We already know the Note 9 will be announced on 9 August in New York (we’ve collected all the rumours on that over here).

LG’s Q8 handset is all about screen and sound. Okay, and the camera

LG is doing what it always does and is making more affordable versions of their flagship smartphone for the year. The newest is the Q8, a phone that strips down a few specs while still offering users an excellent screen, sound playback, and, everyone’s favourite toy, a great camera.

LG’s G6 MWC invitation drops unsubtle hints about the handset’s display

LG is trying to be secretive while teasing some of the features of the upcoming G6 flagship.

Apple’s new 5K display could have its own GPU to support MacBooks

Apple has offered an iMac with a staggering 5K-resolution display since 2014 and also has 4K iMacs available, yet its standalone Thunderbolt Display still sits at 1440p – plenty sharp, but certainly lesser by comparison. However, a refresh seems imminent: retailers are starting to show limited stock of the five-year-old monitor, and 9to5Mac‘s sources claim that a much-improved standalo...[Read More]

Why are flexible computer screens taking so long to develop?

It’s common to first see exciting new technologies in science fiction, but less so in stories about wizards and dragons. Yet one of the most interesting bits of kit on display at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas was reminiscent of the magical Daily Prophet newspaper in the Harry Potter series. Thin, flexible screens such as the one showcased by LG could allow the creation o...[Read More]

HP’s new Spectre hybrids have seriously kick-ass screens

HP has kitted out its Spectre x360 hybrid laptop line-up with the cutting-edge in display tech. Well, until 8K arrives at least. There’s an entirely new 15in model which can be specced-up with a 4K screen, while the existing 13.3in convertible now has an optional OLED display. We’re not sure which model we’re most excited about, frankly. OLED screens have the deepest blacks in th...[Read More]

To achieve this LG will be investing some $90 million in the process, which will be used to create a...[Read More]
