4K panels have pretty much taken over the big-screen television market, and 4K PC gaming was brought to the forefront thanks in part to the GeForce GTX 10 series over two years ago. But what about 8K? It will still be many years before the leap to 8K become mainstream, but that isn't stopping AU Optronics (AUO) from whetting out appetites with a gigantic 85-inch 8K television -- we're talking a 7690x4320 resolution here. Oh, and did we mention that it has a 120Hz refresh rate? We don't think that we've seen so much "win" in one place, but here we are. The television features a High Dynamic Resolution (HDR) panel that uses Quantum Dot technology and features peak brightness of 1200 nits... Read more...

We have been waiting for Samsung to formally introduce its Galaxy Tab S4 for several months now. There were rumors that it would see an unveiling at Mobile World Congress (MWC) earlier this year, but that event came and went without any mention of Samsung's next generation tablet. Now the talk has shifted to IFA 2018, and lending credence to that are what look to be official press renders.

They certainly look official to us, and we prefer these kind of leaks over the ones that consist of blurry photos in poor lighting, as if they were taken with a... Read more...
