Samsung said to be looking for OLED panel buyers as Apple slashes production of iPhone X

Samsung seems to be dealing with some excess OLED panels as Apple reduces production of the iPhone X. The South Korean tech company ramped up its production of the panels because of the projected demand for Apple’s latest flagship. However, according to a report released by Nikkei Asian Review, “production of the iPhone X, whose sales have been sluggish, is expected to drop by half in the first 3 months of this year from the initial estimate of over 40 million units.” And now Samsung is said to be looking for other buyers but smartphone makers have been shying away from the tech because of its prohibitive price. Instead, they're opting to stick with LCDs at the moment. Also, Samsung is facing some tough competition from Chinese OLED panel makers. They are expanding their production capacity, which means they can pose a threat price-wise to the company.

Google looking to improve 911 call location accuracy in the US

Google has set out to make it easier for emergency responders to locate callers who use mobile phones instead of landlines to call in an emergency. Carrier-based location reports or those calls made on mobile phones have been less than accurate when it comes to determining the location. Google is testing out a new system to help get 911 operators faster and more accurate information.

In December and January, Android users based in Texas, Tennessee, and Florida who called 911 had their locations routed to dispatchers via Google’s system. RapidSOS, a company involved in the project, said that 80% of the cases, Google’s location data was more accurate than those provided by the carrier’s. Google’s method was able to show an average location radius of 121 feet, which trumps the 522 feet average from a cell network location. The location data got to the dispatchers quicker as well. Google is looking to expand the system around the US later in the year. The company will be at a 911 industry conference this week to present its findings.

Pixel owners get behind the scenes look at 'Isle of Dogs' movie in VR

 

If you’re a Google Pixel owner (either generation) and are a fan of Wes Anderson, you’ll want to hear about this latest news from the company. Owners of these Google-branded devices get exclusive access to behind-the-scenes footage of the stop-motion film Isle of Dogs. The film is set in Japan and follows around a boy who goes on an epic adventure to find his dog.

The movie itself comes out at the end of March but for now Google Pixel owners just need to hop onto the Google Spotlight Stories app to access 360-degree virtual reality experience of the film. It’s advisable to use a Daydream View headset to get the full experience. On March 2, Isle of Dogs Behind the Scenes in VR will be available in VR, 360, and 2D via YouTube VR and Fox Searchlight YouTube app as well as any platform that supports YouTube VR app.

Fans of Iron Man are in for a treat. Lego just unveiled at the New York Toy Fair a buildable set based on the Hulkbuster suit we’ve seen in 2015 movie Avengers: Age of Ultron. The Lego Marvel Super Heroes The Hulkbuster: Ultron Edition comes with 1,363 pieces, a punching jackhammer arm, a special Iron Man Mark 43 minifigure, a Lego light brick for its chest, and a platform for the figure to be placed on. Some of the special features for the Hulkbuster include a flip-up head, rotating torso, 12 glow-in-the-dark elements, and posable joints. It measures just over 9 inches high, 3 inches long, and 8 inches wide. This Lego set is going on sale in the US on March 3rd and will cost US$120 (around CA$150).
