Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2

Samsung is planning for a new camera technology for its upcoming Galaxy Fold 3 that is an under-display camera (UDC). This new technology will make the camera hidden under the display providing users with more space.

According to the news coming from ETNews, the company has already started working on the UDC technology and will be using it in the next generation foldable device that is the Galaxy Fold 3.

Samsung will be using two different technologies to implement the under-display camera in the smartphone. Firstly, the display suitable for the UDC that will be developed by the Samsung Display, and second is the image sensor which is a responsibility of Samsung Electronics Systems LSI.

By using both of these technologies Samsung will install the UDC under the screen of the next-generation foldable device.

 

Currently, the Galaxy foldable devices come with a hole punch camera in the front that may be replaced with the under-display camera in the upcoming foldable device. Although, this technology might decrease the camera quality as the camera will be placed under the display which may prevent the light to reach the lens.

But Samsung has a solution for that too, the Korean tech giant will use a special kind of display in these phones to maintain the quality of the image captured by the front camera. The main motive behind using UDC is to provide the users with an uninterrupted bezel-less display for a better smartphone experience.

As per the previous report, Samsung will launch the next foldable smartphone with many new and innovative features such as UTG (Under Thin Glass) display technology, S-Pen, and more. The next-generation of foldable devices will be launched next year after the company unveils its Galaxy S21 series.

Google Play Store is rolling out a significant update regarding the app and in-app payment. Android’s native app market has a vast range of applications and games for free. However, there’s a paid app category as well, which users found worth buying as per their preference.

According to the info, the Google Play Store has added a button that lets you create a payment link while purchasing an app or in-app item. You can use this link to ask someone else for payment on your behalf. It’s starting to roll out in India, with expansion expected gradually.

The user who taps the button is warned that the person who’s paying has to know their full email address, and can see the item that’s being purchased. Notably, app developers don’t have to do any additional work to support Google Play’s new “ask someone else to pay for this item” button.

A system share sheet will be displayed to share the payment link through a range of apps and services. Once generated, the payment link will be valid for 24 hours. The payer will have to make successful payments within 24 hours to buy an app or in-app stuff for the sender.

Samsung Galaxy Ring Honor

Samsung will be releasing its Galaxy Ring device in July this year. Potential consumers may have been concerned about picking their ideal size. Well, Samsung will likely offer a Sizing Kit that will be delivered before the Galaxy Ring so you can pick the size.

Earlier this year, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Ring at Mobile World Congress. As the formal release is scheduled for July, the company is already working on consumer convenience. As everyone doesn’t know their ideal ring size, Samsung prepared a pretty interesting hack.

Leaker EvanBlass revealed that Samsung would ship a Galaxy Ring Sizing Kit to potential buyers. If you are interested in purchasing a Galaxy Ring and unsure about the ring size, you will get a Sizing Kit upon ordering the Galaxy Ring and choosing the “I don’t know my size” option.

Once done, you will receive sample rings, letting you find the best size for your preferred finger. Later, you can pick the preferred size and confirm the order to get the Galaxy Ring delivered. It is expected that the Ring will be available in a total of 9 different sizes.

Samsung might launch Galaxy Z Flip 6 Slim and Galaxy Z Fold 6 Slip GalaxyClub reports. While the company is marching towards its July Unpacked, rumors about new Slim models are surfacing now.

RossYoung hints that Samsung might introduce a Galaxy Z Fold 6 Slim. It could have a larger display than the regular phone and lack S Pen support. This variant could hit the market later this year in the fourth quarter.

The Z Fold 6 Slim is model-numbered Q6 Slim, while there’s also a B6 Slim. B6 is the model number of the upcoming Z Flip 6, with Slim also expected. These rumors point out that the affordable foldables might be Slim.

At present, we don’t have any idea of the specifications of the Slim foldables. Earlier, it was reported that Samsung was heavily shocked by the reduced thickness of foldable phones released by Chinese vendors specifically Huawei.

It looks like the Korean tech giant has decided to trim some key specs in order to make foldables thinner. Those who want pro-grade specs would have option to go for strategic models, while Slim variants would extend the choice.
