Samsung Planning Bendable Phone

By George Fox | Uncategorized

Samsung has been one of the front runners when it comes to pushing the boundaries of communication technology. They have constantly produced high-quality smartphones with futuristic curves, as evident in their latest Edge range of smartphones. Now, they are yet again challenging the limits of phone displays with talks of two new models that features bendable screens. This development, if proven to be true, will likely further boost Samsung’s sales and standing in the telecommunications world.

Samsung planning bendable phoneRumours of Samsung’s bendable screen phones has been spreading rapidly since 2013. Consumers have been excited of the prospect and have been waiting patiently since then. News about the technology has been vague, until now, as Bloomberg released news of the models from a source “familiar with the matter.”

The new models, codenamed Valley, are to be introduced at the 2017 Mobile World Congress sometime between 27th February and 2nd March, according to an anonymous source. Both devices will be using Samsung’s Organic Light-Emitting Diodes (OLED) technology similar to Apple iPhone’s OLED models, said to be released late in the next year. The timing would definitely give Samsung a heads-up against Apple.

Recently, a video has been circulation showing a working prototype of the new phones. In the video, it shows that the first model folds like a compact make-up kit, or a clam shell. While the second model is a 5-inch phone that unfurls into an 8-inch display, like a tablet. They are believed to be 0.3 mm thick, with a 1080 x 1920 resolution, 386 ppi, and not as battery-draining than most of the current smartphone models.

According to the source, one phone will be powered by a Snapdragon 620 processor, manufactured by Qualcomm and the other is powered by the faster Snapdragon 820 processor. The phones, however, won’t be under the Samsung Galaxy S series and may have an entirely new name. The new bendable screen feature is expected to be integrated in future Samsung models.

As of now, Samsung is in the process of testing the devices, including batteries, sensors, cameras, and other components. An expert has stated that Samsung may have resolved most of the issues but are still working on improvements. The company is said to have mass production of the said models sometime next year.

This evolution of display screens can change how we look at smartphones. Bendable phones that actually work may seem unrealistic and it’s unsure whether consumers may like it. But 2017 is right around the corner and soon, we will see whether Samsung will deliver or not.

Now, it has proven to be a great asset to business where one can gather data and utilize it to develop and grow their business effortlessly. With the advent of modern technology, it is expected that sales of digital technology will rise exponentially.

This eliminates the need for actual humans to work in a factory or company. This aims to improve productivity and efficiency while decreasing the amount of money invested on the business.

Virtual RealityTop 10 Tech Trends for 2017

Now, it has been slowly integrated to serve a similar purpose in television.

It really has made the virtual world a reality.

We have been fascinated by the idea of robots as evident from the countless sci-fi movies over the years. Now, robots are all around us, providing us with comfort and ease. They have helped reshape our daily lives. They have been assets in the field of industry, agriculture, transport, and even health. Now, a different kind of robot has been developed. This robot can relate to human beings. It can be considered a confidant, a friend, or a companion. With this development, no one will ever need to be alone.

Wearable Technology

Wearable techs have provided us with real-time information without the hassle of carrying a device. However, despite its countless potential, this technology has not been consumed by the majority yet. As of now, research has been ongoing on how to make wearable techs have a bigger impact – from work to health. In the future, expect it to be much more commonplace in our everyday lives.

Faster Cell Phones

The majority of the cell phones run at 3G or 4G networks. As of now, various cellular companies has begun testing a new 5G network. This new network is 100 times faster than 4G, however, it’s unlikely to be receive mainstream take-up before the end of 2016. Verizon has said that it’s aiming to release 5G networks for commercial use in the year 2017.

Cross-Platform Integration

Windows has front-lined this concept with its new update, Windows 10. It has enabled various devices with the same network to have the same set-up or can even stream the same game. In other words, it lets our devices talk to each other. In the next year, other companies are anticipated to follow in Windows footsteps and cross-platform integration will be a common thing.

top 10 tech trends for 2017Solar Panels

With global warming posing a great threat to our world, companies have been on the look-out for ways to do things more environment-friendly. Solar panels are a great way to have clean and green energy that doesn’t have as much carbon output as fuel does. Unfortunately solar hasn’t seen mass market use, mostly because of it’s steep installation costs. However, expect solar costs to come right down in the coming year. The shift in price-point should make it much more accessible to the public.

Internet of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a system of physical objects such as buildings, vehicles, devices, and others. These objects are embedded with software, sensors, electronics and network connectivity that enables them to collect and store real-time data. This development aims to provide improved efficiency, accuracy and productivity which can serve and quite likely stimulate the global economy. The IoT has huge potential and its benefits are endless. Once released, it will revolutionize data gathering, marketing, and communication, among other things.
