Samsung’s Galaxy Note7 display has drawn high praise from DisplayMate, which has labelled it the “best performing smartphone display” it has ever tested.Samsung unveiled the Note7 earlier this month, with it sporting a 5.7″ quad-HD dual-edge Super AMOLED 2560 x 1440 (518 ppi) display.
DisplayMate put the Note7 through its paces, noting that “Samsung has been systematically improving OLED display performance with every Galaxy generation since 2010”.
“The Galaxy Note7 provides many major and important state-of-the-art display enhancements, with mobile OLED display technology now advancing faster than ever,” DisplayMate states.
“The Galaxy Note7 is the most innovative and high-performance smartphone display that we have ever tested. It leapfrogs the displays on the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S7 to become the best performing smartphone display ever.”
DisplayMate found that the Note7 broke or equalled display performance records across a number of categories, including:
– Widest colour gamuts for current content (DCI-P3 for digital cinema and Adobe RGB for digital photos)

DisplayMate notes that, compared to the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S7, “almost every display lab test and measurement shows some improvements”.
The Note7 is set to launch in Australia on August 19.
