New rumors say Samsung could be making the next iPhone processors. LG shows off what could be the G4’s screen. All while the new Silicon Valley gets ready for an epic launch.
Apple always announces a new and improved processor with its latest devices, and we can expect the next iPhones to get the same treatment. A new report says Apple’s biggest rival could be making these chips, though. Yes, we are talking about Samsung.
Apple’s A9 processor is said to go into production at a South Korean plant as soon as everything gets settled. These anonymous sources claim to be “familiar with he matter”.
Opinion: So the big guys are working together again. Seems like a reasonable choice. Samsung sure knows how to make processors. In fact, their latest Exynos chip is still the best around.
LG Display is known for its quality screens, but they have just announced a screen that really takes things to another level. This new 5.5-inch QHD screen comes wiht improved color gamut, more brightness, a high contrast ratio, smoother touch functionality, improved battery life and a thinner profile.
In fact, this screen can achieve 30% more brightness than other conventional QHD displays without consuming more power. Not only that, but the contrast ratio is 50% higher than conventional QHD panels. In summary, this thing is awesome!
Opinion: We usually wouldn’t report on pieces like these being announced; we tend to focus more on actual, completed devices. What really caught our eye here is that this is probably the display the LG G4 will use. After all, LG did mention this display will come in a “flagship smartphone to be unveiled at the end of the month“.
Silicon Valley is coming back, and we know many of you are getting ready to watch this geeky show. I happen to love it, so HBO is coming back to my living room. The thing is, I won’t be reactivating it until the second episode comes around. The Silicon Valley cast will be hosting a Q&A session on Twitch this April 8th, at 12 PM PT.
That is fun and all, but they are also giving us an early look at what’s coming from the new season. After this is all said and done, they will also stream the first episode of season 1 for free. Pretty awesome, right?
Opinion: I am so stoked to watch the new season of Silicon Valley. The show comes back on April 12th, right in time to give me a nice early birthday present.
