Introducing Bixby Routines

Samsung is adding something very cool called the Bixby routines. It’s touchless, and it studies you, and it actually recommends you a special routine that you do every time. 

So how does it work? The moment you enter the car and turn it on and connect to the Bluetooth, it will automatically start counting on your actions. 

Driving, it notices it, it launches a navigation, and perhaps if you had it set up, a music player, then a music will come up too. 

This is what we call Bixby routines. Basically 3-14 days, it will study your habit, how you interact with your phone, and then, based on those habits, it will recommend you a routine.

For instance, let’s assume that you go to work. Automatically, once you arrive to work, the sound mode will go to mute, and Wi-Fi will be turned on to connect to your Wi-Fi intranet for your workplaces. 

Such as this, if you do something continuously over time, this will study your habit and recommend you do a setup for a routine. And, once you set it up, you don’t have to activate it yourself. 

It will automatically not suggest, it will automatically turn it on for you. So that summarize the whole concept of intelligence. 

And last but not least Bixby routines, will recommend a very unique routines customized for your own needs.

Samsung Industry’s First 1TB Embedded Universal Flash Storage

Samsung Electronics, the world leader in advanced memory technology, today announced that it has begun mass producing the industry’s first one-terabyte (TB) embedded Universal Flash Storage (eUFS) 2.1, for use in next-generation mobile applications. Just four years after introducing the first UFS solution, the 128-gigabyte (GB) eUFS, Samsung has passed the much-anticipated terabyte threshold in smartphone storage. Smartphone enthusiasts will soon be able to enjoy storage capacity comparable to a premium notebook PC, without having to pair their phones with additional memory cards.

“The 1TB eUFS is expected to play a critical role in bringing a more notebook-like user experience to the next generation of mobile devices,” said Cheol Choi, executive vice president of Memory Sales & Marketing at Samsung Electronics. “What’s more, Samsung is committed to assuring the most reliable supply chain and adequate production quantities to support the timely launches of upcoming flagship smartphones in accelerating growth of the global mobile market.”

Within the same package size (11.5mm x 13.0mm), the 1TB eUFS solution doubles the capacity of the previous 512GB version by combining 16 stacked layers of Samsung’s most advanced 512-gigabit (Gb) V-NAND flash memory and a newly developed proprietary controller. Smartphone users will now be able to store 260 10-minute videos in 4K UHD (3840×2160) format, whereas the 64GB eUFS widely used in many current high-end smartphones is capable of storing 13 videos of the same size.

The 1TB eUFS also possesses exceptional speed, allowing users to transfer large amounts of multimedia content in significantly reduced time. At up to 1,000 megabytes per second (MB/s), the new eUFS features approximately twice the sequential read speed of a typical 2.5-inch SATA solid state drive (SSD). This means that 5GB-sized full HD videos can be offloaded to an NVMe SSD in as fast as five seconds, which is 10 times the speed of a typical microSD card. Furthermore, the random read speed has increased by up to 38 percent over the 512GB version, clocking in at up to 58,000 IOPS. Random writes are 500 times faster than a high-performance microSD card (100 IOPS), coming in at up to 50,000 IOPS. The random speeds allow for high-speed continuous shooting at 960 frames per second and will enable smartphone users to take full advantage of the multi-camera capabilities in today and tomorrow’s flagship models.

Samsung plans to expand the production of its fifth-generation 512Gb V-NAND at its Pyeongtaek plant in Korea throughout the first half of 2019 to fully address the anticipated strong demand for the 1TB eUFS from mobile device manufacturers around the world.

one UI is here for galaxy note9

Multiple phones show how One UI screens change the Galaxy interface to make it easier for users to focus. The One UI home screen with colorful icons. The One UI phone keypad, photo gallery, calculator, and calendar applications onscreen. Samsung Notes, Night Mode, email inbox, and search function applications onscreen.
Galaxy Note9 users in Malaysia take note, the latest firmware update for your device is now available for download. The update is a big deal because it brings with it Samsung’s all-new One UI interface along with Android 9 Pie to the Galaxy Note 9.

Once you update your Galaxy Note 9 to the stable Android Pie update, which is about 1.6GB in size, you will instantly notice a redesign UI. Some of the app icons get a makeover and look really fresh if you have been growing tired of the old icons. They look more colourful now, including the icons in the Settings menu.

Since One UI is based on Android Pie, the quick setting panel now shows blue-coloured buttons. But what I probably love the most is the system-wide Dark mode which I enabled instantly in Settings > Display > Night Mode. Dark mode nicely turns the background in most Samsung apps totally black, which not only comforts the eyes but also helps conserve battery life as well. Eventually, Samsung will allow you to configure Dark mode to switch on automatically at night.
Woman’s left hand holds a phone and naturally interacts with the One UI messaging application using just her thumb.

