Andy Rubin is one of the major names associated with the initial development of the Android OS and he even handled the OS for Google, before he left the company in 2014. After leaving Google, Andy Rubin started a company named Playground Global, which acted as a tech incubator. According to recent reports, he is associated in the development of an upcoming high-end smartphone. His second company, named Essential Products Inc. will be launching the smartphone in question, along with "a suite of consumer hardware products, including ones for the mobile and smart home."


Although much isn't revealed about this surprise smartphone in the making, but the report does mention that it will sport a bezel-less display, as well as a modular design similar to what we saw with the Moto Z or the LG G5. The magnetic connector used for the modularity is said to be propriety, although selective third party enhancements will be supported. A spherical high-resolution 360-degree camera will be one of the first modular upgrade options for the phone, developed by Essential Products themselves.


Other specifications that we know of include a ceramic back, a metal frame, a 5.7-inch or bigger pressure sensitive edgeless display and a release date that's set somewhere near the middle of the year. Did this get you interested or do you think it will be "just another smartphone?"

Samsung is about to begin mass production of the Galaxy Note 7 and we are not yet sure whether there will just be an Edge variant or a regular flat variant will be made available as well. After the recent leak which showed a Samsung teaser before its release we can be sure about two things. Firstly, the next Note will indeed be called the Note 7 instead of Note 6, and secondly, there will be an Edge variant for sure. If you are in any doubt, check the image below to find the number "7" hidden in the picture and also read the accompanying text, "write on the edge of something great."



The latest news however, suggests that Samsung is also working on a version of the Note 7 that will sport a more regular, flat display. We came to this conclusion after finding out that the model number SM-N930F has been seen on the Samsung website. Considering that the Note 5 had the model number SM-N920, N930 is without a doubt, the upcoming Note 7's model number. Since all previous leaks and rumors had pointed out that the Note 7 Edge will sport the model number SM-N935G, the conclusion was obvious.



There are also contrasting rumors and theories all around; one such theory predicts that there will be just one variant of the next Note in 2016 to keep things clean and simple. However, the latest listing on Samsung's own website seems to contradict that theory. We will soon find out more in the coming weeks. Stay tuned for more on the Samsung Galaxy Note 7/Note 7 Edge.

Samsung 11K display

 

Currently, The highest resolution display in the Smartphones Market is the Quad-HD with Pixel density up to (500 - 700ppi) at max. Samsung is looking on breaking this record once and for all...

 

According to a confirmed reports from Korea, Samsung partnered with 13 companies and the South Korean government to develop the World's first 11K mobile display with a pixel density of 2250ppi and a resolution of (11264 x 8448), which takes the Smartphone displays to an Insane new level of clarity.

 

11K

 

This 11K display needs a super GPU to handle this kind of High-res Graphics. The Korean giant is going to invest $26.5 million into the R&D of this new 11K display. According to the Executive Director of Samsung Display, this might look like "over specification", but the breakthrough would help the Korean industry in the future.

 

Samsung's goal with this is to implement a "3D effect". Details are scarce, but the way Korean outlet ETNews puts it, such a gloriously high-resolution screen is able to simulate the effect of a 3D screen through some kind of optical illusion. This 11K display panel will be available by 2018 in the company's flagships.

After forming the GVRA with Sony, Acer, Facebook, HTC and Google, Samsung is reportedly looking to launch its first ever AR (augmented reality) headset. Additionally, the company is also in the process of bringing forth the next Gear VR headset as well. Apparently, it was vice-president Sung-Hoon Hong himself who had revealed the aforementioned information at the Virtual Reality Summit in San Diego.


"Samsung's hologram technology is really, really realistic. It looks really touchable," - Sung-Hoon Hong.


In more of what he said at the summit, it might have been indicated that the next Gear VR headset is going to debut at the Mobile World Congress in February, 2017. Considering that it was only a few months back that Samsung had launched the last Gear VR, along with the disastrous Galaxy Note 7, we suggest that you take this news with a pinch of salt.


If you are excited about the augmented reality project, the report mentions that Samsung is planning to target businesses with this upcoming headset, rather than direct consumers. Even then, it is too early in the day to predict where and in which way the AR project will be heading in the future. A startup named Magic Leap was mentioned by Hoon according to the report and speculations suggest that this has something to do with the AR project in question here.

Samsung has just patented technology which is suggesting that the Korean giant might be on the verge of developing a revolutionary form of security measure. Title as ‘Real Time Authentication Based on Blood Flow Parameters,' the patent was filed way back in July, 2016 but it got approved just recently.


This technology will allow users to authenticate themselves on their smartphones and smartwatches on the basis of their blood flow pattern. On smartphones, it would be detected from the fingers, not unlike how it happens when we use fingerprint scanners, but on smartwatches, the wrist on which the smartwatch is worn will be enough.


Apparently, the arterial conduction paths of each human being are unique and therefore, safety is assured alongside the convenience of not having to use a fingerprint scanner on a smartwatch. To be honest, it sounds wonderful, but that doesn't necessarily mean that this technology will ever see the light of day. We will know soon enough I guess.
