    Samsung seriously has its hands full when it comes to Android tablets at the moment. We had the TabPROs and that one NotePRO at CES, and last week the company introduced the lower-end Tab4 lineup. With sizes running the gamut from 7.0 inches up to 12.2, and the differences in screen resolution and processing power between the families, you'd think that Samsung had all its tablet bases nicely covered. But there's still been this persistent rumor that Samsung has even more tablets on the drawing board, and it could be planning to bring OLED displays back to its tablet offerings with a few ...

    Samsung has already introduced a nice spread of tablets this year, launching its new TabPRO and NotePRO models, but we've been under the impression that even more devices are on their way. We've seen plenty of evidence pointing to some lower-end Galaxy Tab4 models, and Samsung itself seemed to confirm their existence on its own site. Beyond that, we've been talking about the idea of Samsung returning to OLED displays for a tablet or two, and have been following some possible contenders. Today we see one such model return, alongside a slightly smaller tablet, in GFXBench performance ...

    I just wrapped up my review of the Galaxy TabPRO 8.4 on Friday. When I was told I'd be reviewing yet another Samsung tablet, my head cocked back, shoulders dropped, and I let out a breathy sigh. Honestly, I can't say I've actually reviewed all that many Samsung tablets in my day. But each model, despite the minute changes along the way, have been to the same effect: a promising tablet that could be so much more with a little additional effort. For example, the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition I reviewed last year, on paper, looked fantastic. Sure, like all other Samsung devices, its plastic ...

    Smartphones are finally getting weird again, and I love it. Just a couple years ago, the landscape was a lot different than it is today, with a lot more variety in the sort of models that were coming out – for better or worse. We had that brief fling with autostereoscopic 3D phones, saw a number of models with multiple screens, and had manufacturers experimenting with some pretty elaborate form factors – heck, sometimes even doing more than one of those at a time, like the Kyocera Echo with dual screens and a crazy convertible tablet mode. But now: slate, slate, slate, slate. Even the ...

    Smartphones with curved displays are here, and as we saw with the LG G Flex, they're even a bit flexible already. Yesterday, we brought you a slide from Samsung's Analyst Day event (which continues to be a font of great information) depicting the company's plans for the evolution of this tech, focusing on more bendable designs next year before full-on foldable models emerging sometime in mid-2015. While actual commercial foldable products may still be a long way off, it turns out that Samsung's also been showing off some of its current designs, giving us an idea of what to expect. Analyst ...

    Samsung been talking a lot about the future lately; we only just looked at where the company's heading in terms of device resolution. Of course, resolution is only one of many factors we look at when evaluating displays, and it can be just as important to talk about the underlying technology. While there are plenty of different ways you can implement things, it often boils down to LCD versus OLED. We love the rich saturation and outstanding contrast OLED displays afford, but they've largely been constrained to smaller screens; we saw Samsung deliver the Galaxy Tab 7.7 with an OLED display, ...

    Among the most important features of any mobile device is its display. The display is the one part of the device you will spend 99 percent of your time staring at when using it. But not only is it the main source of output, it's the primary form of input, too. If the display is too big, too small or difficult to see in sunlight, using it becomes more of a chore than anything. Like televisions, the overall quality of a display can be judged on a handful of specs – not just the size and resolution. Mobile displays are gauged on clarity, color gamut, saturation, contrast, reflectiveness, ...