The One UI interface is being developed for the upcoming Galaxy S series of devices and Samsung is making the new experience available for Note 9 users as well as to other Samsung devices as part of the Android 9 Pie update, this includes the Note 8, Galaxy S8, Note FE and Galaxy A8, among others.

As I mentioned, One UI is designed to make it easy to use a large device with one hand by pushing content that you use within reach. The idea is pretty simple and makes so much sense - look at the top half and interact with the bottom half. This new design can be seen on all Samsung apps and even in the quick settings panel. Swipe down the panel twice and all the quick setting buttons will drop to the bottom half of the display.

The moment you open the Settings menu, for example, you will notice the top half blank with just the word "Setting" plastered in a large font. Sure, you're left with a lot of blank space, but that's really okay. In fact it makes it look cleaner and less cluttered. The bottom half is where the actual options are so you can easily reach them without having to use both your hands.

In addition to One UI, the Android Pie update brings a few other goodies as well like Adaptive Battery which is a feature that learns your usage patterns and adapts the device’s power usage and battery management accordingly. One UI also comes with the option to set a systems-wide night mode where the background and most design elements of the interface is presented in a dark colour to further save battery.

Galaxy M20, A budget phone that packs a punch

Samsung will be introducing an online exclusive budget mobile device. This smartphone packs a punch in battery size which sits at 5,000mAh.

Samsung video featuring foldable phone

It seems that is a slight tease on the full brand video from Samsung which shows a short glimpse of our future, foldable phones are back. 

It shows a device open from a closed position. Device bezel also looks pretty thin. In addition to showing the ability to open, Will it be officially announced during unpacked? Only time will tell...

What does the future hold? Back in the 1950s, Doris Day answered that question with a simple lyric: “Que será, será, whatever will be, will be.” Her cheerful brand of fatalism encouraged a generation to let go of their worries and let the future unfold as it may. As the world now enters a new era of uncertainty, Samsung refuses to accept those laissez-faire lyrics with a promise to empower people to create their own future.

In the spirit of this approach, Samsung is launching its own brand campaign to kick off a year that will both celebrate the 10th anniversary of Galaxy smartphones and set the foundation for the next decade of new, innovative and groundbreaking products.

The campaign flips the carefree lyrics of the classic song on its head by juxtaposing them with Samsung’s bold leadership stance: What we create today empowers you to create the future. The campaign builds on Samsung’s “Do What You Can’t” philosophy in a video that highlights potential breakthrough technologies – including seamless multi-device experiences, artificial intelligence, and radical new displays – and teases Samsung’s 5G products and foldable display technology to be launched later this year.

Whether you’re an entrepreneur, fashion designer or mobile gamer, Samsung is blazing the trail for change by bringing innovation to a wide variety of industries. Check out the video below to see how Samsung is reshaping the future for its users.

Samsung Next Galaxy: New Images, Blockchain Keystore for Bitcoin and Co.

Does anyone remember Bitcoin, Ethereum and Co.? Crypto Currencies, which 2018 many threw their money outright, which was burned prominently in the crash of Blockchain from the hype cycle. A theme that dominated in 2017 and 2018, but is now more of a norm.
HTC brought a special blockchain edition of a flagship and now Samsung will soon bring the next Galaxy flagship with a special application for the cryptocurrency.
That such a special edition of the mobile device or at least a special application comes for it - as a gift. But the pictures on which this is to be seen, are exciting. Here you can see the device in action - with a simple front camera, without another sensor for a 3D face recognition.

On the side note, the camera hole is remarkably large, the frame is relatively narrow and the photo as it should be for a leak is taken with a potato camera.

Samsung Expected to present next flagship of Galaxy

Samsung will introduce the next Galaxy flagship on February 21, 2019, where several versions are expected to be introduced by the device manufacturer. Most recently, one version is said to be present with a ceramic-based template design that provides users with a more premium experience.

The ceramic version of the Galaxy flagship is also expected to offer high specs - which offer up to 12GB of memory, in addition to 1TB of storage.

The ceramic version is also said through a built-in process that offers scratch-resistant support, as well as not so easy to fall off the hand.

Previously, it was said that this version of the ceramic is probably the 5G version offered in several countries. It is expected to offer a high price tag - and maybe the ceramic-based building is a bit of a relief to the buyer for the price paid.

As always, we're looking forward to this February 21st to see Samsung's surprise.

Samsung Journey of Innovation

As the flagship series celebrates its 10th anniversary, we want to reflect on just how far we’ve come in our journey of mobile innovation. It’s the perfect opportunity to look ahead at what’s in store for the decade ahead and share how Samsung will continue to test boundaries.

Laying the Foundation

Samsung has never been one to shy away from big ideas. Long before the first smartphone, engineers in Suwon, South Korea were re-imagining every element of the mobile phone, setting in motion the trends that have shaped the mobile technology today.

