UFS

 

Korean newspaper ETNews has outed a report citing a Samsung insider, who claims the company is going to use a next-gen NAND flash storage in the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S6. The storage technology in question is called UFS 2.0, which stands for Universal Flash Storage.

 

UFS can reach SSD-like transfer speeds, but is cheap to manufacture like eMMC memory chips. In fact, it's three times faster than eMMC memory with a transfer speed of up to 1.2GB/s. Power consumption is lower than eMMC storage, which won't lead to battery drains or overheating. Recent UFS 2.0 technology development has lead to half the power consumption of eMMC 5.0, the source says.

The standard is established under the Joint Electron Device Engineering Council (JEDEC) initiative by Samsung, Nokia and Micron in 2007. Toshiba and SK Hynix are also involved in the development of the UFS 2.0 memory. Samsung is expected to start mass producing the new NAND flash storage in the coming weeks.

 

"UFS is an important element for our smart phone business next year. We will start the application centering on flagship smart phones, However, we cannot disclose any details because the time of a new smart phone release next year and specifications of this new model have not been finalized." - Source Inside Samsung

Galaxy S6

 


Samsung is working on the Galaxy S6 codenamed "Project Zero" to make a complete design overhaul to its upcoming flagship. An analyst tipped how Samsung could utilize its YOUM brand of flexible displays for the S6, and have it curved to the sides, just like the Galaxy Note Edge, but on both right and left sides this time.

 

Samsung Galaxy S6 to have a dual-edged flexible display panel, tips screen analyst Jerry Kang, a senior analyst at IHD Technology, has mentioned at the IHS Display Analyst conference on Thursday, that "the Galaxy S6 to be released next year will feature a dual-edged screen which is curved on the right and left sides." In fact, the source mentions that this has been the initial Note Edge concept all along, but Samsung decided to slope the screen to the right only, after all.

 

S6

 

An early look at the Galaxy S6 Project Zero undertaking pegs it as having a Quad HD display, Snapdragon 810 processor, a 16 MP or 20 MP rear camera with optical image stabilization, and an upgraded 5 MP front-facing shooter. In fact, the flexible display rumor about the Galaxy S6 has been bandied about before, and it also included the Note 5 in the whisper, so next year might be when Samsung's bendy screens really take off in production volumes.

Galaxy Note 5


Samsung has been teasing its development of a 4K AMOLED display for a long time now, but now a new piece of information suggests the first phone to brag with it is the Galaxy Note 5.

 

According to a new Samsung display roadmap, a Samsung 4K AMOLED screen is 6" in diagonal and packs a pixel density of 743ppi is coming on 2015.

 

S4

 

This information is not confirmed yet, it's very early to say, but is highly likely for Samsung to use this display on its upcoming Phablet. The Galaxy Note family of smartphones grow ever so larger in terms of display, so a 6" would be a logical evolutionary step for the Galaxy Note 5.

 

Moreover, recent rumors suggest that Galaxy Note 5 will be powered by an Exynos 7420 Octa-core chipset, which would have four Cortex-A57 cores + four Cortex-A53.

Galaxy S6

 

Latest Reports suggests that Samsung is working on designing the Galaxy S6 from scratch, the team gave the S6 a codename "Project Zero", and some unnamed "insiders" have allegedly come forward and shared a few of its specs.

 

The screen resolution will be QHD (2560x1440), just like that of the Note 4, which is hardly a surprise. The exact display size is still a mystery, though, possibly because Samsung execs haven't yet decided on it.

 

The rear camera will apparently be borrowed from the Galaxy Note 4 too, being a Sony-made IMX240. What's still up for debate over at Samsung HQ is whether to go for a 16 MP module or a 20 MP one. In either case, hopefully it will come with optical image stabilization.

 

Galaxy S6

 

The S6 will pack a selfie snapper 5 MP front camera, matching the sensors in the recently unveiled Galaxy A series. Storage-wise, Samsung seems ready to move to 32GB as the new base level so no more 16GB model. Handsets with 64 or 128GB built-in storage will also be offered, and we assume the microSD expansion will stick around too.

 

In terms of chipset, the Galaxy S6 will be powered by an Exynos 7420, which is on track to be the company's first SoC with active 64-bit support. The Exynos 5433 in the Galaxy Note 4 is also technically 64-bit, but Samsung has only enabled 32-bit support for it until now. That might have something to do with the fact that Android will only work with 64-bit chipsets starting with version 5.0 Lollipop. Galaxy S6 is expected Early Next year.

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.
