Samsung displays could bounce off water in the future

Samsung displays could bounce off water in the future

Smartphones have become an integral part of our lives to the point that it’s no longer sufficient for them to be powerful only. They also need to be able to survive many of the accidents we get subjected to, day in and day out, specifically splashes and drops of water. Water resistance is an important factor among high-end smartphones these days, and Samsung is taking that up to the next level by licensing superhydrophobic glass coating for its future devices, like smartphones and tablets.

JDI “Full Active” LCD panel has nearly no bezels

JDI “Full Active” LCD panel has nearly no bezels

Although it seems that even Apple is getting into OLEDs soon, there was a time when the holy grail of mobile displays wasn't exactly about LCD versus OLED technologies. It was about banishing those wide bezels. JDI, one of the leading LCD manufacturers, hasn't lost sight of that goal yet. In fact, it has just announced a new 5.5-inch Full HD LCD display module that utilizes the company's new "Full Active" technology, practically removing bezels on all sides, even on the bottom edge.

The folks over at DisplayMate have tested one of the most important components of the phone - we'll give you one guess as to which component that is - and put it through a battery of tests, coming back to say that the display on the Note 7 is the best one of any smartphone they've ever tested.

Galaxy S8 details tip most HD display ever made

Galaxy S8 details tip most HD display ever made

Samsung's next step after the Galaxy Note 7 has been tipped to be a Galaxy S8 with a 4K display. Resolution so dense, that is, that you'll be unable to distinguish between individual pixels with your bare eyeball. Not that you were really able to with the 2K displays prominent in smartphones today, but - why not ramp it up some more? Battery life is one concern, certainly, but assuming Samsung has compensated for such madness, the next generation looks like it might be super-slick.

Why drop tests don’t shatter Motorola phones (like Moto Z Force)

Why drop tests don’t shatter Motorola phones (like Moto Z Force)

Today we've seen another drop test of the Moto Z, this time with the Z Force Droid Edition of the phone. It didn't shatter. It didn't even crack. The reason for this is the application of an extra bit of protection called ShatterShield. This is not the first time Motorola has used this tech - they also had it applied to the Motorola DROID Turbo 2, a device that survived a 900-foot drop (with only a TINY crack to show for it). ShatterShield is an extra layer of protection outside your display glass - a step above your everyday screen protector.

Dell Interactive Conference Room Monitor is a 70-inch touchscreen display

Dell has taken the wraps off a gigantic touchscreen display, the Dell Interactive Conference Room Monitor (C7017T). The display is a step up from interactive whiteboards, allowing users to draw with their finger or a stylus as well as watch presentations and do other things you’d otherwise need a projector for. The monitor isn't being targeted at the average consumer, though, instead being intended for educational institutions and businesses in need of an Interactive Flatpanel Display.

OnePlus 3 reviews send co-founder Carl Pei into a rant

OnePlus 3 reviews send co-founder Carl Pei into a rant

It's a bit interesting how usually fickle public opinion can do a 180 in a short span of time. When OnePlus released its first "flagship killer" in 2014, everyone was all over it. It used the same formula that Xiaomi used to much success in China, offering decent specs at a price to die for, plus a few unique tricks of its own. Fast-forward two years later, the latest OnePlus 3 champion is beset with criticisms and almost outright accusations, causing company co-founder Carl Pei to slightly blow a fuse and head off on a Reddit rant.

I hope this is the next iPhone (after the iPhone 7, that is)

I hope this is the next iPhone (after the iPhone 7, that is)

Today we have a peek at the next iPhone - a concept for a device that may be Apple's vision for the iPhone 7's next-of-kin. There's word that the iPhone 7 wont be a miracle of engineering and mind-blowing madness - that it won't be the major upgrade this 2-year cycle Apple always works with would have us expect. This is not the iPhone we were expecting, or hoping for. Instead, the big change in smartphone action, I hope, will be coming in 2017. This device will be the real brain-blaster.
