Apple may have put up some record numbers for revenue in its last earnings report, but the company reportedly isn’t seeing the kind of demand that it expected for the high-end iPhone X smartphone. Supposed weak demand has allegedly led Apple to slash production of the smartphone in 2018. That reduced production means that Apple suppliers, like Samsung, are now scrambling to find other customers to keep their production lines humming. Reports indicate that Samsung is currently searching for a new customer that can use its excess capacity to produce OLED screens -- capacity that was originally... Read more...
LG Display has revealed one of the coolest things seen out of CES 2018 so far. The company a new prototype OLED display that measures 65-inches and rolls into its own rectangular storage bin when not in use. It looks like the love child of a retractable home theater projector screen and a high-tech OLED TV. LG Display isn’t really offering up anything in the form of actual technical details on this screen, other than the fact that it has a 4K UHD display resolution. LG is showing off some interesting hardware bits at CES 2018, including an updated version of the Crystal Sound technology that... Read more...
LG has announced that it will have a gigantic 8K display on hand at CES 2018 and the display will be a world's first. The 88-inch 8K OLED display will be on hand at the LG booth and shows what we might have in our living room years down the road when 8K content is readily available. The native resolution of the gigantic display is 7680 x 4320 giving it 16 times more resolution than full HD (1920 x 1080). Most people are just now adopting 4K TVs that pack a resolution of 3840 x 2160.  LG Display says that this massive screen is part of its commitment to lead the high-end premium...

Have you been contemplating a big screen TV upgrade? Generally speaking, the best deals are found twice a year—just prior to the Super Bowl, and during the Black Friday festivities that in recent years have been extended well before the day after Thanksgiving. We now find ourselves in that moment where Black Friday deals are starting to appear, and there are lots of deals on TVs out there. Among them are discounts on LG's awesome organic light emitting diode (OLED) TVs, which are widely considered some of the best looking TVs on the market. One of the big advantage of an OLED panel is that light... Read more...
After months of leaks and teasing, the OnePlus 5T has finally been officially announced. If you've been following our reporting, none of the specs for the smartphone should come as a surprise, but we'll still give you a rundown of what you'll find inside. The smartphone is of course powered by Qualcomm's potent Snapdragon 835 SoC, which can be paired with either 6GB of RAM in the base configuration or a massive 8GB of RAM. Likewise, base systems get 64GB of internal storage, while upgraded models double that with 128GB. There is no microSD expansion, so choose wisely. On the display front, the... Read more...
Apple has just pushed the iPhone X out the door, and the rumor mill is already cranking it into high gear for the 2018 iPhone lineup. Famed KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is back again with his predictions/channel rumors on what Apple has in store for customers. The current iPhone X, whose form-factor includes a 5.8-inch OLED display with a density of 458 pixels per inch (PPI), is expected to carry on next year. However, the device will be joined by an even higher-end model tentatively called the iPhone X Plus. This device will reportedly have a larger 6.5-inch OLED display (480 to 500 PPI).... Read more...
Google has been battling a number of issues relating to the LG-produced OLED display used on its new Pixel 2 XL Android Oreo flagship. While Google said that the burn-in issue is normal with an OLED and phones using similar screen tech have the same potential issue, it can't say that about some of the other issues that the smartphone must live with. The latest issue for some Pixel 2 XL owners has to do with screen edges that are unresponsive. Google has admitted the issue exists and has said it will sort it out in a future OTA update. The catch is that means at least for now if your Pixel 2 XL... Read more...
A few weeks ago, Google's Pixel 2 XL was getting lots of negative attention for OLED display problems. The two most frequent complaints revolved around color representation and more critically, premature OLED burn-in on the LG-manufactured display. However, it's now Apple's time to get in line and take its lashings with regards to the ultra-expensive iPhone X. Earlier this morning, we reported of a problem where iPhone X displays are slow to respond when operating in cold temperatures. Apple says it will fix that issue with a future software update, but a new defect won't be so easy to fix. Mac... Read more...
Google has been addressing several issues that have surfaced with its Pixel 2 XL and Pixel 2 smartphones since their introduction. One of the issues with the larger XL device was that some complained that the colors on screen weren't as vibrant as they were on other devices with similar screens. Google came back and stated that it had created the phone to offer more natural colors, but admitted that some prefer the more vivid hues. A new update has been issued that adds three color profiles, a big upgrade to the single "vivid colors" profile that the smartphone originally shipped with. The new... Read more...
Google has been taking some heat over the LG-manufactured OLED display used on the Pixel 2 XL smartphone, which was shown to suffer from screen burn-in problems, sometimes only with a few hours of use. Google stepped up and stated that this was normal with an OLED screen such as the one used on the smartphone. Apple is heading off future complaints about the new iPhone X and its Super Retina OLED screen with a support document that was recently published. The warnings include an attempt to inform users that with an OLED screen there are a few potentially annoying norms you must live with.... Read more...
Google's response to its investigation into reported screen burn in issues with the Pixel 2 XL most certainly won't make owners happy. If you were expecting a fix for the issue, sadly one may not be coming. Google has published an update on the Pixel 2 XL to its product forums and has basically said the burn-in issue is normal. Google says that burn-in (differential aging in Google parlance) of the Pixel 2 XL is similar to what happens on OLED panels used in comparable products. In other words, Google is saying every OLED panel does this and that what people are seeing with burn in is normal for... Read more...
One of the potential downsides to the OLED screens that are making their way into high-end smartphones is screen burn-in. This is something that happens when you have the same items on the screen for extended periods of time, like navigation buttons. Essentially, you end up with ghost images left behind on the screen. Normally this is something that happens over an extended period of time, but there are reports of burn-in happening on Pixel 2 XL smartphones only days after purchase.  Google has announced that it is looking into these problems for owners of the smartphone. The tweet embedded... Read more...
Display technology has continued to improve over the past several years, and not just with higher-resolution panels. The next big shift is a transition from liquid crystal display (LCD) panels to organic light emitting diode (OLED) screens. As it pertains to smartphones, an increasing number of companies are making the switch. As such, OLED smartphone panel shipments could top LCD smartphone panel shipments very soon.Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC) believes this will happen within the next few years. The organization expects OLED smartphone panels to reach 1.37 billion units in 2019, and... Read more...
One could argue that the two primary features of a modern laptop, that can most prominently define the user experience, would be its display and keyboard. After all, these two aspects make up the majority of a notebook PC's human-computer interface. If that's the case, then Lenovo's latest ThinkPad X1 Yoga (Gen 2) with OLED display has a rather unfair advantage. As we've noted in the past, Lenovo has some of the best laptop keyboards in the business, at least in terms of usability and feel. And when you couple a 14-inch OLED (Organic LED) display with one of the best laptop keyboard designs on... Read more...
