What does AMOLED mean?

AMOLED stands for Active Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diodes, and it’s a type of OLED display used in smartphones and other electronic devices. It provides an increased refresh rate for smoother, faster interactions, and it helps to reduce power consumption, so your battery lasts longer.

The main difference between AMOLED and OLED is that an AMOLED displays contains strips of thin-film transistors (TFT) behind each pixel – these TFTs transfer electricity more efficiently, for faster interactions.


Super AMOLED is a type of AMOLED display that has an integrated touch function – instead of having a responsive layer that recognises touch on the top of the screen, the layer is fully integrated into the screen itself. Super AMOLED screens offer a wider range of colours than AMOLED screens, as well as automatically adjusting to various lighting environments to protect your eyes while providing great picture quality.

Dynamic AMOLED is a screen technology that greatly improves colour, depth and clarity. It’s available on several Infinity-O Displays and Infinity Flex Displays – the latter is used on the Galaxy Z Flip3.
