In a bid to disrupt the mid-segment smartphone market, Samsung is set to launch four new smartphones with “Infinity Display” in India in May. All of them will be made at its Noida facility.
Targeted for the millennials, all the Galaxy “J” series devices would come with “Infinity Display” — bezel-less screen that creates an immersive viewing experience, at affordable prices, industry sources told IANS on Monday.
Notably, Samsung’s flagship smartphones such as Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy S9 series feature the “Infinity Display” and now, with the upcoming devices, the display feature would be introduced at lower price points in the Indian market.
The South Korean giant first introduced the “Infinity Display” in Galaxy S8 series in 2017.
Meanwhile, in continuation with its “Make for India” initiative, the new Galaxy “J” smartphones would come with innovations such as “S bike” mode, Ultra Data Saving (UDS) mode and “Turbo Speed” technology.
The company launched Galaxy J7 Duo with dual camera — a first in the popular “J” series — at Rs 16,990 in India in April.
Galaxy J7 Duo comes with rear camera system of 13 MP+5MP setup and 8MP front camera. The device comes with Android Oreo operating system (OS). (IANS)

When Alexa detects that the faucet has been left open, it will send users a notification as well so they can take appropriate action, it added. Amazon previously said at its event in September that it would add the ability to programme Alexa to recognise custom sounds, but that feature has yet to arrive. Having said that, the two new sound detection capabilities not only help users save energy, but they also make it easier to avoid paying for unnecessary charges on your home utilities, the report said.
The retail giant has also announced ultrasound motion detection, which will allow you to set up "Occupancy Routines" on additional Echo devices. This feature allows your smart speaker to detect nearby motion and initiate a routine, such as turning on the lights. It is compatible with many of the best Alexa speakers including the 4th-gen Echo, Echo Dot and Echo Dot with Clock. (IANS/ MBI)
