Samsung Galaxy S25 to Get Clock Speed Boost in Chip Redesign

Published

on


Qualcomm is building up to redesigning the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 to reach a higher clock speed and is expected to strongly compete with Apple’s forthcoming A-series chips. 

Initially, it was finalized that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 design would be on the floor with a target frequency of 4.00 GHz and above in April this year, but unfortunately, that didn’t come true. However, jumping on Apple’s M4 and its high clock speeds helped the chipset accomplish a record-breaking single-core score. 

Now the report says that Qualcomm appears to be debuting a chipset redesign with a new target frequency of 4.26 GHz. It is expected that we could see this change on Apple’s forthcoming A18 and A18 Pro phones. If the report is to be believed, Qualcomm is offering the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 a performance boost to contend with the latest chip from Apple. 

The design is being pinched to hit a clock speed of 4.26 GHz and will probably be finalized in June. This should upgrade both single-core and multi-core performance for the forthcoming chip, which is expected to arrive in October. 

Apple’s revealing of the M4 probably caught the San Diego brand off-guard, with @jasonwill101 posting the rumor on X, stating that the forthcoming SoC will be tweaked. Given that the M4 is mass-produced on TSMC’s second-generation 3nm process, most expectedly Apple could leverage this technology for the A18 and A18 Pro, giving them similar performance attributes as the newly announced 11-inch and 13-inch iPad Pro models. 

On the other hand, Qualcomm is also stating that it will mass produce its Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 on the same node. However, the next smartphone chipset is expected to be based on the Snapdragon X Elite, which, noticeably, does not even support the ARMv9 instruction set. It appears that Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 8 Gen might not reach its full potential because of a missing feature (SME), but a higher clock speed aims to cover up the gap. 

Here’s the fact: the phone manufacturers will need to upgrade cooling systems to avert overheating.

Samsung to Release Galaxy Z Fold 6 ‘Slim’ in October: No S-Pen, Limited Market

Published

on


A new Samsung Galaxy device named Galaxy Z Fold 6 ‘Slim’ is on the list of Korean giants to introduce late this year. This device will be thinner than the actual Galaxy Z Fold 6. Let’s take a closer look at what the new report is saying. 

The new report says that the Korean giant is working on a new slimmer device that will be the second and thinner version of the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 6. However, the slimmer version will arrive with limited availability and potentially miss some features. This comes as Samsung faces increased competition from other brands that are offering more innovative and advanced foldable devices. 

The reason behind this new edition appears to be to stand as a strong competitor in the foldable market again. Since then, Samsung has lost its market lead. The fan community is eagerly waiting and excited about a rumored thinner, cheaper Fold 6, but Samsung seemed unsure about releasing it. Now a tipter on suggests that the Galaxy Z Fold 6 Slim will be named the Samsung W25 in China. This means the device is coming to China; however, it is also rumored to be arriving in Korea under the prior branding. 

He also hinted that the device will be lighter, thinner, and larger than the actual Galaxy Z Fold 6. This thinner variant will be released in October and does not support S-Pen. 

For now, the brand is actively focusing on launching the sixth-generation foldable phones, the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6, at the upcoming Galaxy Unpacked event on July 10, 2024.

Published

By


The Samsung Galaxy S25 series, which includes three variants—the Galaxy S25, Galaxy S25+, and Galaxy S25 Ultra—is first in line to debut in early 2025. The Ultra variant of the series is expected to bring significant camera upgrades. 

Even before any official announcement, leaks and rumors have already revealed some of the camera specifications of the Galaxy S25 series. According to a new report by GalaxyClub, the Galaxy S25 will feature a 50MP primary rear camera. On the flip side, the device will use the same 12 MP front camera as its predecessors, the Galaxy S23 and the Galaxy S24. 

The 50MP primary camera and the 12MP selfie camera will also be used for the Galaxy S25+. whereas the ultra variant of the series is expected to feature a camera setup that includes a 200MP primary rear camera, a 50MP telephoto camera with 3x optical zoom, and a 50MP telephoto camera with 5x optical zoom. 

Previously, it was rumored that the Galaxy S25, Galaxy S25+, and Galaxy S25 Ultra feature the Exynos 2500 chip in most markets and the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 processor in China and the USA. Now the new report says that similar to the Galaxy S23 series, the upcoming Galaxy S25 series will also use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 processor since Samsung foundry is facing yield-related issues in the mass production of the Exynos 2500, so Samsung will likely use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 chip in all the countries. 

All three phones will likely run Android 15-based OneUI 7.1 out of the box. Samsung will promise seven years of Android OS and security patches to this series and could also bring a bunch of Galaxy AI features. Reportedly, the Galaxy S25 could have a 4,000mAh battery, the Galaxy S25+ could have a 4,900mAh battery, and the Galaxy S25 Ultra could have a 5,000mAh battery.

Samsung Electronics is collaborating with Worldwide Olympic and Paralympic to offer unique footage using the Galaxy S24 Ultra. 

Olympic enthusiasts get ready for an extreme viewing experience at the Paris 2024 Opening Ceremony on the Seine River and sailing competitions like never before. At the event, Samsung will render its advanced mobile technology and 5G connectivity to offer a closer perspective of these icons’ celebratory and competition moments. 

The Korean giant is convinced that its Galaxy smartphones help people connect with the world more deeply.

Within a month, the Opening Ceremony of the Olympic Games will take place outside of a stadium for the first time. Paris 2024 will see 10,500 athletes float down the Seine River in designated boats for each national delegation. The aim behind this is to be the most open and accessible opening ceremony in history. 

Samsung is adding a novelty at the event by mounting over 200 Galaxy S24 Ultra phones on the athlete boats, offering a close-up view of the athletes and the Parisian scenery. Undoubtedly, the smartphones will capture extreme premium HDR footage of the boat parade. Noticeably, a special 5G network will be set up along the Seine to deliver streaming of the footage to viewers worldwide. This will be the first-ever standalone 5G network in France. 

Weather conditions can be tough during sailing competitions, with strong winds, big waves, and scorching sun. To record premium-quality video and uninterrupted streaming, the Korean giant utilized the Galaxy S24 Ultra’s built-in OIS, boosted transmission power for the signal, and set up relay towers on boats to deliver a smooth connection. Samsung has offered more than 120,000 smartphones to athletes and staff since 1998.
