The key upgrade to the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus is the new 6-core A11 Bionic SoC. This new chip uses two performance cores and four high-efficiency cores. During its [...]

Apple’s iPhone 8 is on track to launch in September and go on sale in October, according to a recent report by Economic Daily News.
This new statement contradicts previous beliefs that the iPhone 8 will be delayed due to poor yields of the OLED displays. Analysts predicted that the iPhone production will be severely hampered by supply after the initial launch.
Newly improved production yield rates have seemingly resolved this issue. Volume production of components will ramp up in June. iPhone manufacturing companies including Foxconn, Winston, and Pegatron are also aggressively recruiting and training new workers to prepare for the production of new [...]

For most people, buying a new monitor is typically only about the resolution and size of the display. Ever heard of somebody say they just got a 24-inch 1080p monitor? Or someone who said they got a 4K 27-inch monitor? Sure. In fact, most of us have probably done that ourselves, but while the size and resolution of a display is important, what’s equally if not more important is the display technology behind it, which will tell us more about the color accuracy, latency, viewing angles, and more.
LCD, or Liquid Crystal Displays, first became popular when CRT, or Cathode Ray Tube, monitors became mostly obsolete in last decade. Unlike CRTs which [...]
Apple is looking to integrate wireless charging into its new iPhones in 2018, says Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple analyst of KGI securities.
Just like many Android devices currently available, upcoming high end iPhone 8 models may feature an inductive pad for charging. It’s unknown whether the wireless charger will be bundled with the phones and if the port for wired charging will still exist on next generation iPhones. As the phone must rest on the charging pad in order to charge, removing the port would greatly inconvenience users as they cannot pick up and use the phone while it’s charging.
Kuo also believes that Apple is looking to release 3 models of the [...]
While the failure of a product launch as big as the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 would typically cripple a normal company, Samsung doesn’t seem to be skipping a beat, recently telling investors that they’ll be spending a record 27 Trillion Won ($23.59 Billion USD) this year with a majority of it happening in the 4th quarter.
Up until 3Q2016, Samsung had already invested 14.7 Trillion Won ($12.84 Billion USD), which is quite a bit compared to R&D and facilities spending for most tech firms however, in 4Q2016 alone Samsung is expecting to invest another 12.3 Trillion Won ($10.75 Billion USD). According to Samsung, the largest portion of the investment will go to [...]
