30+ Infinity Display wallpapers perfect for the upcoming Galaxy S9 and S9+

Mere days before Samsung makes the Galaxy S9 and S9+ official, we thought we’d bring you a collection of beautiful backgrounds that have been custom-tailored to perfectly fit the pixel-dense Infinity Displays of Samsung’s upcoming flagships.

The Galaxy S9 and S9+ will boast QHD+ Super AMOLED displays with a resolution of 1440 x 2960 pixels, which will be capable of delivering sharp imagery at a pixel density of around 568 ppi. The S9s’ screens will have the same tall aspect ratio as last year’s models, that is 18.5:9, which provides ample room for customization. And what better way to show …


All aboard the notch train! Apple mandates that all new apps support the iPhone X display

If anyone needed further proof that Apple is all aboard the notch train, its latest memo to developers should suffice. As if to corroborate the supply chain findings of its most reputable analyst, Apple is now demanding that all new apps submitted from April onwards, should natively support the screen cutout of the iPhone X, and it says so explicitly in an email distributed to developers.
In other words, the notch is here to stay, and this jibes with KGI Securities’ Ming-Chi Kuo numeorus memos to clients that Apple will issue three iPhones …

Et tu, Moto? Motorola patents bezel-less flexible OLED display gear

Motorola and Sony seem to be the last holdouts of the all-screen phone trend, as they keep churning out phones with juicy top and bottom bezels, but that may very soon change, judging from a recent Motorola patent.

Posted on February 8 by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), the patent in question shows a variety of nearly bezel-free and even foldable form factors, which can only be achieved by using flexible OLED screens with plastic substrates, like on Samsung’s Galaxy S or Note line of phones. 

There are also quite a few variations covered in the …

Xperia XZ2 Pro spotted in HTML benchmark, long display reaffirmed

For a while now, we’ve been hearing whispers that Sony might just be jumping on the 18:9 bandwagon, joining the ranks of extra-wide, thin-bezeled phones with its next flagships. Well, now, we have a reiteration of that rumor through an alleged benchmark listing, which seems to spill some details about an Xperia XZ2 Pro.

First and foremost, the screengrab shows us that the new phone is running Android 8.1 Oreo. Then, we get a section saying “Screen size: 424 x 848 px”. Now, we doubt this is the actual screen resolution the phone would ship with — who knows what happened there — but …

The Moto Z2 Force ShatterShield display won't crack, but it will peel (UPDATE)

The ShatterShield screen employed on the Moto Z2 Force uses a 5-layer system that keeps the AMOLED screen from cracking or breaking. When the device first launched, several owners were complaining about scratches on the outer layer of the display. Now, a new problem has popped up. Several owners of the Moto Z2 Force are complaining that the top protective layer on the ShatterShield system has started to peel off the phone.

Those complaining about the peeling say that it is taking place around the fingerprint button, and on the corners of the screen. One theory is that the heat generated …

Whew, finally a budget handset with the trendy 2:1 aspect ratio screen that is smaller than 6 inches! We kid, but there is a whole lot of unfulfilled demand for phones with elongated bodies and thin top and bottom bezel, aka the Full View/Vision and Infinity displays of this world that aren’t of the 5.99″ and up variety. 
Enter the Honor 9 Lite that is escaping its Asian confines today to arrive in Germany, Italy, France, Spain and United Kingdom at a very affordable EUR 229 price. The handset sports a 5.65″ Full View FHD+ screen, meaning it has slimmed-down …

Asus confirmed its ZenFone 5 series will be officially introduced on February 27, but it didn’t reveal anything related to the upcoming smartphones. If you don’t mind spoilers, we now have information about one of the ZenFone 5 handsets expected to be unveiled later this month.

Asus hasn’t dropped the 3.5mm audio jack, which is positioned on top of the smartphone. The microUSB …

All about Full Active, Apple's alleged display choice for an 'affordable' iPhone 9

It was back in September, even before the iPhone X had hit the shelves, that we first heard about a potential 6″+ iPhone with LCD display, coming our way this year. Previously, even famed Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, had tipped that Apple will pull its OLED iPhone schedule forward a year, and all 2018 models would be equipped with such panels, out of Face ID, notch, and “all-screen” design considerations.

Apple, however, reportedly scrapped plans for a smaller, 5.28″ iPhone for this year, and replaced it with a 6.1″ LCD model, as it rightfully concluded …

ZTE Blade V9 with Android Oreo and 18:9 display may soon be launched in the US

The Blade V9 is the next Android smartphone ZTE is likely to introduce in the United States. It won’t be the first Blade series handset to go on sale in the US, and most likely not the last, but the phone will certainly mark a premiere. The Blade V9 could be ZTE’s first smartphone powered by Android Oreo to make its debut in the US.

The device was recently spotted at FCC (Federal Communication Commission), which indicates ZTE might ready the Blade V9 for a US release. As far as specs go, this looks like a decent mid-range device.

The phone sports a 5.7-inch Full HD+ display with 18:9 …
