Samsung has trademarked a new "SAMOLED" name in the Smartphone Displays category, according to a new patent registered by the company at the Korean Intellectual Property Office as well as the United States Patent and Trademark Office (viaLetsGoDigital).
The new display innovation is said to be an upgraded AMOLED panel and it is likely to debut on the upcoming Galaxy S11 series.

SAMOLED could be an acronym for "Smooth AMOLED"?
The patented name suggests a new version of the AMOLED screen, which will replace the Dynamic AMOLED screen we saw on the Galaxy S10 series. However, we don't know what this additional 'S' stands for.
Further, according to details shared by Evan Blass, the 6.2/6.4-inch and 6.7-inch S11 models will be offered in both 5G and LTE variants. However, the 6.9-inch S11 variant will only be offered with 5G support.
This implies, Samsung is expected to launch five handsets in the S11 line-up and three of them will support the next-generation network.
