The key element for a great Smartphone has always been a truly innovative and top performing display, and the best leading edge Smartphones have always flaunted their super high tech displays. It is the display performance that determines how good and how beautiful everything on the Smartphone looks, including camera photos, and also how readable and how usable the screen is in high ambient lighting. The display is the crown jewel of the Smartphone!
The Galaxy Note7 is Samsung’s newest flagship Smartphone with their most advanced flexible OLED display that provides a unique dual-edge curved screen. The Galaxy Note series and Galaxy S series are how they show off their latest and greatest OLED displays and display technology. Samsung has been alternately releasing one of these models every six months, so there are two OLED generations per year. Every new OLED generation has provided significant enhancements and improvements, so they have improved rapidly and regularly leapfrog each other in display performance. As a result, OLEDs have developed into excellent Smartphone displays that now outperform the best LCD Smartphones. There is no better confirmation of the OLED performance lead than a series of well founded rumors from a number of prominent publications that Apple will be switching the iPhone to OLED displays in 2017.
Last year’s 2015 Galaxy Note model was called the Note5, but the new 2016 model is called the Note7. The skip to Note7 is meant to synchronize product names with the 2016 Galaxy S7 that launched in February. But the Galaxy Note series generally takes the lead in introducing new display technology, with the Galaxy S then enhancing it and adding additional features and functions. So the future Galaxy S8 will likely inherit the major display enhancements being introduced on the Galaxy Note7 (with a smaller screen size and significantly higher pixels per inch). Since the Note series generally leads in display technology, the Note7 should really have been called the Note8 so that its name will be in better sync with the future Galaxy S8.
