Samsung previews several innovative features from the 2021 Galaxy smartphone lineup
In a new preview article, Samsung’s President & Head of Mobile Communications Business Dr. TM Roh is offering some more details on the features expected to make their way on next year’s Galaxy mobile devices. It looks like Samsung will be adding quite a few revolutionary advancements related to 5G, AI and the Internet of Things and is all for offering a tailored mobile experience.
One of the main focuses for the 2021 Galaxy lineup will be the quality of the video capabilities. “Whether you prefer to edit footage like a pro or just want intelligent, multitasking lenses to do the heavy lifting for you, the Samsung Galaxy will be more than ready to meet the demands of the video-obsessed in 2021. When it comes to advancement in this space, it’s going to be an epic new year.”
Artificial Intelligence will also play an important role. The next gen phones will feature “highly advanced on-device AI capabilities [...], enabling our devices to continually learn from daily activities and routines to take better pictures and videos, maximize battery life and storage space, optimize displays and much more.”
Samsung will continue to push for the adoption of the UWB (ultra-wideband) standard that allows a wide range of devices to connect intelligently and perform a broad set of functions. This is a more advanced version of the NFC standard and can offer highly accurate positioning in large, busy indoor areas, enabling handhelds to pinpoint other compatible devices. “Soon, we’ll be rolling out incredible connectivity capabilities that will transform the way you open doors and enable seamlessly integrated car experiences that make personalized car connectivity a part of your digital life. We’re also making it easier to quickly locate the things that matter most, from your keys to your wallet — even your family pet.”
We can also expect more affordable foldable devices with powerful video capabilities: “we’ll be expanding our portfolio of foldables, so this groundbreaking category is more accessible to everyone. And while we’re already known for our revolutionary cameras, we’ll never stop trying to outdo ourselves — so be on the lookout for super-intelligent, pro-grade camera and video capabilities in 2021.”
Last, but certainly not least, Samsung semi-confirms the inclusion of the S Pen support on devices other than the Galaxy Note: “We’ve also been paying attention to people’s favorite aspects of the Galaxy Note experience and are excited to add some of its most well-loved features to other devices in our lineup.” Could this be the end of the Note series?
