According to testing firm DisplayMate, Samsung’s new flagship phablet scored “very good” to “excellent”, and most likely, the Galaxy Note 7 will offer the highest display quality in a smartphone released in 2016.
The Galaxy Note 7 will arrive on August 19 and will have a large 5.7-inch QHD dual-edge Super AMOLED screen. Users will view and control the curved edges from the front or the sides, and will have access to applications more easily, by tapping their shortcuts. It is known that Super AMOLED screens have vibrant colors and they appear bright even in direct sunlight, without killing battery life. DisplayMate President Raymond Soneira wanted to test the screen quality of the Note 7 and he after testing it, he concluded that “The Galaxy Note 7 provides many major and important state-of-the-art display enhancements, with mobile OLED display technology now advancing faster than ever,” adding that “The Galaxy Note 7 is the most innovative and high-performance smartphone display that we have ever tested.”
Compared to other smartphones that offer just a single color mode, the Note 7 will support four color modes. The most impressive one will be AMOLED Cinema mode, which will allow the Note 7 to display the latest high-end 4K video content that plays on 4K Ultra HD televisions. The screen is also capable of reproducing a aide range of colors and it achieved high marks for peak brightness and other attributes, resulting in that “Almost every display lab test and measurement shows some improvements compared to the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S7.”
Let’s not forget that the Note 7 will be even more powerful than the Galaxy S7, as it will be powered by the new Exynos 8890 octa core processor (4×2.3 GHz Mongoose & 4×1.6 GHz Cortex-A53) that will support 4GB of RAM. However, the two cameras are identical, so they have resolutions of 12MP and 5MP, but the battery has been upgraded and it has a capacity of 3500mAh.
