The Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra was photographed from outer space, this is the result

Samsung shows off the capabilities of the Galaxy S24 Ultra camera in a unique way. The latest flagship cellphone from Samsung was flown into the stratosphere to take photos from extreme heights.

Techviral reports Samsung installed four Galaxy S24 Ultras into specially designed carbon fiber cages, which were then placed in four different helium-powered balloons.

These balloons were flown from the Grand Canyon, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and the Sierra Nevada Mountains to capture the diverse landscape of the west coast of the United States.

The balloons carried the Galaxy S24 Ultra to a height of 120,000 feet or around 36 km. Technically, the Galaxy S24 Ultra does not reach outer space, the limit of which is 100 km, but the distance reached is quite high because you can already see the curvature or curvature of the Earth.

The hydrogen that powered the balloons gradually ran out, and after a few days the four Galaxy S24 Ultra slowly descended to Earth with the help of a parachute, as quoted from Android Authority, Thursday (7/3/2024).

Currently, The Samsung Galaxy S24 Cellphone Camera Is The Best

During several days in the stratosphere, the Galaxy S24 Ultra took more than 150 photos using the ultrawide camera and main camera at 1x, 3x and 5x zoom. The resulting photos can be seen below:

The Galaxy S24 Ultra camera managed to clearly capture the darkness of outer space and the curvature of the Earth. This cellphone can also take photos of various geographic features on the Earth’s surface, such as rivers, canyons and snow-covered mountains.

The Galaxy S24 Ultra is the most expensive and most sophisticated cellphone in the latest Galaxy S line. This cellphone is equipped with a 200 MP main camera and optical zoom of up to 5x.

The Galaxy S24 Ultra also supports Space Zoom 100x which has been part of the Galaxy S line since it was first introduced on the Galaxy S20 Ultra. If this feature is usually used to photograph the Moon, this time the Galaxy S24 Ultra was used to photograph the Earth from a height.

Comparison of Oppo Find N3 Flip and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5

Even though it has been around for a long time, not many cellphone manufacturers are working on folding screen cellphones. For example, in folding screen phones with clamshell models currently, there are only two big names playing, namely Oppo and Samsung.

From Oppo, the newest variant is the Find N3 Flip, while from Samsung the newest is the Galaxy Z Flip 5. What is the comparison between these two folding screen phones? Come on, take a look at the following review.

Design

In terms of dimensions, at first glance, these two phones look similar. However, if you look in more detail, the Z Flip 5 is indeed smaller and lighter than the N3 Flip, there isn’t much of a difference. The thickness of the Z Flip 5 when closed is 15.1mm and 6.9 mm when open.

Meanwhile, the N3 Flip is 7.8 mm thick when opened and 16.5 mm when closed. The weight is 9 grams apart, namely the Z Flip 5 is lighter at 187 grams.

Then the outer screen. Oppo and Samsung carry different styles in this section. Oppo uses a screen with a conventional shape, with a 3.26 inch AMOLED panel. Meanwhile, Samsung “finished” the outside with a 3.4 inch screen, except for the area for the camera module.

The N3 Flip’s smaller screen makes it more comfortable to operate with one hand. Then the interface feels more interactive and supports more applications that can be operated directly from the outside. Even though Samsung does provide the Good Lock application to bring more applications to the external screen, the setup process is quite complicated.

Hinge

Well, this hinge can be said to be one of the most important components of a folding cellphone. And, Oppo claims that the Flexion Hinge on the N3 Flip is made of stainless steel material, and is promised to be strong when opened and closed up to one million times. Meanwhile, Samsung only promises that the Z Flip 5’s hinge will last 200 thousand times opening and closing.

Flexion Hinge N3 Flip also creates screen crease marks that are less visible than on the Z Flip 5. The crease marks are of course still visible, but they are clearly more minimal. Oh yes, both the N3 Flip and Z Flip 5 screens can be closed tightly without any gaps.

Screen

The N3 Flip uses a 6.8 inch LTPO AMOLED panel, slightly larger than the Z Flip 5 which uses a 6.7 inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X. Both have FHD+, 120Hz and HDR10+ resolution. However, on paper, this Samsung screen has a higher brightness level, namely 1,750 nits compared to 1,600 nits on the Oppo.

