Last year, we saw Samsung release a slightly tuned-up version of the Galaxy S 4, complete with LTE-A support. The same thing happened this year, with the GS5 Broadband LTE-A getting released in South Korea with a Snapdragon 805, 3 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of internal storage, all slightly better than what comes with the standard Galaxy S 5. The most important difference, however, is the 2k screen that comes with the LTE-A version of the device. » Read the rest

Expect significant upgrades in smartphone screen technology this year with ‘Quantum Dot’ LCD’s

It’s no secret that most smartphone enthusiasts expect a bump in smartphone resolution and quality for this year’s flagships. With 1080p screens now the “norm” for today’s high-end devices, we eagerly look forward to what’s next. Thanks to the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 7-inch tablet last year, we have an idea of what to expect as the tablet contains the new “Quantum Dots” LCD technology. “Quantum Dots directly convert the light from Blue LEDs into highly saturated narrow band primary colors for LCDs,” which in turn produces highly saturated primary colors that are similar to those produced by OLED displays found on the Galaxy S line.

With the screens I’ve seen thus far on the LG G2, Nexus 5 and even the year old HTC One, it’s hard to imagine an even better screen as those already look more than adequate to me. How important is screen technology and quality for your smartphone? Where does it rank on your importance of your device? Let us know in the comment section! Also, check out the source link for a more detailed explanation of what to expect with Quantum Dot displays.

The upcoming Oppo Find 7 will definitely be up there in the specs department, and a recent leak shows as much. The device was already confirmed to have a 5.5-inch 2560 x 1440 (2K) display, as well as 4G LTE connectivity. An earlier leak also showed off the device’s steel frame.

Now, we’re getting to see the phone’s screen compared against the size of a 100 Yuan bill and a can of Pepsi. The size is exactly 152.76 x 75.22mm.

The front of the device should be big enough to fit a front camera, as well as a speaker and proximity sensors. New information suggesting that the phone will have 3GB RAM and either a Snapdragon 800/805 processor has appeared as well.

The screen is one of the most important parts of a phone, and that’s especially true for the larger smartphones we’ve become accustomed to. Samsung knows that, and they generally put some of the industry’s best screens in their high-end devices.

Today, they’ve released an infographic detailing the screens on Samsung mobile phones dating all the way back to their first analog phone, up to their latest Galaxy Note 3. It’s a pretty cool graph that shows when color was introduced to mobile phone screens, when Samsung first introduced a touch screen, and a few other interesting bits of information.

You can check out the infographic below. Maybe this is Samsung’s way of building up hype about the different aspects of their inevitable Galaxy S 5?

Reports from Korean web side DDaily indicate Samsung has commenced production of their new 5.25-inch AMOLED displays to be used in the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S5. The screen is expected to be a 2560×1440 2K display. Similar to the technology used for the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the Galaxy Note 3, the new display uses a diamond pixel arrangement. Each of the red and blue pixels is shaped like a diamond, with normal green pixels interleaved throughout, which is supposed to increase sharpness and pixel density. For the size and resolution, the Galaxy S5 screen will be running at 560 ppi.

The Galaxy S5 is expected to also come equipped with 3GB of RAM, a 16MP camera and will have Android KitKat 4.4 installed. Like other Samsung devices, the processor will likely vary by market with Snapdragon 800, Snapdragon 805 and 64-bit Exynos processors all believed to be candidates.

LG G Flex 2 to come in 2014, could bend fully to 90 degrees

LG G Flex_1

The first two “flexible” display devices on the market were really just to show off new technology— they have been more marketing-based than actually usable and interesting.

However, this doesn’t mean that the future of curved displays will be dull as well.

According to new rumors, LG’s G Flex 2 may have a display that can bend up to a full 90 degrees. This means that device will be nearly indestructible (from normal use), and it could be the first fully functional touch-screen clamshell device. If the display is possible, we’re sure manufacturers will be able to build a nice form factor around it to make it all come together.

The device will hit the market at some point in 2014, and you can bet LG will aim to have it hit stores before Samsung’s successor to the Galaxy Round is released.
