Samsung could be ready to unveil its 'foldable' smartphone

  Samsung could be ready to unveil its 'foldable' smartphone Samsung's project to develop a foldable smartphone -- which could be called the Galaxy X -- has been the subject of many online rumors. A project of the kind has already been confirmed by DJ Koh, Samsung's president of mobile communications. However, he also said that this kind of device wouldn't be released until the technology had been perfected. Now, several American media sources, such as Forbes, are reporting that the time could have come for the smartphone to break cover with an official presentation at CES 2018. The upcoming flagship Galaxy 9 could be unveiled sometime around Barcelona's Mobile World Congress at the end of February.

Battery breakthroughs happen all the time, in labs, but rarely make it to devices - until now. Samsung has announced a new graphene based battery that could mean its next Galaxy S9 smartphone will charge up to full in a mere 12 minutes.

The new battery will replace current lithium-ion batteries found in phones, wearables and cars. The next generation battery uses what are called graphene balls which are able to hold 45 percent the capacity of the lithium ones but charge super fast in 12 minutes. This makes them perfect not only for smartphones but also for cars.

Crucially this development is able to stay at a steady and stable 60 degrees celsius. That means it’ll not only charge fast but remain safe when in phones, wearables and cars. After Samsung’s previous record of exploding smartphones, it will need to take no risks with future battery developments.

How next year’s iPhones will finally catch up to Samsung where it matters

  How next year’s iPhones will finally catch up to Samsung where it matters For years, Samsung (and the rest of the Android flagship stable) have consistently trashed the iPhone when it comes to wireless speeds. According to a pair of recent reports, that’s all set to change in 2018. Apple is working with modem suppliers and redesigning the antennas to make sure that this aberration never happens again.

You can find the full paper from Samsung over at Nature Communications. Importantly the process is said to be affordable, so economics should encourage the new battery tech to be adopted swiftly. But it's good to see Samsung at least explore alternatives to the rather degradable Lithium-ion batteries.

Samsung is slated to come out with a smartphone with its battery charging in just 12 mins of its Samsung Galaxy S 9 . It will be a revolution in battery technology, which can be used in smartphones, electric cars and wearables. Most of us want a sleek smartphone with a battery that can charge fast

By pioneering its own battery tech Samsung is able to avoid paying manufacturers and relying on their safety rules. It also means, if Samsung cracks this first, it could be the battery supplier, or licence owner, for this tech. For us that’s good news as it should mean this tech comes to market sooner rather than later.

All this comes from what was actually a mistake initially. Researchers were trying to mass synthesize graphene when they stumbled across graphene balls which are high in strength and conductivity - ideal for batteries.

While we’re hoping to see this in the next Samsung Galaxy S9 we’re aware safety testing of battery tech takes time so are keeping this at a hope for now.

Samsung Galaxy S9: what you need to know

New Galaxy S9 Leak 'Confirms' Samsung's Powerful Choice .
Quietly, with little fanfare, Samsung has publicly fired the gun on its new 10nm system-on-chip production line. Chips that are expected to power the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus flagships. Traditionally Samsung’s Galaxy S handsets have come with two flavours of system-on-chips – Samsung’s in-house Exynos SoC, and Qualcomm’s SnapDragon SoC. Because of the varying frequencies and systems offered by 4G networks around the world, Samsung needs to cover the various options so the Galaxy S handsets can be truly ‘world’ phones. That means mixing up the production with Exynos and Qualcomm.That’s not the only difference.
