You'd be forgiven for thinking that if you wanted a curved Samsung display you'd need to cough up thousands for one of its huge TVs, but a 27-inch display could bring some flexed screen tech to your desktop. The Samsung S27D590C isn't going to impress guests to quite the same extent as a 60-inch curved Ultra HD OLED might, but the claim is more immersive gaming and entertainment on a more domestic scale.
As monitors continue to get more pixel-dense, one well-heeled standard is being scaled equally to remain pertinent. The Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) is announcing the DisplayPort 1.3 audio/visual standard, which brings in more bandwidth to help you push pixels along without lag or degradation.
Many displays on mobile devices are LCD, a technology that’s a bit long in the tooth. Sharp, in conjunction with Qualcomm, is working to create a new type of display, one they hope will forge a new path for small displays. Called MEMS-IGZO, the new display tech leans on the hard work of both companies equally.
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.
