exynos-9820


The Huawei 7nm HiSilicon Kirin 980 is the current champion of Android SoCs, but it looks like the latest Exynos chip is all ready to challenge it. While that may or may not happen, at least there is no doubt about the fact that the 8nm Exynos 9820 is going to be significantly more powerful than the current gen Exynos 9810. In fact, it will even be able to support 8K video recording, which is something that may not have much use as of now, but it definitely highlights the prowess of the upcoming SoC. Check out some of the highlighted features of the chip below, as showcased by Samsung during the unveiling earlier.


·        Octa-core processor with 2 high-power custom cores, 2 medium power Cortex-A75 cores and 4 low power Cortex A55 cores


·        15% increase in multi-core performance and 20% increase in single-core performance, as compared to the Exynos 9810


·        40% better power-efficiency, as compared to the Exynos 9810


·        8nm process, dedicated neural processing unit (AI) and UFS 2.1 and 3.0 support


·        No support for 5G


·        Support for five cameras in total and 8K video recording


This is good news for those that are waiting for the Galaxy S10 to upgrade, especially since it all but confirms the fact that there will indeed be three rear cameras and two front cameras on the Galaxy S10+ in 2019.

o-infinity-display


Samsung had so far avoided the hated Notch, but it looks like they are all set to adopt it, albeit in their own adaptation of it. If the latest leak by Evan Blass is to be believed then the Galaxy S10 will sport a new kind of Infinity display that they are calling "O-Infinity." As you can probably guess, the "O" likely stands for the O shaped notch which Samsung is rumored to be going for in all likelihood. Evan Blass does have a solid reputation for sending out reliable leaks, so there might be some credit to this one after all, although, it is a bit early for leaks about the Galaxy S10.


His leak also stated that the S10 will have three rear cameras (standard, telephoto and wide-angle), an in-display fingerprint scanner and Samsung's new One UI, powered by Android Pie. Unfortunately, if the punch-hole notch turns out to be true, it also means that the foldable smartphone, aka the Galaxy X won't be the Galaxy S10, like a lot of us were hoping for. We will let you know as soon as we find out more about this.

After years of speculations, rumors, leaks and anticipation, the Korean giant has finally provided a look at their first foldable smartphone prototype during the SDC, as expected. Google is already developing apps for the foldable design and for all intents and purposes, this is what the next step in the evolution of smartphones is going to be. Take a look at the following points to know everything that was revealed during the conference and press meet.



Galaxy X or Galaxy F?

 

While nothing was mentioned regarding the name of the device, it's probably going to be named Galaxy X, which will likely replace the current-gen Galaxy S9 on the eve of the flagship line-up's tenth anniversary next year.


The Foldable Display

 

There will possibly be the same 4.5-inch/7.3-inch form factor in the final device as well. In case you are not clear on that, consider it to be an in-folding device (Infinity Flex Display) that has one external 4.5-inch display, which will be active while the phone is closed and you want it to be portable. The main display inside is a massive, foldable panel (7.3-inch) that turns the phone into a small tablet, when required. As Samsung has mentioned that there will be support for three separate apps at the same time, it is probable that the 7.3-inch display will be able to function as two separate ones by separating from the middle (the folding line).


Availability

 

Availability of the phone wasn't confirmed but Samsung did mention that they will go into mass production in the coming months, which means that we will most likely see the device in 2019, which is especially likely if this technology is meant to be used in the Galaxy S10 (likely to be called Galaxy X).


Price


This is anybody's guess really at this point, but expect nothing short of a premium price tag on the device when it comes out and that price tag will most certainly be at least $1,200 - $1,500.

Samsung was beaten to the punch by the Rouyu FlexiPai which was showcased just a week ago, but the FlexiPai sported an out-folding design while the prototype by Samsung is clearly an in-folding phone. The likes of LG, Lenovo, Xiaomi, Huawei and even Microsoft are also working on bringing flexible displays to the market in 2019, so it does look like the next big step in display tech evolution since the flat-screen revolution is finally here.

samsung-galaxy-f-foldable-phone


Samsung fans have been waiting for a foldable smartphone from the tech giant for years now and after years of false hopes, it does look like Samsung is finally ready to showcase its foldable smartphone in just a few more days. The latest hint which all but confirms the rumors shows a Samsung logo which is folding over itself in the same manner that Samsung's rumored wallet phone is supposed to. Even if Samsung doesn't launch the foldable phone during the SDC 2018 on November 7, we are almost certain that they will definitely showcase it nonetheless.

As per reliable sources, the in-folding wallet phone, also known as Galaxy F by the fans will be sporting a 7.3-inch foldable OLED display, as well an external 4.6-inch OLED display which will serve as a compact phone when folded. While this would most certainly be a revolutionary design, it remains to be seen how much the Korean giant decides to ask for this model on its release, which is expected to happen in early 2019.
