Samsung Galaxy S10 5.8 inch and Galaxy S10+ 6.3 inch may arrive with Fingertip On Display (FOD) technology.

Samsung is studying the possibility of including once for all the FOD Fingertip On Display recognition technology.

The tech FOD sensor is developed by Qualcomm, Synaptics and Taiwanese Institute of Technology , but Qualcomm`s is the closest to commercialization.

The FOD technology will mean innovation, cost reduction and less weight for the Samsung Galaxy S10/S10+ smartphones.

In addition to FOD, Samsung is considering a Galaxy S10/S10+ with a Face ID function using a 3D sensing camera. Mantis Vision of Israel and Samsung Electronics Institute of Technology are conducting the algorithm development tasks required for the 3D sensing module. 

If Samsung includes the TWO options, finger and face ID recognition, there is no reason to keep the iris authentication technology, which  is two years old from Samsung Electronics. It is relatively unfit for the Galaxy S10, which has to be given 'innovation' in commemoration of its 10th anniversary.

Samsung Electronics has given the development code name 'Beyond' to Galaxy S10 in early May of this year and has been developing samples with partner companies in earnest. In the case of display, the number of inches was confirmed as follows: Samsung Galaxy S10  5.8 inch and Galaxy S10+  6.3 inch.

Samsung new patent shows a futuristic Galaxy smartphone design.

The American patent office USPTO published a patent from Samsung Electronics on June 19, 2018, requesting protection for a futuristic smartphone design. In the patent that was applied for last year in September, the design of a smartphone is shown with an extremely high screen-to-body ratio. This is the design that Galaxy smartphones are waiting for. The edges on the sides and bottom are minimal while also the upper edge is reduced in thickness. In the thin edge there is still room for the speaker and a front camera. 

The futuristic design is not only visible on the front of the device. A second display can still be found at the back of the smartphone. At least, it seems. The patent does not show a description of the design so that this can not be said with certainty. In the illustration, this delineated space is shown as a display.

It is therefore possible that this room is used for something other than a display. However, the front of the device shows that Samsung is working on a Galaxy smartphone with a higher screen-to-body ratio than ever before. Moreover, it is noticeable that there is no physical fingerprint scanner present; not at the front but not at the back.

Is this the real design for the Galaxy S10?

Research Team Discovers a Way to Enhance Plant Productivity, in Korea.

Wild plants (above) and plants that promote increased energy distribution (below). The use of stem genes, which control the development of sieve tubes, can increase the number of sieve tubes. This process promotes energy distribution within plants and increases plant productivity.
Wild plants (above) and plants that promote increased energy distribution (below). The use of stem genes, which control the development of sieve tubes, can increase the number of sieve tubes. This process promotes energy distribution within plants and increases plant productivity.

The National Research Foundation of Korea announced on June 4 that a research team led by professor Hwang Il-doo, professor Cho Hyun-woo and doctoral student Cho Hyun-seop of POSTECH has succeeded in identifying the process of controlling the development of sieve tubes inside plants for the first time.

A sieve tube is a connection path inside a plant. Sugar, which is energy produced through photosynthesis, is distributed to stems, roots, young leaves, and so on through sieve tubes.

The research team found specific protein involved in tubal development in vascular plants such as thale-cresses and tobaccos.

This protein was named “julgi” in Korean, which means “stem” in English.

The research team also developed plants with increased sieve tubes by controlling “julgi” protein in stems, which increased productivity such as seed size and weight by up to 40 percent.

They also found out the specific process of julgi protein controlling the development of sieve tubes.

The research team believes that the stem protein and its control of the growth of sieve tubes of target genes played a crucial role in the evolution of vascular plants, which make up the majority of the earth's vegetation.

"This study has proved a connection between an energy transfer (distribution) capability and productivity in a plant that has thus far been proposed only theoretically," professor Hwang said. "This study is expected to play an important role in solving the problems of food shortage and a drop in plant productivity due to climate change."

The research was carried out with support from the Ministry of Science and ICT, the Basic Research Project of the National Research Foundation of Korea and the Rural Development Administration's Woo Jang-chun project.

The paper on the achievements of the study was published in the Nature Plants, the most authoritative academic journal on plants, on May 28. The June issue carried it as a cover paper.

A Device will control the speed of light.

Korean researchers have developed a device that can control the speed of light.

Korean researchers have developed a device that can control the speed of light. The new device is expected to accelerate the development of next-generation optical communication equipment.

Professor Kim Teun-teun of the Center for Integrated Nanostructure Physics (CINAP) of the Institute for Basic Science (IBS) announced that his team has developed a graphene-based metamaterial device that can control the speed of light, in cooperation with a research team led by Professor Min Beom-ki of KAIST.

