Samsung’s latest flagship, the Galaxy S21 Ultra has become the first phone to feature Samsung Display’s new power-efficient OLED panels. Samsung stated in a press release that the new display consumes 16 percent less power because of a “just-developed organic material”. It means that “electrons flow faster and more easily across the display’s organic layer” in the device.
Features of Samsung’s Galaxy S21 Ultra –
Samsung explains that the technology describes that its “OLED panels can create brighter light while consuming less power, which improves the battery lifetime.” It is definite that the display of a smartphone is typically one of its most power-hungry components and very attractive to watching movies on it. It also has a big impact on the overall battery life of the device. No doubt, S21 Ultra has excellent battery life that lasts “beyond a full day.”
According to a report by Samsung, it is confirmed that S21 Ultra uses an LTPO (a Low-Temperature Polycrystalline Oxide) display and many phones have used it before as well. Samsung’s new model also uses LTPO display panels which Samsung brands as HOP (Hybrid Oxide and Polycrystalline silicon).
Major announcements for Samsung’s Galaxy S21 Ultra
Recently, it has been announced that S21 Ultra is the “first” to use the more efficient panels, with the refined technology as compared to the Note 20 Ultra. Before being used in smartphones, LTPO displays have been used in smart watches and it has revealed that the Apple Watch Series 4 featured an LTPO display produced by LG. Also, Samsung’s Galaxy Watch Active 2 used an LTPO display which was produced by Samsung Display.
Apple’s next flagship iPhones will soon benefit from Samsung Display’s power-efficient panel technology. Samsung, the South Korean company is in line to supply LTPO panels for Apple’s 2021 iPhones which will use 120Hz LTPO OLED displays in two of its four iPhones while the other two will have more traditional OLED panels.
