxy Note9 has raised the bar.” According to them the Galaxy Note 9 features “the most innovative and high-performance smartphone display that they have ever tested in lab.” The Note 9 established several display performance records during DisplayMate’s in-depth analysis, ultimately earning the firm’s highest-ever A+ grade.
The Galaxy Note9’s 6.4-inch, 3K (2960×1440) Quad HD+ Super AMOLED display matched or set records for a number of important measurements, including screen reflectance, absolute color accuracy, peak brightness, native color gamut, contrast ratio and screen resolution.
The smartphone’s enhanced High Brightness Mode produces vibrant visuals when users need them, such as when they’re under direct sunlight or in environments with lots of ambient light. DisplayMate’s evaluators tested the feature by displaying an all-white full screen, which is the most challenging image for an OLED display to produce, as it requires all the pixels to shine at full power.
The Galaxy Note 9 set a new record for this brightness measurement that was 27 percent brighter than last year’s Galaxy Note 8. The device also featured contrast rating for high ambient light that was 32 percent higher than that of its predecessor.
In addition to featuring enhanced brightness and accuracy, the Galaxy Note9’s display offers improved power efficiency. DisplayMate’s evaluation also included measurement of the display’s average power consumption when portraying a wide range of content. The Galaxy Note9 consumed just 1.10 watts of power, which makes it 8 percent more power efficient than the Galaxy Note 8.
