Samsung officially unveil flexible YOUM displays at CES 2013

Samsung officially unveil flexible YOUM displays at CES 2013

  After months of speculation and built up anxiety, the wait is finally over. Samsung in one of the Press Conferences at CES 2013 have officially launched their new upcoming line of flexible displays YOUM, which would be the basis of smartphones and tablets in the near future. The devices that were unveiled at the event (still in the prototype stage) included the new YOUM panels and plastic used in these devices which can easily bend and are virtually unbreakable.   From what we have come to assume is the fact that these devices could be used in many ways imaginable by the user like for example a tablet can easily be folded into a smartphone so that it could easily slip into your jean’s pocket or a smartphone can itself be twisted and turned in such a way to squeeze it in that tight Tuxedo jacket which in normal circumstances would actually look kind of weird with the device popping out don’t you think ? The representative conducting the event was also kind enough to show us a concept of a few future versions of a YOUM Galaxy smartphone and a YOUM Galaxy Tab.     Another beneficial way to utilize these flexible devices could be based on the fact that one side could entirely be used as a notification display while the other half can be used for the phone’s regular functionality. Well for the time being these are just assumptions as to how these devices could and would be used once the OEM’s start rolling them out in the upcoming months. Credit should be given to Samsung Electronics for once again coming up with an entirely new technology which is sure to benefit a large chunk of mobile and tablet users in the near future....

Gorilla Glass 3 to be showcased at CES 2013

  Since we first heard of the technology a couple of years back, Gorilla Glass has been one of the most used piece of equipment on a majority of mobile devices whether they are in the shape of a smartphone, a mixed breed phablet and a full fledged Tablet computer. Gorilla Glass has remained in the spotlight ever since and has been utilized by a number of OEM’s specially Samsung and HTC. Till now we have witnessed two variants in the Gorilla Glass series and now it seems that a third one’s up for grabs pretty soon. Corning, the company (and the brains) behind this hardened glass peripheral, have now come up with Gorilla Glass 3, the latest version in their successful series of durable screens. According to some early reports, the new glass is three times more scratch resistant then its predecessor and the company claims that there would be a 40 percent reduction in the overall scratches which were previously seen with the naked eye. According to an official press release, Corning plans to introduce two new products at CES 2013 next week, the new glass composition with durability enhancements, and Optical Cables by Corning, fiber-based, device-to-device connectivity solutions that significantly extend the data transmission range past the limits of copper-based...

Samsung takes LG to court over OLED patents

Samsung takes LG to court over OLED patents

Samsung and patents seem to go hand in hand don’t they ? Well apparently after the whole Apple saga, the Korean giants are now shifting their focus onto their local rivals and another Korean based electronic giants LG. Samsung are getting their legal team together  in filing a patent infringement case against LG over their OLED screen technology which according to Samsung should be deemed as invalid. The tides have seemed to turn up against LG who back in October had filed a similar patent case against Samsung for their use of technology in manufacturing the OLED displays.     Samsung are apparently seeking to have seven patents granted by a Korean intellectual property tribunal rendered invalid on the basis that they simply aren’t innovative enough to warrant such rights. Voiding such patents could effectively end LG’s ability to go after Samsung on the basis of infringement. Samsung have adopted the use of these OLED displays in most of their smartphones and since OLED’s do not have back-lighting  as in the case of traditional LCD’s, it results in slimmer and sleeker devices. Samsung are lining up their new Ativ range of Windows 8 devices which are rumored to have OLED displays in almost all the devices. Other devices include the Galaxy S3 and the Galaxy Nexus to name a few. We’ll have to wait and see as to who comes out victorious in this new found battle of the screens and if (and only if) LG do happen to win  it, then that would be troublesome news for the South Korean giants. Will keep you guys informed on any further developments    ...
