Big Changes – Update

Big Changes. Update.

Since my last post about the changes that were happening with Gavin’s Gadgets, the response has been overwhelming.

I have received such kind comments and feedback on here, via email, twitter, Google+, Facebook, texts, WhatsApp and more.

Thank you, thank you. There are no words to express my gratitude. So as “Steve Jobs” famously said “Just One More Thing”. 

So stay tuned. One more thing incoming that wasn’t going to be published but will be 15 minutes after this post. 

Big changes for Apple iPhone in 2017

Samsung Display Co. will begin supplying Apple with OLED display panels starting in 2017, according to The Korea Herald.

The deal is worth $2.59 billion which translates into Samsung providing Apple with 100 million units of 5.5-inch OLED panels annually.

Currently, all iPhones have LCD based displays so to switch to OLED displays really is a big change. OLED panels remove the need for backlighting used in traditional LCD panels. This should mean slimmer bezels on newer iPhones. OLED displays should translate into crisper images and brighter colours. However, the downside of OLED panels is more expensive manufacturing costs with shorter life span and the dreaded screen burn. Let’s hope these issues are non existent by 2017!
