The Galaxy Note 9 comes with a display that managed to raise the bar "significantly higher" compared to the previous Samsung handsets that were praised by DisplayMate for the quality of their screens. In this case, the display lab claims that the Note 9 sports "the most innovative and high-performance smartphone display" it ever tested.

Although the new Galaxy Note seems like a slightly improved Galaxy Note 8, it seems that the Galaxy Note 9 sports the best display ever tested by DisplayMate Technologies. Obviously, a minor improvement of the excellent display used by Samsung for the Galaxy Note 8 could easily lead to a new king of the market, but DisplayMate made it clear by saying that "the Galaxy Note9 has raised the bar significantly higher."

In the lab tests performed by DisplayMate, the 6.4-inch 3K Super AMOLED display of the new Galaxy Note matched or set new records in the color accuracy, peak brightness, color gamut, contrast ratio, or screen reflectance areas. Holding an A+ rating, the screen of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 has been described by DisplayMate as "the most innovative and high-performance smartphone display that we have ever lab tested."

When it comes to the bare minimum color difference that the human eye can perceive, measured in JNCD units (Just Noticeable Color Differences), the 0.5 rating of the Galaxy Note 9 is 85 percent better than the one achieved by its predecessor's display. In plain English: the Galaxy Note 9 has "the most color accurate display" ever measured by DisplayMate and can be considered "visually indistinguishable from perfect."

Sadly, the Galaxy Note 9 does not come cheap (around US$1,200 for the 8 GB/512 GB memory/storage variant), so remains to see if having the best smartphone display around is enough to turn it into a success. After all, those looking for a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845-powered device with a large display can find quite a few alternatives for almost half the price, for example the upcoming Pocophone F1.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
