Will the iPhone 8 have bezel-less displays?

iPhone 8 Bezel-less Design Confirmed

brownlee-edited-the-ios-11-home-screen-onto-the-dummy-model-using-adobes-after-effects-software-to-see-what-the-phone-might-look-like-while-powered-on

Many are familiar with popular youtuber MKBHD who has been presenting a “dummy” model of the iPhone 8. Reports have been stating that Apple is already in the process of manufacturing the iPhone 8 models in anticipation of it’s release soon in a couple of months. The next-generation iPhone 8 is a cross breed between the LG G6, the Essential Phone, and a bit of the Samsung Galaxy Infinity Display series. Apple purchased a large shipment of OLED displays from Samsung last year and we are expecting it to arrive this year so we expect Apple to include awesome OLED panels into the iPhone 8. The iPhone 8’s then, should produce deeper blacks and more vibrant colors.

As leaked earlier the new iPhone 8 design features this is the closest rendition we have to what it may look like. Unfortunately, leaks cannot be taken as facts and this dummy iPhone 8 model may be wrong. However, we do know that people are expecting Apple to unveil a special edition of the iPhone 8 during Apple’s event in September which may feature a completely different design.

The design suggests that the home button is removed from the front and is now found on the side (the button doubles as a finger print sensor). The display also reaches all the way to the top of the phone which serves as a “status bar” area but is a continuous display from top to bottom. The display is only interrupted in the top center region due to sensors and the selfie camera.

and-itll-have-a-notch-at-the-top-for-sensors-and-the-front-facing-camera-this-is-probably-where-the-rumored-3d-facial-recognition-camera-would-be-located

The iPhone 8 is reported to have a 2436 x 1125 resolution panel which should yield a sharper display than the 1080p resolution found on the iPhone 7 Plus.

The edge-to-edge display panel also includes a 3D facial recognition system at the top which is Apple’s next implementation that is expected to replace the Touch ID fingerprint sensor.

Further rumors and reports have suggested that the iPhone 8 will now come with a glass back panel instead of aluminium metal backs. This is sort of a throwback to the iPhone 4 / 4S days but in this case we should expect the iPhone 8 to finally support wireless charging.  So will the iPhone 8 finally support wireless charging? We certainly hope so, and another leak showed an x-ray image that showed wireless charging coils undergoing tests.

G-Color’s 2 pack film screen protector comes with its own little case that is crucial in the application process. The product has received high praise and reviews on Amazon and it seems to be the best go to solution for your Galaxy S8. There is a video that the company provides for users to follow as well. The installation uses a wet application technique which enables you to slide the protector around until it fits exactly right. You can peel it off and re-apply if you made an error.

The film screen protector is also bubble free and prevents edges from being lifted off. Bubbles disappear within 24 hours and if the edges / corners lift up simply apply more of the wet solution and use a microfiber cloth to push it down.

The screen protector comes with a case that helps keep the edges intact which the instructions state that you should keep it on for 72 hours at least.

Once you follow the steps properly you will find that this is the best screen protector option available. You can put on any case for it and you have a scratch proof, fully sensitive, clear film solution.

The next screen protector that seems to have great reviews is the SPARIN Galaxy S8 Screen Protector. This screen protector is designed to fit the Galaxy S8 perfectly with its 5.8 inch Infinity Display. It covers your thin bezels well and is also case-friendly. The company also claims that your display’s touch sensitivity should be un-hindered due to its thin design. The product comes with wet wipes, dust-absorber’s, microfiber cloth, and 2 of these soft 3D screen protectors. Many users have found it to be excellent and a great alternative to tempered glass protectors that also cover the whole display but face many issues such as edges lifting off or cracking over time. The product is not expensive and is excellent.

One thing that users have warned others about is that due to the perfect fitting of the protector, the user would have to carefully apply it to fit the protector exactly right.

3) EURPMASK 3+1 Ultra HD Clear TPU Protective Film (Anti-Scratch and Bubble FREE)

However, once applied the flexible materials will protect your phone edge to edge and also a bonus rear protection film included will give you full coverage front and back.

