  1. Samsung has once again stressed that it's working on making foldable phones ready for mass production and that it intends to be the first company to launch a foldable phone. The company has been working on foldable phones for years now and we've already seen many patents and leaks, suggesting that the company is close to accomplishment. "We are focused on bringing innovations favoured by consumers, rather than just becoming the world's first. In terms of the foldable phone, however, we do not want to miss the first spot," said DJ Koh, president of Samsung's mobile division. At MWC 2018, he said the company was taking its time to polish the form factor and experience, declining to give a release date. © DJ Koh / Reuters Even Chinese phone maker Huawei is gunning for the "world's first" foldable smartphone. A recent report says development is underway and Huawei is hoping to unveil the handset in November. Apple is also said to be playing around with foldable display prototypes. The Samsung prototype, which bears the internal code name "Winner," features a screen that measures about 7-inches diagonally, according to people in the supply chain. "We want to hear that Samsung Electronics made a quality product when we showcase a foldable phone on the market," Koh said, claiming the release is getting closer. © YouTube The road to a consumer-ready foldable phone has been long and challenging from both a design and engineering perspective and it's been years now in the making. Other companies like ZTE have already introduced folding phones, as the Axon M was released in the US and features two, non-flexible displays. Koh also dismissed reports that the company has been considering combining the Galaxy S series and Galaxy Note series. He also added that the S10 won't be the first Samsung phone to sport 5G, but the company doesn't want to miss out on rolling out 5G and hence, will release a separate model. © ZTE "For the immediate future, there won't be a change in launching the S series in the first half and Note series in the second half of the year," he said. In preparation for the 5G era, Samsung is preparing for a shift from smartphones to smart devices, this may include Bixby powered smart speakers and deeper IoT integration. Source: Yonhap News
  2. Even though we've seen everything about the Galaxy Note 9 thanks to a collection of leaks in the past few weeks, Samsung announced their flagship smartphone today. The South Korean company announced the Galaxy Note 9 in New York today and here's what the smartphone is all about. Specifications And Features (c) Samsung The Galaxy Note 9 has a 6.4-inch (16.26 cm) QHD+ Super AMOLED Infinity Display with an 18.5:9 aspect ratio and has a resolution of 1440 x 2960 pixels. Currently, the smartphone runs on Android 8.1 out of the box and will be getting support for Android Pie sometime later in the year. The smartphone is powered by Snapdragon 845 SoC in the United States; however, India will be getting a variant with the Exynos 9820 processor. The processor is clocked at 1.9 GHz and is paired with 6GB or 8GB of RAM. In terms of battery, the smartphone is outfitted with a 4,000 mAh battery and is expected to last longer than its predecessor. The battery can be charged wireless and also supports quick charging. The smartphone is also outfitted with a fingerprint sensor at the back and has the additional feature of IRIS scanning. In terms of internal storage, the smartphone will come in two variants i.e. 128GB (6GB RAM) and 512 GB (8GB RAM). Internal storage can also be expanded to 1TB, thanks to the new microSD slot. Camera (c) Samsung The Galaxy Note 9 has a dual camera setup at the rear, both being 12-megapixel sensors. The primary sensor has a variable aperture of f/1.5-2.4 (1.4µm), optical image stabilisation and has dual pixel phase detection autofocus. The secondary camera has an aperture of f/2.4 and supports 2x optical zoom. The dual camera setup can also take portrait images that give a blur effect behind a subject. The camera is capable of taking videos at different speeds and frame rate, i.e. 2160p@60fps, 1080p@240fps, 720p@960fps, HDR, and also features dual-video recording. The All New S Pen (c) Samsung The Galaxy Note 9 comes with a brand new S Pen that does more than just being a stylus. The new S Pen is powered by Bluetooth and has a button for additional functionality. For example, the S Pen button can be used to play/pause music and can also be used to control the camera. The S Pen will flip the phone's camera with a double tap of the button. It can even take pictures for you without ever touching the phone. The S Pen can also be used to give presentations on Microsoft Powerpoint The S Pen will work for 30 minutes after 40 seconds of charging which is remarkable considering it has Bluetooth support. Additional Features (c) Samsung Samsung has also refined the AR Emoji feature on the smartphone that is now capable of detecting facial expressions with more accuracy. In other features, the Galaxy Note 9 also has better support Samsung DeX, which will transform the smartphone into a full-blown PC when connected via the special dock. Pricing And Other Details (c) Samsung The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will retail for $1000 (128GB) and $1250 (8GB + 512GB). The smartphone will launch in four colours i.e. blue, brown, black, lavender and grey. The Galaxy Note 9 is expected to launch in India later this month and we will be right there with you to give you the news.
