Published

on


A prevalent neurodevelopmental condition in children is ADHD. As part of its celebration of ADHD Awareness Month in October, Samsung Canada is pleased to work with ADHD specialists at the Possibilities Clinic to create a center of resources that focuses on the ways in which SmartThings and other connected technologies may help Canadians with ADHD. This will provide practical help for people with the disorder. Samsung Canada has teamed up with top ADHD specialists at Possibilities Clinic to demonstrate how SmartThings’ cutting-edge features and technology can provide everyday assistance for the 1.8 million Canadians who suffer from ADHD.

Support is available for kids, teenagers, and adults from the Possibilities Clinic’s ADHD specialists. Exciting possibilities are built by a team of individuals from several disciplines working with clients. The new Samsung portal provides consumers with information on simple ways SmartThings technology may improve their daily lives in honor of ADHD Awareness Month. In medicine, psychology, psychiatry, psychotherapy, social work, occupational therapy, education, and business leadership, experts collaborate with patients at the Possibilities clinic to create exciting possibilities.

Samsung May Offer Software Updates for More Than 5 Years

The resource hub, which is now live, outlines key times throughout the day when SmartThings, Samsung apps, and other connected technology can play a supportive role for Canadians with ADHD, helping to improve routines, reduce distractions, enhance creativity, and more. Examples include automating a routine in the SmartThings app, activating Focus Mode to prevent interruptions, setting up a sleep schedule for the best sleep, and setting reminders to keep track of important items. It is simple to include routines in users’ daily routines because of the hub’s abundance of information. The hub’s layout offers both a “text mode” and a “visual mode,” where users may switch between bulleted text and icons as they see fit.

Jihoon Lee, President and CEO, Samsung Canada, commented, At Samsung, supporting mental health is a key area of focus. We are incredibly proud to partner with the Possibilities Clinic for ADHD Awareness Month and help bring to life even more ways that SmartThings and connected technology can help Canadians with ADHD enhance their well-being.”

Samsung Galaxy S25’s advanced AI novelties could boost its price

Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra Brightness & Adaptive Color Tone

Samsung started working on the Galaxy S25 series, which is supposed to be launched early next year. This forthcoming device is expected to be priced higher as compared to its predecessor. 

Samsung will expand its high-end S series by introducing a next-gen smartphone series named the Galaxy S25. It’s too early to discuss the Galaxy S25, but leaks and rumors are doing their jobs by offering more details about the upcoming Galaxy S25. This upcoming device is expected to cost more than the current S-series devices. 

The reason behind this report appears to be that a Galaxy S25 will be more expensive than a Galaxy S24 due to its higher manufacturing costs. The US chip designer Qualcomm could push the upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 into production in the second half of the year. This latest chipset is expected to boost AI processing. 

Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 will be a truly advanced chip, but its high-end tech advancements might lead to higher costs, which could translate into a price hike for the upcoming Galaxy S25. The report suggested that, according to a recent prediction from industry watcher Ming-Chi Kuo, Qualcomm might increase the cost of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 by 25–30% compared to the Gen 3 solution. 

The Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 will be manufactured on the 3nm N3E process by TSMC; it’s the same technique used to build Apple’s A18 Pro chip. This shift will supposedly cause the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 to be 25–30% more expensive than its predecessor. Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 costs around $190–$200; by this metric, the upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 might cost $260. 

However, Samsung could deal with the higher expenses of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 for the Galaxy S25 by absorbing the cost or reducing the quality in other areas, such as the battery or display, but this could be risky, such as switching to its in-house Exynos 2500 chip. The upcoming chipset will be fabricated from TSMC’s most advanced process and should bring performance gains to the CPU, GPU, and NPU (AI processing).
