Samsung Leak Suddenly Reveals New Galaxys Nasty Surprise

Samsung Leak Suddenly Reveals New Galaxy\s Nasty Surprise

Samsung Galaxy A9 Officially Revealed As First Smartphone With Four Rear Cameras

There were howls of protest when Apple left the 3.5mm headphone jack out of the iPhone 7, but it was really just another example of the company being ahead of the competition. Arch-rival Samsung is reportedly going to be the next to eliminate this single-use port from its flagship phones next year.


In short: The Galaxy Note 10 or Galaxy S11 may be the first lineups of Samsung-made Android flagships to lack a 3.5mm headphone jack, South Korean outlet ETNews reports, citing sources close to the Seoul-based company. The tech giant is currently said to be considering such a move, though the reasoning behind the potential move remains unclear. The Galaxy S10 family set to be released in early 2019 will still feature a traditional headphone port, insiders claim, adding that should Samsung choose to remove the connector from its future smartphones, it would bundle all of them with USB Type-C adapters that would allow for conventional earphones to still be connected to such devices, which is what most manufacturers who previously made the same design decision also did.

Samsung revealed its latest smartphone, the Galaxy A9, featuring the worlds first rear camera with four lenses.

Impact: LG is the only major smartphone maker that still doesn’t appear to be considering removing the headphone jack from its high-end devices but even if either it or Samsung were to do so, it certainly wouldn’t be due to industry pressure given how long they’ve defied the trend. Should Samsung, the world’s largest phone manufacturer, truly do away with the connector, such a move would be the final push toward bringing wireless audio solutions to mainstream popularity, though some industry watchers argue Apple was already quite successful at doing so.

The company Thursday said its latest phone will come with 128 gigabytes of storage and up to 512 gigabytes of expandable memory.

Background: The trend of headphone jack removal was started by Apple in late summer of 2016 when the Cupertino-base juggernaut unveiled the iPhone 7 line. Many Android OEMs followed suit almost immediately, though Samsung was so far adamant to do its own thing, going as far as to invest in advertising specifically mocking the lack of the popular 3.5mm connector on Apple’s contemporary handsets. Even Samsung’s first foldable smartphone that’s expected to launch next month under an entirely new product lineup is widely rumored to be featuring a headphone jack.

The phone also features its Bixby virtual assistant, payment service Samsung Pay and fitness tracker Samsung Health. It will come in three different colors — Caviar Black, Lemonade Blue and Bubblegum Pink.

“As a global leader in smartphone innovation, we understand the demand for meaningful innovation in a fast-paced world driven by visual communication,” said DJ Koh, president and chief executive of the IT and mobile communications division at Samsung Electronics.

Amazon is now offering a bundle deal that includes a 512GB Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and a free Samsung Gear S3 Frontier smartwatch. The Galaxy Note 9 is unlocked and comes with a U.S. warranty. This deal applies to both the Ocean Blue and Lavender Purple versions of the Note 9.

“Building on our legacy in smartphone camera development were introducing next-generation technology across our entire Galaxy portfolio to give more consumers the opportunity to experience cutting-edge innovation.”

Do keep in mind that this deal from Amazon is a “Deal of the Day” offer, so you don’t have long to take advantage of it. You can get a closer look at the deal at the link below.

Earlier this year, Koh told CNBC the company was planning on including cutting-edge techin its mid-range Galaxy A line of smartphones, even before it does in its high-end ones. Koh also said the firm was set to reveal its rumored foldable smartphone this year.

Background: Samsung traditionally uses Qualcomm’s silicon for Android flagships sold in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and China, whereas it delivers Exynos devices to all other markets. As it has been years since the company last deviated from that formula, it’s unlikely that the Galaxy S10 line will end up being an exception to the rule. What will change is the lack of a flat-screen option that’s been missing from Samsung’s flagship ranges since early 2016 and the Galaxy S7 series. Samsung is hence reported to be planning to offer two 5.8-inch Galaxy S10 models, one with a single camera and a flat screen, and another one featuring a dual-camera setup and a curved display. The direct successor to the Galaxy S9 Plus is instead said to be featuring a 6.44-inch curved screen.

Many watchers of the company were also anticipating the unveiling of its quad camera. Leaks emerged showing a picture of the phones rear on Wednesday.

The phone includes a main rear camera with 24 megapixel resolution and autofocus, a telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom for detailed close-ups and long shots, an ultra-wide lens with scene optimization and artificial intelligence-powered scene recognition, and a depth lens aimed at letting users manage a photos depth of field and focus. The selling point of a camera with four lenses is that a photographer is able to alternate between different lenses that enable specific features, such as photos taken from a long distance or panoramic shots.

Impact: Samsung’s Galaxy S10 series is likely to end up being the company’s most varied flagship lineup to date. Between three screen options, two SoC variants, and at least two memory configurations for every display alternative, not to mention a handful of colors, Samsung’s next high-end smartphone family is likely to offer something for everyone. The South Korean tech giant’s next Android flagships are expected to be announced in the first quarter of 2019, most likely at the next iteration of Barcelona-based MWC scheduled to start in late February.

Samsungs Galaxy A9 is a step up from its A7 model, which was the companys first phone to include a triple-lens camera on the back. A number of competitors, including Huawei and LG, have also released triple-lens cameras on their phones.

The announcement follows the release of Samsungs high-end Galaxy Note 9 in August, its most expensive phone to date, retailing at $999.99 for a standard version and $1,249.99 for one with more storage.

Last week, the firm released its earnings guidance, predicting it would be on track to score record profits in the third quarter. It has struggled due to a slowing global smartphone market, and said in its second-quarter earnings statement that operating profit for the mobile business dropped 34 percent from the previous year.

The likes of Samsung and U.S. rival Apple — which unveiled its new high-end iPhone models last month — have also faced increasing competition from rising Chinese competitors, such as Huawei, Xiaomi and ZTE.
