Galaxy S9 update brings bad news for UK Samsung fans

  • Samsung Galaxy J4 Core Running Android Go With 6 Inch HD+ Display 3,300mAh Battery Unveiled

Samsung unveiled its newest flagship mobile chip, the Exynos 9820, today.

Also, a triple camera.

The foldable Galaxy X may be getting all the attention, but Samsung still plans to launch three new entries into its hugely-successful Galaxy S range early next year.

Talking about the CPU, the Exynos 9820 packs 2x 4th gen custom cores, 2x Cortex A75 cores, and 4x Cortex A55 cores. And the multi-core performance is increased by around 15 percent.

Samsung expects Exynos 9820 to be in mass production by the end of 2018.

That efficiency is built in from the ground up, as the Exynos 9820 is an 8nm chipset, which reduces power consumption by up to 10% compared to the 10nm Exynos 9810. Recent reports suggest the price could start at almost $1,800, which means buyers of the device will join an elite and exclusive club while the rest of us wait for the foldable form factor to become more affordable in the coming years.


What is nice about the Ice Blue option is that it is a color gradient, the first time a Samsung flagship smartphone offers such a color scheme.

When it comes to video capture, the Exynos 9820 is capable of something truly special.

As interesting as these details might be, they will remain as rumors for now until they are confirmed by Samsung.

Samsung mobile boss DJ Koh is convinced we need a foldable phone. Here's both the good and bad that you can look forward to when the update lands on your phone.

The FlexPai is rough around the edges but could be the world's first commercially available foldable tablet-phone.

A dual-screen device patent recently filed by Microsoft includes a third screen attached to the devices hinge that can display information in a variety of configurations.
