The new iPhone 4 features a new IPS LCD Display with 960x640px resolution. Apple calls it a Retina display. In the WWDC 10 keynote, Apple's Steve Jobs trashed OLED and said that the Retina Display is much better than OLED.
Samsung of course is not happy about this. The Korean Herald (via ) has a report with Samsung statements defending the new Super AM-OLED display found in the Galaxy S against the Apple Retina display.
Samsung says that their OLED display uses 30% less power and has a "free viewing angle). Samsung down plays Apple's higher resolution. A Samsung spokesperson calls the visibility difference in the range of 3 to 4%.
The Samsung Galaxy S has a resolution of 800x480px and the Apple iPhone 4 resolution is 960x640px. The screen size of the Galaxy S is bigger with 4-inch compared to the 3.5-inch iPhone 4 screen. This means the density of the iPhone 4 retina display is much higher.
I find it kind of amusing that Apple beat Samsung in the higher specs game. Usually Samsung announces things like hyper mega resolution camera phones and what not. Now Apple has a screen on the iPhone 4 that out-specs anything Samsung offers.
