While sitting here watching the Borne Ultimatum (again), I started thinking about the next iPad device. Since the iPhone X is the first iPhone to be basically bezel-less, I wonder if the next iPad will also be bezel-less. What do you think and why?
^And the notch!!
Actually seeing, iPads are better off with bezels. Sure, Apple could cut off a little bit more like they did with the 10.5-inch one this year, but going full-on bezel-less like the iPhone X isn’t a good thing for iPads in my opinion.
Why does everyone keep saying that OLED in a tablet is too hard? Samsung has been making gorgeous ones for theirs. I’m not understanding what would make it different for an iPad.
I don't necessarily know how hard it is to make them for tablets, but more of a yield rate/price problem. OLEDs are still pretty expensive, and making enough of them that Apple would need is what would be difficult.
Again, Samsung has made them for years for their tablets, and the newest one apparently has an amazing screen. So is it because they can't ramp up for iPads, or apple needs a higher margin? I'm tempted by the Samsung Galaxy tab 3, but I like using the handoff between iPad and my phone too much. But they do exist.
Probably both. You have to think about how many tablets Samsung sells vs how many Apple sells. The machines to make OLED displays are huge and basically have their own mini clean room around them. The last time I checked there was only one manufacturer in the world making the actual machines to build OLED screens, and they can’t make them fast enough. I believe it’s a division of Canon unless somebody bought them. I think LG was interested at one point.
There’s also the margin issue. The price would probably be way higher than current.
Not like the pop you see on Samsung's, which I know is a matter of the tuning.
Wouldn't an edge to edge display on a tablet be more prone to accidental touch and the screen may be easily breakable? Bezel on a tablet would suffice my requirement, unless tablets will get smaller screen sizes, which will not be true.
