AMOLED

Active-Matrix OLED

AMOLED is one of two types of OLED display. The AM (active-matrix) type has a transistor next to each pixel, allowing faster response time. This makes AMOLED suitable for displaying video, and is therefore the most common type of OLED display for a main phone display.

See: OLED

The other type is passive-matrix, which is not ideal for video. This type is better suited for secondary displays and main displays of some low-end phones.