System on a chip and battery

The system on a chip (SoC), or commonly referred to as the processor, used by these two cellphones comes from different manufacturers. Samsung chose Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 from Qualcomm, while Oppo chose Dimensity 9200 from MediaTek.

Both use 4nm architecture, LPDDR5X RAM, and UFS 4.0 storage. The N3 Flip RAM has a capacity of 12GB, while the Z Flip 5 only has 8GB. How’s the performance? From Tech Viral testing, the AnTuTu Find N3 Flip score reached one million. So, even though it is a folding screen cellphone, its performance is still fast and you can even play heavy games like Genshin Impact smoothly. And of course, you can get through daily use without slowing down, with satisfactory battery life.

In the battery sector, the N3 Flip is quite superior because it has a larger capacity battery and greater charging support. Namely 3,700 mAh versus 4,300 mAh, and 25W charger versus 44W. However, the Z Flip 5 supports wireless charging up to 15W and reverse wireless charging 4.5W. Another advantage of Oppo is that it includes a charging adapter that is much larger than the 65Watt power the device receives.

Camera

In this section, it must be admitted that Oppo has quite a big advantage. The three cameras on the N3 Flip were designed by Hasselblad, and consist of a main camera with a 50MP Sony IMX890 sensor with OIS, a 48MP ultrawide camera with a 114 degree field of view, and a 32MP portrait camera with 2x optical zoom. Then the selfie camera is 32MP.

Meanwhile, the Z Flip 5 still has a camera system similar to the previous Z Flip series. Namely a pair of 12MP cameras on the back for the main camera (with OIS) and ultrawide, as well as a 10MP selfie camera.

With relatively the same price, namely IDR 15,999,000 (12GB/256 variant on the Find N3 Flip and 8GB/256GB on the Galaxy Z Flip 5), these two cellphones have their own advantages and disadvantages. However, we think the Find N3 Flip provides a more enjoyable user experience.

Yes, in terms of the SoC used, the Z Flip 5 benchmark results are slightly superior, but that doesn’t mean the Find N3 Flip is a slower cellphone. The reason is, in the tests we carried out, Genshin Impact with high settings and a frame rate of 60 could be run smoothly by the Find N3 Flip. Oh yes, the battery is bigger and charging is also faster.

Shock! Samsung Shows Off Galaxy Ring Smart Ring

Samsung has long marketed smartwatches and wearable devices. However, at the end of the Unpacked event which launched the Galaxy S24, a glimpse of Samsung’s next wearable device product, namely the Galaxy Ring, was shown.

This Galaxy Ring looks like a ring. In fact, smart rings are nothing new, but they are not as popular as smart watches. The Oura ring, for example, is a favorite of celebrities like Kim Kardashian, and the Evie smart ring from Movano was designed with women’s health in mind,

From the information provided, the Galaxy Ring seems to be one part of Samsung’s strategy to create a network of devices that can provide information to the Samsung Health application, for a more complete picture of user habits.

At first glance, the Galaxy Ring looks like ordinary jewelry, until you look at the tiny sensors and electronics inside. Digital Health Samsung Research, Matthew Wiggins said that the Galaxy Ring is a smart ring that is equipped with various features commonly found in the Samsung Health application.

The Next Gen Of Galaxy Samsung

“This is the Galaxy Ring, a device we created for a better life, as well as a device to access various Samsung-style health features in the future,” added Wiggins.

There’s still a lot that’s unknown about the Ring, like when it will launch, how much it will cost, what type of sensor it will have, and what health metrics it will collect. But the Ring is another means for Samsung to carry out its health strategy.

The ring is circular and black. Since it is a smart wearable device, it will likely be able to track a number of health metrics just like a typical wearable device. And because it doesn’t have a screen, its battery life should be better than a smartwatch.

This Unique Casing Brings the iPhone a BlackBerry Flavor

The days when the BlackBerry was the dream smartphone are long gone, but perhaps some still miss it. Well, a new case for the iPhone brings one of BlackBerry’s most beloved features, namely a physical keyboard.

