Nokia: Sun Shines on Nokia’s Best Display (Lumia 920)October 11, 2012 No Comments
Nokia has gone more in depth about how great the display is on the Lumia 920.
Building on ClearBlack
First is the high brightness mode, which increases the luminance of the screen by 20 per cent in sunlight conditions. This improvement has been achieved with a better understanding of how LEDs work and being able to maximise their potential.
Despite the low reflectance and high brightness display, overcoming the powerful display hazing effect of the sun is not an easy task and leaves room for further improvement. The next innovation therefore is the sunlight readability enhancement algorithm, which is able to tune the display content on the fly so that the details are much clearer and crisper even in direct sunlight.
Power to perform
“The high brightness mode is driving the LED with a higher current and producing 20 per cent more brightness, which means that the backlight is also consuming 20 per cent more power,” says Jussi.
“On the other hand, due to low reflectance of the optical stack, our estimate is that typically only 5-10 per cent of the time will you be in extremely bright conditions where you will need this high brightness mode. So in total, it will not be that heavy on the battery.”
