Samsung recently hosted its Tech Day 2022 event where it unveiled new technologies for different industries like an iToF sensor for future camera experience, Silicon technologies for dream displays, and more. At the same time, Samsung also demonstrates PMIC and Security Solutions.
Hwa-Yeal Yu, the Vice President of the Samsung Security and Power Product Development Team, believes that reliability and safety are the most important elements to bring next-generation technology to life.
PMIC acts like a heart pumping blood through the circulatory system in the body. Since the number of devices is increasing constantly, it becomes more important for the PMIC to provide power to each part to allow it to reach its full potential.
Therefore, it introduces Fourth Industrial Revolution that has driven innovation to allow devices to become more portable, compact, and affordable. In the current era, many people own two or more devices, and this trend is driving PMICs to be faster, safer, more energy efficient, and more convenient.
Moreover, other than PMIC solutions, Samsung also explains its Security Solutions saying that it is much like the body’s immune system, which keeps us safe from outside invaders.
Security is the key component that protects our privacy and security across multiple platforms in our phones and other devices. System LSI, on the other hand, has been building up unique and market-proven expertise in anti-tamper and secure storage for the mobile, ID, and financial industries for more than two decades.
For mobile security solutions, System LSI tech has developed its Secure Element technology into an integrated secure AP solution to provide the same robust security as Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level (CC EAL) 5.
Whereas, for payment security, it has anti-tamper solutions that allow only one true owner to be authorized to use the system where Face ID and Fingerprints have been the most popular solutions to date.

Don’t wait for One UI 6 on these Samsung smartphones
It’s not possible for any smartphone maker to provide users with never-ending software support. With Android 13, various Galaxy devices ended major upgrade support, and the same case will happen with One UI 6 for some popular Samsung smartphones.
Preparation to deliver 2023’s Android version is already underway by Google. While Pixel users have started experiencing the Android 14 OS through the Beta Program, Samsung didn’t see that side. However, the company is running the One UI Beta Program, which started on August 10.
This year, popular Samsung flagships such as Galaxy S20 and Galaxy Note 20 series won’t receive the One UI 6. Both lineups have finished their striking era of continuous software upgrades, still, an additional year of security patches is remaining.
Samsung has always remained the king of after-sales services to Galaxy consumers. Presently, the company provides up to four years of major OS upgrades, which will be extended further for the time being. It has also raised the bar of security updates to five years, letting consumers keep their phones longer.
Citing sadly, but don’t wait for One UI 6 on these Samsung smartphones:
- Galaxy S20
- Galaxy S20 Plus
- Galaxy S20 Ultra
- Galaxy S20 FE LTE/5G
- Galaxy Z Flip – LTE/5G
- Galaxy Note20
- Galaxy Note20 Ultra
- Galaxy Z Fold2 5G
Sizzling era ends at 5.1
Samsung delivered the One UI 5.1 upgrade to all flagship smartphones upgraded to the Android 13-based One UI 5.0. The new version means more new features, and there’s no exception with the One UI 5.1 software system.
Customization is at its peak level on the One UI 5.1 and the upgraded capabilities of Good Lock (and family) make you wow! Screenshots no longer collide with photos captured by the camera and creating a cutout of the object is as simple as copying a text!
