Nokia N9 FWVGA AMOLED Uses PenTile Matrix, Here's the Proof

Oct 13, 2011

GSM Arena have been busy with the Nokia N9 and one of their first findings was that the FWVGA AMOLED display is using a PenTile matrix, instead of a regular RGB one.

It’s the same kind of matrix that we saw with Samsung’s first-gen Super AMOLEDs, where each pixel is composed of two subpixels rather than three. This gives less room for sub-pixel rendering and reduces the effective resolution, when displaying super fine detail.


Let’s just make one thing clear – with a pixel density of 251 ppi, the Nokia N9 still has an amazingly sharp display and it’s not that easy to spot the side-effects of the PenTile matrix. Still, if you look really closely, you will be able to spot the familiar dottiness.

Now here’s the promised proof – a close-up shot of the Nokia N9 pixel grid. Notice that each pixels consists of one green sub-pixels and one double-sized subpixel that’s alternating between blue and red.
