In December 2018, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against Samsung Electronics for allegedly misleadingly advertising phones and tablets with PenTile screens – including Wave and Galaxy devices – as being high resolution when, according to plaintiffs, the screens are not high resolution because they do not have the represented number of pixels. (According to the complaint, PenTile screens omit half of the red and blue subpixels as other types of screens and therefore have half of the advertised pixels and two-thirds of the advertised subpixels.) (Chu et al v. Samsung Electronics America, Inc. and Samsung Electronics Co.
, LTD, Case No. 18-cv-11742, S. D. NY.)
