Samsung Galaxy S22 series

Samsung Galaxy S22 series was launched last month. The devices saw more popularity and love by users than any other Samsung smartphone to date. All three phones use top-grade internals including hardware as well as software, thus, placing a new standard for premium smartphones.

In a recent development, the company has published the kernel source code for the trio. Samsung launched the Galaxy S22 series in two variants – Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and Exynos 2200. However, the kernel source codes are released only for the Exynos variant.

Kernel source codes are released to comply with the GPLv2 license which is under the Linux kernel. They may be of little importance to regular users, but will certainly be helpful to developers and sufficiently skilled tinkerers who want to push their tools to the limits of their capabilities.

These codes are important details that help developers to build custom kernels and ROMs for devices. Moving on, if you’re a developer, you can now go to the Samsung Open Source Release Center and access the kernel source code for Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+, and Galaxy S22 Ultra.

Samsung Slidable Rollable Phone Prototype

After foldables, Samsung appears to be focussing on an even more futuristic kind of Galaxy smartphone, which can be defined as Rollable or Slidable. This type of flexible display can be rolled inside to reduce the size of the smartphone, while it can also be expanded back to provide a bigger viewing area.

The same Samsung again showcased the recent display exhibition in South Korea, which gives yet another confirmation for its future Slidable or Rollable display smartphone.

Entitled Flex OLED, it is the South Korean tech giant’s most astonishing next-gen product that folds up into an ‘S’ shape or that fold twice inward with two hinges, folding laptops, and slidable expanded from both sides.

In the concept video shared by Samsung, we can see a prototype slidable display smartphone that has an expandable display that can be enlarged vertically, providing a larger viewfinder for the consumers.

Check the video below.

 

Samsung Display is progressively experimenting and developing the organic OLED display for various display devices such as TVs, computers, Laptops, and present-day smartphones.

As of now, we don’t have any official information regarding Samsung’s plans for rollable/slideable display smartphones. As the company has showcased prototypes earlier, it’s obviously confirmed that there will surely be rollable phones launching in near future.

Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus

Samsung introduced the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 at its mid-year Unpacked, and all of our eyes are on the next Unpacked which will bring the Galaxy S23 series. Ahead of the release, tipster IceUniverse shared important information that suggests the Galaxy S23 and S23+ won’t get a new design, camera and display.

According to the tipster, the design, camera, screen and resolution of the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23+ smartphones will be identical to the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+, respectively. At the same time, the source claimed that the bezels of all three models including S23 Ultra will be a little wider, which doesn’t make sense.

The tipster didn’t talk about the design and camera specs of the Galaxy S23 Ultra, which is rumored to be packed with a giant 200MP ISOCELL HP2 lens. However, the Galaxy S23 Ultra is rumored to come with wider bezels, which could be Samsung’s durability expansion decision.

Samsung Galaxy A52s 4 Android Updates

Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G is undoubtedly a flagship-grade smartphone with powerful performance, thanks to its Snapdragon 778G processor. Similar to the Galaxy A52/A72, Samsung promised 3 major Android updates to Galaxy A52s 5G, however, the manager of its UK Twitter account just confirmed 4 updates, which is not valid.

Twitter user Jon Crawford shared the information that his Galaxy A52s smartphone just got the August 2022 security patch to praise Samsung’s support. Following the Tweet, Samsung UK comes up and thanked the user and further reminded him that the A52s support up to 5 years of security updates.

As a regular Twitter post become a thread of official communication, another user Medbuddy asked Samsung about the Android OS updates support for the Galaxy A52s 5G. Samsung UK didn’t stop and accidentally confirmed 4 generations of Android updates for the Galaxy A52s and embedded the newsroom post of the new policy.

Samsung Galaxy A52s 4 Android Updates

Firstly, we’ve rechecked the software updates support of the Galaxy A52s on Samsung’s website, which still promises 3 updates, then we headed for the 4 OS guarantee press release to check if the manufacturer made amendments in the list of devices, but, it’s the same as day one.

According to the information mentioned in the policy, Samsung won’t bring 4 Android updates to the Galaxy A52s smartphone as this guideline applies to the Galaxy A53/A73 and select models that will launch in the future. At the same time, flagships starting the Galaxy S21 series are also listed for the same support.

Due to a lack of information, Samsung UK appears to be doing fake promises to the consumers which are disappointing. We hope, that this mistake will be solved as soon as our voice reaches Samsung’s ears, meanwhile, we would be happy if the Galaxy A52s 5G becomes eligible for 4 OS updates.