It’s called Clicks, created by a company founded by two famous content creators, namely Michael Fisher (MrMobile) and Kevin Michaluk (CrackBerry Kevin). Clicks is basically a physical keyboard for the iPhone.

Clicks can be ordered for USD 139 for the standard iPhone and USD 159 for the larger iPhone. This Clicks keyboard has a bold design. The flagship color, BumbleBee, is bright yellow which contrasts nicely with the black keyboard. The casing is made of silicone to make it easier to insert the iPhone and also easy to hold.

Clicks doesn’t require Bluetooth or batteries to operate, relying solely on iPhone power. Indeed, this iPhone casing makes the device very tall like a remote. The good news, quoted by Tech Viral from CNN, Friday (12/1/2024), is that the button is easy to click and is large enough to be easy to press.

The keyboard position is a bit odd. Users have to slide their hands down slightly to put it on. However, it is likely that users will eventually get used to it.

By using a physical keyboard, users will get more screen space. That’s because when it’s plugged in, iOS knows not to show the virtual keyboard when tapping the typeable area.

Presumably, this case is suitable for those who are big fans of physical keyboards and want one on their iPhone. If you miss the days of texting with a BlackBerry keyboard or aren’t a fan of virtual keyboards, this case might be for you.

Want to upgrade your cellphone? Take a peek at 3 reasons the Exynos chipset is worth a look in 2024!

Choosing a chipset is one of the things that users who want to upgrade their smartphone pay attention to. The reason is, everyone wants to have a cellphone with top performance, so the chipset that is the ‘brain’ of a smartphone must be tough and agile.

Needs such as playing games, opening social media, and the potential for installing a high-quality camera are influenced by choosing a quality chipset. Therefore, every chipset manufacturer continues to make improvements to meet the increasingly crowded smartphone market.

One of the chipsets that you can look at in 2024 for those of you who want to replace your smartphone is Exynos. The chipset is made by Samsung and is used for their products such as smartphones, tablets and several smartwatch product lines.

If you are interested in trying the toughness of Exynos, here are 3 reasons that can convince you to buy a Samsung smartphone in 2024.

1.  Continues to Regenerate

Users who follow chipset developments on the market are clearly not surprised by how quickly each manufacturer introduces its newest product. Of course, with improvements to the shortcomings in the previous series.

Samsung also does the same thing. In 2024, this South Korean company will reportedly release the Exynos 2400. They have leaked this chipset at the LSI Tech Day event which was held in the United States some time ago.

The Exynos 2400 is based on the AMD RDNA 3 architecture with the Xclipse 940 GPU, which is predicted to have extraordinary quality improvements in terms of visuals, performance and graphics. So, this flagship class chipset can be used as a mainstay next year.

In addition, the Exynos 2400 delivers up to 1.7 times improved CPU performance, accompanied by 14.7 times increased artificial intelligence performance. The Exynos 2400 is made using Samsung’s 4nm LPP+ process. The CPU is said to have 10 cores with a 1+2+3+4 configuration, and all cores use the ARMv9 architecture.

2. Support AI Processing

The presence of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the current era has indeed raised pros and cons in society. Many feel helped by the presence of artificial intelligence, because it can make human work easier.

Aware of this, Samsung has equipped their Exynos chipset with capabilities that can support the presence of AI. Even with the Exynos 2400, which allows generative AI practices.

This Generative AI allows users to more easily access artificial intelligence in this era, such as being able to change text into images and open ChatGPT.

3. Have Ray Tracing

Finally, the visuals on a smartphone in 2024 will be something that will also be taken into consideration. The quality of shots, videos, and graphic comfort when playing games are what users are after.

Therefore, several Samsung Exynos chipsets are equipped with the Ray Tracing feature. A technology capable of producing images with a high level of accuracy and realism. Even when used in games, the Ray Tracing feature is able to provide a satisfying gaming experience.

The Samsung Galaxy S Ultra camera will be even more sophisticated, here’s the leak

Samsung will only launch the Galaxy S24 series in early 2024. However, leaked specifications for the Galaxy S Ultra for the next few years have begun to be revealed.

