If there has ever been curiosity and a thirst for information about a mobile device — it’s the iPhone 6. The most recent report is from a familiar source, who placed a recently obtained screen under the microscope. the goal? To see what the screen resolution might be for a bigger iPhone.
All that talk of Sapphire may be for naught, according to one investor. Though Apple has their own Sapphire glass factory in Arizona nearing completion, it seems the actual process of making a full Sapphire display is a bit far off. According to a new report, we won’t see any Sapphire displays until 2015.
This week the folks at Sharp have let loose images and hands-on with their new "Aquos Crystal" phone. This device runs Android and will be sent up by carriers with VoLTE, but the most important feature is the most obvious: a near bezel-less front panel. When we first heard the term "edge-to-edge display", this is what we were thinking.
A new report sheds some interesting light on just what Apple may be up to this Fall. As they bet big on Sapphire glass (to the tune of $700 million!), it seems iPhone and iWatch screen production is ramping up as well. As we anticipate new smartphones and a wearable from Apple, we may be through the Sapphire looking glass on both.
Acer has taken the wraps off of its latest gaming notebooks, the Aspire V Nitro series, along with a clutch of new 4K2K and WQHD displays for those who demand extra pixels. Powered by a choice of 4th- or 5th-gen Intel Core processors paired with NVIDIA GeForce graphics up to GTX 860M, the Aspire V Nitro range will be offered in 15- and 17-inch sizes, with the range topped by the Aspire V Nitro-Black Edition.
As reactions to Google Glass show, the world isn't ready for ungainly wearable displays, but NVIDIA and researchers from the University of North Carolina think they've come up with a far more aesthetically pleasing - and discrete - alternative. Pinlight Displays promise not only to be far less clunky than suspending a tiny screen in front of the wearer, but offer a far broader field-of-view in the process, and even do it all cheaper than standard wearable displays.
While there are monitors on the market with similar specifications and a similar price, Philips’ new UltraClear Display makes a point of aiming to undercut the market. This device will roll out with 4K definition - that’s Ultra-HD, four times as sharp as 1080p, all on a 28-inch monitor. That’s 3840 x 2160 pixels across 28-inches diagonally, or 157.35 PPI (Pixels Per Inch).
Head-up displays aren't just the preserve of fighter jets any more, but if you're not in the market for a new car then Navdy's aftermarket device - billed as Google Glass for your dashboard - may be the answer. Not only a HUD, projecting virtual images that look like they're floating roughly six feet in front of the windshield, but a gesture control system, Navdy pipes messages, calls, and navigation from your smartphone to your line of sight, though that's only the start of it.
Your widescreen monitor may not look so wide once you've seen LG's latest screen.
