What is Super AMOLED Screen

Smartphones screens display are of various kinds like LCD, Super LCD, OLED, AMOLED etc. Currently latest phones like Samsung Galaxy S5 and others are using Super AMOLED screen. Let me briefly explain this term.

To understand Super AMOLED you first need to understand its origins. It started with OLED, which stands for ‘organic light-emitting diode’ and consists of a thin organic film with electrodes at either side. As soon as an electric current is applied to the film it emits light.

AMOLED is an ‘active-matrix organic light-emitting diode’. It adds a layer of semiconducting film behind the OLED panel which allows it to more quickly activate each pixel. That increased speed makes it ideal for larger, higher definition displays with a lot of pixels. In fact it’s as much as 1000 times faster than LCD.
