IHS says 4K TVs are “transitional products” until AMOLED is widespread

If you're a fan of the ultra-gigantic and super-high-definition television environment that exists amongst the super-rich, then you'll be glad to know that more 4G resolution televisions are on the way! While shipments of 4K LCD-TVs across the planet are only up to 4,000 units throughout 2012, they'll ramp up to 2.1 million units in 2017 - that accounting for less than 1 percent of all LCD shipments in both cases.

At IFA 2012 we've gotten our first glimpse of the next phablet, the Samsung Galaxy Note II - now it's time to compare to the original from one year ago to see what's been improved. First you'll notice that the casing for the device has taken on a whole lot more "Galaxy S III" styling, just as the original Note did with the Galaxy S II. The back and front are more than likely going to feature different color combinations even beyond the blue and white we've seen thus far.

Audi announces AMOLED rear-view display for R8 e-tron

Audi has announced that its upcoming R8 e-tron will be featuring a digital AMOLED rear-view "mirror" when it arrives later this year. This isn't the first time Audi has implemented such a display in one of its cars, as we saw this same technology in its Audi R18 race car. This means that conventional rear-view mirrors are out - at least in the R8 e-tron - and are being replaced with a 7.7-inch AMOLED screen.

Samsung picks Pentile for Galaxy S III

Samsung picks Pentile for Galaxy S III

The Samsung Galalxy S III is now live for the whole world to see, and Samsung has made a decision for its display that might surprise you: HD Super AMOLED. This means that the massive 4.8-inch display on the Galaxy S III is not AMOLED+ like the Galaxy S II, thusly having its 720p panel working with PenTile RBGB pixel arranging. This makes it extremely similar to the Galaxy Nexus which of course also uses the same technology.
