Move On From LED. Its Time For AMOLED


AMOLED, short for active matrix organic LED is new display technology that is now widely in use. An OLED is a light-emitting diode in which the layer that emits Light upon the passage of electricity is made up of a thin film of organic substances.

Move On From LED. Its Time For AMOLED


The term “AMOLED” stands for “Active-Matrix Organic Light-Emitting Diode” or sometimes just “Active-Matrix OLED”. It is a type of display device technology that is currently being used in smartwatches, mobile devices, laptops, and TVs. It is a screen technology based on pixels composed of tiny red, blue, and green organic material-based light emitting diodes or OLEDs.

Active matrix means a thin film transistor system where individual pixel luminesces on activation and the screen is drawn all at once every time it refreshes. An active matrix display provides a more responsive image at a wider range of viewing angle than dual scan display or passive matrix. Because the three colors in the pixels are light, the screen doesn’t have to be backlit.

This technology also allows the blackest possible black for a higher contrast ratio with an equal brightness. Their built makes AMOLED screens lighter and thinner while at the same time being much more durable.
