One of those records was for Absolute Color Accuracy scoring a "very impressive" 0.5 JNCD making it "Visually Indistinguishable From Perfect." DisplayMate wrote in the test... Read more...

Samsung is now ready for the micro LED display to enter production, which means that commercial availability for The... Read more...
We talked a bit yesterday about leaked details on the forthcoming LG Android smartphone flagship called the LG G7 ThinQ. As you might imagine, LG was none too happy about that leak and decided to give up all the official details on perhaps the most interesting part of the smartphone, the super bright display. LG says that display allows "stunning display quality" while reducing power consumption. That means bright and vivid images while providing better battery life for users. The screen will be a 6.1-inch QHD+ unit with 3120 x 1440 resolution rated for maximum brightness of 1000 nits.... Read more...
A new report is making the rounds that suggests Apple has accomplished a notable first and a break from its traditional method for obtaining displays. According to the report, Apple is developing its own device displays for the very first time, whereas in the past it sourced screens for its devices directly from makers like Samsung and LG. In this instance, Apple is said to be working on building MicroLED displays that will first turn up in the Apple Watch. Apple has, according to sources claiming knowledge of its plans, a small, secret manufacturing facility near its Cupertino headquarters. That... Read more...

LG has announced that it will be bringing new computer displays to CES 2018, and they are both quite impressive. The first is the LG 32UK950, which is a 32-inch UHD 4K monitor with support for HDR600 and LG's Nano IPS technology integrated. That Nano IPS technology uses nanometer-sized particles within the screen's LEDs to absorb excess light wavelengths.

The monitor is able to show 98% of the DCI-P3 color spectrum, which LG says is comparable to the monitors used when mastering... Read more...
The displays of tomorrow will not look like or function in the same manner as the displays as today. Sure, panel makers are working on increasing high resolution displays, but we're not talking about a bump to 8K or even higher. Tomorrow's displays will be flexible, bendable, foldable, and even stretchable. In regards to the latter, Samsung is planning to showcase a stretchable display at the SID 2017 event in Los Angeles this week. This will be an organic light emitting diode (OLED) display that is stretchable. Samsung said it is unique because it has the capability of bending in both directions,... Read more...

Curved screen displays are more than just a passing fad, at least that is the case if you ask Samsung. As such, the South Korean electronics giant will unveil its new CH711 Quantum Dot series of monitors with curved displays at the Consumer Electronics Shows in Las Vegas next week, the company announced. Both models that it plans to bring to the convention will be geared towards gamers. One will be a 27-inch panel and the other will loom larger at 31.5 inches.

For a long time it seemed as though display innovation was stuck in a rut, at least in the PC space. For several years a top of the line monitor was a 30-inch display with a 2560x1600 resolution. Not anymore. Display makers have been stepping up their game. That includes Panasonic, which has developed a new type of In-Plane Switching (IPS) liquid crystal panel with a contrast ratio of over 1,000,000:1 and peak brightness of 1,000 nits. You've probably seen higher contrast ratio numbers before, but those are dynamic ratings, not static or native numbers. Somewhat simplified, a contrast ratio measures... Read more...
