Samsung Members To Get A New Service: CamCylopedia

Published

on


Recently a piece of news was received that, On 01/07, Samsung held a meeting/conference at Samsung Suwon Digital City dubbed a workshop, where a Samsung user Sombra, who participated, told in the blog about the upcoming service called ‘CamCyclopedia,’ which is expected to be available on the Samsung Members app soon.

Samsung was facing troubles with the Camera feedback from different social platforms. Samsung needed a platform where its camera services could improve even better by having a dedicated service. This is where the CamCyclopedia comes into play; it would further develop the Samsung Ecosystem by providing feedback from users, entirely reserved for camera quality improvement. 

The user mentioned the following were the highlights of the meeting :

  • Conversations with camera developers and the utility of the Expert Raw app.
  • There were a total of 3 workshop sessions dedicated to different services, including q&a.
  • The laboratory in the basement was a space that simulated a lifelike environment with diverse subjects, colors, and lighting of 10,000 LuX for testing the Expert Raw app. 
  • Especially the third session introduced the AI ​​work method, in the test environment of the Galaxy Camera, via the camera manager.
  • The Participant was able to learn top secrets.
  • The Participant highlighted that the best session among the sessions was the Expert Raw session. There were a lot of questions about Expert Raw and real-time during the conversation with the camera staff.
  • The Participant was able to witness the progress worth one year of the Galaxy camera development along with the development of unreleased devices, hinting at the next ‘Galaxy S Series ‘and the upcoming ‘foldable series.’
  • The Participant revealed that experts like NFT artist Sang-Woo Koh and famous YouTuber Mathew Choi were also present in the workshop.

Expert RAW was launched for the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+ & Galaxy S22 Ultra devices earlier this Feb. It allows users to vividly capture photos in low light conditions. Its main USP was the manual operations such as ISO, shutter speed, EV, manual focus, white balance, etc., which enabled users natural & unaffected control of the camera. The app has both JPEG and RAW formats; RAW format could be edited by apps or software that support DNG.

Concluding Remarks :

We can conclude that Samsung is looking for error corrections and quality improvements to the camera.

This workshop, which seems to be the origin project for the future CamCyclopedia service, will provide a native & exclusive evolution of the camera by evaluating the feedback exclusive to Samsung.

This innovation from Samsung is unparalleled service, which we haven’t seen from other organizations, that will provide a stage where the users will be able to work along with the developers directly. 

With the Galaxy S series & upcoming Galaxy S23 series in their arsenal, Samsung is trying to target the audience which demands lifelike real pictures & videos through the smartphone camera.

It amazes us how far the cameras have come & how far the technology will take them.

Samsung Galaxy AI’s Circle to Search Could Soon Get a new Upgrade

Published

on

By


Samsung introduced its Galaxy AI, which consists of several generative AI features. Circle to Search with Google is one of the most admired features. Now, it may soon get a major upgrade based on comments made in a recent Made by Google Podcast episode. 

The Circle to Search with Google feature is available on both Galaxy S24 and Pixel 8 devices, and reports are saying that soon it could get a big usability upgrade and become a bit harder to trigger by accident. The forthcoming changes will be based on comments made in a recent Made by Google Podcast episode, in which host Rachid Finge spoke with Erin Lynch and Alistair Pott, who worked with the Circle to Search development team. 

During the podcast, Lynch admits that the circle to search with was quite easy to activate by accidental touches as it’s located on the same gesture bar or home button that users use for other purposes most of the time. Regarding this, she and Pott assured that Google was working to fix it to avoid accidentally activating this feature; however, they didn’t elaborate on the assurance. 

However, the Circle to Search feature already received an update that gives it the power to translate circled text. It is expected that the future update could be a combined search and lens results page while using the Circle to Search feature instead of having them separate as they are now. 

Apart from this, the podcast unveiled a few interesting twists regarding how Circle to Search came to be. It came to light that it is based on Google Lens and has been in development since January 2023, after Google staffers were actively working on how Lens became more readily available outside its app.

Samsung Ecosystem Matching Apple’s Tight Integration

Published

on


Samsung offers a unique ecosystem that delivers a distinct experience as compared to its competitor, Apple. 

Samsung has its own OG (original) ecosystem and is even better than its rival Apple in functionality. It’s not just a phrase, but here we are mentioning some of the key reasons why, in many ways, it’s better. However, Samsung lagged behind Apple in delivering a coordinated ecosystem with well-designed gadgets, but that doesn’t mean Samsung has a lack of willpower. 

Now, Samsung has covered the gap in some areas and even exceeded Apple in others. Check out the key facts mentioned below:

Samsung’s versatility over Apple 

From then to now, Apple has only offered limited models, tons of monopolies, and high-budget. On the other hand, Samsung offers dozens of phones in any size and budget you could prefer. The same fact is true of tablets: Apple’s lineup has gotten more complex, but Samsung is still offering more options. 

Samsung has an extra lineup: ‘Foldable phones’ – 

Samsung offers dozens of foldable phones; one is a book-style foldable, and the other is a flip, such as the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and the Galaxy Z Flip 5. Also, we are gearing up for the latest Galaxy Z Fold 6 series. Whereas Apple has yet to offer its very first foldable device. Samsung even offers a phone with a built-in stylus, the Galaxy S Ultra’. Apple does not do that sort of thing, ever. 

Samsung offers one Galaxy for every Apple device

Samsung offers one Galaxy for each Apple device; for instance, for the Apple Watch, Samsung offers the Galaxy Watch; for AirPods, there’s the Galaxy Buds; for MacBooks, Samsung laptops run Windows; or you can launch Samsung DeX on a Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra. Both brands offer monitors, keyboards, and mice. Somehow, Samsung lacks a VR headset compared to Apple’s Vision Pro, but its ecosystem expands to smart home appliances and even TVs. 

Galaxy’ are more compatible than Apple devices.

Comparing the latest devices of both brands, the iPhone 15 Pro Max and the Galaxy S24 Ultra, Samsung offers a better display, more RAM, and faster charging speeds than the iPhone 15 Pro Max. 

Jumping on tablets! Galaxy S9 Ultra versus iPad Pro: Samsung offers a 14.6-inch display, whereas Apple offers a 12.9-inch. It is crystal clear that Samsung is winning here. 

Samsung’s Galaxy devices are now capable of delivering similar smooth connectivity features as Apple’s. Both Apple and Samsung’s ecosystems let you share files, switch audio between devices, and more; the only difference appears in the way of functionality or features’ names.

Samsung has more features than Apple

Samsung offers more features as compared to Apple; for instance, Samsung’s DeX offers a desktop-like experience on phones and tablets and multitasking with features like resizable windows, app minimization, and a taskbar. Samsung prioritizes a UI to optimize multitasking, whereas Apple boasts a supreme app ecosystem. Samsung has yet to offer a traditional desktop operating system; currently, it integrates heavily with Microsoft’s. 

Unlike Apple’s focus on supreme integration within its ecosystem, Samsung prefers to go with quality devices that are capable of performing well independently. Samsung avoids monopolies; you can seamlessly connect your Galaxy devices with non-Galaxy devices like Windows PCs. 

These are key facts that transparently prove Samsung’s ecosystem is far better than Apple’s.
