If you need to pack more storage into your enterprise systems, then boy has Samsung got the SSD for you. The new PM1643 boasts a capacity of 30.72TB in a standard 2.5-inch drive.

On the inside, the drive has nine flash controllers driving 32 1TB packages of NAND flash, with each package containing 16 layers of 512Gb 3-bit-per-cell V-NAND. There’s also 40GB of DDR4 RAM. The RAM is unusual, too; the 8Gb chips are built using Through Silicon Vias (TSVs), enabling them to be stacked vertically. They’re assembled into 10 packages each of 4GB.

The drive uses a 12Gb/s Serial Attached SCSI interface. Samsung claims it can reach 400,000 read and 50,000 write random IOPS, with sequential read and write speeds of 2,100MB/s and 1,700MB/s, respectively.

In late-breaking photo leak, Galaxy S9 bares it all

By Ron Amadeo

WinFuture

German site WinFuture has given us a ton more Galaxy S9 pictures to admire before the phone’s launch next week. The pictures show everything we’ve been expecting: a phone that looks a lot like the existing Galaxy S8 but with a revised camera and fingerprint setup on the back.

Besides offering the most complete look yet at Samsung’s next flagship, these pictures shoot down an odd regression shown in the earliest Galaxy S9 leaks. The early pictures shared by VentureBeat showed a Galaxy S9 with thicker side bezels than the Galaxy S8, and now it seems those were not accurate. These pictures show a design that seems to have the same slim side bezels as the Galaxy S8, which, as usual, will curve into the phone body.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 Apparently Got Listed on GFXBench, Could Be Very Powerful

By Radu Iorga

It’s been a while since we heard about Samsung planning a new tablet, but here are with one, a presumed Samsung Galaxy Tab S4, leaked via GFXBench. The device is supposed to be the most powerful Galaxy tablet ever and we have more details below.

It’s been a year since the unveiling of the Galaxy Tab S3, so it’s high time we got a successor, don’t you think? The Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 just got listed on GFXBench, under the codename SM-T835. Considering that the LTE version of the Galaxy Tab S3 had the codename SM-T825 this may well be the follow-up. The GFXBench listing shows the slate with a 10.5 inch Super AMOLED display, that offers a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels.

It also mentions an octa core processor clocked at 2.3 GHz and Adreno 540 graphics. It’s very likely it’s a Snapdragon 835 and it’s accompanied by 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. As far as cameras are concerned, there’s a 12 MP back camera here and a front facing shooter with an 8 megapixel resolution. Android 8.0 Oreo is the OS of choice and the leaked specs hint that the Tab S4 may well be the most potent Samsung Android tablet yet.

We’ll see both a WiFi and LTE model, with AKG tuned speakers, S-Pen stylus and keyboard according to leaks. Last year Samsung unveiled the Tab S3 at MWC, so they may do the same with the Tab S4, at this year’s tech show. I’m expecting a sleek metal body too.

Samsung Foldable Smartphone Gets New Hinge in This Patent

By Radu Iorga

Microsoft seemed to have the upper hand over Samsung with the latest foldable phone design patents. They had a nice hinge thing going on, pretty solid and well built, resilient to potential stressors. Now Samsung strikes back with a patent of its own, for a foldable phone that uses a smarter hinge.

Samsung filed the patent with the WIPO, for an electronic device that uses a flexible display. The sketches shown here reveal a design that’s similar to the previous ones and it seems that Samsung is still working on the final design. It was filed by Sammy in May 2017 and published by WIPO only today. It’s written in English and describes a hinge that prevents a phone from big deformation and damage.

I see there several flexible pieces will rub against each other, aiding with the foldability of the device. This reminds me of a tank’s tracks, if you really want a comparison and that’s also the approach the Microsoft took. Documents from Samsung mention this as a smartphone, portable phone, navigation device, game console, TV and PDA. PMP, tablet, laptop and in vehicle unit are also here.

One of the sketches makes the device appear to be a clamshell, a theory we’ve heard related to Samsung before. In folded state, the hinge members will keep the curvature of the flexible display at a predetermined value. This prevents extra deformation of the device. It feels like Samsung has fixed the resilience problem.

Apple Leads Worldwide Tablet Market in Shipments in Q4 2017; Amazon Beats Samsung

By Radu Iorga

The latest figures are in, concerning the tablet market and other such developments. Turns out that Apple finished first in worldwide shipments in Q4 2017 and Amazon stunningly beat Samsung to second place.

The Apple iPad was once again the most shipped tablet in the world during the last 3 months of 2017. From October to December the Cupertino giant shipped 13.2 million slates, which is up 0.6% from the 13.1 million shipped in the same time frame in 2016.

That’s how Apple managed to capture 26.6% market share, all thanks to the cheaper iPad and the latest iPad Pro model. Things area about to get better, as the year 2018 is expected to bring an iPad Pro with an edge to edge OLED screen and maybe even a Face ID notch.

Back to the tablets top sellers, we usually see Samsung in second place, this time usurped by Amazon, who took on that spot. Samsung is now placed third, while Amazon benefited a lot from outfitting its devices with Alexa. They shipped 7.7 million tablets in the quarter, a 50.3% bump from Q4 2016’s 5.2 million.

Now they have a market share of 15.6%, up from 9.6%. Samsung did grow in detachables, but not in the rest of sub segmetns, Huawei is placed fourth with 3.5 million units shipped and 7.1% market share. Lenovo ends up fifth. A total of 49.6 million tablets were shipped from October to December 2017, which is down 7.9% from the year before.