  3. The Galaxy Note 9 launch is right around the corner and it seems like we can finally get a good glimpse of the upcoming smartphone. However, Samsung New Zealand put up the official intro video of the Galaxy Note 9 by accident, and we got to see the smartphone in all its glory. © Twitter The video was put on YouTube by mistake, which reveals the phone and the S Pen. The video shows off the blue variant with the gold/yellow S Pen. The video also tells us that the smartphone will come in a 512GB internal storage variant and can be further expanded by another 512GB via the microSD slot. This will make the smartphone capable of storing 1TB of data. As of now, it is not completely clear whether this variant will have 8GB of RAM, even though it looks likely. The video does not mention Bluetooth connectivity for the S Pen, as the video only shows us the stylus' ability to write on the display even when the phone is locked. © YouTube The Galaxy Note 9 announcement is only six days away and we know almost everything about the smartphone that is about to launch. Of course, this ruins Samsung's plans to surprise us with the new flagship device, however, one can never predict what the company has in store for its fans. The video was obviously taken down by the company, however, you can a look at a re-uploaded video below:
  4. Samsung was known as one of the only two companies that could manufacture OLED panels and the company was the exclusive supplier to Apple for the iPhone X. Now, the company is facing increasing competition from other companies who want to supply to the Cupertino giant. © Apple In order to combat the competition, the South Korean giant is now looking to develop a brand new OLED panel. The company announced today that it is developing a new “unbreakable” OLED smartphone panel. This panel can essentially be used any gadget including “military devices”. That says more than enough on how durable it will actually be. The new panel is said to withstand repeated drops and even extreme temperatures. “The fortified plastic window is especially suitable for portable electronic devices, not only because of its unbreakable characteristics, but also because of its lightweight, transmissivity, and hardness, which are all very similar to glass,” said Ho Jung Kim, general manager of the Communication Team for Samsung Display Company. © YouTube The new OLED was tested by Underwriters Laboratories, the go-t0 testing companies for the U.S. Department's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). The tests results reported that the new screen is capable of withstanding drops from a distance of nearly four feet and in a total of 26 times in succession. Their test results showed the panel did not sustain any damage from either its front, sides, or edges. It was also dropped from nearly six feet and still managed to survive without any damage. Apparently, that is “significantly higher than the U.S. military standard.” The same test also yielded results in relation to extreme temperatures. The new screen was able to withstand heats up to 71 degrees Fahrenheit and a low temperature of -32 degrees Fahrenheit. © YouTube As of now, there is no word whether these durable OLED panels will be implemented in upcoming smartphones. Samsung also did not make it clear whether the panel is in the development stage or whether it is ready for mass manufacturing. What do you think about the new unbreakable screen by Samsung? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
  5. The Android vs iOS battle has been raging on for almost a decade now, and it's surely not going to end anytime soon. Every year, fans and users face a common dilemma, either get the latest iPhone running iOS or the latest Android from an OEM like Google and Samsung. While camera, design, processor, display, and unique features are the primary way of comparing these devices, one aspect that is hardly compared is the phone's modem speed. According to a new report from Ookla, the company behind the widely used SpeedTest.net service, you'd be surprised to know that integrated modems in phones also make a lot of difference. Who doesn't want a faster internet connection? Mobile phones have now become the number one tool to access the internet, everything is on the go. © Pexels Ookla has compiled data based on hundreds of thousands of user tests run on the iPhone 8, 8 Plus and X along with the S9 and Pixel 2. Th data shows that the S9 has an average download speed of 38.9 Mbps, Google Pixel 2 has an average speed of 34.4 Mbps while the iPhone X has an average of 29.7 Mbps. Even the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus fare lower than their Android counterparts at 29.4 Mbps and 28.6 Mbps, respectively. © Qualcomm The data further indicated that the iPhone X operated fastest on Verizon's network (USA) with an average of 31.5 Mbps while Sprint (USA) was the slowest at 25.1 Mbps. On the other hand, though, the Huawei Mate 10 Pro recorded the slowest speed with an average of 22 Mbps. The iPhone X sports an Intel XMM 7480 modem while its Android counterparts running on Snapdragon 845 SoC have Qualcomm's X20 modem. Ookla also found that Qualcomm's chipset had 53 percent faster download speeds than the phones running Intel's XMM 7480. © Tom's Hardware Apple uses a mix of components manufactured by both Qualcomm and Intel. The iPhone X sold via Verizon, Sprint and contract-free have Qualcomm's chipset, while the ones sold via AT&T and T-Mobile have Intel chipsets. While the two have differing performances, Apple's uses software to throttle the Qualcomm ones, so that both the variants perform uniformly. Recently, Samsung started rolling out Ads that take a hit on Apple and data speeds are one of the points being raised in the S9 vs iPhone X comparison. Source: Ookla / Bloomberg