This leak comes from tipster Tech_Reve in his post on Twitter/X. He shared a leak of the camera roadmap for the Galaxy S Ultra, up to the Galaxy S26 Ultra which will be released in 2026.

Starting from the Galaxy S24 Ultra which will be released next year, Tech_Reve said this cellphone will use a 50 MP periscope telephoto camera with a 0.7µm pixel size. For comparison, the Galaxy S23 Ultra currently has a 10 MP telephoto camera with 1.12µm.

Tech_Reve does not reveal the zoom capabilities of this telephoto lens. Leaks about the Galaxy S24 Ultra’s periscope camera are quite confusing, some claim the optical zoom capability is up to 3x and some claim up to 5x.

Switch to the Galaxy S25 Ultra which will be released in two years. Tech_Reve claims this cellphone will get the biggest camera upgrade. The main camera will use a new lens and the ultrawide camera will be increased to 50 MP (up from 12 MP on the Galaxy S23 and S24 Ultra).

In addition, the periscope telephoto camera on the Galaxy S25 Ultra is predicted to support variable zoom. This feature will be a significant upgrade as it will allow the phone to take high-quality photos at various zoom levels.

Samsung will not be the first cellphone vendor to offer this feature on conventional cellphones. This feature has been present on Sony Xperia phones for several generations, with zoom capabilities from 3.5x to 5.2x, as quoted from Android Authority, Tuesday (19/12/2023).

Finally, Tech_Reve claims the Galaxy S26 Ultra will get an upgrade to a 200 MP camera. This main camera is said to use a 1/1.1 inch sensor with 0.7µm.

For comparison, the Galaxy S23 Ultra uses a 200 MP main camera with a sensor measuring 1/1.3 inch and 0.6 µm pixels. This upgrade should improve the camera’s ability to collect light and the quality of the images taken.

Of course, these are all still early leaks, especially for the Galaxy S25 Ultra and Galaxy S26 Ultra. These two phones won’t be launched in a few years and the leaked specifications could change.

The body of the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra will be more durable

Samsung is preparing to launch the Galaxy S24 series which is less than a month away. A number of additional details about this line of phones are starting to be revealed, including its rugged design.

Especially for the Galaxy S24 Ultra, it is reported that it will come with a more durable design thanks to a titanium frame and a new version of Gorilla Glass. The Galaxy S24 Ultra will be Samsung’s first cellphone to use a titanium body

Tipster Ahmad Qwaider claims the titanium frame on the Galaxy S24 Ultra is 56% tougher than the aluminum armor used on the Galaxy S22 Ultra and Galaxy S23 Ultra.

Samsung S24 More Stronger

Titanium is a material that is stronger than aluminum and lighter than stainless steel. But this new material will not reduce the weight of the Galaxy S24 Ultra because titanium is not lighter than aluminum.

This titanium body will likely only be used on the Galaxy S24 Ultra, so the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+ will likely still use an Aluminum Armor frame, as quoted from SamMobile, Monday (18/12/2023).

Apart from the titanium body, the Galaxy S24 Ultra will also use Gorilla Glass Armor to protect the screen. This is a new version of the Gorilla Glass Victus 2 used in the Galaxy S23 Ultra. However, Qwaider did not reveal how tough this latest Gorilla Glass is.

This new version of Gorilla Glass will protect the Galaxy S24 Ultra screen which uses a Dynamic AMOLED 2X panel with a brightness level of up to 2,600 nits. Previous rumors said the Galaxy S24 Ultra would have a flatter screen than its predecessor.

The Galaxy S24 Ultra will most likely use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset. Qwaider claims this cellphone will have a larger vapor chamber cooling system which can keep the chipset temperature 1.9 times cooler than the previous generation.

Samsung is predicted to release the Galaxy S24 series in mid-January 2024 at an event held in San Jose, California. According to rumors circulating, Samsung will not increase the price of the Galaxy S24 series to remain competitive.

This is how fast the Samsung Galaxy A55 is, it will make you fall in love

Samsung is reportedly preparing the Galaxy A55. A number of leaks have been revealed, starting from its appearance to the latest benchmark results.

