In the past 12 years since the launch of the first Galaxy S in 2010, Samsung has maintained its leadership position in the industry by releasing hardware and software every year that breaks the mold of mobile devices. Some of the company’s game-changing products include large-screen smartphones with incredible immersion; electronic pen for efficient work and creativity; the world’s first dual pixel phase focus camera technology.
The release of new Samsung products is an occasion to brush up on 10 innovative Galaxy smartphone technologies that set new standards and change the way users live.
Since 2011, users have no longer needed to carry laptops and writing utensils in their bags. With the advent of the Galaxy Note smartphone, equipped with an electronic S Pen, they have the opportunity to take notes and sketches directly on the screen of a mobile device. The first generation S Pen recognized and supported 256 levels of pressure.
In particular, the Air Command mode appeared in the Galaxy Note 3 model, which provided convenient access to proprietary S Pen functions when you hover the stylus on the screen.
Most everyday tasks in today’s world can be done simply with a smartphone, so the security of mobile devices is especially important. The Samsung Knox platform has become a reliable protection for users who are afraid of information leaks or viruses.
In 2021, the company launched the Samsung Knox Vault security platform with the Galaxy S21 to ensure that ever-increasing amounts of data are fully protected. In addition to the industry’s highest security chipset (ease, embedded Secure Element) and a secure processor that prevents attacks at the hardware level, Samsung Knox Vault provides secure memory that prevents unauthorized access and allows you to secure various passwords and biometric information.
In the early 2010s, there was little hope of salvaging a smartphone after it fell into the water. To change this situation, Samsung expanded the capabilities of smartphones by introducing a water and dust resistant case for the first time in the Galaxy S5 in 2014.
Starting with the 2017 Galaxy S7, Galaxy devices are IP681 rated. This is the highest water and dust resistance rating given to gadgets that can withstand immersion in fresh water to a depth of 1.5 m for 30 minutes. With reliable protection, Galaxy users can now safely use their smartphones in any environment without fear of dust or rain.
After 2015, many users began to abandon their regular wallet, replacing it with a smartphone.
When traveling in public transport, as well as when making purchases, users simply need to touch the payment terminal with their smartphone, and not take out their wallet to pay. Now leaving the house without a wallet has become the norm.
The technology of image sensors in smartphones is advancing rapidly day by day, and today mobile gadgets can capture professional-quality photos and videos.
In 2016, Samsung took smartphone photography to the next level with the industry’s first dual pixel sensor in the Galaxy S7. At that time, such sensors could only be seen in high-end digital SLR cameras with a single lens.
Galaxy S20 is equipped with four cameras, which further expand the shooting possibilities. In particular, the performance of the optical zoom has been greatly improved. Galaxy S20 Ultra users can use the 100x Space Zoom feature to capture clear images of the night sky.
The split layout of One UI with separate viewing and touch areas allows users to comfortably perform all operations with one hand, while all the necessary functions are displayed in a concise manner on the screen, providing the most convenient operation. Such an opportunity will be in demand among modern users who increasingly value the individuality and confidentiality of their data.
In 2019, Samsung pioneered foldable smartphones with the introduction of the Galaxy Z Fold, featuring a 7.3-inch Infinity Flex foldable display.
Samsung’s innovative hinge technology allows you to open and close your smartphone as smoothly as a book, offering users a reliable and durable device with a flexible screen that has been tested and proven to withstand 200,000 fold cycles. In 2020, the company’s Z line expanded with the release of the Galaxy Z Flip, which features a more compact design due to the fact that the screen unfolds vertically.
Samsung not only introduced a fundamentally new form factor, but also offered the latest opportunities for its use. For example, Flex mode allows you to work with the device when it is opened at a certain angle, and in Multi-Active Window mode, the user can open and run several applications at the same time at any time, optimized for the split screen folding screen.
Last year, Samsung introduced the Galaxy Z Fold3 series of foldable devices, which included models with an S Pen, water and dust resistance, and a colorful Galaxy Z Flip3 Bespoke Edition in pastel colors.
