Wasn't the first non-organic Blue LED invented in the 90s, Like the first "good" blue led

Or is OLED a really old tech now and soon to be replaced by microled.

Red is lowest energy above infrared
Blue is highest energy below ultra violet
Blue leds requires more voltage than red leds
I remember my coworker had a galaxy s6, and the keyboard was burned into the screen. it was tinted red where the keyboard normally would be. (green and blue somehow burned out quicker than the red)

so why stop there? why not 240hz?

2k/4k/8k.120hz 240hz 360hz are all great. if i could buy it at affordable price, i would. but we speaking of mobile devices here, as far as i know it's still need battery to power them on and batteries have their own capacity, it's not infinity, it's not like we power them on at power outlet all the time. personally i prioritize battery life well above display quality for smartphone

i have clevo x7200 laptop. using intel 980x 6 cores desktop processor( desktop, not mobile processor), dual graphic cards, those thing have 330watts power supply. both laptop and charger weight are 10kg/22lbs. with full perfomance on, battery lasted for 20 minutes. a real nice laptop :D for about 20 minutes

[deleted post]Personally I don't play games on my mobile, only so 60 Hz (90 Hz) is fine as even sport is only shot at 60 FPS. And movies at 24 fps so as long as the refresh rate is above that I am happy. The video option of 120 fps @ 2k however will only be good to slow down the shot unless you export it to a monitor I guess

Whenever its put in 240hz mode, the screen gets a bit darker. I assume there is a blank frame every other frame.
I own a RTX 2080 (founders edition if anyone is wondering) @1440p I get around 60-75fps at high/ultra quality LOL (I prefer quality over frame rate anyways)
Same with Xperia 1II
I just want a nice pixel dense display. 120hz is nice, but I never had a problem with 60hz. (30hz is an eyesore)

yea i can't even imagine what mobile games really going to need 240hz screen? do GPUs on mobile processor really that strong? could head to head with nvidia 2080? if it does then yeah 240hz totally make sense

i know, that's why i said sharp phone has become really pathetic :D from what i remember foxconn is the majority shareholder on SHARP. so technically it's a chinese phone which is totally make sense why that phone exist in the first place, from the design,specs,everything

Wouldn't it require a lot more processing power to run at that rate?
Battery 3130mah?!?!?!
I'm confused. Nothing makes any sense about that phone.
Pong at 240hz might be nice (you know that game right? LOL)

Idemitsu's award for long lasting, power efficient OLED.(specifically blue oled) (I just skimmed thru it btw)
https://www.idemitsu.com/news/2018/ide_180518.ht­ml

Samsung uses Idemitsu's materials for blue oled.

Samsung Display co. manufactures the OLED display for Xperia 1? (and 1II?)
Not that its a problem because I like the screen on my Xperia 1.

Tann Hauser, 26 Apr 2020Ahhah... I see what you did here. ;) Is it really japanese tech... moreI know that Pioneer has worked on OLED tech since the late 90s.
Idemitsu, from what I know, is a company full of wizards and alchemists. (LOL just kidding)
They make "performance chemicals" (extremely high purity chemicals)
In order to make high quality OLED, you need high quality materials.
Idemitsu does provides the materials to make OLED. (I don't know exactly who they provide for)

https://www.oled-info.com/idemitsu-kosan
From what I have read here, Idemitsu has been, and is currently developing new OLED tech.
I wouldn't be surprised if other companies used Idemitsu's patents.

QHD at 120Hz on 5000mAh still is as bad as 4K on 3300mAh. Combined with 5G. I'm pretty sure Sony is not stupid to bring you a mobile with those many option on 4000mAh only to get trolled by same people like you that battery is shi$t. So stop complaining. People who are willing to buy a 4K display, will and wants to use 4K. Not a refresh rates. I still don't understand the point of refresh rates. How many times you will scroll twitter at super fast and notification bar in a day?? 60Hz is fine for me. As I said, the same guy who complains over refresh rates, will not even able to tell the difference if was given two separately.

PS: You are the same guy who said 10bit on sony is 16M colours right? Lmao. Get a life man. At least trol like an educated man.

See news and whats happening to OnePlus8 screens...
Too much brightness, and oled goes bust.
It a "delicate flower" tech.
No wonder Sony keeps em at lower max brightness levels.

PS. Wife got fed up with ch/krn phone experimenting, is back to Sony. Got herself a new XZ2 for 300€ just 3 days ago, just for the battery. Has a great good ol' LCD screen.

Is it really japanese tech and supply for them oleds? A link or sth?

  • YogiBear83

And I forgot.. Samsung OLED screens are made on Canon Tokki machines from Idemitsu polymers and patents. :)

My current phone is on the way out and I'm just hoping it survived another 2 months so i can buy the Sony
