The Society for Information Display (SID) has announced that the iPad Pro and iPhone X have both won Displays of the Year during the annual Display Industry Awards that will take place at Display Week, a yearly symposium and trade show.
These awards demonstrate “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 inch and 12.9 inch iPad Pro models, released in June 2017, won an award for the ProMotion display technology introduced in both devices. ProMotion introduced a 120Hz display refresh rate, designed to make all motion content on the screen smoother and more responsive. Users can benefit from improved text, scrolling, gaming, Apple Pencil latency, movies, and more.
The iPhone X was also given an award for its edge-to-edge Super Retina display that’s entirely screen with no physical buttons. The latest iPhone offered the first ever OLED display with support for HDR and True Tone.
Other non-Apple devices that won awards included the Sharp 70 inch 8K LCD TV, the Optical In-Display Fingerprint Sensor from Synaptics, and the LG UHD Crystal Sound OLED.
The Display Week awards is set to take place at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Wednesday, May 23.
