Leaked renders revealed that Google’s upcoming Pixel 8 Pro flagship phone may introduce redesigned camera bar and a flat display. The camera bar matches with the Pixel 6 Pro and Pixel 7 Pro, while all the camera sensors are now placed in a single pill-shaped bar.
Similar to the Pixel 7 Pro, Google’s next flagship phone will have an ultrawide, a wide, and a telephoto sensor, as shown in the leaked renders. However, there’s a new sensor placed beside the LED flash, which remains a mystery at the moment.
Coming to the screen, the Pixel 8 Pro seems to have a flat panel, ditching the legacy of slightly curved sides maintained until the Pixel 7 Pro. Moreover, the display size may be reduced to 6.52 inches along with little thickness reduction.
Google also follows Samsung’s footsteps by taking design inspiration from the latest Galaxy S23 Ultra for the new Pixel 8 Pro. The Korean tech giant has continued the same rear design as the predecessor, but refinements are noticeable, which became an inspiration for Google.
Not that all, Google may have also liked that Galaxy S23 Ultra display with reduced curve edges, making the Pixel 8 Pro flatter, at least in early renders. Flatter smartphone screen benefits in multiple ways such as enhanced durability, better in-hand feel, and mistouch prevention.
Reputed brands like Samsung, Apple, and Google believe that radical design changes are not necessary to happen in the smartphone market every year. On the other hand, Chinese brands are introducing new and new design languages instead of focussing on usability improvements.

French firefighters use Samsung’s rock-solid Galaxy Tab Active 3 tablet
Samsung provided the rugged Galaxy Tab Active 3 tablet to French firefighters to help them in their digital transformation. The motive of this move is to facilitate the missions of firefighters by providing them with all the information about the buildings, in complete safety.
The Galaxy Tab Active 3 rugged tablet comes with IP68 rating, making it resistant to water and dust alongside the military certification MIL-STD 810H to withstand the harshest environments. Besides falls from 1.5m height, the tablet is tested in extreme conditions (humidity, vibration, altitude, freezing, thawing, etc.).
Interestingly, firefighters can keep their gloves on when using the device, by activating the “Gloves” mode, to remain operational in complete safety. Thanks to the Google ARCore certification, Samsung’s rugged tablets make it possible to integrate virtual elements into the real working environment.
Moreover, the Batifire application is integrated with the camera and autofocus feature, due to which firefighters benefit from advanced scanning functionalities while having the possibility of scanning QR codes at the entrance to buildings.

Samsung launches Exynos Connect U100, new mobile-optimized UWB solution
Samsung introduced the first UWB (Ultra Wideband) based short-range wireless communication chipset – Exynos Connect U100. With this product, the company also unveiled the Exynos Connect brand.
The Exynos Connect brand includes semiconductors based on UWB, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi, and strengthens its competitiveness in the wireless communications semiconductor business in preparation for the advent of a hyper-connected society.
Samsung Exynos Connect U100 chip executes a power mode optimized for each operation and is suitable for IoT devices such as mobile devices, electric vehicles, and tags that require long-term operation with low-capacity batteries.
UWB is a short-range wireless communication technology that can transmit large amounts of information quickly with low power over a wide frequency band. It can accurately measure the distance and position between devices within a few centimeters, making it suitable for various fields such as smart keys, smart homes, and smart factories. It is the center of attention.
Samsung Exynos Connnect U100
Samsung Exynos Connect U100 combines RF (radio frequency), eFlash (embedded flash memory) memory, and power management IP (intellectual property) into a single chip, so it can be easily implemented on small devices.
It is equipped with STS (Scrambled Time Stamp Sequence) function to prevent external hacking during communication and is equipped with a secure hardware encryption engine, so it has excellent security performance.
Furthermore, by implementing the Time of Arrival (ToA) and Angle of Arrival (AoA) functions, accurate distance/position measurement and direction detection is possible even in complex environments.
In this way, even when GPS is difficult to use, accurate positioning can be performed within a few centimeters and within a range of less than 5°, enabling position tracking, and virtual reality (VR) or can be applied to augmented reality measurements.
Moreover, it supports the Digital Key Release 3.0 standard of Car Connectivity Consortium which stores the vehicle’s digital key value and shares user authentication.
According to Joonsuk Kim, Executive Vice President of the Connectivity Development Team at Samsung Electronics:
“Our Exynos Connect U100 combines sophisticated ranging and positioning capabilities with strong security to enable hyper-connectivity between people and everyday objects, fueling a range of new applications in positioning and location tracking. Building on our technology leadership in communications technologies, we are committed to driving innovation in short-range communication solutions to transform the way we connect and relate to the world around us.”