5) Moshi Ion Glass for Galaxy S8

71j4rulCvGL._SL1500_

This glass screen protector from Moshi has a 9H rating on the hardness scale. 9H means that it should be pretty good at resisting scratches and getting shattered. Moshi claims to be using atomically-strengthened glass which is apparently a lot stronger than tempered glass. The company cuts from curved pieces of glass which provides precise protection for the Galaxy S8. The screen protector then fits like a glove on the face of your S8 covering the tiny bezels as well as making it look like you aren’t using a screen protector at all! There is an extra coating on top that is oleo-phobic (anti-finger print). Moshi claims that their IONGlass protector is about 40% thinner than most protectors available on the market today.

New iPhone 8 leaks Reveal Attention Detection, virtual home button, Bezel-less Display and Tap to Wake

New iPhone 8 leaks reveal attention detection, virtual home button, Bezel-less Display and Tap to Wake

iphone-8-render-7-and-7s-800x525

We received even more details about possible features that the upcoming Apple iPhone 8 will have. The features were revealed when someone took a look around HomePod’s firmware (which is the same iOS that runs on the iPhone). This revealed a tap to wake function, a new sensor that detects facial expressions and something called the “Attention detection” feature. There are also indications that Apple will be finally getting rid of that historic home button in favor for a digital on screen home button.

Apple seems to have accidentally released the firmware including all the code that indicate these details. The discovery also leads to a conclusion that the display resolution will also see a massive upgrade from current generation displays (like how the iPhone 4’s Retina Display appeared after generations of lower resolution iPhones). The code names that Apple is using for the face recognition is “Pearl ID” while the bezel-less design feature is codenamed “D22”.

iphone-8-forbes

The code you see in the image shows instruction sets that enable the device to detect certain facial expressions. Apple has been working on infrared camera set ups that would enable the next iPhone to see your facial expressions even in the dark. This could be a big break through compared to all other facial recognition features that already exist today on the Android platform.

DGGptrmXsAYwwJD

The Display is also described in the code to be most likely “Edge to Edge”. As seen in other leaks the display also goes up and around the top selfie camera and speakers. It may be the case that Apple implemented a status bar there instead of a bezel.

A tap to Wake feature may also be presented in the iPhone 8 which will work similarly as the Windows Phone works. You simply need to double – tap the display to wake the phone up.

DGB1NW9W0AArqIl

Again, it seems like Apple is removing the home button and replacing it with a virtual one. The iPhone 7 already is pretty much a virtual button and not an actual physical button. Imagine moving that home button onto the display and creating more screen space like the Samsung Galaxy S8. The one bad news is that the users could not find any code pertaining to “ultrasound Touch ID” which would have enabled “on screen finger print reading”.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Dual Camera Features and Leaks

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Dual Camera Features and Leaks

DFPKMOvUIAIgj8r-1200x783

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 won’t be unveiled until August 23. However, a notable leaker who goes by the name Evan Blass recently posted another Galaxy Note 8 image on his twitter. What we can see is the Infinity Display which we have first seen on the Samsung Galaxy S8 / S8+ and the company stretched it across a longer area. The Note 8 still looks comparably thin and small despite it’s 6.3 inch display. We know it will come with the latest Snapdragon 835 processor but there is a potential for it to come with the Snapdragon 836 or 835 PRO edition instead.

Cloak3_Note8_2_Red_LR-1

Samsung has been marketing that the company is promising to “Do Bigger Things” so we are actually wondering what else (other than the naturally larger phone display and specs) Samsung has in store for us. A huge update that has been going around and seemingly confirmed is the new Samsung Dual camera system that will be available on the Note 8. This was revealed by the Samsung Electro Mechanics division who works on mobile imaging sensors and camera modules for Galaxy phone’s and devices. They revealed four key features that will be a part of the dual camera system: “Zoom”, “Perspective”, “Low Light Performance”, and “High Dynamic Range”. We have received reports that the Galaxy Note 8 will feature a 3X optical zoom. Optical zoom is very different compared to digital zoom in the fact that optical zoom has physically moving glass to zoom in on your subject as opposed to “digitally zooming in” via software gimmicks. Optical zoom retains image detail and quality while digital zoom loses a lot of information in your photos. This is an impressive feat if Samsung does pull this off for the Galaxy Note 8.

