Samsung smartphones are known for their displays. The company uses the Super AMOLED displays in their smartphones, and we are all aware of how good these panels are with deep blacks and perfect whites. And it is also a known fact that the company is trying to make the already existing great displays, even better with each and every revision.

This year’s Samsung Galaxy S7 & the S7 Edge also had the same displays, and they were exceptional. And just when we though that it can’t get better than this, that is when Samsung starts to innovate and surprise us. The newly launched Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has achieved a new level of greatness with its display panel. The smartphone is now officially launched in India and you can pre-order one starting August 22nd. According to a report, the display in the Note 7 can achieve more than 1,000 nits of brightness.

Talking about the panel, it is a 5.7-inch QuadHD resolution display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 which gives it a pixel density of 518 pixels per inch. As per the reports, when left in the automatic mode and expose the smartphone in bright sunlight, the display will hit 639 nits. This is a significant upgrade from the Galaxy S7 which gets to only about 440 nits in manual mode. It is hence advised to leave the brightness in auto mode in the Galaxy Note 7 to get the most out of it. And since it has ambient light sensors, it is smart enough to adjust the levels according to the conditions. And interestingly, this new phablet has two of as compared to only one found in other devices.

There is also new Blue Light Filter mode that allows the user to adjust and reduce the amount of blue light from the display for better night viewing. And most importantly, it is protected by the latest and greatest Gorilla Glass 5. We are sure the company will be bringing something new to the table with the upcoming Galaxy S8 smartphone, which is going to the flagship for the company for the year 2017. Maybe we might see the first true 4K display on a smartphone. Well, let’s wait and find out what is there in store for us. Stay tuned for info on this.

    I had used Apple iPhone in bright sunlight and it was perfectly visible and if I believe it was in and around 800nits and now comes Note 7 wth 1050 nits…that’s way brighter and easily visible under direct sunlight I believe.
