OLED uses organic compounds that illuminate when exposed to electric currents. So backlights aren't required for OLEDs, and hence they're significantly thinner than usual LCDs.

Popular variants of OLED include:

Active-matrix OLED (AMOLED)
This type of display is found in modern high-end smart phones and are making progress toward low-power, low-cost and large-size applications. The key advantages of such displays are:
· High Perceived Luminance
· Contrast ratio
· Wide Viewing Angle
· True Colors
· Faster Response
One major disadvantage is the difficulty in viewing under direct sunlight.

Super AMOLED
A variant to the AMOLED display, this display addresses the issue of sun reflection. Other improvements include:
· Brighter screens
· Reduced power consumption