The Galaxy A55 will be supported by the Exynos S5E8845 chipset which is believed to be the Exynos 1480. Because the Exynos 1380 and 1280 carry the model numbers S5E8835 and S5E8825 attached to the Galaxy A54 and A53.

The chipset installed on the Galaxy A55 has been tested for performance using the Geekbench application. The results show an improvement from the Galaxy A54.

Quoted from GSMArena, in the single-core test, the Exynos S5E8845 achieved a score of 1,180. Meanwhile, in the multi-score test, it got 3,536.

When compared, the Galaxy A54 powered by the ExynosS5E8835 scored 1,108 on single-core. For the multi-core test, a score of 2,797 was obtained.

Referring to leaks circulating previously, it was stated that the Exynos 1480 is an octa-core chipset with four high-powered CPU cores, clocked at up to 2.75GHz and four other efficiency cores that work up to 2.05GHz.

What’s more interesting is that the chipset is said to use the Xclipse 530 GPU based on AMD RDNA2. It should be much more powerful than the Mali GPU on previous Exynos chips and could even potentially offer ray tracing in games.

However, this is still speculation at this time. We have to wait until the Galaxy A55 is officially launched by Samsung.

Unfortunately, until now we don’t know when the successor to the Galaxy A54 will be released on the market.

It was previously reported that the specifications and appearance of the Galaxy A55 appeared in cyberspace.

He revealed that the Galaxy A55 measures 161.1 x 77.3 / 77.9 x 8.2mm, making it slightly taller and wider than the A54. Therefore, the A55 screen will measure 6.5 inches, compared to the previous 6.4 inch screen.

The Samsung A55 still adopts Infinity-O which is home to the 32 MP front camera. The resolution also remains Full HD+ with a refresh rate of 120Hz.

8 MP RAM is embedded, while the internal memory has two options, namely 128 and 256 GB. Also provided is support for fast charging, which is still the same as its predecessor, namely 25W.

Samsung reportedly installed a 50MP rear main camera, 12MP ultra-wide and 32MP front camera, the same as the Galaxy A54.

According to reports circulating, this cellphone is expected to arrive in early 2024 along with the Galaxy A35 5G.

Galaxy S25 Reportedly Will Abandon Samsung Camera Sensor

Samsung has always used its ISOCELL sensor for the main camera of the Galaxy S series. But next year it looks like that trend will change.

According to a leak from tipster Tech_Reve, Samsung will reportedly abandon the ISOCELL sensor for the main camera of the Galaxy S25 and Galaxy S25+. Instead, they will use a camera sensor from Sony.

Samsung has increased the capabilities of the Galaxy S22’s main camera from 12 MP to 50 MP using the ISOCELL GN3 sensor. The same sensor is also used in the Galaxy S23, and will be used by the Galaxy S24.

It is not yet known what Sony sensors the Galaxy S25 and Galaxy S25+ will use. It is not impossible that the Galaxy S25 and Galaxy S25+ will use a camera sensor that is larger than the ISOCELL GN3.

But that doesn’t mean the Galaxy S25 and Galaxy S25+ will use the 1 inch Sony IMX989 sensor. Sony itself has an IMX890/LYT-700 sensor which is similar in size to the ISOCELL GN3.

Information Of  Samsung S25

Tech_Reve does not provide information regarding the Galaxy S25 Ultra’s main camera. Considering that Sony does not offer a 200 MP camera sensor, it is likely that Samsung will still use its own camera sensor for the main camera of the Galaxy S25 Ultra.

In a separate tweet on Twitter/X, Tech_Reve once claimed that Samsung was developing a 1 inch ISOCELL camera sensor with 0.8 µm pixels, dual-pixel autofocus, and crop zoom in the sensor. However, the model number of this camera sensor is not revealed, as quoted from SamMobile (5/12/2023).

Keep in mind that these are just early rumors that have not been confirmed by Samsung. The launch of the Galaxy S25 series is still more than a year away, so there will likely still be many changes.

Samsung itself is preparing to launch the Galaxy S24 series which will reportedly be introduced in mid-January 2024. The specifications of the three cellphones in this line have been leaked, which indicates that the camera capabilities have not changed much compared to the Galaxy S23 series.
