Samsung Gear Fit 2 Pro revealed, should be announced alongside the Galaxy Note 8

Last year’s Samsung Gear Fit 2 is about to get a successor called Gear Fit 2 Pro. Samsung already confirmed the name of the new wearable device, and now we can actually see images of it – thanks to Venture Beat, which also revealed some of its features.

The new fitness band comes with “5 ATM” water resistance, which means it’s capable of withstanding water pressures equivalent to depths of …

A new Gear Fit band was rumored to make its debut at the Tizen Developer event back in the spring, but Samsung had other plans for the fitness tracker. It appears that the unannounced Gear Fit 2 Pro will be introduced very soon since it’s been listed …

Chinese company has made a 360-degree camera that is small enough to fit in an iPhone 7 Plus

We are used to looking at 360-degree cameras as standalone balls, which you can’t imagine being housed within a smartphone, as an integrated unit. However, a Chinese company, named ProTruly, has already produced two overly large and odd-looking smartphones that sport built-in 360-degree cameras, and released them in China last December. The camera units in the devices were supplied by HT Optical – a company that has traded with brands, such as Olympus and Sony, and supplied components for Xiaomi’s Mi Sphere Camera.

Apparently, Endgadget had a chance to have a quick word …

How to scale the LG G6 display for apps and games that don't fit in 18:9

LG got none other but the inventor of the 2:1 format on stage during the G6 unveiling to explain why it comes with a screen in the unorthodox 18:9 aspect ratio. When LG announced this brand new 5.7″ display panel with 1440 x 2880 pixels resolution, we thought “Oh, that’s just LG being LG, they are always doing something with modular phones or extra ticker screens like on the V-series, so that might be it.”

It turned out that LG had a deeper meaning when it crafted a 2:1 Dolby Vision-certified display for the G6. This standard is called Univisium, and is not widespread …
