Apple implies it’s done making external monitors

While expectations were high for the new MacBook Pros that were announced this week, among the other possible products that was anticipated was an update to the Thunderbolt Display, Apple's now-discontinued stand-alone monitor. There was no sign of such an Apple-branded display, but instead we were shown a new 27-inch 5K UltraFine Display from LG, co-designed by Apple to work with the new 13- and 15-inch MacBook Pros.

Eyes-on with the LG 5K display perfect for the new MacBook Pro

Apple may have delivered on a new MacBook Pro but desktop power-users didn't get the Apple Thunderbolt 3 Display they were hoping for at yesterday's event. Instead, we had the fruits of an unexpected collaboration with LG, in the shape of a co-created monitor that should have sufficient pixels to keep even demanding MacBook Pro owners happy. It's called the LG UltraFine 5K Display, and it looks pretty darn impressive in person.

JOLED: a floating “dot matrix” display made of tiny balls

JOLED: a floating “dot matrix” display made of tiny balls

Display makers might be obsessed with flexible and bendable screens, but such LCDs and OLEDs aren’t the only ways to make an interesting display. What about one that floats in mid air? That’s precisely what engineers from the University of Sussex have tried to accomplish and have succeeded at. Somewhat. While the display does seem magical, if not strange, for floating, it is one that is so low res that you can identify each single pixel, which can display at most only two colors each.

Samsung slaps Tizen on standalone, premium signage displays

Samsung slaps Tizen on standalone, premium signage displays

Samsung already has Tizen running on almost all its “smart” consumer electronics, from smartwatches, to smartphones, to Smart TVs. But it could always do with more, which is why it has decided to inject the web-based OS into signage. It has just announced new members of its Samsung SMART Signage Platform, or SSSP, composed of large, premium screens that are meant to weather outdoor environments as well as operate without an external computer or “brain”, because it already has a Tizen-powered one inside.

NEC EX241UN 24-inch monitor has super-thin 0.8mm bezels

Galaxy S8 details tip a much-advanced display

Galaxy S8 details tip a much-advanced display

This week we're taking a look at the Samsung Galaxy S8, the next in a long line of top-end hero phones from the company that also makes the Galaxy Note. Unlike the pattern that Samsung has been (sometimes loosely) following over the past 5+ years, the Galaxy S8 wont necessarily take the vast majority of its cues on specifications from its larger relative. Instead, the Galaxy S8 - somewhat like the Galaxy S7 - will be the device to lead the way, while the Galaxy Note 8 will be an extension of that plan.

Google Pixel Phone detailed in release-level flying colors

Google Pixel Phone detailed in release-level flying colors

New images of the Google Pixel smartphone (one of two) have leaked, allowing a much clearer look at the simplicity of the company's next vision. Not entirely unlike one of several 3rd-party launchers with circular icons (as we saw earlier this month), this view of the smaller Pixel smartphone shows how the device will present an extremely straightforward way of using one's phone as an information source and app launcher. Google's "G" icon is also quite prevalent without requiring Google's full word brand mark to take up any more room than it needs to.

Samsung displays could bounce off water in the future

Samsung displays could bounce off water in the future

Smartphones have become an integral part of our lives to the point that it’s no longer sufficient for them to be powerful only. They also need to be able to survive many of the accidents we get subjected to, day in and day out, specifically splashes and drops of water. Water resistance is an important factor among high-end smartphones these days, and Samsung is taking that up to the next level by licensing superhydrophobic glass coating for its future devices, like smartphones and tablets.

As is usually the case with any major phone release, DisplayMate is back with another display shootout. This time it's comparing the iPhone 7 to the iPhone 6, and it has some significant praise to lap onto the iPhone 7's display, naming it the best mobile LCD it's ever tested. While the displays on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 7 may appear to be mostly the same at first blush - and indeed there are quite a few similarities - there are a number of improvements that led DisplayMate to award the iPhone 7's display with this distinction.
