One of the most anticipated devices this year is the Samsung Galaxy S II, which is bringing a new display technology – Super AMOLED Plus (also found in the Droid Charge). Of course, this is simply the next generation of the same screen technology that Samsung has been using for pretty much all of its Android devices (Super AMOLED).

Since the announcement of this new technology, we have all been wondering how much Super AMOLED displays can really be improved. Super AMOLED displays provide about the richest display experiences, and it is one of the main reasons why some people prefer Samsung devices. Such technology is already known for being among the best in the market, and it seems unlikely that this “Plus” can make that huge of a difference (at least to the naked eye). For all of those wondering, Engadget has put together a video that proves how Super AMOLED Plus will provide better definition, by providing more sub-pixels per pixel.

Super AMOLED display (8 sub-pixels per pixel) vs. Super AMOLED Plus display (12 sub-pixels per pixel)

As you can see in the images, the older generation had more elongated green sub-pixels, while the blue and red ones are shorter and thicker. Super AMOLED Plus technology has equal size and quantity of the different colored sub-pixels, as well as having them pressed together tighter (hence the higher sub-pixelation).

I personally haven’t had a chance to see one of these Super AMOLED Plus displays in person, but I assume that the change should be almost unnoticeable. To Check out the video, head over to Engadget and take a closer look. Do you guys think this new technology is that much better? Has anyone seen one of these yet?
