Samsung’s folding displays fix the one big problem

Folding displays are a mainstay of science fiction, and now Samsung is readying the tech to make gadgets with screens that bend or roll.

Pixel 2 XL screen blue shift : Why didn’t Google show us this?

Today the mystery behind the "blue shift" in the Google Pixel 2 XL seems to have been solved. The color space is a much deeper subject, the likes of which could easily fill its own set of articles - but that blue? It's quite simple, as it turns out.

Third model Pixel 2 appears amid XL LG display troubles

It would seem fitting that this week another HTC-made Pixel 2 XL device would be found. This, a week in which the LG-made Google Pixel 2 XL (already out in the wild - see link below) is the subject of display-based controversy. This, a week in which the HTC-made Pixel 2 has had few to no negative reports - just the opposite - the smaller device has everything the larger one does, with a smaller display whose colors and viewing angles are all on-point.

Pixel 2 XL may get a color-improving update

Pixel 2 XL may get a color-improving update

There is very difference between the Pixel 2 and the larger Pixel 2 XL, but where they do differ, the difference is nearly staggering. Size is one and battery is another. But the most telling difference is really their screens. Although more pixel dense and prettier with its lack of bezels, the Pixel 2 XL’s P-OLED screen suffers from one odd flaw: its color quality. It seems that Google has been made aware of that substandard behavior and is mulling over pushing an update that will at least give users the option to tweak things to their taste.

As iPhone 8 notch nears, Sharp makes its odd display pitch

The iPhone 8 may have its notch, and the Essential Phone its front camera cut-out, but Sharp is exploring some seriously unusual shapes for its latest panels. The company brought its latest IGZO free-form displays along to IFA 2017 to demonstrate that, at this point, square is pretty passé. Targeting mobile devices, smart home gadgets, and car dashboards, the new screens promise tiny bezels along with their odd shapes.

Galaxy Note 8 gets better than best DisplayMate rating

If DxOMark is considered by some as the authority of smartphone camera benchmarks, when it comes to smartphone screens, DisplayMate is the name of the game.

LG V30 images released in leaks, front and back

The most definitive look at the LG V30 seen thus far comes from a series of videos posted this week to HitRecord.

The devices we see today are pretty much leaking the entirety of the phone itself - or at least its looks, both front and back.
