The smartphone market is a tough nut to crack. Despite its immense resources and history in the mobile sector, Microsoft tucked its tail between its legs with Windows Mobile 10 and its Lumia hardware. Even Andy Rubin, the father of Android, is finding out how hard it is to compete against the big guys with the Essential Phone. However, gaming hardware company Razer thinks that it might have just the right product to carve out a niche when it comes to smartphones. That device is the Razer Phone. Although Razer has teased the device during the past month, and specs for the device have leaked, the... Read more...
Razer, a company best known for its PC peripherals and gaming laptops, is set to launch its very first smartphone. However, given how rampant leaks are these days regarding unreleased products, we're getting an early look at what Razer will officially announce tomorrow. UK retailer 3G spilled the beans by posting a product listing for the smartphone to its website. Once the retailer realized its error, the listing was pulled. However, it was too late, and many were able to grab screenshots pertaining to the Razer Phone's specs. The phone comes with a 5.72-inch IGZO display with a 120Hz refresh... Read more...
Sharp has been hitting it out of the park with display technology recently, and that technological prowess is on full display with the company’s new 27-inch 8K (7680x4320) IPS IGZO display. We’ve seen 8K panels before, but they’re usually on the larger side of the spectrum (i.e. LG’s 98-inch UH9800 8K television). Sharp’s latest monitor, however, crams all of those pixels into much smaller package at 326 pixels per inch (giving it about the same pixel density as a 4.7-inch Apple iPhone 7). Showcased at the CEATEC technology expo in Japan, the panel supports 120Hz refresh rates at 8K, and has a... Read more...
How many pixels can you cram on a smartphone display? A whole bunch, is our technical answer. As proof of this, Sharp announced the creation of the world's first (and of course only) 5.5-inch mobile display with an Ultra HD 4K resolution. Yes, that's 3840x2160, which works out to a mighty impressive 806 pixels per inch. Citing a Greek-language blog that seemingly managed to obtain information and Japanese-language press images from Sharp, PhoneArena says the 4K smartphone display is scheduled to go into mass production in 2016. That means you should start to see flagship devices from various smartphone... Read more...
The old notion that tablets should only be a certain size or two is long gone, and to that end Sharp has one in the works that boasts a 15.6-inch 3K display from IGZO. The big slate runs Windows 8.1 Pro (with a Windows 7 Pro SP1 downgrade for those who prefer), and there are some impressive specs under the hood. The tablet (RW-16G1) has a dual-core Intel Core i5-4200U (1.6GHz) processor, 4GB of memory, Intel HD 4400 graphics, and a 128GB SSD--in other words, ultrabook specs. It comes with a stylus with pressure detection, and it for communication there’s 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.0, and NFC.... Read more...
