According to the company, the new screen is not only more efficient, but also brighter, as the new OLED screen reduces power draw by 16 percent while also increasing brightness, which improves battery life.
Galaxy S21 Ultra test results prove the screen is very bright, and battery runtimes seem to confirm Samsung’s claims that the screen is more efficient as well.
OLED screens use organic light-emitting diodes, and Samsung has found a new organic material developed that helps electrons flow faster and easier through the organic layer of the screen.
A smartphone screen is usually one of its most energy-consuming components, so efficiency gains here can have a significant impact on a device’s overall battery life.
