The CES show floor might be filled with hundreds of TVs that put your local electronics store to shame, but the real treasures of the show, the TVs packed with technology we’ll have to wait for years to buy, are hidden in back rooms away from greasy fingers. Except ours, of course, as we had a chance to treat our eyes…
The technology powering the display on your phone, or even your TV, is a lot different than it was even ten years ago. More colors, more pixels, and a whole lot more acronyms and complex terms that mean something—even if you have no idea what that something is. Display technology in 2017 is a complicated business, but…
Every year at CES, LG gives us a look at its craziest ideas for the future of display technology. At a press conference earlier today, the company showed off its refreshed OLED televisions, regarded by many as the best on the market. In a private briefing at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Gizmodo was shown LG’s…
At 2.57mm thick, LG’s new OLED W7 television might be the thinnest giant television ever made. I don’t want to say that. It feels like hyperbole, and over the next few days I have no doubt that a lot of other televisions are going to use similar tech for similar results, but look at that image above. Note how that…
Tired of teaching your older family members how to use their smartphones every time you visit? Just do what YouTube’s Mr. Volt did and build a custom cellphone out of aluminum, brass, and wood with a working rotary dial that’s reminiscent of the ancient land line phones introduced back in the 1920s.
The next iPhone will reportedly have a beautiful OLED display. Sharp executive Tai Jeng-wu essentially confirmed the next iPhone’s hardware upgrade in a recent trip to his alma mater, Tatung University in Taiwan, according to Japan’s Nikkei Asian Review.
Dependable rumors suggest that the MacBook Pro is about to get major revamp. According to a new report from Ming-Chi Kuo at KGI Securities, Apple will release a dramatic redesign of the MacBook Pro in the fourth quarter. “Dramatic” might be too small a word, actually.
2016 might be the year of VR headsets and all, but some people still enjoy looking at regular screens. And the 30-inch, pro-level 4K OLED display Dell just announced looks like one hell of an upgrade.
That silly sci-fi dream of invisible screens that magically display graphics is inching towards reality. Thanks to LG, the world can now lust after a television that looks like it’s nothing more than a pane of translucent glass—and a very thin pane of glass at that.
Apple has opened a secretive laboratory in Taiwan to develop new LCD and OLED screen technologies for its devices, according to a report by Bloomberg.
It’s an age-old question, like cats or dogs, Kirk or Picard, PlayStation or Xbox? All tough questions with equally tough answers, and the same can be said for LCD versus OLED televisions.
Today, Panasonic tentatively waded into the world of 4K OLED TVs with a new 65-inch set, following the successes of LG and Samsung with the relatively new display technology.
If there’s one thing Samsung is good at—its displays. Those OLED panes of glass that are our pocket-friendly window into the internet keep improving with every generation. Even though Samsung didn’t pack in more pixels this year, the new Note 5 and S6 Edge+ displays are the best yet.
Samsung is continually improving upon the quality of its smartphone displays, and the screens on the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 take things to new heights. In fact, according to extensive testing from DisplayMate, one of them has the best smartphone display yet.
A lot of amazing engineering and design goes into making your smartphone. And smartphone displays are one of the most important parts — they're your window onto the internet, and the world. But the technical terms we use to describe them can be pretty confusing. Here's how to sound like you know what you're talking…
4K is for losers. The real mind-blowing screens at this CES are the giant 8K prototypes that will seriously blast your eyeballs. I just saw LG's 98-inch 4K-times-four OLED screen, and yes, it was absolutely insane. I'm not sure exactly how insane though because my eyes just aren't good enough.
I have seen the future of high definition displays and lo, it is glorious. Not to mention rollable, foldable, and clearly superior to LCD/LED—really every other panel technology available today.
In addition to satellites and computers smaller than a giant room, Arthur C. Clarke also predicted mobile touchscreen devices that could be crumpled up like a handkerchief and stuffed in a pocket. Thanks to researchers at Japan's Semiconductor Energy Laboratory company, we're almost there.
