Samsung found guilty of infringing on 4G technology patents owned by Huawei

Back in May 2016, Huawei filed a lawsuit against Samsung in China for infringing upon some of its patents. After 8 months, the Chinese court finally ruled and its decision isn’t good at all for Samsung.

The South Korean company was found guilty of infringing on two 4G standard essential patents related to telecommunication technology and equipment owned by Huawei. Moreover, the court found that Samsung delayed the negotiations on purpose probably because it knew it infringed on those patents.

Apparently, this was a very complicated case since it took the …

Samsung brought 'almost finished' foldable Galaxy X to CES, 7.3" display in tow

Where there is smoke, there is probably fire, and we’ve been hearing about Samsung’s foldable phone in the last two days more than in the last two months. Turns out that Samsung has actually brought the phone, and showcased it to interested partners at the CES 2018 expo.

Images from Samsung patent application allegedly show the foldable Samsung Galaxy X

Just the other day, we passed along some more information about the foldable Samsung Galaxy X. One report stated that the device will look like a phone at rest, and when unfolded, it becomes a tablet with a 7.3-inch screen. Yesterday, the President of Samsung’s Mobile Communications Business, DJ Koh, said that issues with the UX have forced Sammy to delay the launch of the Galaxy X to 2019.

Today, sketches of the Samsung Galaxy X have been released by WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization). They are from a filing made by Samsung back on June 14 of last year. The product has one …

Google's Portrait Mode has been ported to most Android phones, including Samsung Galaxies with Exynos processors

While everyone out there is busy simulating large camera apertures and shallow depth of field by using two cameras and some crazy algorithms, Google did what it does best when it released the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL and doubled down on the crazy algorithms, sans the multi-camera modules. Essentially, Google brought Portrait Mode to its phones without the need for a second sensor — it just uses machine learning to split and analyze the data from the sensor of its primary camera.

Now, if you own a phone with a single main camera, like the Galaxy S7 or S8, or if you have one of LG’s fisheye-bearing …

Samsung decides to enable FM Radio chips in its smartphones sold in the US

Samsung has just announced a partnership with NextRadio that will see that all its future smartphones will have their FM Radio chips enabled in the United States. LG made a similar move last year for the same reason, so Samsung felt like it needed to even the scales.

According to an official statement, Samsung is the newest smartphone maker that supports NextRadio by unlocking the FM Radio chip in all the upcoming mobile phones in the United States and Canada.

Unfortunately, that probably means the decision doesn’t apply retroactively, so many of the smartphones …
