When Samsung unveiled its cleaner, easier-to-use One UI, it initially promised a beta for Galaxy S9 and Note 9 owners. Android Authority has learned that One UI will also be available for Samsung's 2017 flagships, the Galaxy S8 and Note 8. You might get Android Pie on other hardware, but the interface overhaul could be reserved for higher-end handsets.
Less than a week since Samsung unveiled its "Infinity Flex" display for its upcoming bendy smartphone, a new report from South Korea claims to know the name, price and release date of the device. The Yonhap News Agency's industry sources suggest the phone will be dubbed the "Galaxy F" -- a name that's been floated about before, along with "Galaxy X" -- and will debut in March, around a month after a 5G-enabled S10. Samsung, however, is keeping quiet this far ahead of launch.
Samsung, the world’s largest smartphone maker, was a relative nobody in the auto industry until it announced an $8 billion deal two years ago to acquire Harman International Industries Inc., a U.S.-based automotive-technology manufacturer. Its plan is to create a “digital cockpit”—a high-tech revamp of a car’s dashboard designed for an ultra-connected vehicle, with a bank of screens from one side of the car to the other. A commercialized Samsung digital cockpit is still at least several years away from reaching the market, meaning 2021 or 2022 car models, industry analysts say.
The name, price and release date of Samsung's mysterious foldable smartphone have finally been revealed, according to a South Korean news agency. Samsung teased the device at its annual developer conference last week, saying it will serve as the "foundation of the smartphone of tomorrow" – though few details about the phone were actually revealed. The Galaxy F will be unveiled alongside the Galaxy S10 smartphone at Mobile World Congress in February, it reported, citing industry sources.

Shares in Samsung BioLogics Co Ltd plunged on Monday amid concerns about its accounting practices ahead of a meeting of regulators this week to review whether it has violated rules which could lead to its delisting. The biotech drug arm of Samsung Group, South Korea's biggest family-run conglomerate, fell 16 percent by 0425 GMT, wiping 3.9 trillion won ($3.5 billion) off its market value after South Korean media reported that regulators were expected to reach a conclusion about the case at a meeting on Wednesday. An official at South Korea's top corporate watchdog, the Financial Services Commission (FSC), could not confirm the reports.
Koh, president of Samsung’s mobile communication business, told reporters after the event that he would launch the device in the first half “no matter what,” Yonhap reported on Sunday. A new version of the foldable phone will be unveiled every year like Samsung’s flagship phones, such as the Galaxy S9. The company may raise the production volume of its foldable devices depending on market reception, Koh was quoted as saying.
Meanwhile, it left observers to make educated guesses regarding some key details about Samsung's plans to commercialize foldable phones, and to purely speculate about others. Throw in the fact that some of the details that were shared suggest that Samsung's first foldable phone is more likely to be a niche product than a blockbuster hit, and one shouldn't count on the phone upending the industry in 2019 -- even if its underlying technology clearly has a lot of long-term potential. With the lights dimmed to avoid revealing too much, Samsung exec Justin Denison briefly showed off a prototype foldable phone on Wednesday at his company's annual mobile developer conference.
