Galaxy Note 7 specs leak from China

Galaxy Note 7 specs leak from China

The next Samsung smartphone with an S Pen has appeared in a new set of specs leaked from microblogger "I Ice". This new set of specifications seems to confirm several of the more important details we'd been told in the past, like a 5.7-inch display with Super AMOLED technology. That same display is tipped to have 2K resolution (that's 2560 x 1800, like the Galaxy Note 5), and will come in two iterations - one with an Edge, one without.

OnePlus 3 Review Part II: Display VS iPhone 6s, Galaxy S7, and more

We're about to show you what the OnePlus 3's display looks like near the rest of the top smartphones on the market today. This means we're looking at the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the iPhone 6s. It means we're looking at the LG G5 and the HTC 10. It means we're comparing to the Nexus 6P and the Huawei P9, too. We're looking for brightness, color intensity, and - to a lesser extent - we're looking at screen size, too.

Galaxy X’s rumored foldable display appears before official release

Galaxy X’s rumored foldable display appears before official release

We've heard rumors for years that we'll be getting flexible displays that you can roll or fold up. We'll see a demo, and then we don't hear anything about it for months. Well, the more things change, the more they stay the same. We've most recently heard that the Samsung Galaxy X will be treated to a display that you will be able to fold up and stick in your pocket. And this week, Samsung will be showing off a screen that can do exactly that.

Folding display Samsung Galaxy X said one of 5 2017 flagships

Samsung's first smartphone with a true folding display is tipped to launch in 2017, one of a rumored five flagship Galaxy handsets for next year. The South Korean firm has already made good use of its skills producing flexible OLED panels, with the Galaxy S7 edge having two wraparound edges where the display curves around the sides of the device.

iPhone 7 may be Apple’s biggest launch ever with Samsung’s OLED display

iPhone 7 may be Apple’s biggest launch ever with Samsung’s OLED display

Reports this week suggest that Apple's next big iPhone launch won't only be a big event because it's a "tick" year in their "tick-tock" schedule - it'll be big because of their Samsung connection. It's not unheard of for Apple to use Samsung parts in their smartphones - they've been doing it since the very beginning. What is unheard of thus far is Apple's use of an OLED display panel from Samsung on any one of their devices. With the use of an OLED panel, the iPhone will be brighter and more intense than ever before.

iPhone could get AMOLED screen, wireless charging next year

iPhone could get AMOLED screen, wireless charging next year

Apple might not be radically changing the iPhone. At least not this year. But it won't be long before it does. Contradicting his own earlier report, Ming-Chi Kuo, the famed Apple analyst and prophet of upcoming products and features, has pulled forward the timetable for Apple's somewhat new yet familiar next iPhone, which could be the iPhone 8. Instead of 2018, it will be the 2017 iPhone that will get the rumored new display material and even wireless charging. Despite the new features, however, it could be wrapped in a design similar to older iPhones.

Samsung Galaxy S7 could have Always On screen

Samsung Galaxy S7 could have Always On screen

This latest speculation is both technologically possible but might also be a bit too much, both in its goal and Samsung's legal action. In South Korea at least, it has tried to obtain the trademark for "Always On Display", a phrase that has already been used quite a lot in the tech industry, from ebook readers, to smartwatches and even to some smartphones. If so, what is Samsung's purpose for an almost unreasonable claim? With the unveiling of the Galaxy S7 nearing, it could very well be a feature that the Samsung flagship will advertise greatly,

LG pumps $8.7bn into OLED for your car, TV and wrist

LG pumps $8.7bn into OLED for your car, TV and wrist

LG really, really wants your next TV, smartwatch, and car to use an OLED panel and, preferably, one that's come off its new $8.71bn production line. The company's panel arm, LG Display, has announced a whopping 1.84 trillion South Korean Won investment into a brand new facility dubbed P10, which will cater for what LG predicts will be blockbuster demand for OLED in a range of sizes.

Apple Watch launch, sales policy, AMOLED screen details

Apple Watch launch, sales policy, AMOLED screen details

Apple Stores are getting a makeover to make way for the Apple Watch launch, which has the capacity to make or break the entire smartwatch product genre. As we edge closer to the launch date, we're learning more and more about Apple's process from manufacturing to the sales floor. Apple Stores are rolling out new display cases and tables where customers can try on the watch, by appointment only. Also, to prevent people from hogging Apple Watches during try-on appointments, time slots are limited to 15 minutes. Apple is really trying to keep things running smoothly for the launch, which is in great contrast to the Apple launches in the past where customers camped out overnight for the latest devices.

Samsung Galaxy S6 topples Galaxy Note 4 as OLED king

Samsung Galaxy S6 topples Galaxy Note 4 as OLED king

With Samsung's latest flagship fully unveiled and, if rumors are true, out in the market next month, it's time to compare and contrast its features with current and past smartphones. Naturally, DisplayMate is pouncing on the opportunity to test out the Galaxy S6's, as well as the Galaxy S6 edge's, screens to rank it against Samsung's own Galaxy Note 4 and, of course, the iPhone 6. Perhaps it isn't surprising that DisplayMate would conclude that the Galaxy S6 so far has the best OLED display in the market, but it isn't just because of the pixels.

YotaPhone 2 first-impressions – Odd E Ink Allure

YotaPhone 2 first-impressions – Odd E Ink Allure

You have to give the team at Yota credit for not giving up on their dual-display smartphone dream. The original YotaPhone was a curious - but flawed - riff on the Android smartphone, a regular screen on one side and an E Ink panel on the back, let down by immature software and hardware. Now, with the YotaPhone 2, the company believes both concept and product are ready for the mass market. I’ve been trying the new smartphone out this week ahead of sales kicking off today, and it’s clear there certainly are advantages over opting for more screens, rather than just bigger ones. Read on for some first-impressions.

Galaxy Note Edge unboxed on video

The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is one slick looking smartphone with its curved screen wrapping around one side. The idea is to allow you to see notifications and icons on the side and to use it as a ticker or status display. We already know that the device will be available in the US on November 7 and it is already available in Japan. Samsung has warned that the Note Edge will be a limited edition device so anyone wanting to pick on up should get it quickly.
