Sharp has announced details about its state-of-the-art 7-inch MEMS-IGZO display tablet, which is heading our way in the first half of 2015. We have the breakdown of how the tech works, and what it means for future tablets.
Looking good – this LED research could improve display clarity by 400%
LED research out of Princeton uses nanotechnology to produce LEDs with dramatically improved brightness, efficiency and clarity. A smartphone display made of this tech could be 400% clearer with significantly reduced power consumption.
Do we need to improve smartphones any further or are they good enough? What would you really like to see a major improvement in? Do we need better batteries and displays, or greater durability and longevity?
What to expect from smartphone hardware in late 2014 and into 2015
Handset manufacturers have been attempting to keep stagnation at bay with water resistance devices, new build materials, and various gimmicks this generation, but late-2014 and 2015 flagships could take us back to a more traditional hardware arms race. Join us as we take a look at what to expect from hardware in late-2014 and into 2015.
Display technology explained: A-Si, LTPS, amorphous IGZO, and beyond
Display makers often throw around terms like A-Si, IGZO, or LTPS. But what do these acronyms actually mean and what's the impact of backplane technology on user experience? What about future developments?
