The sunlight legibility is good as well, thanks to 950 nits peak brightness. It has 100% DCI-P3, so the colors are vibrant.

The phone has a 2160Hz high-frequency dimming technology. In dark environments (brightness below 90 nits) where DC dimming can’t work, the phone will automatically switch to 2160Hz PWM dimming mode to maintain accurate colors on display with a more comfortable eye experience, said the company.