Samsung is also including an advanced “Depth Information Sensor” that enables the Note 8 to take i  mages of your subject with blown out (bokeh) backgrounds. Many new technical features will be included thanks to Samsung’s transition to their own dual camera set up.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is a huge revival of the Note series and the “Note” moniker usually indicates the latest and greatest. From what we have gathered the biggest thing that Samsung is bringing will be the display, and the dual camera with all it’s awesome features.

See you soon at UNPACKED 2017. August 23.

Google Pixel 2 News, Rumors and Release Date

Google Pixel 2 News, Rumors and Release Date01_G6_Design

Google’s new line of Pixel phone’s was a success which garnered praise around the world for being a fantastic stock android experience with great specs and hardware. Now the people look to the future for the next iteration of the acclaimed Google phone: the Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2 XL. Here we gather together all of the rumors and leaks that have been going around on the web.

The next gen Google Pixel 2 device is expected to arrive sometime late 2017 either in Q3 or Q4. It should come in time to begin competing with major rivals being the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and the upcoming Apple iPhone 8.

Google is expected to continue their design strategy by including the latest, safest and cleanest build of Android, high quality build materials, excellent camera and optimized battery life. The Pixel brand was created on top of the Nexus foundation with the help of HTC’s manufacturing process.


 

New UPDATE: The Google Pixel 2 is apparently going to be the first smartphone to receive the Snapdragon 836 processor which will be faster than the latest Snapdragon 835 which is found in the Galaxy S8. This would make the Google Pixel one of the most powerful devices we will see later this year.

It also appears that The Google Pixel 2 will NOT have a 3.5mm head phone jack port which is based off of a CAD rendering which revealed the Google flagship. This would be extremely disappointing for many.


 

 

Release Date Speculation

We are expecting for the Google Pixel 2 and the Pixel XL 2 to be released sometime in October because the original Pixel first launched in October 2016.

How Much will it Be?

The Pixel 2 will certainly come with a flagship price which will begin at 650$ and it can go up to 800$ for the XL model. The pricing can certainly be higher depending on the materials used. Basically the price will be up there with Samsung and Apple.

How Many Models will be released?

The total number of models that are being released will be 2. Initially there was supposed to be 3 models. We are in store for a larger version of the smartphone (code name: Taimen) which features a 5.99 inch display.

screen shot 2017-07-26 at 51603 pm

Interesting Leaks About the Pixel 2’s Display

  • 5.6 inch / 5.99 inch 18:9 display (like the LG G6)
  • Curved Display and Glass
  • 2560 x 1312 Resolution
  • Tiny Bezels

These are the leaked specs for the Google Pixel 2. It may very much follow the trend that Samsung began with their AMOLED curved displays. Google has been trying to put in some orders for the curved OLED displays from the LG Display Company. However, because of the ambiguity of the details some have theorized that LG themselves will take part in the actual manufacturing of one of the Pixel 2 models.

There was another source that suggested that the Google Pixel 2 will come with either a 4.97 inch display alongside a 5.99 inch bigger brother. if the panels do indeed turn out to be AMOLED panels this specification would match that of the S8.

Thanks to the curved display we are expecting the Google Pixel 2 to have near bezel-less display real estate.

Google Pixel 2 Specs

  • Snapdragon 836 
  • 4GB RAM
  • 64 GB / 128 GB internal storage
  • Lack of 3.5mm headphone jack
  • Water Resistance
  • Rear-facing fingerprint scanner

The snapdragon 836 is included due to an update that suggested that the Google Pixel 2 will indeed come with the upgraded Snapdragon processor. If the Pixel 2 indeed comes with the Snapdragon 836 chipset, it would surpass the performance power of the Samsung Galaxy S8. Sources have suggested that the 836 has a 10% power advantage over the 835. On top of performance improvements there are also battery life improvements provided.

