Samsung hints at foldable smartphone with OLED display in earnings report

02 February, 2018, 00:04 | Author: Lloyd Doyle
  • Galaxy S8

The device will not only rival Apple iPhone X but will also go way beyond the conventional smartphones making Samsung a leading player in the smartphone market. This under-display scanner should give the Galaxy Note 9 a bigger screen on the same sized phone.

Samsung has been working with flexible displays and teasing us with videos and different patent applications in the past. While earlier rumors suggested that Samsung would include a 7nm Galaxy Note 9 chip, it seems as if the processor may be 10nm or 8nm instead. Both the devices will be powered by Snapdragon 845 SoC for the US and Chinse market while rest of the world will get Exynos 9810. After the Galaxy Note 7 was recalled for explosive batteries, Samsung instituted a detailed 8-point battery check system to ensure its batteries' safety. The release also publicly acknowledged the "Galaxy S9" naming scheme.


That's because the Note line could experience something of an existential crisis this year, as Samsung once again tries to figure out what makes a Note worth the money in a world that also contains a "plus" model Galaxy S.

While the iPhone X captured the attention of the over the holiday season, the Galaxy Note 8 still managed to sell very well. That's 3,000mAh for the S9, which is the same capacity as the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S7 before it. With the iPhone X breaking records for the most expensive phone with a starting price of close to $1000, it's clear that phone prices are continuing to skyrocket - largely due to the rising price of this cutting-edge technology. The way that phones use power resources often becomes a little more efficient year after year. Like we said before, that doesn't mean battery life can't be improved, considering that the phones will get other components that will be more energy efficient than the parts used in the Galaxy S8. From, the camera on the Galaxy S9 duo will get features like a "Super Speed" mode, Dual Pixel, and a "Super Slow-mo" mode. Following that, availability is expected to start within a few weeks of pre-orders.
