Samsung improved smartphone display with Galaxy S22 series as they introduced a new Vision Booster technology and adaptive refresh rate

Last month, Samsung Galaxy S22 series smartphones were released. The smartphones, known as the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22 Plus, and Galaxy S22 Ultra, are the company’s first flagship releases of 2022.

The smartphones, in keeping with the company’s Galaxy S series legacy, have impressive features and specs. At a recent round table, Byung Duk (BD) Yang, vice president (R&D), Samsung Electronics, discussed how the new Galaxy S22 series addresses some of the biggest customer problem points related to a smartphone display.

The new Vision Booster technology in Galaxy S22 series display helps in better visibility in daylight

Based on our own internal research, we heard directly from consumers that the auto visibility was a primary source of frustration with smartphones. Additionally, we also know that long battery life is one of the most essential functions of a smartphone,” said Yang. He said that the challenge was to find a solution to provide auto visibility without compromising battery life. For this, Yang said, “We increased the peak brightness of the Galaxy S22 Ultra up to 1780 nits, developed a new feature called Vision Booster.”

Explaining the new display technology, Yang said, “Vision Booster technology uses our new algorithm to enhance the outdoor visibility of the display in direct sunlight or situations where reflections are permanent on the display. The Vision Booster will analyze the brightness contribution histogram and then remap the tone of the image to maximize the color contrast.”

In simple terms, Vision Booster improves display visibility by “considering the light intensity of the surroundings and its influence on the display.” The result is a clear picture even under direct sunlight. Presently, the Vision Booster technology is limited to the new Galaxy S22 Ultra.


Yang also discussed the new Samsung phones’ adaptive refresh rate. In addition, the phones’ refresh rates have been a source of contention, with Samsung reportedly quietly updating the specifications sheet of the Galaxy S22 and its Plus variant, which now states that the lowest refresh rate that their screens can hit is 48Hz, rather than the 10Hz that the company initially advertised.

A smartphone display kit had a refresh rate of 60 Hertz as recently as three years ago. That all changed when Samsung released the Galaxy S20, which had our first display with 120-hertz refresh rates. Since then, we have launched the first automatic refresh rate smartphone display, which optimizes the screen from 120 Hertz to 10 hertz based on the context and participation destroyed” Yang explained.
