5x-optical-zoom-samsung-smartphone


It looks like a very select number of upcoming smartphones from Samsung may have a brand new camera module in 2019 itself. It is now official, because Samsung Electro-Mechanics has just confirmed and publicly announced that a new camera module with up to 5x optical zoom is currently in mass manufacturing.


This is really great news for Samsung fans because in the last two years, they have been left behind by the competition significantly in terms of both camera performance, as well as camera features. The Galaxy S10+ might have capable cameras, but they pale in front of the Huawei P30 Pro and even the single lens performance of the aging Google Pixel 3.


The real question is though, will it be the Note 10 that will see this ultra-thin 5mm camera module being adopted like we are all expecting, or will Samsung implement it in a brand new series, as hinted by leakster @UniverseIce on twitter?

Apparently, the leakster has inside info that has led him to believe, Samsung is going to unveil something even more innovative than the Galaxy Fold, later in the year!

s10-plus-olympic-edition-released


Samsung has always been enthusiastic about the Olympics, given their partnership with the largest athletic event on the planet. Although the upcoming 2020 Olympic Games are more than a year away at this point, the smartphone giant has already released a Galaxy S10+ Olympic Games Edition in Japan.


Personally, I never understood the gimmicks here, especially since the "Olympic Editions" by Samsung never has had anything too special about them unfortunately. On top of that, the early release makes no real sense, given that by the time the Olympics actually begin in Tokyo, the S11+ (or whatever they choose to call it) will already be out and about.


Well, if you fancy having a logo of the Olympics imprinted on the back of your smartphone for an even more premium price than what the regular S10+ costs, we are sure Samsung will also release it in the US at some point.

galaxy-s10-beats-oneplus


After a short stint on the throne, OnePlus has now been dethroned by Samsung again, as the Korean giant managed to regain their number one status in the world's second largest smartphone market.


Now, Samsung never really lost its position as the supreme smartphone manufacturer as far as over all sales was concerned, but it did temporarily lose the throne to OnePlus, as far in the premium sector of the Indian smartphone market.


For the last three-quarters (Q2, 2018 - Q4, 2018) OnePlus led the smartphone sales figures in the premium segment, but according to a study by Counterpoint, Samsung is now back on top again.


This isn't exactly bad news for OnePlus mind you, but it is good news for Samsung nonetheless. The thing is, while this does again put Samsung on top of the market in the premium segment, we have to keep in mind that OnePlus has not released any new phones in 2019, while Samsung has launched the Galaxy S10 series with three separate phones this time around!


Once the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro is released though, the tables could turn again by the end of Q2, 2019. We will just have to wait and see about that one, but for now, Samsung is back on top in India.

fold

 

After years of hype and teasing of a foldable device, Samsung has done it. Samsung is ready to let us have some hands-on experience with the Galaxy Fold. If you are interested in spending two grand that Samsung is asking for the Galaxy Fold, you can have it after April 24. You probably wondering what it looks like and even if it has something that makes it worth the money. Preorders are already open in the U.S. This phone isn't cheap and definitely not for everyone. The price tag is approximately $2,000. It is actually $1,980. You are really getting two phones at this price.

 

The first thing people would like to know about with this 7.3" display is whether the crease is for real. Would it be visible? Would it damage the visual experience on this phone or not? The first impression is - yes, it is real. It is visible but not really too obstructive. It is kind of like reading a book that has a folded page. It is not going to stop you from getting the information you need. The other concern people have is that it doesn't close completely and there is definitely a noticeable gap. But if you try to slide a business card inside the phone, you will notice that it won't let you as the phone does close at the ends of the display. The phone when the fold is held together by pretty strong magnets.

 

There is a fingerprint sensor at the side of the phone but also is the Bixby button. The phone is almost double the size of Galaxy s10 Plus. But then fold it, and it's a lot skinnier but of the same height. The display is made of an advanced composite polymer material but it's not glass so that it can bend. It is not much different from the glass. It may be a little less bright and stunning but you won't feel any difference when it comes to screen clarity. There is also a USB-C charging port at the bottom although you will notice there is no headphone jack anymore. On the side, there are other buttons like power, the volume. There is a triple camera system on the back side. It is similar to Galaxy S10, both at 12MP, wide angle and telephoto. If you fold it, the screen will be of the 4.6-inch screen. Because of the tiny screen, you may feel it difficult to use, in that case, you can open the phone to get a huge 7.3-inch screen.

 

The crease isn't much obvious when you are watching something with a dark screen but it is a little obvious with light color or white background. So this is where the crease gets more annoying. The full-screen selfie is great when the phone is open. One of the biggest use of the big screen is having multiple apps opened at a time. You can open 3 apps at a time and work like a pro. These apps are resizable but having multiple apps opened there is not much space being left out for resizing. This is powered by dual battery setup and they add up to about 4,000mAh on the battery.
