Default Burn-in of the screen?

Is it possible to burn the screen of the S9 when it has been on for a long time or don't AMOLED screen suffer from afterimage after long periods of showing the same info?

I would like to use the flipclock as a nightstand alarm clock, but I don't want to damage the screen in the long run.

Could anyone elaborate on this, please?

I recall reading something about oled and this very issue, but I don't remember whether it said it was a problem or not.
Here's an alarm clock that doesn't cost $200:

Wouldn't it be just a clock? How are you going to hear the alarm? Why don't you just use a cell phone as an alarm clock like normal people. ;^)

Heh =D Try using the alarm clock on the Nokia Xpressmusic 5220 and you'll be deaf after a couple of mornings. The alarm clock just increases in volume and there is no way to turn that off. So, I can understand why he'd like to use it as a(n alarm) clock.

What I'd like is a bluetooth speaker that just turn on when I want my s9 to wake me...

Why not just buy a cheapo $5 alarm clock, and not risk ruining your S9?
