Sony Corp, Panasonic Corp and Japan Display Inc has announced a joint venture to develop organic light-emitting diode (OLED) displays, with the government-backed Innovation Network Corp of Japan (INCJ) taking a majority stake.
Rumors have surfaced that Samsung will debut the Galaxy Note 3 at IFA with a brand new unbreakable OLED display. The screen is expected to utilize a plastic substrate with active LTPS matrix instead of the glass substrate used on the current Galaxy Note 2. The screen will have an RGB matrix.
Samsung has just signed a joint venture with Corning to to manufacture a new range of speciality glass substrates for its OLED equipped devices.
The 2nd part of our Nokia N85 vs N82 comparison tackles the N85’s biggest addition: the OLED display. OLED which stands for Organic Light Emitting Diode bring a new technology to the N85’s screen removing the small light bulbs from underneath it, and thus allowing for more accurate color renditions, darker blacks and a better contrast. Here is a comparison of the same image being displayed on the N82 (regular LCD screen) and the N85 (OLED screen).
N97 aside, the N85 is one of the most recent Nseries devices offering a range of features and combining the best of Nokia into one handset. Many people are calling it the N95 successor, or the better N95 as it takes the flagship’s dual slide design but adds a lot more to it in terms of battery, RAM, internal memory and hardware features. Here is an image review of the N85, but we also have a video review that we will publish later.
The N85 is a slider device. The main unit packs a 2.6″ screen with an accelerometer that rotates the display to landscape when needed. On top of it is the speakerphone with the front camera and the light sensor. Below it are the d-pad which also functions as a Navi-Wheel, the multimedia key and the red and green call keys. Another set of keys, that only light up when the device is being used are the right and left softkeys and the menu button and delete key. Continue reading “Nokia N85: Image Review”
At the Symbian Smartphone Show in London, Samsung announced a new beast after its stellar Innov8. The Samsung I7110 is an S60 3rd Edition FP2 device that has a lot to brag about. An awesome 2.4″ OLED screen, a 5MP camera with LED flash, HSDPA, WiFi, Bluetooth, an optical mouse for a more intuitive browsing experience, an accelerometer, built-in GPS with geotagging and navigation (only 10 European cities supported), an FM Transmitter.
Being an S60 device, the I7110 will allow you to install tons of 3rd-party applications and hence transform it into a mobility powerhouse. At only 12.9mm thick, and with a metallic body, the I7110 is definitely a looker and a very tempting alternative for the Nokia N85.
