Samsung, a global leader in display technology, is confident of coming up with an industry-leading display technology in its next flagship smartphone, a top executive said here on Wednesday.

According to Harksang Kim, Senior Vice President and Head of Mobile Visual R&D at Samsung Electronics, the company’s next flagship smartphone will have industry-leading, screen-to-body ratio.

This is in line with recent media leaks that the tech giant’s anniversary edition Galaxy flagship will be almost bezelless.

“Samsung is focused on enhancing the size of the display and, importantly, the ratio of the active area on the handset,” said Kim, adding that “our screen-to-body-ratio will be top notch”.

On foldable displays, Kim pointed out that Samsung has been developing the technology since the last four years.

“We have been working on foldable display for the last four years. But we are not focusing so much on the foldability itself but on benefits it can offer beyond a bigger display. We want to offer something beyond tablets in terms of application and solutions,” Kim stated.

He noted that the focus is on security and stability of foldable hardware as simply making a foldable display is not an innovation but just another method for providing a larger screen.

The South Korean tech giant also wants to focus on consumers’ ease of use and convenience.

“By next month, you will hear some official announcements by Samsung Electronics not just on hardware development but also on software and platform preparations as well,” the executive informed.

While Samsung smartphones currently provide two solutions for personal identifications — fingerprint recognition and iris scanning — the company is also working on optical fingerprint recognition sensors.

However, since personal identification is directly linked to personal information and brings potential risks to the consumers, the tech giant is trying to be careful.

“Although we know that there may be delays, we are reviewing optical solutions in terms of in-display finger recognition tech and other solutions,” Kim said.

On cameras, in the future models, the rear cameras will be developed to see beyond what the human eyes can see.

“From the hardware perspective, few years down the road, we believe that rear cameras with their DSLR technology are not just going to capture the environment or nature but beyond what the human eye can see.

“Fundamentally, the rear facing camera technology will be all about communications. For example, when I’m not available, my Augmented Reality (AR) emoji will be communicating on my behalf,” Kim said. (IANS)

Samsung also opened up its own voice-based assistant Bixby, allowing third party developers to build functionalities for the Artificial Intelligence (AI) assistant.

After weeks of teasing, Samsung finally showcased its foldable smartphone at its fifth annual developer conference here that would be mass produced in the coming months.

The foldable phone, which is a tablet when it’s fully opened and a phone when it’s closed, was demonstrated by Samsung’s Senior Vice President of Mobile Marketing Justin Denison on Wednesday, The Verge reported.

However, the smartphone showcased at the Samsung Developer Conference (SDC) is not the final product yet.

“The foldable display lays the foundation for a new kind of mobile experience. We are excited to work with developers on this new platform to create new value for our customers. We cannot wait to see where the technology and collaboration takes us,” said DJ Koh, President and CEO of IT and Mobile Communications Division, Samsung Electronics.

The company has used what it calls “Infinity Flex Display” for the foldable device that lets users open and close it again without any degradation.

“Because the Infinity Flex Display is a next generation platform, Samsung invites developers to participate in this journey from the beginning. Working collaboratively with Google and the Android developer community, Samsung will maximise the potential of this new form factor to create an optimised foldable user experience,” the company said.

The tech giant also announced it would join the notch bandwagon soon.

During the keynote, the firm showed several notch designs that are certainly coming to its smartphones beginning 2019.

Samsung also opened up its own voice-based assistant Bixby, allowing third party developers to build functionalities for the Artificial Intelligence (AI) assistant.

Bixby started as a practical way to use voice to interact with the phone. Now, it is evolving into a scalable, open AI platform to support many devices, including fridge and TVs.

Samsung announced the opening of Bixby Developer Studio, an Integrated Development Environment (IDE), to developers.

It offers access to the same development tools Samsung’s internal developers use to create Bixby Capsules, which is what developers build to add features to Bixby.

“Our goal is to offer developers a robust, scalable and open AI platform that makes it easy for them to launch and evolve the amazing experiences they create for our users,” said Kyunghak Hyun, Product Manager of the AI Product Management Group at Samsung.

“As Samsung’s ecosystem of devices continues to grow, it creates more points of contact not just for Bixby, but for a growing number of third-party services as well. Developers have more ways to reach users, and users get more opportunities to make the most of them,” Kyunghak said.

As part of its efforts to scale Bixby services, Samsung said it would expand support to five new languages in the coming months, including British English, French, German, Italian and Spanish. (IANS)
