The display is based on a new pixel architecture dubbed PenTile. It consists of a pattern of red, green, blue, and white pixels (RGBW). The power savings come from dynamically adjusting the brightness of the display.
The added white pixel gives brighter whites, darker blacks, and sharper fonts.RGB displays render images by assigning a color and luminance (brightness) to an entire RGB-triplet as a whole pixel, adjusting its three RGB subpixels to set a single addressable point.
Images on a PenTile RGBW panel are subpixel rendered, meaning they are drawn at the subpixel level (the individual points of light), rather than to the whole pixels of an RGB stripe display. In fact "pixels" in the traditional sense have been eliminated in PenTile RGBW displays; individual subpixels are not restricted to use in one pixel group, but instead participate in multiple "logical" pixels in their surrounding vicinity.
Subpixel rendering dramatically increases addressability and enables the sophisticated image processing used in PenTile RGBW™ displays.

Miranda Lambert nominated for 9 CMA Awards this Year
Miranda Lambert showed her soft side for a 7 year old fan with cancer. She kept wiping her tears off when she sang “Over You” for a 7 year old cancer patient in Texas on Saturday. And she was also nominated for 9 CMA awards this year.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