The 4GB of RAM seems to becoming the standard for this year for Google while a 64GB and a 128 GB model will be available.

A very saddening news came from the CAD rendering images of the Pixel 2 devices. The images indicated a lack of a 3.5mm headphone jack. We hope this is not true.

The Pixel 2 will have water and dust resistance (most likely rated at IP68 like the Galaxy S8). The fingerprint sensor is found on the back of the device.

Google Pixel 2 Battery Life and Camera Specs

  • 12 MP rear
  • 7 MP selfie camera
  • Upgraded sensor and improved camera compared to the original Pixel

It is not surprising that a company would include the very best in their flagship device. Therefore, sources have found that the Pixel 2 will indeed have improved camera modules included but specifics weren’t provided.

In leaked renders of the Google Pixel 2 shows cut outs that differ from the bigger and smaller versions of the Pixel 2. The 12 MP rear camera will certainly have 4K video enabled.

Battery size is still unknown but most speculate that the smaller version will have a 2770 mAh pack while the larger Pixel 2 XL will have the 3450 mAh battery.

 

Top 10 LG G6 Tips & Tricks Plus Bonus!

Top 10 LG G6 Tips & Tricks Plus Bonus!

01_G6_Design

Today we present to you 10 tips that will help improve your user experience while using your LG G6! We want to give you a clean and quick instructional here. If you prefer to watch we have a video showcasing the below Tips plus a Bonus! Let’s get to it.

Tip 1: APP Scaling

Did you know that you can decide how an application installed on your phone will use your phone’s screen? The LG G6 has a unique display size which is “tall” with an 18:9 aspect ratio. To access this setting simply go to: “Settings > Display > App Scaling”. Tap on an App you want to modify then select from the options, tap 18:9 to enable the app to go full screen eliminating the black borders.

Tip 2: Comfort View (Blue Light Filter)

When using your phone at night your eyes take a lot of the brunt from the phone’s display. LG has included “comfort view” as a feature that should help relieve your eyes and reduce too much eyestrain. The main purpose for this is to help users fall asleep by reducing the blue light from the screen creating a warmer display. LG also includes a Black and White mode if that is your thing. To enable this go to “Settings > Display > Comfort View”.

Tip 3: Always On Display

Always On features have been seen for a couple of years on flagship phones so far. The LG G6 will also employ this awesome feature which can be found at: Settings > Display > Always On Display. Enabling this will show you your time, battery life, date, notifications and indicators for other functions on your screen when the phone’s display is turned OFF. Meaning, during sleep mode the G6 will still feed you relevant information by using a part of the display. Pretty cool.

Tip 4: Changing Your Homescreen Icon’s

Another cool little tip: you can modify the look of your homescreen icons. To get to this option simply tap and HOLD any homescreen app icon and let go after a second or two. This will reveal a Purple Paint Brush on top of the app icon. Tap that purple brush badge to open up a large menu of icons you can choose from. You can even add your own. Hit OK to confirm.

Tip 5: Changing Your Folder Appearance

To add on to your ability to customize your experience we found that you can also modify the folder’s appearance. To do this you will need a folder on your homescreen (a collection of apps). Tap your folder on your homescreen to open it up and tap and HOLD the “Name” of the folder. After a second the option to modify the background color will appear.

Tip 6: LG KnockON Feature

LG phone’s have this cool feature where you can simple tap on the screen twice in quick succession to turn on your phone instead of you having to click the power key to wake up your phone. The LG G6 definitely has this feature as well. To get to this go to: “Settings > Display Tab > Scroll all the way to the bottom > Tap “MORE”. Tap to enable KnockON. Once this is on try turning the display off and double tapping on your screen to begin turning it on in this new and unique way.

