iPhone XS Max snatches DisplayMate crown from Galaxy Note 9

And so it begins. In the past, Samsung and Apple each had their own separate thrones in DisplayMate’s kingdom, with Samsung lording it over OLED smartphones while Apple reigned triumphant among LCD mobile screens. With Apple’s switch to OLED in the iPhone X last year, the narrative was destined to become a pendulum swinging back and forth between the frenemies. Now that has become reality with DisplayMate giving the title of best smartphone display ever to Apple just a month after it said the same for the Galaxy Note 9.

ZTE Nubia phone has a back-facing screen, but why?

ZTE Nubia phone has a back-facing screen, but why?

The ZTE Nubia Z18S has both a bonkers name and one display up front and another display around the rear. The most common reaction to the first appearance of this smartphone on social networks is simply the word: "why?" Because ZTE decided they needed to snag a headline after so much bad press over the past year?

Samsung’s folding phone may come early (this year!)

It may not be long before we finally lay eyes on Samsung's long-rumored foldable smartphone. The company has indicated that it'll reveal the phone before we close the book on 2018, which is definitely an interesting revelation for a number of reasons. While that might not (and probably doesn't) mean a 2018 launch for such a device, it does mean that we'll finally get to hear about a phone that has been the topic of a lot of discussion over the couple of few years.

Xperia XZ3 leak points to some interesting changes

As the saying goes, don’t judge a book by its cover and that may exactly apply to the Sony Xperia XZ3. At least to some extent. With less than 24 hours before it is formally announced, we’re getting one last unofficial look at Sony’s late 2018 flagship. And if this is really what the Xperia XZ3 will be like, then it might actually be more interesting than we initially thought. Sadly, it might also disappoint us in one specific aspect which, in retrospect, isn’t that surprising at all.

No LCD iPhone next year and beyond

No LCD iPhone next year and beyond

It seems that the LCD panel market might turn for the worse and it will be Apple to blame. That is, if this recent report from Korean media does come to pass. According to sources, next year's iPhone lineup will be all OLED, removing the odd duck from this year's three iPhones. If so, the smartphone market could see a strong shift towards OLED screens despite their costs, which would spell trouble for LCD makers who are unable to adopt the technology quickly.

6.5-inch OLED iPhone to be as big as iPhone 8 Plus

If you ask Apple, its first OLED iPhone, the iPhone X, did exceptionally well in the market. If you ask others, not so much. Apple's solution to fix the discrepancy?
