Galaxy S24 Could Display HDR Images Faithfully with Ultra HDR Support

Published

on


This year, during its I/O event, Google unveiled Ultra HDR for Android 14, a feature that lets you capture HDR images and movies and properly show them on HDR displays. It isn’t going to be in One UI 6 stable release when it comes, but there are rumors that Samsung is planning to include it in the Galaxy S24 series. Rumours have it that Super AMOLED panels will be available on all three models of the Galaxy S24 lineup. Additional rumors state that the brightness of those screens may reach up to 2,500 nits. The brightness, contrast, and color gamut that come with HDR images and films would thus be well shown on them.

The whole Galaxy S24 series will get Ultra HDR from Samsung, as per tipster Ice Universe, in order to capitalize on the anticipated brightness improvement. On the majority of Android phones, HDR images and videos are mapped to standard dynamic range (SDR) and then stored. As a result of this, photographs lose a great deal of information, appearing washed out in contrast to other photographs or videos. That being said, Ultra HDR preserves the original 10-bit HDR footage, preserving brightness, contrast, and color gamut. Android phones can capture and view HDR photographs using Ultra HDR. Since the files are ordinary JPEGs, they can be used with SDR screens without any issues.
