Samsung Snatched Its Leading Position From Apple: All Thanks To AI-Powered Galaxy S24 Series

Published

on


Samsung Electronics is back in the game as it regained its leading position in global smartphone sales. 

As per the metrics for 2023, Samsung somehow lost its leading position as Apple held the leading position in global smartphone sales. And now, just within five months, Samsung has snatched back its leading position from Apple. 

It appears that this superfast comeback goes to its new AI-powered Galaxy S24 smartphones, and industry officials and data also revealed the same. Back in September 2023, the Korean giants surrendered the No. 1 position to Apple. At that time, the giants were busy in the development phase for the Galaxy S24 series with Galaxy AI features. And as intended, after the debut of this latest Galaxy S24 series, giants got such a positive response in the market. 

Samsung sold 19.69 million smartphones in February and took 20% of the of the market share, whereas Apple sold 17.41 million phones and took 18% of the of the market share, as per the data from market researcher Counterpoint Research. The analysts attributed the return to the No. 1 position to strong sales in the US and European markets. 

Along with the 34% share, the Galaxy S24 series maintained its legacy in the European market, plus it also experienced a notable surge in its share of the US market. Noticeably, Apple’s share fell from 64% to 48% in the US market. Last year, Samsung lost the leading spot in the global tech market in terms of shipment by Apple, but finally, Samsung snatched its posting back, all thanks to the Galaxy S24 series. 

The statistics reveal that after the launch of the Galaxy S24 series along with Galaxy AI features by the end of February, Samsung had sold out 6.53 million units globally. That’s how Samsung came back with a bang in the game.

Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 Rumored to Increase Battery Needs

Published

A new notice for the smartphone manufacturers who are looking forward to powering their forthcoming phones with Snapdragon 8 Gen 4: you all need to include a larger battery too. 

The forthcoming smartphones must have ‘high-density’ batteries if they have Qualcomm’s next-generation Snapdragon 8 gen 4 processor. This is being speculated by the reports from the Digital Chat Station on Weibo, which state three flagship devices gearing up to run Qualcomm’s forthcoming chipset have started active development with 5,500mAh batteries. 

The reports are reporting that the core material for such batteries is still being developed to support the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4, and the batteries could reach an overhead of 6,000 mAh to overfeed the processor’s power hunger.

The reports also stated that a reason behind the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4’s boosted power hunger could be due to its alleged 2+6 core setup. This rumored setup probably removes the chances for Qualcomm to consist of any effective cores, cutting down on how much power it draws.

Don McGuire, Qualcomm’s chief marketing officer, confirmed a few specs regarding the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 at MWC 2024. He stated that users can expect the chip to arrive during the Summit in October and that it features Oryon CPU cores, plus the cores can output 2x greater CPU performance as well as 4.5x faster AI processing. 

It is expected that the core will probably be escorted by Qualcomm’s seventh-generation modem, along with 5G and non-terrestrial network support for satellite communications functionalities. The reports also revealed that the chip could be built off the 3nm process of TSMC, and the cores could reach 4.0 GHz speeds. With Qualcomm seemingly going all in on power, somewhere, the latest rumors make a bit more sense.

Apple Get Inspired By Samsung Notes Feature For iOS 18

Published

on


Apple is actively gearing up for its next iteration, iOS 18, which could copy Samsung’s one of the convenient features named ‘Samsung Notes.”

The Notes app is not new for Apple, since it has been offering this app in iOS since the initial iPhone. To enhance the facilities within the app, for instance, the ability to insert images and tables, it has rolled out updates continuously. 

Despite all this, Apple’s Notes app is behind Samsung’s Notes app in terms of features. Now, the reports are saying that Apple, with the forthcoming iOS 18, could copy a feature from the Samsung Notes app. It is expected that Apple’s Note app in iOS 18 will permit users to record audio from within a note and add that file to the note. 

Samsung has already offered an audio recording feature in Samsung Notes on Android for some time now. With this feature, users would get the power to add more context to a note. If the reports are to be believed, the interface for recording audio in the Notes app will look the same as the interface of Apple’s Voice Memo application. 

The reports revealed that Apple’s Notes app in iOS 18 will also offer a feature named ‘Math Notes’ that will offer three convenient functionalities, which are as follows: 

  • It could permit users to directly insert calculations from the Calculator app on the device into a note. 
  • It will offer support for properly displaying mathematical notation to avoid calculation mistakes in notes. 
  • It will permit users to write, type, and solve mathematical equations. 

Microsoft OneNote offers the same facilities, but under the name of Math Assistant. It appears that by adding Math Notes with the ability to record audio and attach audio files, Apple’s app could become an amazing tool for academics. On the other hand, Samsung Notes lacks Match Notes, but it is expected that soon the Korean giant will offer.

Google Pixel 9, Fold 2, and Pixel Tablet Rumored to Receive New Samsung Modem with Satellite Connectivity

Published

on

By


Google is setting up to introduce its next-generation Pixel devices, including the Pixel 9 lineup, Pixel Fold 2, and Pixel Tablet, all of which will arrive with a new cellular modem. 

Google, with its Pixel 7 series, has already jumped on Samsung modems from Qualcomm modems for their Pixel devices. This change corresponds with the Exynos base of the Tensor Processor by Google. Whereas the new modem is sufficient, it has issues with weak signal conditions and also consumes enough battery power.

Now, Google is gearing up to power the forthcoming Pixel 9 and other devices with an upgraded modem. The reports say that a few modem upgrades will arrive in the Pixel 9 series and will bring some essential upgrades, of which satellite connectivity is the most noticeable. 

However, that modem, which will be a part of Tensor G4, will still be provided by the Korean brand ‘Samsung’, and the new generation is signified as 5400, up from the 5300 coupled with Tensor G3. 

It is expected that the forthcoming Pixel Fold 2 and a new 5G Pixel Tablet nicknamed ‘Clementine’ could use the same modem as the Pixel 7 and 8 series. If the expectation comes true, then this will be the first Pixel Tablet with cellular connectivity. 

Pixel devices are getting a modem upgrade with the new 3GPP Rel. 17 standard, authorizing satellite connectivity for emergencies. At the moment, it appears that improvements are being made, but hardware changes are not clear yet. The satellite SoS through the “Satellite Gateway” application will be merged with the Emergency SOS; users will also have to answer questions about the situation, choose to notify contacts, and send messages to emergency services. 

The questions, which may have multiple-choice answers, are mentioned below: 

  • What happened?
  • [Are you, are they, or is everyone] breathing?
  • In total, how many people are [missing or trapped]?
  • What best describes your situation?
  • What is on fire?
  • Are there weapons involved?
  • What type of vehicle or vessel?
  • Do any of these apply?

It is expected that Google could shift to a TSMC-produced Tensor chip in 2025, but it’s yet to be clear whether the brand will change modems at that point. Tensor G4 is, beyond this modem, expected to be a relatively minor change.