  6. Samsung and Apple have a long history of rivalry, something that everyone is familiar with by now. The fight has intensified further in the last few years, as both the companies continue to try to pitch their products as the best. Samsung has gained a lot of ground and is the world's largest smartphone vendor, while Apple rules the premium segment. It is quite normal to see the two giants firing shots at each other, in courts as well as billboards. While the Note 9 is expected to debut soon, Apple's new iPhone lineup is also scheduled to launch in September. Right now, the S9 and the iPhone X are the flag bearers and often a benchmark for the industry. In a series of new video ads, Samsung is targeting the iPhone X and honestly, they've done a pretty good job. © BCCL In the recent 'Upgrade to Galaxy' Ads, the company has compared the iPhone X's LTE download speed with the S9. A shopper is seen asking about the best download speeds on the iPhone X and the 'Genius' store assistant says it is better than the iPhone 8. The shopper then says "The download speeds aren't faster than the Galaxy S9. But I thought it was the “smartphone of the future?" While Apple has a reputation of comparing newer generation iPhones with the older ones, the company is often accused of living in its own bubble. Samsung wants the consumers to look outside of the Apple ecosystem, and see how fast and better things are and can be moving. The second Ad punches Apple for not including the fastest available charger with the iPhone devices. The iPhone X does support fast charging, but a separate adapter needs to be purchased. On the other hand, the S9 ships with a fast charge ready adapter and the user does not need to shell out additional cash. The third Ad emphasizes on the S9+'s higher DxOMark score, 99 vs 97 of the iPhone X. While picture output is an extremely subjective matter, Samsung wants everyone to know that its products are benchmark leading. The fourth Ad is about the Dongle. A user asks if he can listen to music via his wired headphones while charging and the 'Genius' replies that a double dongle will be required. To begin with, the user will have to use a dongle for a 3.5mm jack because the iPhone X only sports a lightning port. Whatever you want to do, the dongle life ain't leaving you! While these jabs at Apple are technically correct, there are a lot of loopholes as well. The faster LTE coverage has been concluded by considering Ookla's SpeedTest, 20,000 tests have been conducted on the S9 while 350,000 tests have been conducted on the iPhone X. The difference in volume is more than enough to understand that the end result isn't very accurate.
  7. While there are already a lot of phones out there sporting 8GB RAM, Samsung is now taking the competition to another level by introducing industry's first 10-nanometer 8GB LPDDR5 DRAM. Samsung's components business has been thriving in the past few years and the company has increased its focus on research and development. Not just RAM, but its Exynos processors have often surpassed Qualcomm's latest chipsets in terms of speed. Last year, the company also started production of high-capacity eUFS enabled 512GB flash storage for mobile phones. © Samsung While DDR5 RAM is now pretty common in high-end laptops and machines, the LP in LPDDR5 stands for low-power and is meant for mobile computing devices like a smartphone that has a very small supply of voltage available. Coming back to the new unveiling, LPDDR5 will have the peak data transfer speed of 6.4 Mb/s, which is 1.5X faster than the speed of existing LPDDR4 that goes into phones like the Galaxy S9 and OnePlus 6. © Samsung The new RAM chip is also more power efficient, Samsung says it has doubled the number of memory subdivisions within a DRAM cell from 8 to 16, churning out faster performance and lower power consumption. "Based on its industry-leading bandwidth and power efficiency, the LPDDR5 will be able to power AI and machine learning applications, and will be UHD-compatible for mobile devices worldwide," a Samsung spokesperson said. © Samsung Samsung is offering the new LPDDR5 in two variants: a version with a 6,400 megabits per second (Mbps) data rate at 1.1 volts, and a 5,500 Mbps version at 1.05 volts. Almost all high-end phones, mobile devices, and even portable PCs these days use LPDDR4X or even just LPDDR4. Samsung has also highlighted the point that LPDDR5 RAM is 1.5 times faster than the current chipsets available out there. © MensXP In fact, Samsung has also developed higher-capacity standard DDR5 chips without low-power features, as well as even faster GDDR6 chips for graphics cards. Currently, the S9 houses 4GB of RAM (LPDDR4) and going by the current trend, we won't be surprised to see the S10 house a humungous 8GB RAM chip along with 5G-ready capabilities. As of now, the RAM modules have been tested at a prototype stage and will be mass produced at its Pyeongtaek factory in South Korea.
