Not many companies are actively engaged with advancing and promoting OLED technology, LG Electronics being one of the few. Taking things a step further, LG's display arm just created a new division tasked with developing OLED panels and proactively promoting the technology more aggressively than it has in the past."We've created the new division to create synergy by gathering all the hitherto scattered OLED-related departments into one," LG said in a statement, according to CNET.LG CTO Yeo Sang-Deog will be in charge of the new division, which will oversee all OLED related projects. One of his... Read more...
It’s hard to say that a nearly $1,000 display is affordable, but Acer’s newly-launched 32-inch B326HK is one of the less-expensive monitors in the 4K market. With a resolution of 3840x2160 (four times the available pixels of a 1920x1080 display) and IPS technology for wide-angle viewing, the display is bound to get the attention of everyone from artists to gamers.The B326HK isn’t a flashy display, but it’s designed to be easy to adjust, whether you want to raise, lower, or tilt it. The monitor also comes with a full complement of ports, including HDMI with MHL (for mobile devices), DisplayPort,... Read more...
One of the rumored features that didn't make it onto the iPhone 6 is the sapphire display. Touted for its durability and scratch-resistance, sapphire glass is used on the camera lens and Touch ID sensor, but not the main display where it's arguably needed most. It's not there in part because things turned sour between Apple and sapphire display maker GT Advanced, the latter of which accuses the former of a bait-and-switch tactic that ultimately led to a bankruptcy filing. This boils down to a he-said-she-said tiff, and in an affidavit filed with the United States Bankruptcy Court in New Hampshire... Read more...
Just when you thought the ship had sailed for glasses-free 3D displays on smartphone devices, a rumor has surfaced that Apple is toying with the idea of implementing one on its next iPhone handset. As the rumor goes, the "naked eye 3D screen," as it's referred to in a Chinese-language report, would be part of a bigger 3D hardware and software ecosystem. Hogwash, right? Perhaps, though it's worth noting Apple has a documented interest in 3D technology. Over six years ago, the Cupertino outfit applied for a patent related glasses-free 3D stereoscopic displays, which included tracking technology so... Read more...
Dell has made a handful of interesting announcements at its Dell World 2014 conference, currently taking place in Austin, Texas. Yesterday, we were able to show you some of the new Venue mainstream and professional tablets and convertible devices the company has coming down the pipeline, and today we’ve got some impression of a couple of other products—Dell’s highly anticipated 5K display and a concept “Smart Desk” product that could change the way creative professionals interact with their PC. First up, here’s a look at Dell’s upcoming UltraSharp 27 5K... Read more...
Content creators are quickly running out of excuses for not taking advantage of 4K Ultra HD resolutions. That's because the transition from Full HD 1080p to 4K Ultra HD is taking place faster than anyone expected, and it's due to hardware makers taking the initiative rather than waiting on content creators to force their hands. Not only are we seeing more and more 4K TVs, we're starting to see affordable models, like Vizio's new P Series starting at $999. Sure, dropping a grand on a television isn't chump change, but comparatively speaking, that's not bad for a big screen TV, especially one that... Read more...
Many companies haven't even introduced 4K displays with their own logo on them yet, and we're already looking ahead to what's next. That's typical for the tech space, but 5K displays seem closer than most would have guessed. The Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) has just announced the DisplayPort 1.3 audio/video standard, which is a meaningful update to the DisplayPort 1.2a standard. The new protocol increases the maximum link bandwidth to 32.4 Gbps, with each of four lanes running at a link rate of 8.1 Gbps/lane—a 50% increase from the previous version of the DisplayPort standard....

Look, that 4K monitor you just spent a king's ransom on isn't obsolete, but it's no longer cutting edge. How can that be? You can thank Dell for deciding that 8,294,400 pixels (3840x2160) just isn't enough, so it's going to release a 5K panel with a 5120x2880 resolution. That works out to 14,745,600 pixels, nearly twice as many as today's 4K monitors. The UltraSharp 27 Ultra HD 5K Monitor is the world's first display with an Ultra HD 5K resolution. It's equivalent to four times the resolution of QHD and seven times the resolution of Full HD. Now imagine packing all those pixels on a 27-inch panel... Read more...
LG Display announced that it has begun mass producing what it claims is the world's first circular Plastic OLED (P-OLED) display, an innovation that will first be seen on the company's G Watch R smartwatch, which will be shown off at IFA 2014 in Berlin. Going forward, circular P-OLED could be a game changer in the field of wearables. People who still wear watches are, for the most part, used to circular faces. However, a number of smartwatch designs have introduced rectangular form factors. Thanks to LG's innovation, the G Watch R will sport a "perfectly round" face that measures 1.3 inches in...

We've seen display makers focus on lower cost 4K Ultra HD monitors in recent months, and while we applaud the effort, what about the graphics professional who is willing to spend more on a panel with better color accuracy? It looks like Samsung is ready to answer the call. In addition to a handful of mobile devices unveiled today, Samsung announced the availability of its new UD970, a 32-inch class 4K monitor for the professional crowd. By that we mean it's intended for users who require not only a high resolution, but also accurate color reproduction for video and photo editing, graphic design,... Read more...
It's not easy to make a splash in tech news when you're going up against a major processor microarchitecture release like Haswell-E, though Dell managed to do just that by unveiling its uniquely redesigned Alienware Area 51 desktop yesterday. Interestingly, that wasn't the only thing Dell had up its sleeve. Mentioned almost as a side note in the press release is the unveiling of what Dell claims is the industry's first 34-inch curved monitor. Dell's new UltraSharp 34-inch (U3415W) display boasts an ultra-wide 21:9 with a curved panel and WQHD 3440x1440 resolution. That's plenty of real-estate for... Read more...
It's too late to lay claim to the first 4K television, however LG Electronics just announced the world's first OLED TV with a 4K Ultra HD resolution (3840x2160). That OLED qualifier makes all the difference in the world, and according to LG, the use of OLED in today's Ultra HD displays will prove a "game changer" in the industry. There are two models available, both of which sport curved displays. They include the 77-inch 77EG9700 and 65-inch 65EC9700. Both feature LG's proprietary "Four-Color Pixel WRGB" technology. Armed with 33 million sub-pixels, LG says its OLED displays produce richer, brighter,... Read more...
Apple and its investors fully expect the upcoming iPhone 6 launch will be the biggest in the iPhone's history, and while there's a good chance of that happening, nothing is ever easy about these launches. Each iPhone release has been marred by one problem or another, and this time around, it's problems at the assembly plant that Apple has to deal with. Specifically, a last minute redesign of a key component has led to a disruption in the iPhone 6's panel production. It's rumored that Apple will unveil the iPhone 6 at a press event on September 9, though according to Reuters, it's not yet known... Read more...
Planning on purchasing an iPhone 6? After you do, you can rest a little easier at night knowing that Apple issued a ban for a pair of chemicals that could potentially cause serious health issues for factory workers when breathing in the fumes. The chemicals are benzene (can cause leukemia) and n-hexane (linked to nerve damage), which had previously been used to make shiny iPhone displays. Apple launched a four month investigation into the use of the above mentioned chemicals after activist groups China Labor Watch and Green America co-promoted a petition urging the Cuperitno company to stop using...
