Samsung and LG won’t supply Huawei with displays either

Samsung and LG won’t supply Huawei with displays either

It might have been too easy to belittle the US ban on supplying Huawei with semiconductors but the full brunt of that rule is now coming to light in full. While the primary and immediate casualties are, of course, the mobile processors that will power Huawei's chips, the rule's chilling effects actually covers anything and everything that is powered or controlled by a chip, including the screens that Samsung and LG will no longer supply Huawei exactly for that reason.

Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, Galaxy Tab S7 hit by green tint bug

Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, Galaxy Tab S7 hit by green tint bug

Samsung's mobile devices have always been praised for their displays, thanks to the company's prized Super AMOLED panels. This year, however, Samsung may have lost that prestige, at least for some owners of its high-end Galaxy S20 phones that have started to exhibit random green tinting on their screens. Unfortunately, that case is far from solved and has only become even more mysterious now that even the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra and both Galaxy Tab S7 models have reportedly exhibited the same green sickness.

ZTE claims first under-screen camera phone release

ZTE claims first under-screen camera phone release

This week the folks at ZTE revealed that they'd be the first company to release a smartphone with an under-screen camera. That'll be the sort of front-facing camera on a smartphone that you cannot see with the naked eye! Or at least not without a very, very analytical eye and a thirst for looking very, very close.

Galaxy Note 20 Ultra Adaptive Frequency screen can drop to 10Hz to save power

Galaxy Note 20 Ultra Adaptive Frequency screen can drop to 10Hz to save power

Many high-end phones these days boast having 120Hz screens or even just 90Hz but there's one thing that they don't say and that users take for granted. These phones can only switch between two to three refresh rates ranging from the usual 60Hz to the fastest 120Hz. Samsung, however, believes it can do better and has developed a new Adaptive Frequency screen that can go a lot lower, helping the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G and future 5G phones more battery in the long run.

E Ink’s folding, note taking ereader looks like an e-paper Surface Duo

E Ink’s folding, note taking ereader looks like an e-paper Surface Duo

After seeing it earlier in the summer, we're checking back in with E Ink's folding, dual-screen ePaper display today. The model we saw back in June was clearly a very early prototype, with a less than stellar hinge and labels for non-existent buttons. It seems that E Ink has fixed many of those missing or unfinished features, but we probably won't see this exact device hit the market.

LG foldable and rollable screens are on display this week

LG foldable and rollable screens are on display this week

Samsung may have the lion's share of attention when it comes to its foldable screen in the Galaxy Fold and Galaxy Z Flip but it is hardly the only display company playing around with the screens of the future. Although it hasn't launched any commercial product yet, LG has long been showing off its flexible screens that even go beyond simple folding or even bending. At this year's online version of the Society for Information Display conference, LG will be showcasing no less than four such applications in its "Unlimited Design Freedom Zone" that might make you wish you could actually be there.

You keep dropping your phone, so Gorilla Glass had to get better

You keep dropping your phone, so Gorilla Glass had to get better

It's been a couple of years since we've seen a new version of Gorilla Glass, but today, Corning announced just that. Corning has revealed Gorilla Glass Victus, a new type of strengthened glass for smartphones that should (hopefully) be better at preventing scratches and damage. For what it's worth, Corning says that Victus is the strongest Gorilla Glass it's manufactured yet.

There's a new Oculus headset in the mix this week, leaked via social media with a single bright, high definition image.

iPhone 12 supply clues show major OLED change, a first for Apple

An iPhone 12 leak today says Apple decided to move to an entirely OLED display range for all four models of its next smartphone. The iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Max, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max will all have not only OLED display panels, but 5G connectivity as well. The lesser two devices are rumored to come with limited 5G connectivity - with sub-6 range - while the two "Pro" models will come packed with sub-6 and mmWave 5G connectivity, if reports prove entirely accurate.

Galaxy Note 9 display color issue persists [UPDATE: Samsung response]

There's an update that was released this year for the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 that turned the device's display... sort green. A very similar issue seemed to appear on the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra starting in at around the same time - in April of 2020. Samsung suggested that they were hard at work on the issue for the Galaxy S20 Ultra - but the issue seems to persist.

Motorola Razr 5G release date level leak drops all specs

The second-generation Motorola Razr (with foldable display) was leaked in a big way this week in a set of insider tips that essentially spill all the beans. The Motorola Razr 5G, as it's expected to be called, will come in at least one color: Mercury Silver - with a 6.2-inch display inside. This device will likely be launched with a pair of massive cameras and a dual-SIM card tray.

iPhone 12 Pro might not get that 120Hz display after all

iPhone 12 Pro might not get that 120Hz display after all

Apple is slowly blurring the lines that separate its devices and platforms. This year's iPhones, for example, may even look like miniature iPad Pros. That doesn't mean it will get the same features, of course, but there's still some discussion on what features the iPhone 12 may inherit from Apple's slates. As with the LIDAR camera, there is still no consensus on whether any of the iPhones will finally have a ProMotion display and the latest insider tip leans more on the side of "no".
