    The iPad Pro and the iPhone X were today named Displays of the Year by The Society for Information Display (SID) during the annual Display Industry Awards that will take place at Display Week, a yearly symposium and trade show.

    The display awards are meant to highlight "high-quality, innovative work that is taking place in the display industry." All 2018 award winners cover products that were available for purchase during the 2017 calendar year.

    Apple's 10.5 and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models, released in June of 2017, won an award for the ProMotion display technology introduced in the two devices. ProMotion introduces a 120Hz display refresh rate, which is designed to make all motion content on the screen smoother, crisper, and more responsive. It improves text, scrolling, gaming, Apple Pencil latency, movies, and more.

    The 10.5 and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models feature a 2224 x 1168 and 2732 x 2048 resolution, respectively, with a pixel density of 264 pixels per inch. The two devices also include support for True Tone, which adjusts the white balance of the display to match the ambient lighting in a room, and P3 wide color gamut for more vivid, true-to-life colors.

    Apple's iPhone X was also given a Displays of the Year award for its edge-to-edge Super Retina display that's entirely screen (aside from the notch) with no physical buttons. It offers the first OLED display in an iPhone, with support for HDR and True Tone.

    Other non-Apple devices won awards, too, including the Sharp 70-inch 8K LCD TV and new technologies that include Continental Automotive's 3D Touch surface (the first touchscreen with a 3D surface on top of a display), Colorless Polyimide from Kolon Industries (for creating flexible displays), the Optical In-Display Fingerprint Sensor from Synaptics (for infinity displays with no visible Home button), and the LG UHD Crystal Sound OLED (an OLED panel-integrated speaker).

    All of the Displays of the Year award winners will be recognized during the Display Week awards luncheon, set to take place at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Wednesday, May 23.

    I've put my popcorn in the microwave in anticipation for the haters to run into this article and discredit the award. I can't wait.

    Duh! and who do you think made AMOLED displays for Apple's iPhone X?
    (hint: the same company that won pretty much all previous SID awards).

    What's that weird dent in one side of the X display though? I can't find a setting to remove it. The Note 8 for example doesn't have it. I sure love me a clean, symmetrical rectangle that doesn't intrude on the content.

    I have both of these sitting on my desk right now, actually.

    Samsung may manufacture the display, but it's Apples design. One does have to wonder if Apple has some sort of clause in their contracts stating that a manufacturer can't take any of their designs to be used in their own products (ie, a Super Retina Display ending up on a Galaxy S10 or whatever they call their next one. (If it's S10, I hope Chevrolet sues the pants off them, lol)).

    It's called Face ID, and you robot phone wall huggers want to join the party so bad that your OEMs are adding the notch to house it... without having the tech that would (currently) require it.

    What design? You mean Apple designed the iPhone frame? LOL..

    No, these are the same displays engineered and manufactured by Samsung, tweaked for their customer, Apple. It's not surprising that Apple won the award this year, considering that Samsung won pretty much all previous mobile display award from SID preceding years and all Apple did was to use Samsung's same displays.

    Love the iPad Pro display but when I color grade or edit photos on it they end up looking different on my Mac Mini w/ IPS display.

    They look less saturated and have less contrast

    One touch on my fp reader unlocks much faster though because I never have to align my face to do it, it's basically already unlocked by the time I've brought the phone into my field of sight...?

    And I'm still not seeing a notch on the Note 8 nor the upcoming Note 9 seems to have it.

    Literally no one forgets that because it's discussed ad nauseam. What people forget is that Apple's Samsung screen is better than Samsung's Samsung screen.

    Let's hope the ProMotion technology comes to all Apple devices this year, and the iOS 12/macOS 10.14 updates fix all of the lag and stuttering in the operating systems.

    Speaking of which... 20 days until WWDC and the next betas! :eek::D

    Well, it is easy for the iPads to win when there is almost no new competition from Android manufacturers!

    And no, I am neutral on this, heck I have been sourcing for an Android tablet that can go head to head with the iPad Pro for months!
