MWC 2019: Lenovo’s External USB-C Display Could Be on Every Laptop User’s Wishlist

Portable monitors for laptops aren’t an entirely new class of gadget, but prior to the widespread adoption of USB-C, they were always kind of a pain in the ass. That’s because you needed one cord for data, and another cord for power, with older models often ending up too big and bulky for most people to want to carry around. Read More >>

CES 2019: HP’s 65-inch HDR Gaming Monitor With G-Sync Looks Spectacular

A year ago, Nvidia announced plans for a series of gigantic monitors with G-sync built in, running on Android, and sporting a unique blend of features found on no other TV or computer monitor. The monitors, collectively called BFGDs (as in Big Fucking Gaming Displays), had a major issue in those early demos. They were...ugly. The displays seemed low quality, with poor dynamic range and a terrible blooming issue that might be acceptable in a $500 TV, but not a $5,000 one. But a year later, the first of those BFGD, the HP Omen Omen X Emperium 65, is finally moving out of the conceptual demo space and into purchasable reality. Read More >>

I Bought This Custom 18-Million Pixel Workstation on Craigslist, and It Very Nearly Ruined Me

I have determined the precise upper boundary of how many monitors it is okay to have hooked up to the same computer. I do not know, exactly, how many monitors is the ideal number. But I do know it is no more than eight. Read More >>

The First 8K Video From Space Is Cool, but Good Luck Watching It in 8K on Earth

NASA just released the first ever 8K video shot in space. With help from the European Space Agency (ESA), astronauts collected a bunch of clips inside the space station — and a few looking out — using the Helium 8K camera by RED. You can download the original file on NASA’s website. (It’s over 3 gigabytes LOL.) However, you probably cannot find an 8K display on which to enjoy it. Read More >>

The Fancy Display Tech Samsung Apparently Wants for Its Future Phones Sounds Amazing

Samsung is one of the clear leaders in mobile display tech, and its screens are found in a wide range of flagship devices including its own Galaxy phones and those of its biggest competitors like Apple. However, one of the biggest complaints about the Galaxy S9 is that looks virtually identical to last year’s device, a sentiment that arose largely due to the fact that Samsung didn’t do much to change up the S9's screen.

Nintendo Could Be Fixing the Switch’s Biggest Flaw

If you’ve picked up a Switch you’ve no doubt been impressed by the games and the overall design, but decidedly underwhelmed by the display – which is uglier than the ones found on cheaper products like the £80 Amazon Fire. Wall Street Journal is now reporting that Nintendo is considering another model of the Switch – this time with a display that actually shows off all those pretty games. Read More >>

Samsung Announces New ‘Unbreakable’ Phone Displays

If you look around at people while they use their phones, you'll see that a significant number of people have broken displays. Sometimes it's just a smashed touchscreen, but I've seen people continuing to use phone long after the liquid crystal layers has smashed and started leaking. While improved glass strength has done wonders for making sure this doesn't happen, Samsung's taking things further by announcing new 'unbreakable' screens. Read More >>

Hisense’s Absurd 100-Inch Laser TV Turned Me Into a Big Screen Believer

Turns Out, Your Fancy Monitor Might Have a 4K Display Inside

Unsatisfied with the sharpness in your new QHD monitor? Thanks to the power of economics, that display of yours might actually have a downscaled 4K panel, one that isn’t doing your image quality or refresh rate any favours. The worst part? You can’t even upscale them. Read More >>

Samsung Advances the War on Bezels, Turns a Phone-Size Display Into a Speaker

There are lots of phones trying to maximise the amount of screen space they can fit into a regular-sized phone at the moment, despite the fact there are a bunch of important bits of hardware in the way. Hardware like the front camera, a speaker, and various different sensors. Some companies just deal with the fact they can't strip it all away and leave a bar at the top of the phone, like the Samsung Galaxy S9, while other opt for a notched display.

Apple Exploring Making its Own Displays for Watches and iPhones: Report

One of the major keys to Apple’s success over the years has been the tight control it exerts over the components in its devices. Many things such as the iPhone’s A-series processors and metal and glass chassis are designed in house, in order to meet the company’s demanding specifications, before being sent to big manufactures like Foxconn or TSMC. However, when it comes to displays, Apple has relied on what are essentially off-the-shelf components from third-parties like LG (which makes the screen currently used in the Apple Watch) and Samsung (who makes the screen used in the iPhone X). Based on a report from Bloomberg, that could change. Read More >>
