This mode can be accessed and brought to functionality by switching on it in the ‘Battery and Device Care’ menu in the ‘Settings.’ After that device reboots, and it won’t allow the device to show or transfer these details unless the user unlocks it with the biometrics.  

At present, this feature is introduced in the Galaxy S21 device via the software update in S.Korea and is expected to expand to other devices & regions soon.

“Technology is connecting the world closer than ever, but the risks are also increasing.” “Samsung’s top priority is customers. “It’s about making sure you stay safe while trying out this new experience. -Samsung Electronics MX Division

Samsung Display is now ramping up production of its OLED display for tablets. After supplying OLED panels for the iPad Pro this year, they are reportedly working on ones for the iPad mini. 

report from Korea claims that the Korean giant began its production of samples for the new iPad mini last month, and Apple has used LCD panels in the existing iPad series but began applying OL ED to products released this year. Among the four iPad models, including Pro, Air, Regular, and Mini, at the moment only the Pro models arrive with OLED displays. 

Apple decided to apply OLED to the iPad Mini and Air models, which are supposed to be introduced in 2026. On the other side, Samsung Display began developing 8-inch panel samples for the iPad mini last month. A small number of domestic partners conducting advanced development with Samsung Display have also begun responding in this regard. 

Samsung Display is known to have planned to mass-produce the new iPad mini’s OLED panels on their Cheonan A2 production line. This line specializes in making rigid OLED panels, and they may be dedicated to looking into tablet-size panels as compared to smartphone displays. The panel has been mass-produced through the collaboration of Samsung Display and LG since the first quarter of the year. 

An industry insider revealed, “I understand that Samsung Display began developing samples for the OLED iPad Mini last month at Apple’s request. After developing initial samples in the first half of this year, we will be able to enter the development stage for mass production within the year.”.

Here’s the best way to choose your Samsung Galaxy Ring 

Published

By


Samsung is looking forward to expanding its smart wearable family by introducing an ever-new smart ring under the title Galaxy Ring, which is expected to debut at the next Galaxy Unpacked event in July. 

Somehow, it seems that choosing a smart ring is more complicated than a smartwatch since you can’t adjust the strap of a ring like a watch. Now the Korean giant is dedicated to considering this fact and may offer a sample kit for you to try out right before choosing the most suitable Galaxy Ring. 

This is being speculated by tipster Evan Blass, who posted an image of the forthcoming Samsung Galaxy Ring delivery process. Similar to other smart rings, Samsung decided to provide the option to receive a sample kit. Although the Galaxy Ring will follow the US standard sizes, it doesn’t look like the brand will offer half sizes. 

However, while choosing a smart Galaxy Ring, it’s better initially to go for the largest size and wear it at least for a day to test comfort. Here’s the fact: smart rings cannot be adjusted later by chance if your size changes. The perfect fit of the smart ring is comfortable but not enough, since the sensors need to be aligned with the bottom of your finger, and if the ring is too loose, it could rotate. On the other side, if it’s too tight, then it will cause discomfort and be difficult to take off. 

Keep in mind that getting the kit with the samples is the best way to choose it, even if you know the exact ring size for each of your fingers, especially in the scenario of the Samsung Galaxy Ring.

Samsung Repair Contract Leak Highlights Privacy and Forced Detachment Problems

Published

on

By


iFixit has stepped back from the collaboration with Samsung on the Self-Reair program, citing obstacles created by Samsung. This suggests difficulties for consumers seeking to fix their own devices. 

A leaked contract unveiled terms treated unfairly by Samsung at independent repair shops. These terms will probably be unfavorable and possibly lead to lawsuits against Samsung. With both iFixit’s departure and the leaked contract, Samsung faces an efficient public relations standoff regarding its repair practices. 

A copy of this confidential contract has come into existence through 404 Media. Some of the restrictions that it imposes might be against the law in states that have passed right-to-repair bills, although, at the moment, it is not clear what year this contract is from. The Verge hears that it’s from 2023. 

The leaked Samsung repair contract has raised several red flags; for instance, shops must share customer details, such as name, contact information, and more, with Samsung for each repair, regardless of size, to access actual parts. Soldering repairs, a common fix, are not acceptable, probably restricting the types of repairs these shops can offer. Also, if your device has been previously repaired with non-Samsung parts, then the shop is forced to disassemble it entirely, despite you wanting a different repair.

It’s possible that the Korean giant may have changed a few languages in this contract or will do so before the right-to-repair laws go into effect in several states. Also, between iFixit and this contract leak, Samsung has taken two big blows to its right-to-repair commitment—the optics of it—in just one day. However, the brand has yet to give any official response, but it will quite probably be coming.
