    [size=5]While Samsung & Apple are playing cat-and-mouse in smartphone technology innovations — the S9 was announced yesterday & while expensive, it is one of most awesome phones on the planet 8) 8) 8)

    Samsung on Sunday finally announced its hotly anticipated flagship smartphones, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. We’ve already told you everything you need to know about the new Galaxy S9 duo, and we gave you your first hands-on look at Samsung’s hot new phones. We also went over pricing direct from Samsung and through every major carrier in the United States, and we took a deep dive into Samsung’s Galaxy S9 specs


    [b]1. “Super Speed Dual Pixel” camera, — by far the most impressive camera the world has ever seen on a smartphone
    2. Super Slow-mo — The camera captures video in 720p HD resolution at 960 fps & because the quality of Samsung’s new Super Speed Dual Pixel camera is so good, the clarity of well-lit Super Slow-mo videos is incredible
    3.AR Emoji improved support
    4. Bixby Live Translation
    5. New “Iris Unlock” for improved security (10X more accurate than facial recognition)
    6. Improved Desktop Support (DeX Pad)
    7. Design and build changes – new 7000 series aluminum, which makes the construction more sturdy overall. The glass is 20% thicker to help prevent breaks
    8. Brighter display – Samsung is the king of smartphone displays with Super AMOLED screens
    9. Performance and power- Improved internal components headlined by the more efficient power consumption[/b]


    is this the first phone with Snapdragon 845?
    I haven’t been keeping with the hardware in smartphones for some time now


    [size=5]QUALCOMM’s Snapdragon CPU family is indeed innovative & very state of art. The “SD” CPUs are fairly new compared to long track history of INTEL, AMD, Motorola, Apple, etc. … As you shared I believe Samsung S9 family is indeed the 1st to use 845 (and some today as noted at bottom of post use the 835 which is an awesome low-powered innovative CPU). And also Xiaomi phones will use this in future, as well as other brands … if we can’t build a better battery — why not build a phone that takes less juice to run — how smart & kool is that 😉 8)

    EXAMPLE of older 835 in low power consuming PCs & tablets (that extend battery life)

    The CPU in the Snapdragon 845 is called the Kryo 385, and like its predecessor, the Snapdragon 835, the 2.8GHz, offer a performance boost of 25-30 percent over those in the Snapdragon 835, while the efficiency cores, which clock in at 1.8GHz, offer a 15-percent performance boost.

    Eventually most flagship phones will feature the Snapdragon 845. Phones that pack the Snapdragon 835 include the Google Pixel 2, the LG V30, HTC’s U11, Sony’s Xperia XZ1, and more. We expect these phones’ successors to make use of the Snapdragon 845.[/size]


    [size=5]QCOM is up over 5.6% today as they truly make some great LOW-POWER chips plus possible merger news with Broadcom 🙂

    Qualcomm ( QCOM): Shares higher in early trade. Qualcomm is urging a deal with Broadcom, asking Broadcom to complete the non-price terms of a proposed deal, so the two sides can negotiate on price.[/size]
