Korean company Samsung surprised the world last week with the coming- out of a new family of tablets called Samsung Galaxy Tab S . This brand new collection is made up of two devices with 10.5 and 8.4-inch screens that work through a technology that is not common in this type of tablet. We are referring, logically, to Super AMOLED technology . But how are these devices different from those that incorporate the classic LCD panels ? Well, this is the pedagogy that Samsung is trying to carry out after the launch of both teams through its blog Samsung Tomorrow. It is true that, apart from the technology of the screens, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S stand out for their dimensions. And besides being the lightest of the market (only weighing 467 and 294 grams), are also thinner: the two models only have a thickness of 6.6 mm .
But what is the difference between the classic LCD screens and the AMOLED ones ? Well, we are facing two ways of producing completely different colors. To begin with, LCDs are not capable of emitting light on their own and are supplied with color filters, a backlight unit, a light diffuser and different layers to create images. These same layers are in charge of blocking the lighting output from the screen. In addition, the light emitted in the background must remain on all the time, so that the energy consumption is also much higher. Instead, AMOLED technologyit is broadcast based. There are no layers that block the production of light and the panel in question is capable of offering direct colors , without obstacles in between.
In addition, Super AMOLED technology allows the devices in which it is integrated to be much thinner and lighter and offers users a lower energy consumption. To this we have to add the advanced Ultra Power Saving Mode , an energy saving system that is also present in the Samsung Galaxy S5 and that allows the useful life of a computer to be extended up to 24 hours.
In addition, the AMOLED displays of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S take better advantage of the color spectrum, defined in an expression of much richer cyans and greens. Contrast is also improved. And it is that this type of screens are capable of offering deeper blacks, 100 times better , achieving a true black. This high level of contrast offers more detailed images and a wider angle of view, without losing quality anywhere, up to 180 degrees .
But this is not all. Because Samsung has wanted to include Samsung Adapt Display technology in the screens to automatically optimize the brightness, contrast and sharpness of the main panel, adapting to the context and format. In this way, users will improve their visual experience and avoid ending the day with itchy eyes.
