With all the fuss surrounding the Apple event today, you may have forgotten that an equally big announcement is coming next week. And we are first to deliver you a glimpse of what is to come at the Samsung Unpacked event, which will see the unveiling of the next Google flagship – Nexus Prime.
What you are seeing here is the first live photo of the Nexus Prime (or part of it), which comes to confirm several important specs of the upcoming device. First, we’ve got the HD resolution of the Super AMOLED confirmed – that’s 720p on a screen just 4.6″ in diagonal. As you [...]
Yes folks, the leaks were for real, HTC really is bringing out a pair of new handsets adorned with a dedicated, delicately illustrated Facebook key front and (almost) center. HTC is very careful not to call its Salsa — a 3.4-inch, 480 x 320 touchscreen device — and portrait QWERTY-sporting ChaCha “Facebook phones,” however Mark Z’s highly successful social network is indeed the focus around which both are built. The OS is Android 2.4 underneath, however the Sense customizations have taken on an extra few tweaks and functions to accommodate a Facebook-centric [...]
Here’s a quick comparison between the iPhone 4′s Retina Display and the Samsung Galaxy S’s super AMOLED. The first thing you will notice is the PenTile Matrix sub-pixels arrangement on the Super AMOLED which make the panel look really inferior to the IPS LCD on the iPhone 4. People will automatically jump to the conclusion that the higher pixel density on the iPhone 4 is the winner here, but this isn’t the case. The problem here is the PenTile Matrix which cause the image to look fuzzy not the lower PPI. A interesting test would be to snap a couple of pictures of the Droid X or regular [...]
4G was announced only a few days back at Apple’s annual “Special Media Event” in San Francisco. Even though the new “touch” has got two cameras: one on the back for HD video recording and one on the front for FaceTime calls, 960 x 640 Retina Display and all, but the fact that the camera on the back can only take still shots at 0.7 megapixels was met with disappointment by many.
And now, 9 to 5 Mac has discovered that the Retina Display on the new iPod touch also may not be of the same quality as the one found on iPhone 4. If you check out the technical specs of the iPhone 4 and iPod [...]
According to Analysts report the shortage and delay in iPhone 4 delivery relates to the supply issue of Retina display which is an IPS, in-plane switching technology used by Apple for iPhone 4 and iPad screens.
The LG Display Korea is the manufacturer of Retina screens for Apple and this is also reported that company can only produce about 2 million units per month against 4 million and it was planned earlier.
CNET reported that according to senior technology analyst at Rodman & Renshaw:
“Low yields on the IPS LCD panel from LG Display have dramatically impacted the production volumes [...]
How high a resolution do you need on your phone? The upcoming Qisda QCM-330 offers a whopping 1,280 x 1,024 resolution on its 4-inch screen, which is higher than many laptop screens.
The phone is being unveiled next month at the CeBIT tradeshow, and it looks like it’ll be coming to Europe on Vodafone. How such a high pixel density will look on such a small screen has yet to be seen, but just spec-wise, it’s impressive. We’re looking forward to seeing more details of this monster once it’s officially available.
