Today, a Chinese leaker revealed that Samsung E6 substrate high-frequency dimming 2K high-resolution screen had been successfully shipped. However, the high-frequency dimming is not the only selling point of the new Samsung display panel. The shipped 2160Hz PWM screen is far stronger than the low-frequency PWM + fake DC solution mass-produced last year.
Compared to the E5 screen, the Samsung E6 screen is expected to achieve a better brightness boost. As a comparison, DisplayMate tests show that the Samsung E5 OLED screen has 112% DCI-P3 and 140% sRGB color gamut coverage and supports 980 nits of global peak brightness and 1508 nits of low APL brightness.
Snapdragon 8 Gen 2
More importantly, the next-gen Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip is compatible with this display material. So there is every reason to think that upcoming flagship phones with this chip onboard will also sport the next-gen Samsung E6 display panel.
In late July, the same source said that the Samsung E6 substrate screen was ready to ship. Plus, as the new flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 will be uncovered in November, the new models with these two will appear in the market before the end of the year. As you guess, the top brands will launch handsets with the new display panel. Among them, VIVO, Xiaomi, and OPPO have already purchased this new display panel.
It is worth mentioning that several major manufacturers have begun testing the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 (SM8550). Compared with the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 (SM8475), the comprehensive energy efficiency of the new flagship processor will be improved by at least 15%. But we also expect a performance boost in terms of both CPU and GPU. That’s not a secret that this chip will still use TSMC’s 4nm process. Thus, there will be no difference between this and the previous model in this sense.
