Galaxy S6 edge put under the microscope, reveals Diamond Pixels display matrix
posted by Daniel P. / May 05, 2015, 8:06 AM
Ever wondered if the unique side-sloping Galaxy S6 edge display still sports Samsung's Diamond Pixels matrix arrangement? This offshoot of the PenTile matrix has been used by Samsung to achieve the ever-higher resolutions of its Super AMOLED displays before, after all, most recently in the Quad HD panel of the Note 4.
Well, now you can answer this pressing question straight from the source, as the S6 edge display has been put under the microscope, along with its two cameras, the adjacent LED flash and biometric sensor combo, the volume button, and the SIM card slot.
As you can clearly see from the microscopic dive into the 5.1" QHD S6 edge screen, it indeed uses the Diamond Pixels arrangement to achieve that record high pixel density, but here the light-emitting diodes are layered on a plastic, instead of a glass substrate, allowing Samsung to bend it from both sides, and wrap the phone's edges in living, breathing, glowing pixels. Pretty fascinating, take a look at all the tiny details below.

Closer look. The sharpness is equal to LG G4 and far far ahead HTC M9. 3zL4KL7Mw#t=68

Pentile arrangement is a cheap, disgusting cost saving measurement that can harm people's eye sight.

Except the diamond displays on Samsung flagship. More accurate, sharper, better contrast, better white point. All proven by scientific testing. Speaking of color, your tuchis is glowing in the infrared.
