Samsung is all over when it comes to the smartphone world – be it selling smartphones, their displays or even their chipsets. The Korean company can easily be termed as a jerk of all trades as far as the mobile world is concerned.
While quite a number of companies have been sourcing their chipsets from Samsung, the trend in the recent past has begun going towards the company’s Display branch. Apparently, quite a number of smartphone flagships’ display screens are based on the company’s OLED technology. In fact, it has been rumored that Apple will also be dropping the use of LCD panels in 2017, with the upcoming iPhone 7 probably the last iPhone to feature LCD panels.
The Nexus 6P has an AMOLED display screen, which is one of the things that have made this device such a loveable phone. Apparently, Huawei is not the only company to see the good in Samsung AMOLED panels, OnePlus is seeing the same advantages too. The latest OnePlus 3, which was announced on June 14, has a screen made of Samsung’s Super AMOLED technology.
Of course, the spec sheet of OnePlus 3 will tell you that the phone has a 5.5-inch Optic AMOLED display. Well, this is nothing but the current-gen Super AMOLED display panels from Samsung, only that the OnePlus 3 adds some variations as far as color temperature and contrast are concerned. This revelation was made public by the company’s co-founder, Carl Pei, via an AMA session on Reddit.
However, unlike what you get with the Super AMOLED panels used on Samsung’s flagship phones, the OnePlus 3 comes with a Full HD resolution and a pixel density of 401ppi. Under the hood is a Snapdragon 820 SoC that is paired with a RAM of 6GB and onboard storage of 64GB.
As you can see, the OnePlus 3 has even better specs under the hood than what is offered on the flagship Samsung Galaxy S7. Apart from the screen quality, there is really nothing that the Galaxy S7 offers that the OnePlus flagship doesn’t have. However, you will enjoy even better when it comes to the pricing of the latter, which is set to go on sale for just $399 as opposed to the $670 the Galaxy S7 costs. It gets even worse when talking about the price of the Galaxy S7 Edge, which is actually the same screen size as the OnePlus 3.
