Samsung has shown the sweet looking new X838 mobile phone for release in China.
In addition to being a GSM phone, there’s an onboard MP3 player with an iPod-esque click wheel interface and 1GB of memory for storage of tunes.
Samsung has unveiled this super-slick Digital Multimedia Broadcasting (DMB) portable television featuring a 4-inch widescreen LCD TFT display.
The DMB-T450 will also feature built in MP3 playback, virtual surround sound, and USB connectivity (oddly it’s USB 1.1, though).
Samsung showed of their new LE40M91 LCD flat panel at the IFA conference in Berlin this week.
The new set features a high-powered LED backlight, said to boost color gamut to 146% and the LCD panel claims a 10,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, which is extremely good for an LCD panel.
The new Samsung LN-S5296D is a 1080P (1920×1080) resolution 52-inch LCD flat panel HDTV due in stores by September. The set is one of the largest LCD flat panels you can get on the street for less than $5000 USD.
At the 2006 International Meeting on Information Display in South Korea, Samsung demonstrated prototype portable screens using AMOLED display technology.
AMOLED (Active Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diode) claims to have a much greater contrast ratio, lower power consumption, better viewing angle, wider color gamut and faster refresh rate than similar TFT LCD screens.
Samsung Electronics has developed the first consumer 70″ LCD HDTV panel, besting Sharp’s 65″ panel introduced late last year.
The set will feature a full 1080p resolution and a 180 degree viewing angle. In addition, the refresh rate is 120Hz vs 60Hz, which should result in less visible blurring and flicker.
