A lot of questions were raised as to why Samsung did not use a Super AMOLED HD Plus display on the Galaxy S III. The Korean company finally answered this question at the on-going CTIA to a reporter of MobileBurn that Super AMOLED HD Plus displays donrsquo;t last as long as the Super AMOLED HD, and so the company went with the Super AMOLED HD display on the S3.
Super AMOLED HD displays have a PenTile (RGBG, 2 green pixels for every blue pixel) sub-pixel arrangement, while Super AMOLED HD Plus has a RGB sub-pixel arrangement. The blue sub-pixels on the Super AMOLED screen degrade the fastest, so since the HD Plus has more blue sub-pixels, the display will not last as long as the former.
A reason for everything !
