Samsung Makes Unexpected Promises At Its "Analyst Day"
Posted: November 6, 2013 by Emily Brown
Last month, Samsung was the pioneer in introducing the world's first smartphone with curved display, and now, we have learned the tech giant intends to keep on being called "the First". Apart from talking some serious financial numbers at its big Analyst Day, the Seol-based company saw an opportunity to announce three more planned "first-of-a-kind" efforts, which go as follows:
Highly Increased Resolution of Smartphone Displays
In the next couple of years, Samsung will work on and turn into reality WQHD resolution (2560 x 1440) displays in 2014, and then 3840 x 2106 screens (aka Ultra HD) by 2015. Taking into account that these resolutions will be applied to roughly 5-inch screens, the improvement in quality is very likely to be imagined, rather than actual. In other words, the real improvement will be on the spec sheet.
Smartphones with Foldable Screens
The company, which aims towards "Enabling a Smarter Life" with a number of technological advances, has declared that it will bring fully-foldable screens to its customers some time in 2015. Since no further details were revealed, we left on your imagination to envisage the full capabilities of this futuristic creation.
Devices Called "Fonblets"
Under the term "Fonblet", Samsung promised they will create a new kind of device, i.e., "a large-display phone with a stylus and handwriting support". While some people tend to see them as "Phablets", and to others they are just "large phones", it's the handwriting recognition that lets Samsung give them a brand new name, thus tracing a path for a whole new market category.
