A few things we weren’t entirely sure of have been confirmed, including the fact that it’ll feature – shock horror! – a PenTile display.
PenTile is, of course, the bane of our Matthew’s life, and it’s one of the reasons he continues to cling onto his beloved Samsung Galaxy S II.
On the flip side of the coin, Jan will instruct you to stop using a magnifying glass on your smartphone, while blizzard7 will politely tell you to “stop being silly” (or words to that effect).
What’s the problem? Well, Super AMOLED Plus (as found on the Samsung Galaxy S II and Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7) uses 50% more sub-pixels, and regular RGB (as opposed to PenTile).
Needless to say, it’s not exactly a make-or-break feature when it comes to Joe Average picking a smartphone (as evidenced by the Samsung Galaxy S III buying frenzy).
One thing we still don’t know is what Samsung’s Windows-focused “ATIV” stands for. A Terribly Inspired Venture? All Together In Vain? Let us know what you think below. Best answer gets a prize.
