Patent might be giving us a sneak peek at LG V30's design: secondary display with a twist

Note: The image on the left is our interpretation of the patent image.

Two days ago, during Google’s I/O 2017 keynote, it was announced that the Galaxy S8/S8+ and LG’s next flagship phone will eventually support Daydream later this year. 

This was news in more than one way: firstly, it single-handedly confirmed that an LG V30 is on the way, and secondly, it heavily hinted that this one will be donning an OLED display, which is one of the hardware requirements for Daydream support. 
And it seems that right after this high-level confirmation, …

Apple is trying out flexible display ideas for next-generation Apple Watch and wearables

It’s called the Apple Watch, but it’s going to be more of an Apple Bracelet if these newly unearthed patent drawings are anything to go by! They imply Team Cupertino is fooling around with “wearable, rollable, and foldable displays,” exploring the possibilities of OLED technology while searching for the next big thing.

Apple’s vision allows for unconventional approaches, including bezel-free designs and units with embedded communication modules for wireless connectivity. For now, though, the company is focused on interchangeable smart bands, such as one with a built-in …

Sony 'Xperia X Ultra' surfaces with 6.4-inch, 21:9 display

If you’re familiar with the new LG G6 and Samsung’s Galaxy S8 duo, you’ll have noticed a recurring theme with regards to their displays. The G6’s screen touts an 18:9 aspect ratio while the panels of the S8 duo are 18.5:9 — both essentially twice as tall as they are wide. The idea seems to be that users can navigate more content without the device becoming too unwieldy, and with plenty of streamed video being filmed at 2:1 these days, it makes overall sense. With LG and Samsung having laid down their cards, it’s only natural that other OEMs will begin to follow suit, and a new leak suggests that …

Sketches of OnePlus 5 display dual cameras in back and front

This morning we showed you a teaser from OnePlus that pretty much confirms that its next flagship killer will be given the moniker of OnePlus 5. Last Thursday, there was a bit of confusion when OnePlus posted the number 4 on social media which led some to conclude that the company was not giving in to superstition and would call its next model the OnePlus 4. However, a second look revealed that the image also showed two lightsabers which indicated that the post was done to celebrate Star Wars day (May the “Fourth” be with you). Today’s teaser also indicated that we will see the phone released this …