Right from the beginning, Samsung saw the potential of turning the mobile phone into a multi-functional device. The release of the TV phone in 1999 brought entertainment to the palm of our hands, while the built-in 10-megapixel camera on the Samsung B600 brought high-quality photography and the mobile phone together.

Meanwhile, the desire to expand mobile capabilities led to creative solutions. Years before “smartwatch” would become a household term, innovators at Samsung developed the watch phone in 1999 to enhance productivity on-the-go.

Improving user experience was also a core aspect of Samsung’s innovation DNA in the early years. In 2002, Samsung launched the True Color Phone, introducing the world to the active matrix LCD display, and paving the way for the innovations in mobile display technology that are synonymous with the Galaxy series.

The Arrival of Samsung Galaxy

The lessons learned from the early years positioned Samsung to lead the industry at the start of the smartphone era. Guided by the value of open collaboration, Samsung joined forces with Android to push the frontier of mobile technology – a move which led to the birth of the Galaxy series.

In March 2010, Samsung launched the first Galaxy S series device. Packed with best-in-class technology – including a powerful GPU, a 4-inch Super AMOLED display, and a 5-megapixel camera – the Galaxy S created the blueprint for a mobile experience that enriches and simplifies everyday life. Building on the achievements of Galaxy S, Galaxy SII and Galaxy SIII delivered even more relevant benefits to users, cementing Samsung’s status as a pioneer in the smartphone industry.

Over the years, the Galaxy series continued to break new ground, improving and expanding the smartphone experience with each new device. The Edge Display curved the smartphone screen for the very first time, creating an immersive screen. The Infinity Display pushed bezels to the very edge of the phone, expanding the screen size without needing a larger phone to create the ultimate, uninterrupted viewing experience.

In 2011, the Galaxy Note established an entirely new mobile category — the large screen smartphone and debuted the S Pen. With increased screen real estate, users could watch, multitask and create more. The Note debuted the iconic S Pen, delivering new ways to interact with the smartphone.

Alongside the development of hardware, the Galaxy ecosystem has grown every step of the way to make connected living a reality. A suite of functionalities emerged that came to define the Galaxy—the flagship features that users looked for in every new device: Samsung Knox, Samsung Pay, and countless other services and capabilities that made a Galaxy.

Shaping the Next Ten Years

Samsung has established a rich legacy of innovation and has shaped the smartphone experience for hundreds of millions of consumers around the world. But we’re not resting on our laurels. We’ve set our sights on Galaxy’s future and are focusing on engineering the technologies and breakthroughs that will continue to transform the mobile landscape.

At the 2018 Samsung Developer Conference, Samsung unveiled the Infinity Flex Display, marking the beginning of the era of foldable smartphones. It also introduced its new interface that simplifies and streamlines the user experience and gives consumers a more natural way to use their phones.

Samsung isn’t just changing how smartphones will look. It’s also changing how they’ll connect. We’re working hard to usher in the next generation of connectivity with 5G. Samsung has more 5G patents than any other company and was the first company to receive FCC approval for its 5G network equipment. Our technology brought 5G networking to South Korea, and in partnership with U.S. carriers, we’ve already brought the first wave of 5G to the United States. We’re committed to putting 5G in consumers’ hands with a 5G smartphone in the first half of 2019.

Samsung introduced Galaxy to the world. This landmark innovation opened up a world of possibilities for consumers everywhere and signaled the start of industry-firsts and trailblazing technologies that continue to empower consumers to do what they thought could not be done. The next chapter of the smartphone story will soon begin, and one thing can be said for sure: Samsung will continue to develop meaningful breakthroughs designed to help you do more of what you love.

Samsung Galaxy S10: the story so far

Design mockup from android central forum

The next Samsung flagship is just around the corner and should be announcing it on Feb 2019. Here is what we have learned so far with all the leaks information circulating on the internet since 2018.

1) 3 type of model variation may be released for their 10th Anniversary product launch for the S series. Both regular size and a larger version will be making its debut which is already familiar to both the Galaxy S8 | S8+ and Galaxy S9 | S9+. The 3rd entry to the S series line-up would be a flat variation for those still prefer a solid grip on the edges of their smartphones.

2) As Galaxy A8s was launched in China market with an introduction of the infinity-o display (pinhole display) forgoing the notch design making it an almost true screen to body ratio,

3) On top of that, built in ultrasonic fingerprint sensor which will also make into the feature of the next flagship series. This would make most space on the rear to have a better camera setup which most likely to have triple camera spec which we have seen on the Galaxy A7 2019.

A plausible rumour on a new gimmick feature of the wireless charging feature called "powershare" did mention around as well.

Stay tuned for more collective leaks around the internet
