Galaxy S8 “Infinity Display” graded by DisplayMate

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.

Dell Canvas hands-on: Surface Studio gets a slick art rival

Dell Canvas hands-on: Surface Studio gets a slick art rival

Dell may be one of Microsoft's closest Windows partners, but that didn't stop it bringing along some Surface Studio competition to CES today. The Dell Canvas may not have a built-in computer like Microsoft's posable all-in-one, but pair it with a Windows notebook - and, optionally, a second display - and you have the art hub any Photoshop pro could be proud of. I stopped by to rub my grubby fingers all over it.

Dell Canvas is a 27-inch QHD ‘smart workspace’ display for artists

Dell has unveiled its new Dell Canvas, a 27-inch so-called “smart workspace” alternative to the Surface Studio, only without the PC aspect of the latter device. This display has a QHD resolution and is targeted at artists, among others, who may want to work on their creations in a manner similar to pen on paper: flat on their desk or worktable. Dell says the Canvas was developed in partnership with Microsoft.

Razer Project Valerie hands-on at CES 2017: 3-screen laptop gaming is here

Razer Project Valerie hands-on at CES 2017: 3-screen laptop gaming is here

The Razer Project Valerie laptop has three displays - and all three are really, truly dedicated to gaming. Each of these displays is connected to the base computer, creating a laptop that's thicker than the company's standard Razer Blade, but all the more versatile as a result. While this notebook isn't the sort we'll be trusting around clumsy miscreants while engaged, the hardware used to make this project a reality is well worth the gander.

Apple’s 5K display of choice starts shipping as USB-C discount extended

Apple has begun sales of LG's 5K Thunderbolt 3 display, at the same time extending its promotional discount on USB Type-C accessories for several months. The LG UltraFine 5K Display was announced alongside the new MacBook Pro with Touch Bar earlier this year as one of the few monitors to support Thunderbolt 3 natively. However, while it appeared - alongside its 4K sibling - on Apple's online store, it was not actually shipping.
