Samsung tri-fold phone, rollable tablet teased in official images

Samsung still needs to check off a few things from its list before its foldable phone could be truly considered complete but that isn't stopping it from cooking up other things. Of course, with a company as big as Samsung, it is often working on other things in the background, things that may never see the light of day.

M1 Macs can run up to six displays with a workaround

Apple's new generation of M1-powered Macs has definitely been the hot thing in computing these past weeks. They have been proving Apple's claims of performance, giving Intel a lot to worry about.

OnePlus Nord N100 may have a 90Hz screen after all

OnePlus made a name for itself with its "Never Settle" slogan, referring to its promise to bring top-notch features that its bigger competitors offer at a much higher price. Of late, that included the now common trend of giving smartphones screens with fast refresh rates, from 90Hz to 120Hz to even 144Hz.

OPPO Find X3 to capture, store, display images in 10-bit color

Smartphone trends come and go. At one point it was all about the screen, these days the focus is on cameras. There is, however, one thing that binds some of these trends together, one that is also sometimes inconsistent across the same phone.

These pixel-dense OLED displays could solve VR’s big headache

When it comes to virtual reality displays, the screen door effect is a very real concern for manufacturers. The screen door effect gives certain displays a mesh-like appearance that's particularly noticeable when lower resolution displays are viewed up close, so while it can happen with any display, it's most prevalent in the world of VR. Stanford researchers have announced new tech that could result in OLED displays with pixel densities as high as 10,000 pixels per inch, thereby eliminating the screen door effect even when the display is viewed up close.
