In May, OnePlus 7 Pro also received the similar rating from Display evaluator, DisplayMate. While the Samsung Galaxy Note10 phones are available to pre-book, they will be launching on 23 August. The Galaxy Note10 features a smaller 6.3-inch screen and the Galaxy Note10+ comes with a 6.8-inch screen. However, the rating is only applicable for Note10+. Both the devices feature a punch hole camera at the centre which gives the phone a nice screen-to-body ratio.
As DisplayMate’s President, Dr. Raymond M. Soneira, explained,
“The level of display performance and excellence has been increasing each year, and the Galaxy Note10+ has again raised the bar significantly higher.”
According to Soneira, the Galaxy Note10+ possesses “the most innovative and high-performance smartphone display that [DisplayMate has] ever lab tested.” During the evaluation, Samsung’s latest flagship outperformed its predecessor in several key categories, including brightness, reflectance ratio, color accuracy and blue light reduction.
The Galaxy Note10+’s peak brightness score of 1,308 nits is an improvement of 25 percent over the Galaxy Note9 (1,050 nits), while its screen reflectance ratio is the lowest that DisplayMate has ever measured on a smartphone (4.3 percent). The smartphones’ combination of high screen brightness and low screen reflectance allows them to offer better screen readability, picture quality and color accuracy in bright environments, such as when users are outdoors.
The Galaxy Note10+’s 0.4 Just Noticeable Color Difference (JNCD) is an improvement on the Galaxy Note9’s 0.5 JNCD score. Put simply, the closer a display’s JNCD score is to zero, the more accurate its colors are. The Galaxy Note10+’s 0.4 JNCD score indicates that colors depicted on its display are virtually indistinguishable from perfect.
