Iphone Reflection has a pattern

In summary, a person was playing around with the reflections on their office wall and noticed something strange reflected in the light. It seems that the LCD reflective display used in their phone is causing some sort of specular reflection.f

Hi all! I'm sitting in the office on what would normally be a dive day so I'm slightly over observant.

The sun is coming in heavy through my window, and holding my iPhone I began playing with the reflection on my office wall it produced.

The reflection at first was no different then any light reflection I've seen in the pass, ie. off a watch face, piece of glass, phone etc.

Then I noticed something in the rectangle of light on my wall, that was reflected off my iphone. The rectangle of light seemingly has three connected "H" marks of darker light inside the rectangle.

What is going on here? Internal components the eye can't pick up robing some of the reflected light thru absorption?

Wanted to get a pic but was using my phone to produce the reflection...lol

Thanks everyone and have a beautiful fall!

Upon reflection my supposition would be that the multiple polarizations involved in producing the LCD reflective display is the culprit. I am unfamiliar with this exact circumstance so will not speculate further about this specular reflection.
