Galaxy Note 8 specs tipped to match OLED iPhone 8

Galaxy Note 8 specs tipped to match OLED iPhone 8

Estimates for shipping numbers for the Galaxy S8 have risen in KGI's books as analyst Ming-Chi Kuo taps into Galaxy Note 8 predictions. This week the analyst suggested that preliminary shipments of the Galaxy S8 have surprised him, coming in far stronger than previously expected. The Galaxy Note 8, said Kuo, will have features that not only differ from those of the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus significantly, they'll likely match those of the iPhone 8 (and/or OLED iPhone) in several key areas.

Some Galaxy S8 users complain of reddish screens

Some Galaxy S8 users complain of reddish screens

No smartphone is perfect, of course, but manufacturers are expected to at least avoid glaring bugs and issues, especially at launch. Considering how much Samsung is banking on the Galaxy S8's success, you'd expect it to be very careful not to mess things up so soon. As some early Korean users have discovered to their dismay, however, that just isn't the case. Some are reporting that their screens are exhibiting a very reddish tint that won't go away, no matter the settings.

iPhone 8’s humongous release tipped to force Samsung Display hand

iPhone 8’s humongous release tipped to force Samsung Display hand

OLED displays are coming in hot for Apple's next smartphone and in no place is it more apparent than Samsung Display's factories. At least right here before manufacturing begins in earnest, a report from South Korea-based ET News says that Samsung Display's latest move is to convert an ASA LCD factory to OLED for one reason only. That is making room for the capacity needed to create the iPhone 8 - or iPhone Pro, or whatever you'd like to call it. Just don't call it a comeback - or an iPhone 7s, which will come with an LCD panel, more than likely.

Galaxy S8 “Infinity Display” graded by DisplayMate

Another year, another Samsung Galaxy flagship. Which means another chance for DisplayMate to review the Galaxy S8's screen and rank it among others in the market. Given that DisplayMate has consistently crowned Samsung's premium smartphones as the best in OLED class every year, it's hardly surprising to hear it do so again this time. It is, however, interesting to hear just what made DisplayMate think so.

AOC AGON gaming monitors flaunt curves, odd-looking controller

AOC AGON gaming monitors flaunt curves, odd-looking controller

Even while TV makers are still trying, sometimes hard, to sell the idea of curved screens in living rooms, they are already trying to make a grab for your desk. And just as curved TVs promise the ultimate immersive viewing experience, curved PC monitors make the same the same spiel for gaming. AOC’s two new gaming monitors, however, promise to be even more. Blending style and substance, these monitors give the illusion of floating on air thanks to having almost no bezels. But they also bring a dedicated keypad controller that looks both futuristic and weird.

Apple patents bezel-less iPhone tech to put Touch ID in display

Apple patents bezel-less iPhone tech to put Touch ID in display

There's no shortage of rumors about the next iPhone, but one of the more compelling rumors we've heard involves the iPhone 8 - if that's what it'll be called - sporting an edge-to-edge display. In order to accomplish this, Apple would need to remove a number of components from the face of the device - namely, the fingerprint scanner and the light sensor. Those are two fairly crucial components to the operation of the iPhone, but if a freshly awarded Apple patent ever sees the light of day, they may no longer be necessary.

LG’s UltraFine 5K displays for Mac are getting a fix for router glitch

Last year, LG teamed with Apple and introduced its new UltraFine 5K monitor, which was meant to replace the outgoing Thunderbolt displays. It was encouraging to see LG stepping in to fill a gap, but then a few days back a strange problem reared its ugly head: the monitors stopped functioning correctly when they were placed too close to a router.

JDI FULL ACTIVE FLEX Full HD screen show LCDs can bend too

There seems to be a concerted effort among device manufacturers to switch to OLED display technologies, from TV to smartphones. Even Apple, ever the champion of LCDs on mobile, is believed to be making the switch this year, if not next. But while LCDs and OLEDs usually balance out their pros and cons, there is one area where OLEDs trump LCDs: flexibility. Well, not anymore. Japan Display, Inc., more popularly known as JDI, is showing off its new FULL ACTIVE FLEX panel, boasting of 1920x1080 pixels of flexible LCD.

LG G6 will have an odd 18:9 5.7-inch screen

LG G6 will have an odd 18:9 5.7-inch screen

Gone are the days when screen aspect ratios were simple. Though there’s really no one ratio to rule them all, you could expect screens to fall under either 16:10, 16:9, or the square-ish 4:3. Nowadays, you have resolutions like 3:2 or the ridiculously wide 21:9, which can be found on some new monitors. LG, who makes some of those monitors, is once again pushing the envelope with a new 18:9 screen for smartphones from LG Display. And in case you missed it, that might very well be the LG G6’s screen.
