ZTE Open II

AMOLED displays, also known as active matrix OLED displays, offer higher refresh rates and consume less power than other types of displays.

5.every pixel has three subpixels
Samsung Galaxy Note 9 (Qualcomm Snapdragon 845)
ZTE Open II

The device has a display with three full subpixels per pixel, resulting in a sharp and crisp picture. Pixels in some displays (like AMOLED) share one subpixel to preserve space. This can result in a less crisp, slightly blurred image.

6.has an IPS screen
Samsung Galaxy Note 9 (Qualcomm Snapdragon 845)
ZTE Open II

IPS (In-Plane Switching) is a technology used for LCDs. It was designed to overcome the main limitations of normal TFTs TN-matrices: relatively slow response times, small viewing angles and low quality color reproduction.

2.Uses big.LITTLE technology
Samsung Galaxy Note 9 (Qualcomm Snapdragon 845)
ZTE Open II

Using big.LITTLE technology, a chip can switch between two sets of processor cores in order to maximise performance and battery life. For example, when playing a game the more powerful cores will be used to increase performance, whereas checking email will use the less powerful cores to maximise battery life.

3.Has integrated graphics
Samsung Galaxy Note 9 (Qualcomm Snapdragon 845)
ZTE Open II

With integrated graphics you don’t need to buy a separate graphics card.

4.Has out-of-order execution

A laser autofocus system quickly determines the depth of the subject you want to focus on, allowing you to take photos much faster.

For example

Huawei Mate 20 X

4.Has a dual-lens (or multi-lens) main camera
Samsung Galaxy Note 9 (Qualcomm Snapdragon 845)
ZTE Open II

A dual-lens camera captures two images and overlays them. This technology creates sharper images, especially in low light conditions, and allows you to use effects such as softening the background.

5.Has phase detection autofocus for photos
Samsung Galaxy Note 9 (Qualcomm Snapdragon 845)
ZTE Open II

A phase detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus, allowing for sharper images.

6.has a brand lens
