Samsung’s single-camera phone that made history

Published

on


In this modern and technically developed era, where nearly every premium device features three or four camera lenses for better photographic abilities, there were some single-camera devices in the past that were able to capture outstanding quality images and make history. One of these incredible devices is Samsung’s Galaxy S9 device, launched in 2018. Let’s learn more about this incredible device.

Having various lenses in a device won’t help to make the image quality better; instead, it gives us plenty of options. For example, to capture zoom images, we can use Telephoto or Periscopic sensors; for wide-angle images, there are Ultrawide sensors, and for portrait images, the device gets a primary sensor. It indicates that a single sensor isn’t enough for better-quality images, but the Galaxy S9 denies this fact. Let’s know why?

Let us tell you, the year 2018’s Galaxy S9 device is one of the Korean firm Samsung’s high-end Galaxy smartphones. The device features a 12.2-megapixel Samsung S5K2L3 image sensor, which is obviously the device’s main camera. Informatively, this image sensor has a variable focal aperture of f/1.5-f/2.4. This incredible focal aperture gives the device the ability to capture good-quality images in low ambient light.

Additionally, had an optical image stabilization system that reduces blurring in images captured in low-light or moving conditions. It also has a phase detection autofocus system along with a dual-pixel sensor. The in-question device can record a slow-motion video at 960 fps and a normal video with a 4K resolution. Besides, the device features a front camera with an 8MP resolution and a focal aperture of f/1.7.

The good thing is this Galaxy device has an autofocus feature, because of which it can automatically focus on the subject and delivers a clearer and sharper image. Samsung also implemented an excellent photographic section in this in-question Galaxy device, which makes it easier to capture high-quality images in a variety of situations. Other than photographic abilities, the device was so good and praise-worthy overall as well.

Now it was only a matter of one Galaxy device, but there were a few other smartphones too (besides the Samsung Galaxy), which proved that to capture better quality images, the sheer number of camera sensors really doesn’t matter. These devices are Apple’s iPhone SE (launched in 2022), OnePlus 3T (launched in 2016), HUAWEI Mate 8 (launched in 2015), and Motorola’s Moto Z Force (launched in 2016).

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 Early Benchmark Reveals Key Specs

Published

on


Samsung is this close to debuting the next-generation flip phone, the Galaxy Z Flip 6, at the Galaxy Unpacked event in July 2024. The early benchmark now reveals the device’s key specs. 

Galaxy Z Flip 6 is the hot topic for now, and the leaks and rumors are going to increase the enthusiasm among Galaxy Foldable fans. Now the new benchmark listing is teasing them as it confirms a few largely predictable key specifications. 

Although the Geekbench database doesn’t mention the device name dedicatedly, since last year’s Galaxy Z Flip 5 model number SM-F731U and the present spotted model number SM-F741U are quite similar in existence, it is pretty obvious it stands for Galaxy Z Flip 6. 

Noticeably, just because this particular pre-release Z Flip 6 prototype features 8GB of RAM, that doesn’t mean the Korean giant is not setting up a higher 12GB configuration as well. The leaked benchmark confirms the expectation that the forthcoming Galaxy Z Flip 6 could be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset. 

The smartphone achieves impressive graphics performance in a benchmark test, exceeding the Z Flip 5 and even strongly competing with the Galaxy S24 Ultra. Given this prospect, it is expected that the Galaxy Z Flip 6 could offer a promising performance. 

Although there are yet no exact or official reports in existence regarding a Galaxy S-style processor separation for particular regions, The Exynos 2400 SoC, mind you, is not slow enough as compared to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 beast, so there’s a high chance that you would not be able to catch the difference between the two possible Galaxy Z Fold 6 models in terms of real-time performance. 

Somehow, it appears that it will be hard to convince people to buy the Galaxy Z Flip 6 since it has a familiar design rendered a couple of months ago and also unchanged charging speeds. It is expected that Samsung could offer a 3,700 to around 4,000 mAh battery and two 12MP rear-facing cameras.

Samsung Could Use Gemini Nano Version 2 In Galaxy S25 Series

Published

Samsung Galaxy S25 is next in line to join the premium ‘S’ series of the Korean giant and is expected to use Gemini Nano Version 2. 

Currently, Galaxy smartphones use Google’s Gemini Nano AI for on-device tasks, but now reports are unveiling that the forthcoming Galaxy S25 series will use the newer version of Gemini Nano 2. Some of the cloud-based features utilize the more powerful Gemini Pro; this suggests a key focus on user security and offline functionality. 

Transparently, the Galaxy S24 has broken the record of its predecessor series, and the Galaxy AI was a major reason behind this. Galaxy AI includes many generative AI tools that involve on-device AI, and most of them include text generation and language translation. 

Nguyen Phi Hung’s post on X speculates about this, despite the brand’s lack of official announcement on the matter. However, if the reports are accurate, Google and Samsung are preparing to collaborate once more to introduce the next generation of Galaxy S phones.

Samsung is gearing up to bring major improvements to Galaxy AI to the Galaxy S25 smartphones. At the moment, the brand has not revealed anything officially yet, but we can expect that it will offer a slew of performance and camera improvements with a similar form factor to what we have gotten over the past couple of years. 

For now, a thing that was quite unexpected is a new version of Gemini Nano, since it launched only a couple of months ago. Given this prospect, it is hard to expect Google’s release plan. It will be interesting to see what new features and novelties the forthcoming Galaxy S25 could release.
