Galaxy S20 Ultra’s display is as close to perfection as technically possible


Last updated: February 17th, 2020 at 15:39 UTC+02:00

The new Galaxy S20 Ultra has some of the best components imaginable, and the generous 6.9-inch Dynamic AMOLED display is definitely one of them, according to DisplayMate’s latest display shootout.

The paper details the areas in which the Galaxy S20 Ultra’s display was tested, where it excels, and which areas were greatly improved compared to the Galaxy S10.

Galaxy S20 Ultra sets 12 display performance records

The Galaxy S20 Ultra’s display has set no fewer than 12 smartphone display records in DisplayMate’s latest testing. From having the highest absolute color accuracy to the highest peak display brightness and largest native color gamut, the Galaxy S20 Ultra’s 6.9-inch panel has set or matched enough records to receive DisplayMate’s highest-ever Display Performance Grade of A+. Check out the list below for more details.

OLED display technology keeps improving as the popularity of LCDs continues to drop to new lows. With the Galaxy S20 Ultra, Samsung appears to have made an effort to significantly improve key areas such as Absolute Picture Quality and Absolute Color Accuracy. Much like the Galaxy Note 10, the S20 display benefits from Precision Factory Display Calibration, and both picture quality and color accuracy are rated as visually indistinguishable from perfect.

When compared to the Galaxy S10, Samsung’s latest flagship display outperform its predecessor in a few key aspects and boasts a 23% larger screen area, a higher refresh rate, and better outdoor visibility thanks to a 14% brighter screen.

DisplayMate’s full report goes into greater technical detail regarding the Galaxy S20 Ultra’s screen, testing methodologies, and results, so make sure you check the full paper if you want to dive deep into why Samsung’s latest flagship was able to top the charts.
