As per a report that got out of South Korea, Samsung is on its way to make a few new features available in the affordable smartphones.


We're discussing about the fingerprint sensor and the support for Samsung Pay along with NFC. A source informed that Samsung is planning to deploy fingerprint sensors in budget smartphone models, although we're not quite sure what kind of smartphones would fall into the "budget" segment.


It seems that Samsung is getting affected by the Chinese makers, who include fingerprint scanners in lower to medium range devices. Moreover, at the same price point Chinese makers offer more features than Samsung. The tech giant is taking these steps to bolster its presence in the emerging markets. Currently Samsung is holding the top spot in 14 out of 15 emerging smartphone markets.


Unfortunately Samsung has not yet given any particular time frame to make these features available in the budget segment. As per speculations, Samsung Pay will be available in low and medium range smartphones in the first half of 2016. This will be rolled out for the company's Android devices. Analysts are still divided in their opinions of whether its Tizen smartphone will also have support for the payment system. Customers can expect access to some high-end Tizen offerings next year.

Galaxy S6 has been considered prettier in comparison to its earlier versions because of the thin, sleek and shiny design. But ironically these are the features which make this phone not suitable for usage in harsh conditions like constructions or mining. Samsung took note of this and came up with a new variant with similar hardware configuration along with design changes.


So we have the Galaxy S6 Active, a rough and tough version of the phone that comes with a built-in case. Although it is not looking as good as the S6, but the phone body has a better build quality and it can sustain in bumpy conditions. The sad part is that the updates are rather slow and it is getting the upgrade to Android 5.1.1 quite late.


Along with the latest version of Android Lollipop, Samsung Pay will also be shipped to the device. The update with build number G890AUCU3BOJE has been released as an OTA, and it will be rolled out in phases, so it might take a few days before the users get a notification to update the software. To update the device manually you can always go to Settings » System » About device » Software and check for the update.

Unlike Apple Pay or Android Pay, the Samsung Pay does not require installation of any additional equipment supporting NFC at the point-of-sale (POS) to complete payment successfully.


The store executives with old POS equipments will be surprised in your next visit finding the Samsung Pay works perfectly in collecting payment from you.


Similar encounters have inspired the South Korean giant to make a new video commercial for its new payment feature that is made available across its Galaxy handsets.


In the video non-fancy store executives are seen getting surprised with the successful transaction through old POS equipments that does not supports NFC, the tech feature that is required while making payment through Apple Pay or Android Pay.


Samsung uses a unique technology called MST in its payment feature that mimics debit and credit card swipes, and this facilitates paying at any store with ease that accepts card. This is the reason the newly launched Samsung Pay has been more successful than the rivals.


Watch the embedded commercial video in this post and share your own views with fellow readers whether you managed surprising any store executive by making payment through Samsung Pay-compatible Galaxy smartphone. Use the below given comment box.



Samsung Microsoft

 

Samsung has issued a court filing regarding its collaboration with Microsoft on Windows Phone and states that it refuses to fulfill its end of the deal as it now sees the software giant as a direct competitor. The business collaboration agreement between the two companies sees Samsung pay Microsoft north of $1 billion in patent royalties and $6.9 million interest due to payment delays. Microsoft took action in early August in an attempt to collect the cash.

 

However, that's unlikely to happen if the New York federal court, where the filing is made, decides in favor of Samsung. The company says that because of the Nokia acquisition, Microsoft violated its 2011 deal with Samsung. According to the deal, Samsung had to pay Microsoft royalties in exchange for a patent license on its Android smartphones.

 

"The agreements, now between competitors, invite charges of collusion," Samsung said in the filing. However, Microsoft won't give up and is "confident" in the strength of its case. We'll continue to cover the development of the court case between the two companies and inform you if Microsoft will get its patent licensing fees or if Samsung will save $1 billion.

Samsung

 

A New Patent war for Samsung again as the Korean Company is ordered to pay $15.7 million in the latest dispute. The company has been found guilty on infringing the patents of company Rembrandt Wireless Technologies LP by the Harrison County federal jury.

 

The two patents that Samsung has been found guilty on infringing relate to Bluetooth technology. More specifically the patent duo relates to a "system and method of communication using at least two modulation methods." The Korean company has been making, selling, using and offering for sale Bluetooth EDR (Enhanced Data Rate) devices and the aforementioned technology is in the core of them.

Ending all rumors and speculations, Samsung has indirectly confirmed the existence of two things yesterday. The first is of course Bixby; the digital AI based voice assistant, which will presumably debut with the Galaxy S8. Samsung Pay Mini is the second premature revelation that was made, confirming the existence of the independent online payment service.


As you can probably guess, Samsung Pay Mini is a minimalistic version of Samsung Pay. It can only be used to make payments via the internet on websites, unlike its bigger brother Samsung Pay, which has a much larger scope in that department. The voice assistant Bixby will work in tandem with the payment service to presumably enable voice-based financial transactions.



Even though we are stating that these have been confirmed by Samsung themselves, they are not yet "official" in the true sense of the term. The "confirmations" were gathered from the Samsung Pay Beta page on the company's own website, after these two were mentioned in certain references. We are excited to see Bixby in action and check out at least some of what the AI assistant can do when Samsung (reportedly) reveals the S8 at the MWC Barcelona in February.

A Samsung employee who is only known by his surname "Lee" at the moment, apparently was in a bad gambling debt which amounted to somewhere around $800,000! Just as any other logical person would handle a debt of that size, he decided to steal 8,474 Samsung mobile phones (which are worth a total of $711,000) from Samsung's head office in Suwon, Gyeonggi. If you have not caught on to my sarcasm yet, then let me affirm that it is indeed sarcasm and stealing from your employer or anyone else is definitely not the logical solution to any problem!


The disabled man had apparently started stealing test units meant for developers from way back in the December of 2014. In fact his operation was active till November last year; a timeframe in which he managed to steal an astounding 8,474 Samsung test units. Lee used to pawn these stolen smartphones via a used phone reseller and before long, these handsets, which were never even meant to be on sale, were being sold and used in Vietnam. As Samsung caught a whiff of the con job going on here, the matter was reported to the police. After months of investigation, Lee has finally been found and charged. Although he is clearly a reckless gambler and a thief of massive proportions, one cannot help but be amazed at the efficiency with he had run the con job for all these years without ever being caught once.

Finally the verdict is in - the long standing case between Apple and Samsung has come to an end and both of the tech giants have issued a joint statement to the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California on Thursday, informing that Samsung has agreed to pay Apple $548 million over the patent violation case. The amount is same as that of the final settlement amount ordered by the courts, but way below the $1 billion plus damage Apple was initially awarded in 2012 and further less than $2.75 billion the company had planned to get over the infringement case.


Interesting thing to note here is that, the statement given by Samsung also says the following: "Samsung further reserves all rights to reclaim or obtain reimbursement of any judgment amounts paid by Samsung to any entity in the event the partial judgment is reversed, modified, vacated or set aside on appeal or otherwise". We're not absolutely sure what factors might help Samsung to get a "reimbursement" from Apple, and Apple looks a bit perplexed as well, because it claims Samsung has no right to get any kind of reimbursement. Here is the statement given by the iconic American company: "Apple disputes Samsung's asserted rights to reimbursement".
