How does the OnePlus Optice AMOLED screen differ from Samsung’s current offering?

We’ve all heard of the AMOLED display, and Samsung Super AMOLED displays have been around since the release of the Galaxy S1 seven years ago. But what is this new Optic AMOLED display tech that is being featured in the newly released OnePlus 3? This is the first time we’ve seen this technology and today, we’re going to delve into what makes it different from Samsung’s current flagship offering of displays.

First off, let’s hear what the company has to say about the new display equipped in the OnePlus 3. This is an excerpt from OnePlus’s official website for the OnePlus 3:

“Our stunning 5.5” Optic AMOLED display produces colors that are more vivid and true-to-life than ever before. A series of custom-engineered gamma corrections create a more natural viewing experience, while a dual-polarizing layer ensures ideal clarity, even in the brightest sunlight… It’s the smarter smartphone display.”

While this above statement works well for marketing purposes, it doesn’t really delve into the technology behind the display. It was only until a Reddit AMA was hosted by OnePlus founder Carl Pei that we got to know more about the display. In response to a question about the difference between regular displays and Optic AMOLED, Carl Pei revealed more information. The underlying tech behind the Optic AMOLED display is Super AMOLED, as Carl Pei explained. While using the same display technology, the company has added its own color profile, which varies the contrast and colors to make the color reproduction more true to life. The performance profile has also been varied to enhance visibility in bright conditions.

While most reviewers have spewed nothing but praise for the OnePlus 3’s display, notable exceptions like AnandTech haven’t been too happy about it. To alleviate these concerns, OnePlus is already pushing out an OTA update to the reviewers which may fix any gripes they had with them. Also, since the OnePlus 3 features a 1080p display spanned out at 5.5-inches, the underlying pentile matrix is subtely visible.

What is the difference between Super AMOLED and Optic AMOLED?

Optic Amoled is a variant of Super amoled customized by software to deliver a much better colour reproduction while in bright light conditions providing darker blacks, brighter whites and saturated colors and hence a pleasing viewing experience.

What is the difference between AMOLED and OLED?

Optic AMOLED Screen and the AMOLED Screen are both are based on the same OLED Screen.

OLED Means Organic Light Emitting Diode and AMOELD stand for Active Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diode.

AMOLED stands for Active Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diode. This type of display is generally used in large platforms. It contains TFT, which further consists of a storage capacitor.
