Samsung’s knife-wielding robotic chef is all flash




Last year, we asked whether Samsung was getting serious about robotics. A year later, we’re not any closer to answering the question. This year’s presser played out roughly the same as last on the robotics front — all flash and little productizing to show for it.

Samsung’s approach to robotics thus far appears to be the model of many other big electronics companies. It’s flirtation with a technology that brings some sense of showmanship to the stage and booth. There’s no better example than Bot Chef. I got a preview of the tech in Samsung’s booth this week, pitched as “an extra set of hands in the kitchen.”

You can’t fault the technology for not being ready for prime time, at this point, of course. That’s not really the point yet. The question, however, is how serious Samsung is about bringing a pair of robot arms to kitchens across the globe to sauté tofu and liberally apply Sriracha. I would love to say “very,” and that the different demos were things the company was actively pursuing delivering on these products.

The futuristic theme of last night’s keynote, however, implied that the company is offering up hypotheticals for what a future could look like — not what it will. Even Ballie, which seems a more realistic addition to the company’s smart home strategy is also still very much conceptual. As with last year’s robot demos, I wasn’t able to get an answer from the company about how much of the robot’s functions were autonomous and how much were choreographed. It’s a cool demo regardless. But is it a serious one?

At the end of the day, I hope Samsung is getting serious about the category. The company has tremendous resources and a lot of smart people. If it really takes the leap, it could be a key player in making robotics more mainstream among consumers. For now, however, I’m unconvinced.

Images of Huawei P40 Pro case show a penta camera on the back, flat screen on the front




Last month we saw the Huawei P40 Pro in some renders by OnLeaks, but they were too dark to gather much beyond the outline of the rectangular camera island. Alleged renders for a protective case now offer a better look at the phone.

The camera hump shows five cameras, matching the rumors so far. The one in the top right appears to be a periscope cam (the P40 Pro is supposed to feature 10x optical zoom), though case renders are not usually reliable about such things. From a recent leak we know that the Huawei P40 will have a triple camera instead.

The front of the P40 Pro is quite interesting as well. Probably the first thing you notice is the dual punch hole selfie camera, similar to the nova 6 5G. But also have a close look at the screen – its sides are not nearly as rounded as the ultra-curved “Horizon Display” on the Mate 30 Pro.

You can even see traditional hardware keys on the side, rather than on-screen controls (we know not everyone was a fan). For what it’s worth, the OnLeaks renders also hint at a mostly flat display.

There’s no 3.5mm headphone jack, that’s probably reserved for the non-Pro model. The top side of the phone seems to house an IR blaster.

The Huawei P40 and P40 Pro will be unveiled at the end of March in Paris with the Kirin 990 chipset on board and likely no Google services.
