The display on your phone is relatively tiny. But in pixels, it’s friggin’ huge. That’s the beauty of high resolution. So how would that phone screen compare to your TV, or your tablet or your laptop if it was spread out to a similarly-sized screen? Doghouse Diaries made this graphic to show you, and it’s kind of nuts.
Android 4.4 Key Lime Pie Kit Kat is on the horizon, so it’s no surprise that (possible) screenshots are (allegedly) leaking out. We’ve seen a few that boast a new, flat design, but now we’re seeing hints that there’s actually no big visual change in store.
Hot diggity. LG just announced an insane 5.5-inch smartphone screen that has pixels that must be made from some sort of mixture between dense diamond sparkles and unicorn blood paint. More seriously, the 5.5-inch AH-IPS LCD display’s resolution is 2560×1440 (Quad HD) and packs 538 pixels per inch. That makes it the highest resolution and pixel density for a smartphone panel.
As companies like Apple and Samsung are heralding the end of the button, LG is taking its design in a different direction. This new “Classic TV” features a wood-panelled front complete with tuning knobs and buttons to create what LG describes as a “classic Scandinavian-style design that emphasises simplicity, modernity.”
Corning has a new version of its ultra-tough touchscreen glass called Gorilla Glass NBT, meant for touchscreen tablets and notebooks. What makes Gorilla Glass NBT so good? Many of the displays on laptops and tablets are made from soda lime glass. But Gorilla Glass NBT is made from a different material altogether.
With increasingly stiff competition and the threat of 4K on the horizon, television manufacturers are throwing every idea and accessory into this year’s flagship models. But do bells and whistles make a TV worth nearly three grand? In the case of LG’s new paramount LED, the answer is a strong… maybe.
TCL just announced a new 50-inch Ultra HD LED television for $US1000. Holy wow, that is freaking cheap. Just a few months ago, we were blown away by Seiki’s 50-inch 4K that cost $US1500. How the hell are they making all of these beautiful, high-resolution panels so cheap?
Back at CES, we were floored by Samsung’s crazy/beautiful 55-inch curved OLED television. They were an eyegasm of light-emitting diodes with a subtle but enticing cinematic bend. Secretly, we never thought we’d ever see one in real life since they just reek of CES flashiness that never turns into real-life anything. We were so wrong.