  8. Smartphone companies have always been battling amongst each other to innovate or create a product that may sway customers towards them. Some companies rely on offering competitive prices while others try to innovate. Innovation as a word is thrown around by presenters and company representatives, however, only a few are able to achieve that. Apple innovated with the introduction of Face ID while other companies simply copied the concept. © BCCL Having said that, there's a new player in town that is making waves more than any other smartphone company in the world. It could be argued whether this company is innovative or not, however, there is one thing for certain — creative. BBK electronics, the holding company behind companies like Oppo, VIVO, and OnePlus have been selling smartphones like hot cakes in India and China. The company shipped 39 million devices in 2016 alone, and is now looking to disrupt the smartphone market with clever features and creativity. How the in-display sensor works on the #vivox21. Been playing with the phone for a week and I'm surprised to see this new technology already in mass production. The phone is the first of its kind and will be available to buy from 29th May #vivox21 #smartphones #gadgets A post shared by Akshay Bhalla / Høax (@editorinchief) on May 29, 2018 at 1:39am PDT BBK electronics has managed to launch an under the display fingerprint sensor on its VIVO branded smartphones while being creative to solve common smartphone problems. In the age of full view displays, smartphones companies have found it very difficult to launch a product that is truly bezel-less. Apple launched the iPhone X with a notch while others simply copied the concept. © BCCL Oppo and Vivo managed to creatively tackle this issue with a creative idea. Smartphones were unable to achieve a truly bezel-less display, simply because companies could not figure out where to stick the selfie camera. Some tried to place it at the bottom while others just adopted the notch. Both Oppo and Vivo managed to hide the selfie camera in a very creative manner. The concept isn't new, but BBK electronics managed to hide the selfie camera by using mechanical moving parts. © YouTube Both companies i.e. VIVO and OPPO have showcased the 'NEX' and 'Find X' where both smartphones were able to achieve a full view display without any bezels. This was possible because of the selfie camera that would pop-out whenever needed. The Vivo NEX and Oppo 'Find X' both have Full View displays, no visible selfie camera, no notch and a near-non-existent top bezel. That's more than what Samsung and Apple can say about their products. What's impressive is that BBK electronics has managed to mass produce these concepts in no time and is already making its way to the Indian smartphone market. Sure it can be argued that Apple's Face ID is nearly perfect and doesn't require a feature like this on iPhones, however, we can confidently say that the competition is being damn creative.

  10. Samsung was first rumoured in June to be working on a 3D facial recognition technology for its next-generation Galaxy flagship phone. The same has now been corroborated by a patent filing that was approved in late Q2 2018 by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). This means, that the Samsung Galaxy S10 is all set to feature a Face ID-type facial recognition technology when it launches next year. According to the filing, the patent was applied in 2014 and covers 3D sensing for facial recognition. The biometric camera integrated into a mobile device will feature iris recognition that will be used to scan a user's iris via the front-facing camera. © Patently Mobile The technology may also support 3D time-of-flight sensor, night-vision camera, proximity sensing, structured light for 3D sensing, eye positioning and gaze tracking camera. Apple released the iPhone X last year that featured an infrared scanner in the notch. This scanner verified the face of the user using thousands of points across the face and acted as a much more secure medium of authentication than a camera-based Face Unlock. © Samsung On the other hand, Samsung has been relying on iris scanning as another method of authentication. Samsung integrated this method first in the Note 7 and since then, all the flagships including Note 8 and S9 have sported the authentication method. OPPO Find X and Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition are the two smartphones, apart from iPhone X, that come with 3D face recognition technology. The patent says it includes an extended depth of field (EDOF) lens, a bandpass filter to filter out ambient light, and an imaging sensor to convert an object's optical image into an electronic signal for processing. © 3D Facial Sensing on OPPO Find X / OPPO It still remains unclear as to when Samsung plans to introduce the biometric system to a mobile device. Though rumours suggest we will get a first glimpse of the new feature soon with the S10, that is scheduled to come in next year. Keep in mind, companies secure patents on a regular basis and it does not guarantee that the technology will make it to an end product. Samsung has been filing patents for a foldable smartphone for years and we expect the same to materialize soon. Source: Patently Apple
