Phone will become laptop, Samsung invents foldable + slidable display



Samsung Slidable Rollable Phone Prototype

Samsung Display has successfully developed an innovative kind of display that combines foldable and slideable OLED. According to Korean media, the company will introduce the foldable + slidable display product at CES 2023, which begins on the 5th.

The South Korean tech giant is going to be the first vendor by showcasing such kind of innovative display that unites both foldable and slidable form factors. Foldable smartphones are already available in the market, while the slidable display has not yet been commercialized.

The company has reportedly planned to unpack a new product that combines foldable and slidable to some invitees at a CES closed (private) booth. As reported, Samsung Display calls it a ‘hybrid’ panel as it combines two functions into one.

ETNews reports, after unfolding the folded screen, the design is in the form of an additional screen that comes out when one end is pulled. In folded condition, the screen expands to 8 inches, and it further extends to 10 inches when unfolded, which can be expanded up to 12.4 inches with slidable method.

The Galaxy S22 Ultra comes with a huge 6.8-inch display, while the display that Samsung invented expands to 8 inches in normal state. It can be maximized to 12.4 inches, which is the size of a tablet or a laptop’s screen. We can assume, this hybrid panel may bring phone, tablet and laptop together in one package.

Samsung aims to bring 1 petabyte (1024TB) SSD in next 10 years



At the China Flash Memory Market Summit 2023, Samsung said that the capacity of a single SSD will reach 1 PB (petabyte) in the next 10 years. The company reportedly revealed that the increasing maturity of physical, logical and packaging technologies will accelerate the development of 3D NAND.

That said, Samsung expects the capacity of a single SSD will be as high as 1 PB (petabyte) in the next 10 years. Moreover, the new technology will also reduce the size of NAND flash memory cells along with increasing the number of layers to allow each layer to store more data.

The South Korean tech giant has promoted the implementation of SSD technology in the past few years. Back in 2016, it was the first to mass-produce 15.36 TB (terabyte) SSD, followed by a whopping 30.72 TB (terabyte) SSD based on 3D TLC in 2017.

Samsung also demonstrated a 64TB SSD in 2019 and then a 128TB prototype SSD based on 3D QLC NAND in 2021, but those devices have yet to enter mass production. If everything goes as the company expects, we will get to see a whopping 1024 terabyte SSD before 2033.

New Samsung all-solid-state battery patent reduces ignition risks



Samsung All Solid State Battery Patent

Samsung (Electro-Mechanics) has filed 14 all-solid-state battery patent with the Korean Intellectual Property Office including the term ‘all-solid-state’ in the title of the invention, discovered by Cypris. The patents that have been disclosed so far are those applied until the end of 2020.

Of the 14 all-solid-state battery patents filed by Samsung, 12 were filed between November and December 2020. At the end of December 2020, there were 11 applications. Since patents are generally published 1 year and 6 months after filing, patents filed at the end of 2021 will not be published until July this year.

By July this year, when the patent filed at the end of 2021 would also be disclosed, Samsung Electro-Mechanics’ direction for developing all-solid-state battery components is expected to materialize. At the shareholders’ meeting last week, an official confirmed: “developing small all-solid-state battery parts.”

All-solid-state battery

  • An all-solid-state battery is a battery in which the electrolyte between the positive and negative electrodes of the battery is changed from liquid to solid.

Since the electrolyte is not liquid, there is no need for a separator between the anode and cathode, and compared to lithium-ion batteries currently in use, the risk of battery ignition can be reduced and the energy density can be increased.

After the regular shareholders’ meeting on March 15, President Jang Deok-hyun told reporters that “the multilayer ceramic capacitor (MLCC) that Samsung Electro-Mechanics makes well is a ceramic product, and (Samsung Electro-Mechanics) has the technology to make it into a solid oxide at high temperatures.”

He added, “based on this technology, we are preparing small all-solid-state batteries or parts for green energy. I will take a separate time to explain when I’m at the point of making a prototype (prototype).”

Google crafting an ultimate Night Sight feature to take on Samsung’s Nightography



Google Pixel Camera Night Sight Google Multi-camera Super Res Zoom

Samsung’s Nightography feature is way too excellent! Powerful hardware and intelligent use of artificial intelligence and deep machine learning turn low-light/night photos captured in the day. Well, Google is reportedly crafting an ultimate Night Sight solution (Multi-camera Super Res Zoom) to challenge Samsung’s Nightography.

According to 9to5Google’s findings, Google is preparing a new feature for the upcoming Pixel 8 Pro, which would combine multiple camera sensors to take even better Night Sight photos. Earlier, the Google Camera app got updated to version 8.8, which brings new codes for experimental features.

As reported, the Google Camera app’s code includes some of the first details for the Pixel 8 series. Since there are no authentic details available for now, the code indicates that the company is crafting a Pixel 8 Pro-exclusive feature for improved nighttime photography.

Google crafting Multi-camera Super Res Zoom?

In the Google Camera 8.8 APK, the “Multi-camera Super Res Zoom” feature above seems to be referred to in the code as “Hawk” and “FusionZoom.” Exclusively for the Pixel 8 Pro, the company is expanding when this special Hawk variety of Super Res Zoom can be used, enabling it for Night Sight shots.

That way, both the primary and telephoto camera sensors of the smartphone would capture the same shot over an extended period of time. Once done, Pixel’s Camera application could possibly merge the shots together to deliver improved Night Sight photos or more detailed astrophotography.

The Android maker improved Night Sight photography with the Pixel 7 Pro flagship. If you zoom in, but not far enough to switch to the telephoto lens, the Google Camera app will take your intended shot with both the main and telephoto cameras to enhance the center portion of the photo with details.

Samsung’s Galaxy S22 Ultra and Galaxy S23 Ultra are unbeatable when it comes to smartphone photography. The company not only installed cutting-edge hardware but also applied futuristic software-derived techniques to make stunning night photography possible.
