[List] Samsung AOD (Always On Display) supported Galaxy devices



Samsung Always On Display

Always On Display is an old yet useful feature for those people who don’t like to unlock their phones just to check the time, date, notifications, missed calls, battery level, and other information. It’s also remarkable for those who like to customize their phone in distinct ways and want their phone’s lock screen to look different.

With the Samsung One UI, you can do even more with AOD. The company provides a variety of clocks and designs, you can choose colors and wallpapers or can even select a picture from the gallery to put on your Always On Display screen.

Besides the basics, Galaxy users can experience various widgets on the AOD screen by double-tapping the clock area, can easily play music on the off-screen, or check schedules and alarms. You can also pin text and images that you want to remember every time.

Unfortunately, not every smartphone user can take advantage of this wonderful feature. The companies only provide the Always On Display on the devices that features AMOLED and Super AMOLED screen as they consume less battery.

Many of you might have known the AOD feature and have used it before on your Galaxy device. But some people do not even know whether their phone supports it or not. They must be glad to know that we have created a list of Samsung Galaxy smartphones that supports Always On Display.

Sorry Sony, Apple iPhone set to use 48MP Samsung camera



Samsung Apple Canalys q4 2023

After OLED, Samsung is entering Apple’s CIS supply chain. Ming-Chi Kuo today revealed that Samsung could start shipping 48MP camera for Apple iPhone models as early as 2026. It’s a big blow to Apple’s conventional image supplier, Sony.

For years, Sony has dominated Apple’s iPhone camera supply chain. The entry of Samsung in the Apple iPhone 48MP camera supply is certain in early 2026. The source mentioned that Samsung had to form a dedicated team to serve Apple.

As Samsung’s supply could start in 2026, the iPhone 16 and iPhone 17 may still use Sony sensors. As the Korean tech giant preps for supply, Apple may have considered completing its agreement/contract with Sony for the iPhone camera.

Ming-Chi Kuo’s article reads:

  • Samsung is expected to begin shipping 1/2.6-inch 48MP ultra-wide CMOS image sensors (CIS) to Apple for iPhones as early as 2026, breaking Sony’s years-long monopoly on supplying CIS to Apple. To this end, Samsung has established a dedicated team to serve Apple.

The gap of nearly two years would result in some changes in camera supply. The iPhone maker may also opt for a multi-vendor strategy to freeze prices. Having more than a single supply chain partner empowers the manufacturer during price negotiation.

Kuo notes that Samsung will supply a 1/2.6-inch image sensor for iPhone. The product will have a 48-megapixel resolution. It will likely be used as an ultra-wide camera in future iPhones, while others will still be from Sony.

Honor Magic V3 is here to rival Galaxy Z Fold 6 with thinner design, nice specs



Honor Magic V3

Samsung announced its most anticipated foldable phones on July 10 in Paris. Yesterday, Honor launched the new Magic V3, which challenges the Galaxy Z Fold 6 with a thinner design and some cool specs. The new Honor foldable is considerably thin compared to the phones available.

Honor’s new Magic V3 measures 9.2mm (camera bump not included) in its folded state. It goes further slimmer to 4.35mm when you unfold its 7.92-inch main screen. Oops, there’s a clearly visible hole for the camera on the inner display, with Galaxy Z Fold 6 featuring UDC for years.

The Chinese vendor managed to make its new foldable slimmer with an upgraded hinge of 2.84mm thickness. It won’t break before 500,000 folds while the frame is made from 7-series aluminum alloy. It’s the most highlighting spec that makes it superior to its Samsung counterpart.

Samsung reduced the weight of the Z Fold 6 to 239 grams but the Magic V3 weighs just 226 grams. Honor also brought IPX8 water resistance to the Magic V3, making it the first in the lineup to feature official protection against water insertion.

Honor Magic V3

Galaxy Z Fold 6 packs a 4400mAh battery, but Honor’s Magic V3 has an edge here too. It boasts a 5150mAh silicon-carbon battery with 66W wired and 50W wireless charging. Both devices use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, offering robust performance and efficiency.

Honor Magic V3 comes with a 6.43-inch LTPO cover screen with FHD+ resolution. It’s also rated for 2,500 nits peak brightness and supports stylus input. Notably, the Galaxy Z Fold 6 also supports S Pen input but on the inner panel only with a special pen crafted by Samsung.

In terms of optics, the Magic V3 features a 50MP primary with OIS, a 50MP Periscope with 3.5x optical zoom, and a 40MP ultrawide camera. The cover and main screens also house 20MP front-facing cameras. It lacks under-display camera technology which arrived 3rd time on a Samsung Fold.
