The Galaxy S9 is yet to be unveiled and we already have a source on the internet that seems to know quite a bit about next year's flagship smartphone from Samsung, aka the Galaxy S10! While no information leaked this early can actually be taken very seriously, it might be worth noting that this piece of information comes from quite a credible source on the Chinese social networking website Weibo. Apparently, the S10 will sport a bigger battery and a chipset with AI capabilities.

 

 

The dedicated neural processing chip is actually quite an expected leak really, given that's where Apple and the rest of the smartphone OEMs are heading. It also reveals that the S10 will have UFS 3.0 memory, which would translate to lightning fast data transfer. The battery bit is quite interesting too as not only will it be bigger, but it will also be L-shaped to accommodate the Galaxy S10's form factor.  Other features according to the rumor include a next gen Infinity display with 93% screen-to-body ratio, support for 5G networks, better facial recognition and a pressure-sensitive display. Do you think this rumor has any credence or is it just another one of those hype posts?

Samsung had to deal with a huge blow last year as their soon-to-be head, Lee Jae-Yong got arrested with charges of bribery and assistance in corruption. It was almost inevitable as this scandal had then impeached the South Korean President herself, alongside some of the nation's most powerful figures. Nevertheless, the rulings of the court have now been overturned and Lee Jae-Yong's prison sentence has been suspended by the High Court, in answer to his appeal. It is to be noted that the Vice-Chairman of Samsung continued to deny all charges held against him and the High Court found him only guilty of "passive compliance to political power."


It is expected that Lee Jae-Yong will have to defend his case once again at the Supreme Court, since the ones that prosecuted the billionaire are probably going to take that final step. Nevertheless, as of this moment, Yong is back and will probably resume his position at Samsung once again for the time being.

The rear camera and the fingerprint scanner which will be accompanying the Galaxy S9 has been revealed online a few hours ago, confirming the rumor that the Galaxy S9 will indeed be sporting just one camera at its unworthy back... The dual cameras will be reserved for the more premium Galaxy S9+. Now the question is, can you really blame anyone anymore when they blame Samsung for following in the footsteps of Apple? One would think that they would do the consumers a favor and endow both the devices with similar specs like every year, but that is not going to happen anymore it seems.



The Fingerprint scanner doesn't reveal much except the fact which we all knew anyway; Samsun has not yet been able to perfect their under-the-display fingerprint scanner. Let's just hope that like all the rumors suggest, Samsung at least decides to put the fingerprint scanner at a better location than they did last year with the Galaxy S8, S8+ and the Note 8.

Earlier reports had suggested that the Korean giant was entering the field of cryptocurrency with dedicated mining machines and today, that news has been confirmed. A Samsung spokesperson told TechCrunch that the company's foundry business is concentrating on building chips for mining cryptocurrencies specifically. However, the representative was also very secretive about the whole thing and declined to comment any further on the matter. It looks like all those rumors about Samsung making application-specific integrated circuit chips (ASIC) for dedicated mining machines were indeed true.


The decision isn't really surprising, given how popular a business cryptocurrency mining has become nowadays. In fact, it's one of the main reasons as to why graphics card prices have soared sky-high and even when you are willing to pay that price, it's hard to find one! ASIC chips on the other hand are the future of mining bitcoins. They are more efficient in mining than gaming GPUs simply because they are built specifically for one purpose, which is to compute hashes. Given that the ASIC-powered mining rigs are also more power-efficient than a multi-GPU unit, Samsung has a chance to shape the future of cryptocurrency mining here.

We know that the twin cameras on the upcoming Galaxy S9 (or maybe the S9+ only) are going to be pretty amazing, especially if the rumoured f/1.5 aperture turns out to be a reality, but will it sport the rumoured 1,000fps video recording as well? Keep in mind that it's an old rumor that had been circulating for a while now and it just got recent attention after the famous Chinese tipster Ice Universe (@Universeice) stated the same earlier.


As of now, the only smartphone camera that comes even close to producing 1,000fps is on the Sony Xperia XZ Premium (960fps). Not that Samsung cannot do it of course, but we will have to wait a bit longer to get confirmation. In case you do not know already, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ will be unveiled at the MWC 2018 in Barcelona, on the 25th of February.
