SAMSUNG PATENT SHOWS A POSSIBLE GALAXY S11 DESIGN WITH A LARGE SCREEN

Published

on

In the fight for design, we have seen quite interesting designs in 2019. Several foldable devices have been presented. The most important being those announced by Huawei and Samsung. Today again we can talk about phone designs that seemed impossible a while ago. Samsung has presented a new patent for a device with an expandable screen.

A special feature of this model is the possibility to extend the width of the phone. After which the screen surface is estimated to be increased by around 50%. There is, unfortunately, no detailed description included that answers the question of how this smartphone can be pulled out. The images do show that the screen on the right is enlarged. The frame border around the screen also shifts partially, so that the flexible display remains well protected against external influences.

It is not the same as foldable phones, because at no time the screens of this prototype are folded as in the Galaxy Fold or Huawei Mate X. It is too early to talk about a real device, although Samsung wants to bet on something like this according to its patent.

At the moment, the mobile industry is going through a time when designs take a big part of the client’s decision. Brands like Samsung are changing some designs in the high range. This year they have included screen holes in the Galaxy S series. Join GizChina on Telegram

THIS COULD BE THE SAMSUNG GALAXY S11 DESIGN

The design patent was filed by Samsung Electronics at the end of 2018 with the KIPO (Korean Intellectual Property Office). It was approved at the end of May, after which the patent was publicly published on 24 June 2019. There are 14 sketches on which a modern designed smartphone can be seen. With the so-known edge display from Samsung.Read Also:  Samsung Galaxy Note 10 to hit South-Korea stores by August 23

The patent that Samsung has filed is official and approved. This means that the company can manufacture a device similar to what is shown in the images. There are several reasons to present the patent of a project, so we do not know if Samsung is willing to launch this terminal or simply wants to safeguard an idea.

In the images, you can see perfectly the idea of ​​the company. Instead of folding the screen this new device would have a system of rails to move a secondary screen. It may seem very futuristic, although it really is just another mechanism, like the one we saw for the folding terminal.

Some media are beginning to say that it is the Galaxy S11, something very unlikely. Samsung may launch something similar in 2020. but much should change things to be in the next releases of the Galaxy S series.

The idea of ​​the patent is interesting because when you need more space on the screen you just need to expand the screen. The problems we have seen in the Galaxy Fold would not affect this device. Because the durability could be greater by not having a flexible screen.

Even so, it is early to be able to talk about this device in a real way. Samsung has simply presented the patent and it will not be for a long time when it can confirm or deny the existence of such a mobile.

HMD working on a much cheaper Nokia 5G phone, set for 2020 release

Published

on

By

It seems like most major brands have at least one 5G phone out on the market, but HMD Global is one notable exception thus far.

The Nokia brand licensee hasn’t released a 5G phone just yet, although there are rumors of a 5G flagship. But HMD Global chief product officer Juho Sarvikas told Digital Trends that it’s planning to release a more affordable device in 2020.

More specifically, Sarvikas told the outlet that this Nokia 5G phone could retail for roughly half the price of current 5G devices. He presumably means half the price of $1000+ 5G devices from HuaweiLG, and Samsung, rather than half the price of Xiaomi’s €599 (~$664) Mi Mix 3 5G.

“We see a particular opportunity for us in bringing 5G to a more affordable segment as we enter the market,” the HMD representative was quoted as saying by Digital Trends. “I would say affordable in relation to what’s available today. I would love to see us at half of the price where you have 5G today.”EDITOR’S PICK

In any event, a $500 to $600 Nokia 5G phone would be more accessible to the general population than a $1000 device and could help 5G devices gain traction. This 2020 launch window is also noteworthy as we’d expect way more countries to offer 5G networks by then. HMD probably won’t be the only company offering cheaper 5G phones next year though.

The first wave of mobile technology is usually pretty expensive to begin with, but we generally see a noteworthy drop in price as the months and years go by (see multi-camera phones, for one). So who knows, by the time we see a $500 to $600 Nokia 5G phone, we could see a $300 or $400 Xiaomi or Huawei 5G device too.

The OnePlus TV is coming in September, but maybe not to you

Published

By

The OnePlus TV is coming next month, founder Pete Lau revealed today — just one year after the phonemaker first announced it would build a TV set.

While Lau’s blog post doesn’t confirm any juicy technical details, such as whether they’ll run Android TV and range between 43 and 75 inches diagonally — as filings with the Bluetooth SIG revealed earlier this month — he does say the TV will first be available exclusively in India, and it sure sounds like it could take some time to hit other parts of the world.

“We are also working hard to launch OnePlus TV in North America, Europe and China regions as soon as we establish partnerships with most of local and regional content providers,” he writes.

Based on previous filings, the OnePlus TV for India is likely to have a 43-inch panel, while we can probably expect a 75-inch model in the US and China.

While OnePlus has the reputation of a startup and building TVs might seem…ambitious…it’s worth remembering that OnePlus is an arm of the same BBK Electronics that also owns Oppo and Vivo.
