Definition: PenTile

A display technology from Samsung that uses clusters of five (penta) subpixels. Originally developed by Clairvoyante, PenTile uses fewer subpixels, and subsequently less power, for the total number of pixels on screen than the conventional RGB subpixel method. The PenTile method is used on smartphones to prolong battery life. See OLED.
