Definition - What does Active Matrix Organic Light-Emitting Diode (AMOLED) mean?
Techopedia explains Active Matrix Organic Light-Emitting Diode (AMOLED)
There are many advantages in using AMOLEDs. Compared to other display technologies, AMOLEDs have a higher contrast ratio and a faster response time. They are lightweight, provide great flexibility and are also capable of low-temperature processing. They have high light efficiency and surpass passive-matrix organic light-emitting counterparts by providing the same performance but consuming significantly less power. AMOLEDs have an unlimited viewing angle and are also self-emissive. Their production cost is potentially the lowest among existing technologies, and they can also display a wider range of colors than LCD. AMOLEDs are favored in portable electronic devices because their battery power consumption is significantly less. For the same reason, they are favored for large displays such as billboards, electronic signs and large-screen televisions. The fast refresh rates of AMOLEDs also make them suitable for videos.