Tip 7: How To Customize Virtual Buttons

Among all these awesome customization options you also have the option to modify how your virtual buttons will look (the back, home, and multitasking buttons at the bottom). To get to this simply go to: “Settings > Display Tab > Home Touch Buttons”. You can change the background color from white to black or back again to white for the virtual buttons and even swap the keys around (if you prefer the back button to be on the right side).

Tip 8: Setting Your Themes

A huge way to customize your LG G6 to make it look as how YOU want it to look is through Themes. To access this go to “Settings > Display Tab > Themes”. This will reveal to you a large selection of various themes that you can officially install. This affects how your phone’s UI will look inside and out. This is also a great option if you are starting to get bored of how the phone looks everyday.

Tip 9: Display Size

Adjusting the Display size will give you normal, large or small icon sizes. To get to this setting go to: “Settings > Display Tab > Display Size”. This is useful if you want to have small icons to fit more onto the screen, keep things regular, or if you have a hard time seeing and want to minimize a little bit the large option is available for you.

Tip 10: Screen Swiping Animations

You also have the option to choose a Screen Swiping Effect! This takes effect whenever you swipe from home screen to home screen. Go to: “Settings > Display Tab > Home Screen > Screen Swipe Effect”. Here you will be able to choose between the regular “sliding” animation you see when swiping around to maybe a carousel, accordion, panorama and more. Selecting an option will preview the effect for you to make it a lot easier for you to choose. Brilliant.

 

 

 

 

 

Latest iPhone 8 Leaked Images shows Fancy Status Bar

Latest iPhone 8 Leaked Images shows Fancy Status Bar

iphone-8-forbes

 

The Rumors surrounding the mysterious iPhone 8 has been a hot topic. The iPhone 8 is expected to make its debut this year sometime after the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is introduced. The iPhone 8 is expected to have an edge-to-edge display that is new for Apple, but not new for the rest of the world. However, there are a few unique points that is presented in these leaks. First, there are LED panels that are hidden at the very top bezel beside the selfie camera and the speaker grill. This component will show the signal bars and the battery life bar. The status bar is, essentially, getting its own special spot up top while Apple’s iOS should be able to utilize that new space to cleanly integrate a customized status bar.

forbes-iphone-8-2

An iPhone case making company called “Nodus” made specific claims about the size of the bezel’s found on the iPhone 8. They are measured to be 4mm on each side. Combined with such narrow bezels, that which we have never seen before on an Apple product, will be those added led status bar functions found at the top (beside the selfie camera). Many have stated that this would eliminate having the need to reach with your fingers to the very top of the device to pull down the notification panel. The renders in this post show how elegant of a solution this could be for Apple to implement in the iPhone 8. A very sleek way of integrating status bar information into the top bezel indeed.

forbes-iphone-8-3

Another leak has suggested that Apple is making plans to remove their Touch ID functionality in favor of facial recognition features. This stems from the incompatibility it would have with the larger screen that have smaller bezel’s than it’s predecessors. It also seems that both Samsung and Apple will not be able to successfully integrate a fingerprint scanner into the displays of their upcoming flagship models.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Unveiling Date Officially Confirmed

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Unveiling Date Officially Confirmed

GREAT-Invitation_main_1

August 23rd. The event will be held at Samsung’s Unpacked event around the world. The main event is set to occur in New York City beginning at 11 a.m. ET.

The event is crucial for the company as Apple is also gearing up to announce their next iPhone. Samsung’s press invitations included a silhouetted phone which is a bit more square compared to the S8 and with an S pen shown as well. During the press many are expecting someone to take some time to explain or remind the people of how the company is taking safety seriously. Samsung’s current battery check (8-point check system) is the best in the industry.

Expected specs of the Note 8 include a 6.3 inch Infinity Display, 6 GB of RAM, 64 or 128 GB of internal storage, 12 MP dual camera, Snapdragon 835 octa-core processor, a 3300 mAh battery, Android 7.1.1 and a more advanced S pen experience.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Release Date Timeline Unveiled!

