The new iPhone 4 will use a Retina Display for its display screen, one that Apple’s CEO Steve Jobs feels is significantly better then Samsung’s AMOLED (Active Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diode) display technology.
According to Jobs, the IPS LCD technology found within a Retina Display provides for a much higher screen resolution as well as more vibrant colors, features that can’t be replicated by an OLED display. Of course, Samsung has taken offense to these these comments, stating that the AMOLED display provides much better contrast ratio, color reproduction and response times when compared to their Retina display counterparts.
The Samsung Galaxy S will be one of the first smartphones to be deployed with a super AMOLED display which will have a screen resolution of 800×480 pixels. For comparisons sake, the Apple iPhone 4 has a pixel resolution of 960×640.
