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.
Knox Suite is an all-in-one solution, designed for enterprise mobility. It makes it possible to efficiently secure, deploy and manage the fleet of devices throughout their life cycle. This set of solutions is designed to make life easier for IT administrators.
This solution makes it possible to automate and secure the deployment of all terminals on a daily basis, to carry out maintenance thanks to the feedback of relevant information on the use of batteries or business applications or even to take control, remotely, on the system updates through the Knox platform.
These hardened tablets perfectly meet the security challenges of Ain firefighters in terms of data protection and synchronization. Knox ensures that confidential and sensitive data stays safe. All devices are protected at every level, with data isolated and encrypted in real-time.
Samsung joins RISC-V software ecosystem eyeing semiconductor advancements
Eyeing Exynos advancements, Samsung joined RISC-V, an open-source software development project to build and spread an advanced semiconductor ecosystem. Recently, the company announced that it has become a member of the operating board of directors for “RISC-V.”
To be noted RISC-V is an open source software development project launched by the Linux Foundation, an open source non-profit organization. This is an organization launched to develop software using RISC-V, n open source (open) semiconductor design asset (IP, Intellectual Property).

Samsung Biometric Card IC
An innovative payment card technology called a biometric card offers cardholders a secure and convenient way to authenticate themselves at the point of sale (POS) by using their fingerprint instead of a personal identification number (PIN) or signature.
Cardholders don’t need to enter a PIN for high-value transactions, making transactions faster and easier. An added layer of security reduces concerns about the card or PIN theft and increases confidence in using the card, especially when traveling because you don’t have to worry about fraudulent payments even if your card is stolen or lost.
Galaxy S23 Blurry Close-up Camera Explained, Samsung Pledges Software Fix
Samsung’s latest Galaxy S23 series brings some of the best camera smartphones out there. Following the launch, it was noticed that the non-Ultra models of Samsung Galaxy S23 have some issues, causing blurry close-up shots, which are now officially acknowledged.
What’s the issue?
Some Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23 Plus smartphone users noticed that the area around the subject looks a bit blurred when taking a close-up shot. The impact of this problem is limited to both low-end models of the lineup, while the Ultra remains issue-free.
What’s the reason?
Samsung disclosed through its community post that Galaxy S23 and S23 Plus use a 50-megapixel primary camera powered by AI features and machine learning. The blurry close-up problem causes due to the sensor’s bright aperture, which makes stunning Nitghtography possible.
Fix coming in the future!
Samsung not only explained the issue and shared the reason, but also confirmed that the blurry close-up shots problem on Galaxy S23 and S23 Plus is planned to improve (fix) in a future software update. However, when this software update will release, remains a question for now.
If you are experiencing this on your Samsung Galaxy S23 or S23+, there are a few solutions you can try:
- Try taking a picture from a bit further away; if the subject you are photographing is about 30 cm away, move back a hand’s width
- Try to take a photo holding the phone vertically; if you hold the phone horizontally or diagonally, the background may appear blurred.
Why S23 Ultra is unimpacted?
Galaxy S23 Ultra remains unimpacted from the blurry shot issue as its camera automatically switches to the wide-angle camera and activates the focus booster to prevent blur. But do note that the focus enhancer stops working in high-resolution image mode, possibly resulting in a blurry close-up.