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Release Date TimeLine is Unveiled!

1

On July 16 2017 Samsung had a press conference where the CEO and associates announced an important time frame for the upcoming and much anticipated Samsung Galaxy Note 8. This unveiling is set ahead of the IFA 2017 trade fair stating that the Note 8 will be unveiled in all its glory in August 2017. The phablet will then launch on September 1. Many sources in South Korea has mentioned that the flagship Note 8 will be unveiled on August 23.

The news came from Taiwan media which was then picked up by South Korean search giant Naver. The news company initially reported that Samsung Electronics officially revealed that the Galaxy Note 8 model will be unveiled near the end of August while the phone’s launch will occur early September.

The phone will certainly be released in the US, UK, and Korea in September. Other countries will receive the Note 8 is expected to have a specified release schedule set in October.

As usual, Samsung normally takes the stage for its next Galaxy Note unveiling in New York city. The company seems to have greater interest in focusing on US markets due to the fact that US consumers are more interested in a large screen smartphone compared to the UK.

The release date is not necessarily early but compared to past expectations (due to the Note 7) we thought that the Note 8 would be initially delayed to a later date. However, it seems that Samsung Electronics has determined that a regular “early” release date should provide early pre sales and maximize sales volumes before Apple launches their upcoming iPhone 8. Apple is expected to release the iPhone 8 during the month of September.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is expected to have a 6.3 inch QHD+ Super AMOLED display, a rear fingerprint sensor (similar to that of the S8 and S8+) and a Dual Camera. The Dual Camera expectation comes from Samsung’s past revealing of their new ISOCell camera line up. The Note 8 is expected to have either a 4 GB or a 6 GB RAM capacity and 64 GB or 128 GB of internal storage. One of the bigger changes would be the upgraded S Pen that is to be expected.

The Note 8 will come in a Snapdragon variant to the North American markets while the rest of the world will receive Samsung’s own Exynos variants of the device.

Last weekend we received some rendered images (above) of the Galaxy Note 8. We are only a month away so these images are beginning to be our best bet. Past sources have been quite accurate for the Note 7 and beyond when revealing leaked images a month prior to its unveiling. Overall, the rendered images show that the Note 8 does not differ that much from the Galaxy S8. The only difference is that the Note 8 will have that characteristic “boxy square” Note design instead. Hopefully, Samsung will present something amazing to help differentiate the Note 8 from the S8 crowd as it will be a crucial member of the Galaxy family to continue on the Samsung legacy.

Nokia’s Newest Flagship “Nokia 8” Final Leaks

Nokia’s Newest Flagship “Nokia 8” Final Leaks

nokia-8-leak

Nokia, in the past was bought out by a company called HMD Global who have worked hard to release the Nokia 3, 5, and 6. Now a new model is coming out which will be called the Nokia 8. This is a flagship model that will represent the company and help it to break into the “high-end” market and begin competing outside of the budget market.

The Nokia 8 will be bigger than the previous Nokia 3, 5 or 6 even though they have the same design language. However, what differentiates the 8 from it’s peers is its high end specs which can enable to to compete with already existing high end flagship phones. It will feature a 5.3 inch QHD display, a Snapdragon 835 processor, and about 4 GB of RAM. With HMD Global’s tight partnership with Carl Zeiss optics we expect the dual camera 13 Megapixel modules to be included. Nokia phone’s generally have a clean stock Android experience which means that the Android 7.1.1 should be pretty close (if not completely) a stock experience.

The Nokia 8 marks the companies first attempts at the high end segment in the smartphone industry. Up until now we have only seen budget models come out which are cheap yet pretty good. The Nokia 8 will most likely have a price tag of around 600$ or more. The price may not actually go up to the realm of Samsung or Apple due to the fact that the Nokia name is not yet regarded as “prestigious” as it’s competitors.

July 31st will be the unveiling date for the Nokia 8.
