full form stands for Active Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diode. It is a display technology which pairs the active matrix backplane from a traditional TFT display with an OLED display. AMOLED displays have faster pixel switching response times. As a result of this, there is never the effect of a “ghost” screen that is formed when an individual switches from one image to another. This makes the display ideal for gaming as well as for animation videos which have large volume of colors changing rapidly within a few seconds.
A key factor that is increasing the adoption of AMOLED displays is its requirement for smartphones. As a result of the features of an AMOLED display they are apt for smartphones which are often used for viewing numerous videos as well as playing a number of games. One of the earliest uses of AMOLED displays in smartphones was that of the Samsung Galaxy S smartphone in 2010. Following this, AMOLED displays were used in almost all models of the Samsung Galaxy series.
Gaming devices are also a key market for AMOLED displays.
Sony had used AMOLED displays in its PlayStation gaming devices as well as in its portable gaming devices.
One key feature of an AMOLED display is that because of its inherent features, these displays are sturdy and are also lightweight in comparison to standard OLED displays. As such, OEMs would prefer to install AMOLEDs which help in reducing the overall weight of their respective devices while also providing a superior display and better viewing quality.
