The new Galaxy Z Fold3 flexible Eco OLED display is 25 percent more efficient than before
After months of seemingly endless leaks, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 is finally official. As a result, many details about the device that leaked ahead of its launch proved to be very accurate. Since its launch, however, a few more interesting details about the device and its underlying technology have emerged.
The Galaxy Z Fold3 features the most robust display yet from Samsung’s foldables, which now supports S-Pen input marking a big step up from the fragile soft plastic display found in the original Fold. Samsung has now revealed that the new Z Fold3 flexible OLED panel is now also 25 percent more energy efficient while also increasing transmittance by 33 percent. All of which is good for battery life and the viewing experience.
Samsung says the new Eco OLED panel is able to achieve this by eliminating the need for a polarizer, which is normally required to help minimize reflections. To do this, Samsung has employed a new pixel structure that effectively does the same job. With light no longer needing to be passed through this additional layer, Samsung has been able to achieve significant energy savings. Fewer plastic components also makes it more environmentally friendly.
