Samsung has only just launched laptop-sized AMOLED displays in the Galaxy Book Pro line-up; now, the OEM has revealed another new party trick for these panels. They have attained an SGS certification that states they match up to this body's standards for use during gaming. They include certain levels of blur length and contrast ratio.

Samsung asserts that its new Galaxy Book Pro and Pro 360 are ideal for demanding, high-speed content reproduction, gaming included, due to the AMOLED nature of their 13.3- or 15.6-inch screens. This, according to the OEM, is due to their enhanced contrast and reduced blur during movement. Now, the devices have official documentation based on external testing to declare the same.

This award has been conferred on Samsung OLED for laptops by Switzerland's Société Générale de Surveillance (SGS). The standards body has done so due to Samsung's ability to reduce moving-picture response time to under 15.4 milliseconds (ms),and by keeping the blur level below 1.4 millimeters (mm), in the panels in question.

Samsung also reports that it gained its latest certification due to the Galaxy Book Pro series' HDR contrast ratio, which exceeds 1,000,000:1 thanks to its OLED nature. The OEM has also debuted its new laptops with claims of general content-consumption mastery thanks to their 120% DCI-P3 color gamut coverage and faithful reproduction of blacks (with a expression capability of 0.0005 nits of brightness or less).

Galaxy Books Pro are now available on Amazon.
