According to DisplayMate, an establishment that tests displays with their propriety testing methods, has announced that the Note 9 has one of the best if not the best display on the market. Since the inception of Galaxy Note 4, every Samsung flagship has been awarded this title. And yet again, DisplayMate says Samsung Galaxy Note 9 has the best display ever!
Putting actual facts into the context, the Note 9’s display covers 113% of the DCI-P3 and 142% of the RGB color space. The panel can also reach a maximum brightness of 710 nits in manual and 1050 nits in automatic mode. It also offers just 4.4% reflectance, one of the lowest ever recorded.
Following are the exact records that Samsung’s new flagship either broke or matched:
- Highest Absolute Color Accuracy (0.5 JNCD) – Visually indistinguishable from perfect.
- Smallest change in Peak Luminance with the Image Content APL (2 percent).
- Smallest shift in Color Accuracy and Intensity Scale with the Image Content APL (0.7 JNCD).
- Highest peak Display Brightness (1,050 nits with 710 nits at 100% APL).
- Largest Native Color Gamut (113% DCI-P3 and 142% sRGB / Rec.709).
- Highest Contrast Ratio (Infinite).
- Lowest screen Reflectance (4.4 percent).
- Highest Contrast Rating in Ambient Light (239).
- Smallest brightness Variation with Viewing Angle (27 percent at 30 degrees).
- Smallest Color Variation of White with Viewing Angle (1.3 JNCD at 30 degrees).
- Highest Screen Resolution 3K (2960×1440) – 4K doesn’t appear visually sharper on a Smartphone.
The Galaxy Note 9 also brings in a lot of other features other than the great display. It also has one of the biggest internal storage options on a smartphone, a full 512GB. Not to mention it’s expandable through a microSD card, with a technical total of up to a full Terabyte.
While we are on the subject of displays, users can now turn the resolutions all the way up to QHD+ without worrying about charging intervals. The 4000mAh battery should easily hold up the Note 9 in its full glory, unlike Samsung’s previous flagships.
The smartphone also comes with a few other features like liquid cooling, up to 8 GB of RAM, slightly better design choices, a slightly better camera, newer colour options and a newer improved S Pen with its own battery. The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is up for pre-orders since August 17th for Rs. 109,900 for the 6 GB RAM / 128 GB ROM version. Sadly, the 8 GB / 512 GB version is not available for Nepal.
Samsung really does have the best of the displays? Don’t you agree? Or do you think there’s something better? Let us know.
