What does AMOLED mean?
Active-Matrix Organic Light-Emitting Diode (AMOLED) is a hybrid display technology made from organic materials that emit light when electricity is applied. AMOLED does not require a backlight to provide brightness. The active matrix technology, which is the technology behind the addressing of pixels, leads to faster pixel switching response times, better picture quality in the form of brilliant colors and wide viewing angles.
