The newly announced Samsung Galaxy S24 lineup brings an exciting new display feature called Adaptive Color Tone. This technology dynamically adjusts the screen’s colors and white balance to match real-world lighting conditions. It builds on the existing Eye Comfort Shield blue light filter with even more natural viewing.
Adaptive Color Tone utilizes the S24’s front and rear cameras to continually analyze ambient light. Under warm, low-light settings, the display shifts to a more yellowish tone to reduce eye strain. In bright, daylight environments, the screen turns slightly cooler in tone to maintain color accuracy.
This automatic adjustment results in content that closely matches real-world colors for a more natural viewing experience. Samsung states that Adaptive Color Tone allows the S24’s Dynamic AMOLED 2X display to adapt to different lighting for optimal visibility.
The technology works seamlessly in the background once enabled, continuously fine-tuning the vibrant OLED display. It brings a similar benefit to Apple’s True Tone system on iPhone and iPad models.
For the S24 Ultra, Adaptive Color Tone has another advantage – reducing reflections. Samsung says the Ultra’s screen includes Corning’s toughest Gorilla Glass yet, with anti-reflective coating that cuts glare by 75%. This AR coating, also used on foldable displays, significantly improves outdoor visibility.
Adaptive Color Tone joins existing S24 display improvements like higher peak brightness and better outdoor visibility. By tuning color temperature to ambient light, it takes things a step further for a more natural, lifelike viewing experience.
S24 series smartphones will be the first to capture and share native HDR photos directly on Instagram, by natively processing HDR, S24 series avoids the loss of quality from converting to standard dynamic range. Shadows remain detailed, highlights stay bright, and colors pop just as they should. It’s a major upgrade of the Instagram photography experience.
The feature highlights Samsung’s constant innovation to enhance the industry-leading OLED smartphone displays. For users, it means content that’s easier on the eyes in any environment. Along with its crisp image quality and smooth 120Hz refresh rates, the S24 series may have the most advanced mobile displays yet.
