An AMOLED panel was used the manufacturer, as Samsung has been doing for many years. Colour representation is very strong while power consumption is low. Samsung indicates that the display covers the sRGB colour space by up to 97 percent. The brightness is stated to be up to 350 cd/m². Furthermore, the display is based on the so-called Bio Blue technology. As such, the display emits significantly less blue light than regular AMOLED screens, meaning the eyes won't tire as quickly. Samsung states Bio Blue made it possible to lower the blue level from 32 to 6 percent.
