Samsung is Disrupting the Ultra-wide Monitor Market

Samsung has announced that they are to produce an ultrawide monitor, the CHG90. A monitor of mega proportions, plans revealed that the monitor will be 32:9 aspect ratio. To put this into perspective, in general, ultrawide monitors have a ratio of 21:9, while normal monitors have an aspect ratio of 16:9. The 49 inch CHG90 sets a new standard for monitor display. Coupled with 3,840×1,080 double full HD (DFHD) resolution, the new monitor offers users a unique experience. Colours will appear deeper and brighter, offering more realistic visuals. Samsung may have tapped into a market of various customers for ultrawide monitors. The world of business, finance, and tech are well accustomed to using a multi-screen platform. Utilizing several screens simultaneously, allows professionals to use a multitude of apps, or follow a number of trends at the same time. However, this often isn’t the most productive method of monitoring your workflow,…

Apple IPhone 8 Rumor Roundup: All You Need to Know

Apple’s iPhone will celebrate its tenth anniversary since it was first revealed by Steve Jobs back in 2007. The device initially emerged as a revolution in the world of cellphones, but in the last couple of years, the Cupertino company has been using a ‘better safe than sorry’ strategy. There hasn’t been much difference between iPhones 6, 6S and 7, making the fans rather cautious about the future of the lineup. As the anniversary comes closer, the expectations and rumors grow like mushrooms after rain. Numerous leaks point at a completely refreshed device, which will abandon the familiar approach to the phone. Rumors suggest a radically redesigned edge-to-edge display with minimal top and bottom bezels. Kind of what Samsung did with its Galaxy S8 model, but it’s not clear how Apple will tackle the placement of the Touch ID. The sensor is rumored to be built directly into the display,…

Why You Should Wait Before Buying Samsung’s New Galaxy S8

When a splashy new smartphone hits the market, consumers often weigh whether to place an order right away or to wait and see how others react to the device. But with the Galaxy S8, Samsung’s first major smartphone release since the spontaneously combusting Galaxy Note 7 was discontinued last year, there isn’t much of a debate. Your best bet is to wait to buy the roughly $750 device — not just for safety reasons, but also because other uncertainties surround it. Samsung declined to provide an early review unit of the Galaxy S8 to The New York Times, but several consumer electronics experts who tried the device ahead of its release this Friday were cautiously optimistic about the product. Even so, they said the phone had some radical design changes that might make people uncomfortable, a few key features were unfinished and Samsung’s recent safety record remained a concern. For…

Google and Top Android Partners Agree to Share Software Patents

Google and a group of top Android phone makers have sealed a new agreement to collectively defend themselves against patent lawsuits. The group, which also includes Samsung, LG, and HTC, have agreed to share patents covering “Android and Google Applications” on any device that meets Android’s compatibility requirements. The patents will be shared for free, and the group is supposed to be free and open for any company to join. The agreement’s proper name is the “Android Networked Cross-License,” but the group is calling it PAX for short. “Pax” means “peace” in Latin, and Google says the agreement is about reaching a legal peace within the tech world. “In the world of intellectual property, patent peace often coincides with innovation and healthy competition that benefit consumers,” writes Jamie Rosenberg, an Android business VP with Google. “It is with a hope for such benefits that we are announcing our newest patent…

Samsung’s Sweet Galaxy S8 Will Make You Forget All About the Note 7

SAMSUNG needs the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus phones unveiled today to make you forget all about the Note 7 debacle. And there’s a good chance they will, because these phones are pretty dope. In their all-black versions, they look and feel as if they were made by pouring molten onyx into a mold. These aren’t unibody devices, but they might as well be. They feel like river-polished rocks, ones with OLED screens spilling over the edges. That wraparound design element helps these big-screened phones feel smaller than their size might suggest. The S8 has a 5.8-inch display, while the S8 Plus is 6.2 inches on the diagonal. Both feel slimmer than their predecessors, thanks in part to a unique 18.5-by-9 aspect ratio on those screens. As a result, they’re two relatively huge phones that feel surprisingly normal in the hand. As beautiful as these phones are, it’s what’s inside that counts.…
