There are few experts who command the same level of respect as DisplayMate President of Display Analysis Raymond Soneira. That’s why when he says the Samsung Galaxy S4’s display is impressive, it holds a lot of water among tech fanatics, journalists and even everyday consumers.
According to Soneira’s analysis of the Galaxy S4’s 5-inch, 1080p display, Samsung makes use of technology known as CEI Chromaticity Diagram and grayscale for the flagship device’s adaptive screen setup. In layman’s terms, that means that the Galaxy S4’s display is a huge improvement over previous AMOLED-based displays, where colors would tend to be oversaturated.
Instead of whites coming with a faint trace of blue, the whites look whiter, and so on; colors appear more natural when on the Galaxy S4 compared to other Samsung devices with AMOLED display technology.
CNET, which reported on Soneira’s assessment of the Galaxy S4’s display, agreed wholeheartedly with it, adding in its report that it relies on DisplayMate’s software programs for lab tests.
Aside from that 5-inch, 1080p display that apparently offers much more than meets the eye, the Galaxy S4 will also feature 2 GB RAM, 4G LTE, a 13-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front camera, a 2,600 mAh battery and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. Depending on market, the Galaxy S4’s processor options are an eight-core Exynos 5410 Octa for international buyers, and a quad-core Snapdragon 600 for those in the United States.
The Galaxy S4 also sports several interesting new features such as Smart Scroll and Air View, a feature that originated first on the S Pen-enabled Galaxy Note 2.
