Samsung’s Galaxy S4 will be their first device to feature a full 1080p AMOLED display, but the new screen will be different on more than just the surface. A new report says Samsung is utilizing a new AMOLED technology called Green PHOLED to produced a display that is 25 percent more battery efficient than previous Super AMOLED formats. The new display utilizes phosphorescence (hence the PHOLED name) over fluorescence to achieve its lower power draw, an element that could go a long way in adding to the Galaxy S4’s battery life.
The same reports again floats the idea of touchless gestures being introduced in with the GS4, as well. The new system could allow for Air View-like functionality using a finger instead of the Note’s S Pen. A user could preview a gallery item simply by hovering their finger over it.
The Galaxy S4 is set for its official debut next week. March 14th is the date to watch for Samsung’s biggest unveiling of the year.
