According to a report of leading daily newspaper of South Korea-Electronic Times, the tech giant Apple is soon going to use only OLED screens. At present, high-end phones like iPhone X, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XS, Google Pixel 3 XL, Huawei Mate 20 Pro, LG V40 ThinQ and a few more feature these screens. A glance at the pictures displayed on these iPhones proves beyond any doubt that OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) technology is capable of offering a rich display experience to cell phone users.
At present, the technology is quite expensive. Hence, it is finding its place only in high-end smartphones like iPhones, but the prospects for this young technology in the smartphone world are bright. So, let us explore the reasons.
Does not require a backlight
In the case of both LCD and LED technology used in smartphone displays, the displays use backlight for offering illumination to their pixels. However, screens powered by the OLED technology generate their own light through a controlled movement of electrons. Therefore, the new technology helps in experiencing high-contrast levels. Images are also thus razor-sharp with vivid colors with OLED technology.
Consumes low power
Nowadays, every smartphone user spends hours on texting, browsing, binge-watching, and more. So, sooner or later he or she has to follow some steps to save rapid drainage of the phone battery. The new technology enables smartphone displays to consume low power by drawing power only when it is in use. OLED displays are truly black when they are turned off.
Offers better viewing angles
The technology ushers in a new era in the smartphone world by offering better viewing angles that make the mobile experience more pleasant. OLED panels are relatively thinner than other panels which not only means smartphone display can be flexible rather than a traditional rigid one but also means that users can enjoy a video or image from a wide range of angles without losing out on contrast.
There are now several smartphone manufacturing companies who have embraced this technology for offering an improved mobile experience. Many wholesale suppliers of smartphone parts and accessories have OLED displays in their inventory to cater to the increasing demand of these displays.
