The best LG V30 deal so far may force you to make the OLED TV jump, too

Starting November 16th, LG will take up to $400 off the price of its flagship V30 or V30+ phones, if you get them together with another LG product, too. The deal will come in the form of a V30 price rebate, and is seemingly valid for most everything LG has to offer, like OLED TVs or washers, but even air purifiers and TONE audio products.

All the rebate details of the deal will be posted in the source link tomorrow, November 16th, where at the moment LG is only running its free Daydream View promo for all carrier versions of the V30 and V30+.

Apple: OLED tech is to blame for the iPhone X display looking blueish when tilted

If you got the iPhone X delivered over the last few days, or held it in your hands in an Apple Store, you might have noticed that its display is not immune to a cold color shift when tilted, both at the top-down, or the side axis, as all OLED displays do to different extents. Granted, the shift is not as pronounced as some AMOLEDs of yesteryear we’ve seen, but still the white becomes increasingly blueish with an increased angle.

Well, that’s apparently the inevitable side effect of having an OLED display, as Apple warns in its support section titled “About the Super Retina display …

iPhone X OLED display burn-in: what's the danger and how to avoid it

Screen burn-in – even if you’re not familiar with this age-old display issue, it clearly sounds like something you don’t want your smartphone to suffer by. It is a problem that has been getting a lot of attention recently due to it affecting the Google Pixel 2 XL according to multiple reports, but it has the potential to manifest itself on just about any phone with an OLED display. This includes the iPhone X. Yes, even Apple’s 1000$ marvel is not immune to screen burn-in, as its maker openly confirms. But what is screen burn-in exactly, and should iPhone X owners be worried …

KGI analyst says Apple will offer two iPhone models with an OLED screen in 2018

This year, the Apple iPhone X was the first iPhone ever to use an OLED screen instead of the usual LCD display. Now, KGI Securities well respected Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is   forecasting that two 2018 iPhone units will feature an OLED panel. One, he believes, will be the sequel to the iPhone X while the other could be a “Plus” variant of that phone. There were rumors about Apple prepping a handset with a 6-inch screen for this year, but that never appeared. As it turns out, we might see a 6-inch iPhone XI Plus next year.

Next year, Kuo sees Apple making the stainless steel band …

Leak: iPhone X to get special Dynamic wallpapers to highlight its new OLED display

The upcoming Apple iPhone X is the first-ever iPhone with an OLED (that’s organic light-emitting diode) display. The tech has been used by plenty of Android phone manufacturers before, most prominently by Samsung, who is a major player at driving the technology forward with its Super AMOLED brand. In fact, it’s Samsung that will be providing the OLED panels for Apple’s new flagship.

One of the many benefits of an AMOLED screen is its contrast ratio. Since the panel does not work with a backlight, but each pixel lights up on its own, a black color is made by just …

Awesome wallpapers that are a perfect fit for the iPhone X and its OLED display

The iPhone X is official, and it marks the most radical redesign the iPhone has seen since its original release 10 years ago. With its pixel-dense display with a resolution of 

1125 x 2436 and almost bezel-less design, the iPhone X begs for some special decorations (not to mention that this year marks the 10th anniversary of the iPhone, which in and of itself is a special occasion).
Oh yeah, and this time around, Apple has gone for an OLED panel, which means that all the cool dark wallpapers we’ve prepared will look extra-sweet on the …

LG's OLED vs Samsung's Super AMOLED: what are the technical differences?

The LG V30 is coming out pretty soon — first in South Korea, and later in the rest of the world — and from all we’ve seen so far, there’s a lot to like in it. But its biggest feature is also the one that most sets it apart from its V series predecessors: the FullVision OLED display.

And just like many other choices LG made with the V30, the shift to organics is a direct jab at Samsung, which has been putting AMOLED (or Super AMOLED, as it likes to call them) displays in its flagships for many years now. But this raises the question: on a purely …

Flexible OLED display shortages may continue for several years, analysts claim

After the word got out about Apple’s decision to move to flexible OLED displays with the upcoming iPhone 8, news of panel shortages started flying around pretty quickly, with some people going as far as claiming the company’s upcoming premium won’t make it in time for the traditional mid-September launch. But while that latter part is almost certainly false, flexible OLED shortages sure seem to be a real problem, and also one that will continue existing for the next few years, according to a new report from Chinese research firm Sigmaintell.

Japan Display to restructure itself as an OLED producer?

For Japan Display, the company is in a rather tough financial condition. Even though smartphones continue to sell, Japan Display’s LCD panel business for the connected devices cannot make up for the company’s late entry into OLED displays. And even Apple, which has stood by its LCD screens since the unveiling of the very first iPhone in 2007, is experimenting this year with one of its handsets. The tenth-anniversary Apple iPhone 8 will likely become the first iOS powered device to carry an OLED screen, leaving the Apple iPhone 7s and Apple iPhone 7s Plus to carry on this year with LCD panels.

Special "notch" required for Apple iPhone 8 OLED panels said to cause low yield rate

It seems that Apple is having an issue with the OLED panels being made for the production of the Apple iPhone 8. The tenth anniversary model is a premium version of the handset, and for the first time it will employ an OLED panel instead of using an LCD screen. A Weibo post by Foxconn Vice President Luo Zhongsheng (who is a legitimate executive of the company) reports that 40% of the OLED panels received by the contract manufacturer are failing to meet the grade at Foxconn because of the specific way that Apple wants the material cut.

The Foxconn executive noted that with this special cut …
