    Xiaomi phone with Samsung E6 OLED breaks Android display brightness record

    Samsung recently showcased its newest OLED panel—E6 Super AMOLED—for smartphones that can reach up to 2,000 nits of peak brightness. It is the same panel used in the iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max. Now, Android smartphone makers have started using the same panel, and Xiaomi's latest phone seems to have broken a brightness record in the Android segment.

    According to an image posted by Xiaomi (via Ice Universe) on Weibo, the Xiaomi 13 Pro has a peak screen brightness of 1,900 nits, while its all-screen brightness is 1,200 nits. And despite such high brightness levels, Xiaomi says the battery life has improved by 22% compared to last year. However, that could be due to a combination of the new display and a more power-efficient processor.

    Despite being made by Samsung Display, rumors claim that Samsung MX (the smartphone business) hasn't used the E6 AMOLED display in the Galaxy S23 series. The OLED screens on the Galaxy S23+ and the Galaxy S23 Ultra can reportedly reach peak brightness levels of 1,750 nits. If this is true, this would be the first time a Samsung phone fails to be the brightest Android smartphone in the market.

    Other Android smartphone OEMs, including iQOO, Vivo, and OPPO, have also used Samsung's E6 OLED panels for their latest high-end/flagship Android smartphones. This new panel uses a brand-new material, which improves screen brightness while reducing power consumption.
