Samsung Flexible OLED display coming to iPhone 11

This week industry sources suggested that Samsung Display reached an agreement with Apple to supply iPhones with flexible touch OLED. These same sources said that it's likely the next iPhone will work with flexible touch OLED displays. It's likely Apple will only use this flexible OLED display on one singular iPhone, while the rest will continue to use slightly more traditional means of touchscreen tech with displays as separate components.

Samsung can’t resist the notch – in fact it now has several

Samsung may have been one of the display notch hold-outs so far, but that won't last, with new Infinity Display panels promising to further annoy those who can't stand screen cut-outs. The fresh additions to the company's AMOLED line-up were previewed at SDC 2018, Samsung's annual developer event, today, expanding the existing Infinity Display brand with several new options.

Samsung foldable phone gets an official preview date

Samsung will preview just how its foldable smartphone will work next week, the company has confirmed, as it counts on new form-factors to lift plateauing mobile sales.

Vertu returns from bankruptcy with $14k phone

Vertu returns from bankruptcy with $14k phone

Vertu has a new Android smartphone, and they've priced it at around $4,000. It would seem that their brush with bankruptcy has not changed their tendency to think top-tier, exclusive, high-end, and so forth. The Vertu Aster P costs a lot of money because the Vertu brand positions itself as a high-end luxury hardware creator - certainly not because it can do anything technical a $300 phone can't match.

2018 iPhone Apple Pencil support tipped as upgrade argument gets clearer

2018 iPhone Apple Pencil support tipped as upgrade argument gets clearer

For quite some time now, rumors have been claiming that Apple will launch three iPhones later this year. That isn't the most wild claim to make considering that Apple did the same thing in 2017, but in any case, the general consensus seems to be that we're getting a repeat of the three-phone line up in 2018. Today, analytics firm TrendForce delivered its predictions for 2018's iPhone line, and once again, we're seeing the claim that there will indeed be three phones for consumers to pick from.

Galaxy X foldable smartphone sees Samsung fight its natural inclinations

Galaxy X foldable smartphone sees Samsung fight its natural inclinations

Samsung has a folding phone challenge. On the one hand, the smartphone-maker can't afford to rush its flexible smartphone - colloquially, though unofficially, known as the "Galaxy X" - to market and risk it being underwhelming. At the same time, however, the company's addiction to being first out of the gate with new technologies leaves it paranoid that rivals might beat it to the finish line.

Galaxy S9 DisplayMate verdict: unsurprisingly A+

Galaxy S9 DisplayMate verdict: unsurprisingly A+

The Galaxy S9 looks almost identical to its Galaxy S8 predecessor, especially in its design and its front, that you might presume it reusing some things. That might seem especially true with the screen, which doesn’t seem to have changed that much except for the thinner bezels. But, as they say, looks can be deceiving and the experts at DisplayMate explain how those changes have improved the Galaxy S9’s display significantly that it is now its highest-rated OLED phone display. Which, of course, isn’t surprising to anyone who’s been following DisplayMate’s benchmarks.

Samsung ad flaunts screen superiority in Pixel 2 XL’s face

Samsung ad flaunts screen superiority in Pixel 2 XL’s face

A big part of advertisements is what you say and how you say it. Just as important, however, is when you say it. They say timing is everything, and that definitely applies when trying to catch the window of opportunity or when hitting their frenemies when they’re down. Google just experienced a pretty big setback over the display of the Pixel 2 XL, a P-OLED panel made by LG. Unsurprisingly, Samsung has just come out with a series of video cuts that boast about how great its screens are, making the unsaid implication that they’re definitely better than the Pixel 2 XL’s.

Google Pixel could soon have an Always On Display mode

Google Pixel could soon have an Always On Display mode

Energy savings isn't the only benefit to come from OLED, specifically AMOLED, displays. Or rather, there are other benefits to the technology that allows AMOLED screens to be more efficient with the batery. One of those is the ability to have the entire display still enabled but displaying very little or almost nothing. This is the so-called Always On Display and it might soon be coming to a Google Pixel phone near you.

Galaxy S8 gets red tint fix, Samsung insists it’s not a bug

Galaxy S8 gets red tint fix, Samsung insists it’s not a bug

It's no explosive Galaxy Note 7, but one particular complaint with the Galaxy S8 is having users buzzing a bit. Not because it's a terribly deal-breaking "misfeature" but because of how Samsung is handling the problem. Or rather, how it is denying there is a problem in the first place. Nonetheless, yielding to outcry, Samsung has apparently started to roll out a software "fix" for the red tint issue on the Galaxy S8, which simply gives users more control over the colors on the screen.
