Woman sues Samsung over Galaxy Note 9 bursting into flames

A woman in Long Island has filed a lawsuit against Samsung after her Galaxy Note 9caught fire inside her purse, the New York Post reported Saturday.
The report brings back ill-fated memories of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, which was infamously recalled twice and discontinued merely weeks after it was released due to its exploding battery.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Catches Fire

Diane Chung, a real estate agent based in Long Island, was in the elevator of a Bayside building on September 3rd when her new Galaxy Note 9 “became extremely hot” after use, reveal the legal documents. As a result, she stopped using the phone and put it inside her purse.
Chung said she then “heard a whistling and screeching sound, and she noticed thick smoke” coming out of her purse.
According to the lawsuit filed to the Queens Supreme Court, Chung tried to empty the purse’s contents on the floor but in the process, she burned her fingers while trying to touch the Samsung phone that had caught fire. The moment the doors of the elevator opened, Chung kicked the burning handset out of the elevator. However, the device did not stop burning until a passerby picked it up with a cloth and placed it into a bucket of water, the newspaper reports.
Chung calls the experience “traumatic” in her lawsuit, adding that the fire left her unable to contact clients and ruined everything in her bag. She is seeking unspecified damages and a restraining order barring the sales of any Galaxy Note 9.
Ironically, the incident comes barely a month after DJ Koh, head of Samsung’s mobile business had promised consumers the batteries on the new Galaxy Note 9 are “safer than ever” and it goes “well above and beyond the industry standard.”
Commenting on the incident, a spokesperson for Samsung told the New York Post that “Samsung takes customer safety very seriously and we stand behind the quality of the millions of Galaxy devices in use in the United States. We have not received any reports of similar incidents involving a Galaxy Note 9 device and we are investigating the matter.”

Due the new iPhones, the tech giant Apple has also brought its new processor, of course, the all-new A12 Bionic SoC. As expected, the new A12 Bionic chip is faster and more powerful than the previous proposal, which was already a threat to the competition.
Now the new iPhones which are about to hit the market, it’s time to evaluate the hardware power and capabilities, in short, the benchmark test score. The first benchmark results for the new iPhone start to emerge and they are fantastic.

The tech giant Apple, as it always did, has minimized the specs of new iPhones. It focused on the core elements, such as the camera and the processor, and left out some information that everyone wants to know, with a special focus on memory and A12 performance against the competition.
With the start of the availability of these items come since the first benchmark tests scores and some important additional information and everyone wants to know scores that the new iPhones have managed to achieve.

iPhone XR

The first results that have emerged are relative to what is thought to be the iPhone XR. This model shares the new and powerful A12 processor. The tests on GeekBench shows that it has reached 4754 points in one core test and 9367 points in multi-core tests.

Compared to the iPhone 8, which will be the comparable model of 2017, it has mixed behavior. The iPhone 8 reached 4219 points in one core tests and 10,107 in multi-core tests, which puts XR above in one core tests and below in multi-core tests.
The information in this test also revealed that the iPhone XR will come equipped with 3GB of RAM, as has been suspected for some time.

iPhone XS Max

In the case of the iPhone XS Max, which also had its test revealed, the results are even higher. The top model has the same components as the rest, but with some extras. In the GeekBench tests, it reached the 4813 points in the tests and 10266 points in the tests of multi-cores.

Here, comparison with previous models is more difficult because the iPhone XS Max comes to open a new category. However, looking at the iPhone X, the values grow. The iPhone X reached 4219 points on one core tests and 10107 on multi-core tests. As for RAM, the iPhone XS Max is above its siblings, as this top model has 4GB of RAM present.
These values again eclipse the Android competition, where we have only 3328 and 8662 points achieved by the Samsung Galaxy S9+. It is now time to wait for the new iPhones to hit the market and to compete these insane values.

Xiaomi, Is Now On Race to Create Truly Foldable Smartphones
Xiaomi, Is Now On Race to Create Truly Foldable Smartphones
After many rumors and speculation that many people and blogger as made, a new report suggests that the era of foldable smartphones may soon be upon us.

Samsung is widely rumored to be working on its own foldable dual-display smartphone, which has long been nicknamed the Samsung Galaxy X (or Galaxy F) by the blogosphere. That device could see a release sometime next year, according to the latest rumors.

But the South Korea tech juggernaut is also already looking to sell its foldable display technology to its competitors. A recent report in ETNews claims that Samsung Display is currently in talks to supply foldable smartphone panels to Chinese-based Android makers Xiaomi and Oppo.

That move would be unusual for Samsung, which typically saves its newest technology for its own products for a period of time before rolling them out to the public.

On the other hand, by introducing a foldable smartphone and then immediately supplying those display panels to other handset makers, Samsung could create a new market segment that is largely dependent on its own display business, Android Authority points out.

It’s still a risky move, as other foldable smartphones could eat into the Galaxy X’s market share. But Samsung could readily become the sole supplier of foldable display panels for most, if not all, Android smartphones next year. That, of course, would significantly boost its Display subsidiary.

Korean research firm Stone Partners estimates that foldable display panel shipments could reach 14 million and be worth about $2.67 billion by 2021. The South Korean tech giant has a lot to gain by offering its own technology to the wider Android ecosystem.

Samsung does have a history of being a key supply chain giant, however. Just look at Apple, who relies on the South Korea company for its OLED display panels in newer iPhones.

Apple, for its part, is also rumored to be working on foldable display technology. The company has applied for a slew of patents that detail different mechanisms and applications related to flexible or foldable smartphone displays.

In any case, it’s starting to look like 2019 will be the year of the foldable smartphone — even if Samsung is the only firm to field such a device at the time.
