Samsung trademarks the term 'Hyper Bright Display' ahead of the Galaxy S 4 launch

Samsung trademarks the term 'Hyper Bright Display' ahead of the Galaxy S 4 launch
A US Patent and Trademark Office filing reveals that Samsung has just recently coined the term Hyper Bright Display, and rushed to trademark it Monday so nobody can call dibs on the moniker.

We know what you are thinking - the leaked Galaxy S IV seems to sport a pretty luminant display that is unlike Super AMOLED panels we've seen so far on Sammy's handsets, including the Note II, which tops 400 nits of brightness. It may or may not be the case that the Hyper Bright Display term has been trademarked to indicate the Galaxy S IV screen, but we certainly hope so.

Even if it turns out wishful thinking, it's heartwarming to know that a maker of Samsung's magnitude has turned focus on display brightness, which is often one of the weak points in those panels, as they get to be used outside pretty often.

The speaker volume is low, but the in call volume on my note 2 is is painfully loud. until its at 1/4 volume, then its too quiet.

maybe it's my rom (Eclipse) but my in call volume for my note2 is INSANE!!! Turned all the way down it's still too loud! I'll take that though because with my GNexus, it was so damn quiet I couldn't hear anyone EVER.

Wow indeed, look at the leaked photos, warm color tones, high contrast, deep blacks, natural white, good brightness. I'm a little worried about the blue subpixel though and it's life expectancy.

They made the screen brighter. I don't see what the big rave is.

Apple made the iPhone 5 screen slightly more saturated. Don't see what the big rave was.

I think the one on the galaxy s3 is better (I don't think that is the real phone)

It looks like the S3. I'm not really convinced.

I hope the S4 is supplied with a battery enough to hold all these features.

S4 has the highest battery and endurance rating among all other 2013 flagships upto now. Even the lg opt pro didn't impress with 3140mah battery.

Did you see that 'tomorrow'?? You travelled to the future and back?? To something that's not officially released, you've got a real deal of details there.

Where can we see these ratings,who made these ratings? Or it is your troll fantasies?

i don't think that will be the case given that they will be using IR for gesture scrolling.

a bright 1080p display is bad news for any battery but given Samsung track record, battery life is the least of my worries.

Simple solution: Tone down the brightness... Hard solution: wait for a custom ROM with better power management and maybe a lower brightness setting... Costly solution: Buy a bigger batter with a modified cover or batter juice case. Best solution: Don't buy it if it's a battery hog.

Hyper bright display, this means that the SIV will have very nice viewing angles, great job Samsung! :)

33. SleepingOz unregistered

The Galaxy S series has always had good viewing angles, thanks to AMOLED technology.

Better viewing angles are one of the best advertisements there is. What better way to entice other people to buy a phone than seeing the pristine screen from the side and making them want to see and hold one up close :D
