    Just what use would an iris scanner be on a smartphone? When will 2K displays take over the smartphone world (and why should we care)? How exactly does one spell "Magotes," anyway? If these questions have ever crossed your worried minds -and even if they haven't- the second-to-last episode of the Pocketnow Weekly's 2013 season is right up your twisted alley, friend. But even if you're not interested in such tomfoolery, there's still plenty here to ping your pong.

    Click this link to join the hangout! . Topic We've been supporters of new platforms and startups for quite some time, and it is also the case of our friends at Jolla.

Evolution? Gimmick? Useful feature? ...

    You've known they've been coming; for the past several weeks now a couple OEMs have been teasing their work on smartphones featuring 2K resolution displays. Yesterday we saw Oppo get very official with confirmation of the Find 7's 2K display, and today we take the next step with Vivo, as we see the company launch its own 2K handset, the six-inch Xplay 3S. It's not just the display that's high-end. Beyond that 2560 x 1440 panel, the phone packs a Snapdragon 800, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, some premium audio DAC and amplifier chips, and a 3200mAh battery. Around back, there's not ...

    You can spend all day talking about how 2K displays won't really make any positive impact on smartphones: how no one's going to be able to notice any quality difference compared to 1080p, how performance and battery life will be inevitable causalities, or how manufacturers are only introducing such components for the sake of saying “look what I have that you don't.” But make no mistake; they're coming. We've heard about a few early contenders for phones that might arrive with displays in the 2560 x 1440 range, and today we start getting launch details on one of them, the Vivo Xplay 3S. ...

    Last year, we saw tablets push beyond the 1080p boundary with devices like the Nexus 10 and its 2560 x 1600 resolution. We've since seen panels with similar resolutions (though scaling back to 2560 x 1440) show up on additional tablets, and LG even teased a smartphone-sized display that shrunk everything down to a stunning 534ppi. Call it 1440p, or WQHD – whatever name you give it, you're still looking at 78% more pixels than 1080p.  Now we finally learn of a commercial device to feature such a component, with China's Vivo dropping a little preview of its upcoming Xplay3S.
