Have you heard of a super amoled screen fixing itself?

I dropped a S9+ on the floor

severely cracked the glass

the screen was strobing black and white
I let the phone die because touch screen was unresponsive due to the strobing.

now, I plug it into my pc to clear data and it turned on perfectly, functioning correctly.

I have searched for explanation but only see "amoled burn in" and "amoled is more fragile than the glass on top of it."

It's not unusual to see a phone with smashed glass but an otherwise fully functional display. My best guess is the display cable connection was a bit flakey from the impact when the glass got smashed. So the display was always fine. Similarly, you could have cracked solder joints on the main board that prevent the device from functioning but give it a few nudges and everything is back to normal.
