New Samsung TV can go from flat to curved on demand


Samsung are set to release the world’s firist bendable television in Korea on August 1st. The tech giant will release a 78-inch, 4K display that can switch from a curved display to a flat display. This will be perfect for people who want to enjoy a curved display when their on their own, but don’t want to restrict the viewing range when with others.

While Samsung have yet  to announce any pricing details, we imagine this display won’t come cheap. Samsung revealed that their 105-inch UHD curved display will cost a whopping $120,000, so don’t expect a bargain for the bendable television either.

What do you think of this development? Are curved displays just a fad? Leave us a comment and let us know your thoughts.

The future looks…faster!



Wouldn’t it be great if it would take just a mere second to download your favourite movies, straight to your phone?

Fiction, you might say – until now!

Good news, smartphoone fans – Samsung says it has tested 5G technology, and guess what, it’s a hundred times faster than 4G!

The tech giant, which has developed the next generation of mobile technology, claims it could take just one second for 5G users to download a film to their smartphone, as well as send massive loads of data.

It spells good news for smartphone lovers as it will mean that users will be able to enjoy a wide range of services like 3D movies and games and real-time streaming of ultra HD content.

However, now for the bad news. This game-changing, break-through technology is still in the very early stages of development and Samsung says it could be another 7 years until we can have the pleasure of being a 5G user.

But, if anything, these latest tests give us a glimpse of what’s yet to come.
