Our portal periodically tells about the plans and achievements of all major electronics manufacturers. In this review, we will discuss information related to the Korean Samsung. In the first part, we will talk about new technology that allows the development of LEDs to improve the indoor atmosphere. The second information block will be devoted to information about the changes expected in the Galaxy S9, Galaxy Note 9. After that, we will find out about the original, but demanded service that the Koreans plan to provide in their service centers. Then let's talk about the new hardware on the Galaxy M11.
Korean manufacturer's engineers have created LEDs that can improve human life
Samsung has unveiled its new product - LED elements, designed to improve the atmosphere in the room where people are.
The lighting devices they use can help recharge or relax, improve alertness, sleep quality and melatonin production.
The general name of the LED family is LM302N. They are divided into two large groups: the LM302N DAY, which helps to increase alertness and the LM302N NITE, which helps to relax and prepare for relaxation.
The elements under consideration received the same size 3x3 mm, protection from moisture and heat. They can be really used in any lighting fixture.
When using different types of lighting, the ability to regulate the production of the hormone melatonin appears. He is responsible for the processes of regulation of the wakefulness-sleep cycle. If you increase the concentration of blue light, then the body's production of melatonin will be suppressed and efficiency will increase. Reducing the intensity of this light contributes to the tendency to sleep.
The LM302N DAY and LM302N NITE are capable of adjusting the glow so that those in the room can feel good at any time of the day.
The LM302N DAY operates over a temperature range of 3000 K to 6500 K, which reduces melatonin concentration by 18%.
LM302N NITE functions at 1800 K - 4000 K. This increases the production of sleep hormone.
Both types of elements can be used in one lamp, which, to improve the human life cycle, will regulate the glow as needed.
Software updates for two Galaxy models will receive new updates
The latest version of Samsung One UI 2.1 is currently only available for the Galaxy S20 range and the Galaxy Z Flip. Recently there was information about expanding this list.
Korean insiders claim that owners of not only Galaxy S10 and Note 10 series models, but also Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 9, which were released in 2018, will soon be able to use the new firmware.
However, not all features provided by One UI 2.1 will be implemented in them. Due to hardware limitations, these modifications will not be able to change the refresh rate to 120Hz.
When it will be possible to update the software has not yet been reported. Most likely, devices of the tenth series will first be equipped with a new shell, since older models have only recently switched to Android 10 and One UI 2.0.
Now it will be possible to disinfect your smartphone at Samsung service centers for free
Most people practice good personal hygiene. They shower regularly, wash their hands after using the toilet. At the same time, few people think that any mobile product, including a smartphone, can become a source of microbes. This is especially true now as we live in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.
Samsung took care of its customers and users of products in this matter. Now any of them can use the Galaxy Sanitizing Service, within which the employees of each service center disinfect not only smartphones, but also headphones and smart watches. For this, ultraviolet radiation is used.
The company states that the equipment used during the procedure has been thoroughly tested. Complete destruction of all harmful microbes is guaranteed. This is not dangerous for the devices being processed.
At the same time, representatives of the Korean tech giant do not recommend the use of aggressive and abrasive substances, various chemicals for disinfection. This can affect not only the oleophobic coating of displays, but also the body of smartphones. If the device does not have an IP rating, then liquid substances can enter and damage it.
The service is currently available for free in the following countries: Argentina, Chile, Croatia, Denmark, Finland, Republic of Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Norway, Pakistan, Peru, Poland, USA, Spain, Sweden, USA, Ukraine, Vietnam and Japan ... There are 19 of them.
M11 will receive a new processor
Almost all budget smartphones manufactured by Samsung are equipped with proprietary Exynos processors. Devices from the expensive and middle price segments are based on the Qualcomm platform.
However, sometimes developers make adjustments to their settings. It is reported that the yet to be announced Galaxy M11 will receive a Snapdragon 450 processor with 3 GB of RAM and an Adreno 506 graphics accelerator.
Previously it was stated that the device will be equipped with a display measuring about 6 inches diagonally. A front camera with HD + resolution (1560 x 720 pixels) and a pixel density of 280 ppi will be embedded in the screen.
Android 10 is used here as an OS
The cost of the device and the date of the announcement have not yet been disclosed.
