5 ways the iPhone X could be better

  5 ways the iPhone X could be better With about seven months to go until Apple unveils its new 2018 iPhone lineup, it seems like we shouldn't be talking about the company's iPhone X successors right now. According to Kuo, Apple plans to release not two but three new iPhone models this coming September. One will be a proper sequel to the current 5.8-inch OLED iPhone X, and the second will reportedly be a larger Plus version with a 6.5-inch OLED screen. Then there will supposedly be a third new iPhone model that features a 6.1-inch LCD display with lower resolution, and it’ll apparently cost less that Apple’s OLED iPhones.

This is a great idea . Apple would be far from the first to use such a curve , but since the tech has fallen out of favor in smartphones, it’s a good time to A curved screen can significantly reduce the distance your thumb has to travel to reach the top of the screen. Again, a curve naturally follows the arches of

But why would you want a curved screen ? The curved edges of the Samsung Galaxy S6, which introduced the de facto standard for curved smartphone screens I must frankly say a curved screen is a minor step," He said that the ultimate promise of OLED technology is flexible screens that can be

Earlier this week a Bloomberg report suggested Apple was working on – or at least considering – a curved screen iPhone. Unlike Samsung’s phones, which curve down on the sides, this theoretical iPhone would curve inwards, like a banana.

This is a great idea. Apple would be far from the first to use such a curve, but since the tech has fallen out of favor in smartphones, it’s a good time to bring it back.

Curved screens are more durable

A curved screen is less likely to scratch and more likely to survive a bad drop than a flat screen.

It’s pretty obvious when you think about it. If you set a flat screen on a table, the entire glass surface thing is at the mercy of any material that could scratch it. Even if it’s just a mild curve, only the top and bottom edges would be in contact with a flat surface. I distinctly remember that past curved devices I’ve tested were far less prone to scratches.

Apple Is Said to Plan Giant High-End IPhone, Lower-Priced Model

  Apple Is Said to Plan Giant High-End IPhone, Lower-Priced Model Apple Inc. is preparing to release a trio of new smartphones later this year: the largest iPhone ever, an upgraded handset the same size as the current iPhone X and a less expensive model with some of the flagship phone’s key features. Load Error With the new lineup, Apple wants to appeal to the growing number of consumers who crave the multitasking attributes of so-called phablets while also catering to those looking for a more affordable version of the iPhone X, according to people familiar with the products.Apple, which is already running production tests with suppliers, is expected to announce the new phones this fall.

Well technically they already have a curved screen , it’s just not a touchable screen and it’s not an OLED one either. The only reason Apple would An OLED screen, on the other hand, would add a lot to the iPhone . Better colors, better battery life, better features (like the always-on display) so a regular

A new report claims Apple's next iPhone will replace the glass LED display with curved Plastic OLED. On the surface that sounds like a bad idea because plastic, after all, scratches much easier than glass—but in this case Next year’s iPhone could sport a curved display thanks to Plastic OLED.

No risk of scratching most of the display, even when set down on concrete.

The same goes for drops; while any bad drop could shatter glass, a curved phone would be less likely to crack due to landing on some small protrusion on the ground.

Curved phones are more ergonomic

A banana-shaped iPhone would also help ensure you won’t drop your phone in the first place. The curve would fit the contours of your hand better, for one.

Go ahead and pick up your phone. Notice the big gap between your palm and the back of the device? That means that only your fingertips are really keeping a grip on your phone, wasting valuable surface area that could increase friction and make your future iPhone more secure in hand.

It also just feels nice.

Apple iPhone X: This Is Why Users Refused to Upgrade

  Apple iPhone X: This Is Why Users Refused to Upgrade Speculation is rising Apple will release three new models in 2018.Speculation over the sales performances of Apple’s latest smartphones, the iPhone X and iPhone 8, have dogged the Cupertino tech company for months, as rumors swirled following the alleged cutting of production of organic light-emitting diode (OLED) screens produced by Samsung in Seoul, South Korea.

A curved display could enable Apple to produce a handset with an edge-to-edge screen with practically no bezels. OLED screens differ from LED panels because their pixels are self-illuminating while LEDs are used to light an LCD screen . Recent reports from a source speaking to Nikkei Asian

It helps the software experience

A curved screen can significantly reduce the distance your thumb has to travel to reach the top of the screen.

Again, a curve naturally follows the arches of your hands, which aren’t designed to interact with a flat slab. This would make it easier to reach UI elements near the top of your screen.  Considering Apple is rumored to be working on a 6.5-inch iPhone, a curved display could go a long way towards making it more comfortable to use with one hand.

The G Flex 2 may have been ahead of its time.

There’s another small bonus: A curved screen would help FaceID recognize you when the phone is lying on a desk, as the camera would be angled towards your face. That should appease some of those who miss TouchID.

It’s more immersive

While the hype over curved TVs has gone down, curved displays can make for a more immersive viewing experience as they naturally follow your field of view. This is most effective on either extremely large displays (say, an IMAX theater), or a screen that’s very close to your eyes (like a computer monitor).

Such screens mean higher image quality and thinner phone bodies because they don't require back lights. Apple did not immediately return CNET's request for comment. Curved iPhone 8? Apple said to be exploring OLED screens (CNET Update report). Your browser does not support the audio element.

The iPhone X does NOT have a 180 deg curved display!! That’s what Apple implied by their The renders in their advertising imply that there is a continuous curved panel folding 180 deg and That’s not accurate and would be an expensive, irrational idea as you can’t see inside the phone so why

The latter scenario also applies to phones. Now that phones commonly approach or exceed a six-inch diagonal, people are more likely to view entire episodes and even movies on them. A mild curve could go a long way towards creating a more immersive experience, especially on the rumored iPhone X Plus.

The design could also help reduce glare from sunlight when used outdoors.

Apple could do it right

Again, Apple isn’t inventing curved smartphones, but the company is rarely first. Instead, Apple tends to introduce technology others pioneered when it feels it can perfect it. That could happen with curved displays.

For reference, the Google/Samsung GalaxyNexus was one of the first phones with a curved panel, way back in 2011. LG had some of the most dramatic examples with phones like the G Flex several years ago.

But they eventually fell out of favor, in part because OLED wasn’t really mature. This was back when the technology wasn’t categorically superior to LCD and the displays were prone to ridiculous over-saturation and dramatic burn-in. Introducing a curved design just added extra complications.

iPhone SE 2 with iPhone X style notch leaks in video

  iPhone SE 2 with iPhone X style notch leaks in video Apple looks set to reveal a new iPhone SE 2 soon which will bring features from the top-end iPhone X to an affordable handset. The video, leaked on Mac Otakara, shows off what is apparently the new iPhone SE 2 handset. It looks a lot like a perfect cross between an iPhone X and an iPhone SE.

Times are different now. Apple, which always favored LCD, moved onto OLED with the iPhone X, and is rumored to be working on its own display technology.

It would also give Apple a design advantage. While the notch was a unique detail at first, it’s already become routine. As hard as it might be to divorce the image of an iPhone from that of a flat slab, lets not forget Apple used to make computers that looked like this. Now that bezel-less phones have been achieved, I’m ready to move onto bolder designs.

A concave iPhone could help Apple stay ahead of the curve. Pun intended.

Ever since the Ed O’Bannon ruling, college football fans have had to deal with the fact that a fully licensed college football video game is probably not going to happen anytime soon (and even if it did, they should want the players to be compensated for their likenesses). Desperate for anything resembling a college football game, fans were overjoyed to hear IMackulate Vision Gaming is creating a college football video game called “Gridiron Champions,” set to launch for PC, PS4 and Xbox One in 2020.
