One of the standout features of the recently-revealed Samsung Galaxy Nexus is undoubtedly its 4.65in Super AMOLED display.
Alas, some eagle-eyed geeks have pointed out that the spec sheet refers simply to Super AMOLED, and not Super AMOLED Plus. The latter is found on the Samsung Galaxy S II, while the former is an inferior technology used on the original Samsung Galaxy S.
With RGB panels, each pixel is made up of three separate sub-pixels, namely – you guessed it – red, green and blue. The resultant display is crisp and sexy, and can be seen in action on the iPhone 4S and Samsung Galaxy S II.
PenTile technology, on the other hand, has just two sub-pixels, leading to blurry edges and bleeding. It’s used on the Samsung Galaxy S.
Having said that, there’s a school of thought that suggests sub-pixel density rather than pixel density would give the Samsung Galaxy Nexus the edge over its younger S II brother.
Not to mention the hands-on reports that seem to unanimously agree that the Samsung Galaxy Nexus’ screen is awesomeness.
Still, we’ll be keeping a keen eye on the first round of reviews.
