Samsung Brags Of 4K Display For Note 6: VR Wars Heat Up In Smartphone Market
Samsung recently boasted a 5.5-inch display for smartphones intended especially for the VR market. According to Gadgets 360, the 4K display showcases a pixel density of 806ppi with a 97 color breadth. The highlights for the Korean based phone company were revealed at the San Francisco's Display Week conference which championed the new 5.5-inch with 4K AMOLED display strictly for virtual reality or VR applications.
This 4K (2160x3840 pixels) resolution enhancement display will lift up the broadcasting involvement in virtual reality, and arbitrating on Samsung's small display in San Francisco, 4K display on smartphones may soon become a household name.
Smartphone-based VR headsets have started to become a ubiquitous byword, however, most of these hitting the market, wherein users can just slip their smartphones in and experience immersive viewing have been in degree restricted. With most concepts being paraded limited to a full-HD (1080x1920 pixels) display, and some go so far as QHD (1440x2560 pixels), which jumps up the ante a bit for a better experience.
Samsung has given assertions as mentioned on the website that the product at Display Week was just a trial run as the "Real McCoy" will bring the aforementioned 806ppi pixel density, 97 percent color gamut, and 350nit brightness.
Even the Galaxy Note 5 wasn't on 4K display while the phablet settled for a QHD (1440x2560 pixels) display instead.
Another Samsung device rumored for a 4K display is the Note 6 which says the opposite for its 2K QHD display. However, the device is said to include a Snapdragon 820 SoC, 6GB of RAM, 32GB storage for the base model with storage expandability via microSD card, and 12-megapixel rear camera with a Dual Pixel setup.
In related news, Samsung also showcased its "Bio Blue" technology at the Display Week conference. This new technology can significantly reduce the harmful blue light on AMOLED display from 32 percent to 6 percent, according to Mobipicker.
