Description

The honor Note 8's 6.6-inch, 2K resolution display is certainly eyebrow-raising material. Honor touts it as ideal for multimedia, productivity, and gaming, which makes sense considering the immense screen real estate and pixel density. Sensibly, there's split-screen feature to make the most of it. Moreover, the handset uses a Super AMOLED panel. Speaking of gaming, the Kirin 955 chipset with 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM ought to be able to handle intense modern games. The honor Note 8 also brings a 13MP rear camera with a large F2.0 aperture, an RGBW sensor, optical image stabilization, and a bespoke image processing engine. The front cam is an 8MP unit, said to be brighter than average to facilitate video chat.

  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 445 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