Traveling faster than anything in the world, light is the most useful means for data transmission. However, light should be converted into electrical signals to transmit data. In this process, the speed of light is slowed down due to the limitations of electronic signal processors.

By combining graphene with a metamaterial, the researchers have developed a device that can slow down the speed of light and then accelerate it. The new device is expected to help develop next-generation optical communication devices.

A metamaterial is a material engineered to have a property that is not found in nature. Graphene is a single, tightly packed layer of carbon atoms that are bonded together in a hexagonal honeycomb lattice.

Samsung Bixby AI coming in every Samsung device by 2020.

Amid the rise of artificial intelligence (AI) technology, Samsung Electronics has made a strong effort to beef up its presence in the sector.

Since the Korean tech giant released its AI assistant Bixby last year, Samsung has applied the AI to its products ranging from the firm's signature Galaxy S and Note phones to other home appliances.

Moreover, Samsung is taking further steps in AI as it already declared all of its devices will have AI features by 2020. 

To pursue the ambitious 2020 plan, Samsung reportedly will not use AI platforms developed by other companies in its AI-assisted speaker scheduled to be rolled out later this year.

A Samsung official said it has not been long since the company began using the Bixby AI platform in earnest but it will continue strengthening its own AI platform. 

"We have adopted Bixby into our products other than smartphones since early this year," the official said. "It is our strategy to use Bixby in every Samsung device."

This is a somewhat different move from the firm's home appliance rival LG Electronics which has adopted AI platforms made by Google and Amazon. Though LG owns its own AI platform DeepThinQ, the company also uses the Clova AI platform, developed by local internet giant Naver.

In the AI platform market, Google and Amazon are market leaders with their AI platforms Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. Industry watchers said Samsung made the decision to use only Bixby after more than six months of internal studies.

If Samsung can make the plan a reality, Samsung's Bixby will become one of the major players in AI platforms as the company has shipped more than 500 million devices across the world.

Larry Heck, a renowned AI guru who works as a senior vice president of Samsung Research America, said Samsung is positioned to be a leader in the AI business. 

"Samsung Electronics is uniquely positioned to bring this world of connected AI services to life, based on the almost half a billion connected devices the company sells every year," Heck wrote in a contribution on the Samsung Newsroom website in January. "In fact, given the typical lifecycle of a device, there are more than a billion Samsung devices actively used around the world at any given time."

Samsung has not been shy about its desire to become the leader in the AI platform league. Last month, Samsung Research, the firm's research and development (R&D) hub for AI technology, opened three new research centers in the U.K., Russia and Canada. It already has AI research labs in Korea and the U.S. With the five AI research centers, Samsung aims to secure 1,000 of the top workers in the sector by 2020.

Samsung launches new marketing campaing for the Galaxy S9/S9+. Video.

Samsung Electronics Co., which released its Galaxy S9 smartphone earlier this year, is carrying out various marketing programs around the globe to bolster weaker-than-expected sales of its flagship device, industry watchers said Wednesday.

The South Korean tech giant joined forces with Ya Ge, a popular restaurant in Taiwan, showcasing a new menu to promote the new gold edition of the Galaxy S9, which was released in the market earlier this month.

Samsung also introduced the Galaxy S9 Marvel giftbox in China, which comes with smartphone accessories inspired by Marvel superhero characters.

The company also opened the Galaxy Studio throughout major cities in South Korea, where users can try out the new red and gold editions of the Galaxy S9.

The Galaxy S9 posted sales of 1 million units in around 60 days since its official release in March. Industry watchers, however, said the overall performance of the new device lags behind the predecessor, the Galaxy S8 series.

Eugene Investment Co. estimated the annual sales of the Galaxy S9 at 30 million units, lower than Samsung's earlier target of 40 million units.

Following the lower-than-expected sales of the Galaxy S9, industry watchers expect the mobile division of Samsung Electronics to post around 2.3 trillion won (US$2 billion) in operating profit for the second quarter, down 40 percent from the previous three month period.

LG introduces the LG Tromm ThinQ washer F21VBV, with DeepThinQ AI to understand voice commands.

LG Electronics on June 19 released a washer equipped with its artificial intelligence system dubbed “DeepThinQ,” which is capable of understanding users’ voice commands.

The Korean tech giant said the LG Tromm ThinQ washer, F21VBV, is capable of understanding voice-based orders and recommending optimized washing programs for users. 

LG said the new washer is the second home appliance produced by the company that comes with a voice-recognition system, after the LG Whisen ThinQ air conditioner.

The company said once the new product is connected to a Wi-fi network, it can be activated through a person’s voice and is able to deliver information to users.

Connecting to the latest weather reports, LG said the washer is capable bolstering its drain cycle in case of rain.

LG Electronics said it will continue to release more home appliances equipped with the AI technology to improve everyday lives of its customers.
