Samsung One UI: How long will Galaxy smartphones get Android updates

Published

on


Samsung has emerged as one of the leading companies, following Google, in consistently delivering software updates for its Galaxy devices. While the company previously prioritized hardware quality over software updates, it has now shifted its focus to the software department in recent years. This strategic shift is driven by the recognition that providing robust software support is crucial for enhancing the reliability of their devices. In today’s competitive smartphone market, customers increasingly seek devices that offer innovative features and continue to deliver an exceptional user experience over an extended period.

Samsung Android 14 & One UI 6.0 Update Details

So to keep its dominance in the Android smartphone, Samsung has changed its strategy and started giving proper updates to the smartphones. Earlier, the company promised to give at least three updates to the expensive smartphones, and the other one is only eligible for the two Android updates. But after the policy change in 2022, the Korean giant has expanded the software support for the devices. Now the high-end device is eligible for four Android updates.

Apart from these, Samsung has also parted the device in eligibility of security updates available for the devices; however, most of the devices are eligible for five years of security updates. But if you go for the calculation, you have to go for the exact and then add the different eligible years for each device. To save you time, we have created a list of all Galaxy devices eligible for the updates.

Samsung Electronics Begins Mass Production For 9th-Gen V-NAND

Published

on


The Korean Electronics firm announced that it has begun mass production for its one-terabit (Tb) tripe-level cell (TLC) 9th-generation vertical NAND (V-NAND). 

One of the key reasons for beginning this mass production is just to solidify its leadership in the NAND flash market. This 9th generation V-NAND flash memory has significant improvements. It offers a 50% increase in storage density compared to its predecessor, the 8th-generation V-NAND. This appears due to the tiny cell size and thinner design. 

The Korean giant also executed new techniques for upgrading the reliability and lifespan of the memory cells while eliminating dummy channel holes, which significantly reduced the planar area of the memory cells. The Head of Flash Products & Technology of the Memory Business at Samsung Electronics, SungHoi Hur, stated, “Through our latest V-NAND, Samsung will continue to set the trend for the high-performance, high-density solid-state drive (SSD) market that meets the needs of the coming AI generation.” 

Samsung‘s advanced ‘channel hole etching’ technology exhibits the brand’s leadership in process capabilities. This technology creates electron pathways by stacking mold layers and increases fabrication productivity as it authorizes simultaneous drilling of the industry’s highest cell layer count in a double-stack structure. As the cell layers increase, the capability to pierce through higher cell numbers becomes crucial, demanding more complicated etching techniques. 

The 9th-generation V-NAND is enabled with the next-gen NAND flash interface, Toggle 5.1, which will help to support the increased data input and output speeds by at least 33% to up to 3.2 Gbps. The Korean giant plans to solidify its position within the high-performance SSD market by expanding support for PCIe 5.0. 

With the advancement in low-power design, power consumption has also improved by 10%.

Samsung Gains 23 Patents For ‘Self-Record’ From Seagate in the USA

Published

By


The Korean brand ‘Samsung’ announced that recently it bought 23 patents related to magnetic recording technology from Seagate. 

The giant sold its own HDD business and patents to Seagate 13 years ago, and now it is acquiring specific magnetic recording patents instead of ones it previously owned. The patents are possibly for data storage advancements, potentially for use in Samsung’s memory or storage products. 

The aim behind the purchase is yet to be debated; some have speculated that Samsung probably uses these patents to upgrade its in-memory computing technology, whereas others are expecting that it’s simply to cut ties with Seagate after their previous business dealings. It has become known that most of the acquired patents are from 2002–2020, and four have already expired. 

Back in 2011, Samsung sold its hard disk drive (HDD) business and a total of 479 patents to Seagate, and this was part of a major deal that pointed to various twerks; for instance, the Korean giant getting some of Seagate’s stock, collaboration on future storage solutions, Seagate providing HDDs for Galaxy devices, and many more. Later, in 2016, the Korean giant sold all of its Seagate stock. 

Now the reports are saying that Samsung has bought 23 patents related to magnetic recording technology from Seagate. Some experts are saying that Samsung could use magnetic recording patents to develop MRAM-based in-memory computing technology, which is a powerful memory type with advantages for AI chips. At the moment, the exact reason behind this step is not clear. 

An industry insider released a statement: “It may be an attempt by Samsung Electronics to settle the remaining business relationship after selling its stake in Seagate in the past, or it may be a kind of fake patent purchase strategy to deceive competitors.”

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.
