Samsung's Bixby isn't exactly the most popular voice assistant, which is why some Galaxy Note 9 owners have been frustrated by the inclusion of a Bixby button on their handset. One tap would bring up the voice assistant, often by accident, and there was no way to disable it. Now, according to Android Authority, the new Note 9 software, which rolls out today, gives users the option to launch Bixby with a double tap, rather than a single tap.

The world's biggest producer of NAND and DRAM chips expects bit growth of less than 20 percent for dynamic random access memory (DRAM) and a 30 percent rise for NAND flash, Bloomberg said. Bit growth refers to the amount of memory produced and is important for measuring demand. Samsung, which along with SK Hynix and Micron Technology dominate the supply of DRAM and NAND flash memory chips, said earlier this year it expected increases of 20 percent for DRAM and 40 percent for NAND in 2018.
Samsung Electronics Co Ltd is planning to curb growth in memory chip output next year to keep supplies tight amid an expected slowdown in demand, Bloomberg reported on Thursday, citing people briefed on the matter.

The Dow and the S&P 500 hit record highs on Thursday, clearing away investors' immediate concerns over trade at the start of this week and leaving Wall Street free to return to a rally that now dates back a decade. Nine of the 11 major S&P sectors were higher, and the Dow Industrials, which had lagged the Nasdaq and the S&P, quickly moved back into record territory in morning trade.
Shares of Micron Technology Inc. are up 4.3% in Thursday morning trading, ahead of the company's crucial fiscal fourth-quarter earnings report. Micron will deliver results after market close, following weeks of speculation as to the state of memory pricing and demand. Analysts disagree on what to expect from Micron in regards to the latest quarter, as one analyst has called sentiment "dreadful" and another has said that there's room for considerable upside. Mizuho's Vijay Rakesh wrote early Thursday that he expects "a solid quarter" and forecast. He thinks that Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. is being "very disciplined in DRAM and NAND." The options straddle suggests that traders are ready for a big Micron stock move either way following the results. The stock is up 30% over the past 12 months, as the S&P 500 has gained 17%.

Two Samsung Group affiliates said on Thursday they are selling their entire stakes worth a combined $867 million in Samsung C&T Corp, as South Korea's biggest conglomerate faces government pressure to unwind group cross-shareholdings. The moves follow a similar stake sale in Samsung C&T, the group's de facto holding company, by another Samsung affiliate earlier this year, as the government forces big business groups to improve opaque ownership structures. Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance said in a regulatory filing that the sale of 2.6 million shares in C&T was to improve its asset management.
Samsung has unveiled the Galaxy A7 with three cameras at the rear: an 8-megapixel model with an ultra-wide 120 degree lens, a 24-megapixel main camera, and a "depth" lens to give you out-of-focus bokeh effects. The cameras use Samsung's Intelligent Scene Optimizer, which figures out what you're shooting and adjusts the contrast, brightness and color to optimize image quality. The front camera is no slouch either, as it packs 24-megapixel resolution, an adjustable LED flash and the "Selfie Focus" effect that brings bokeh to your self-portraits.

The shares of South Korea’s most-valuable company are in a tug of war. South Korea’s individual investors are emerging as staunch defenders of Samsung Electronics Co. against bearish institutional Korean firms and foreign sellers as the tech giant faces an uncertain outlook. Overseas stock pickers and South Korean institutions have sold almost a combined $7 billion net worth of Samsung stock this year, just as domestic individuals have bought $6.2 billion in the electronics giant, according to flow data compiled by Bloomberg from Korea Exchange.
In a meeting that was unthinkable 19 months ago, South Korea’s president will this week introduce the head of the country’s biggest conglomerate to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Pyongyang. The parley caps a remarkable period for Jay Y. Lee, vice chairman of Samsung Electronics Co., who since the start of 2017 has been arrested, tried and jailed before being released a year later. Meanwhile, President Moon Jae-in is finding his political fortunes tied to the company and South Korea’s other conglomerates amid a sputtering economy, even though he swept to an election victory promising to rein in the power of the chaebol.
Jay Y. Lee, vice chairman of Samsung Electronics Co., will join President Moon Jae-in’s delegation to Pyongyang this week in a further sign of thawing relations between the South Korean government and its biggest company. Lee is among 17 business leaders accompanying Moon to a summit with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un, according to a statement from the president’s office. SK Chairman Chey Tae-won and the head of LG Corp., Koo Kwang-mo, will also join the delegation.
Samsung has released invitations for an October 11th event that teases a new Galaxy device and the cryptic message "4x fun," CNET reports. Samsung Mobile CEO DJ Koh said earlier this month that it was "time to deliver" on the company's long-awaited foldable smartphone, but he mentioned it could be unveiled -- emphasis on could -- at the Samsung Developer Conference in November. Leaker Ice Universe tweeted last week, "Samsung Camera Camera Camera Camera," later noting all four would be on the back.
South Korea's LG Display has been chosen as a second supplier for organic light-emitting diode (OLED) screens for Apple's iPhones, the Electronic Times reported on Friday. Samsung Display, a unit of Samsung Electronics, was the sole supplier of OLED displays for Apple.
Apple Inc. introduced the world to its largest-ever smartphone Wednesday, the iPhone Xs Max. With a 6.5-inch screen, it dwarfs the 3.5-inch display on the original iPhone that Steve Jobs unveiled to the world in 2007. Onlookers will be forgiven for seeing the Max as a response to the popular Galaxy Note series made by Samsung Electronics Co. The latest in that line, the Galaxy Note 9, was released in August and has a 6.4-inch screen. Samsung’s Note 9 is the lighter of the two phones, weighing 201 grams compared to Apple’s 208 grams.
SEOUL—Samsung Electronics Co.’s vision for next-generation 5G technology includes a crackdown on jaywalking. At its Suwon, South Korea, headquarters, Samsung has built a “5G City” to demonstrate how the new wireless technology might be used to create smarter, safer cities. There, a busy intersection outfitted with the company’s network equipment, along with 10 video cameras and sensors, allows for real-time monitoring of the weather, traffic and even pedestrians.
Google has secured a bit more buy in from Samsung for a next generation text messaging standard it's long been promoting. The Android OS maker's hope for Rich Communication Services (RCS), which upgrades what SMS can offer to support richer comms and content swapping, can provide its fragmented Android ecosystem with a way to offer comparably rich native messaging -- a la Apple's iMessage on iOS.
The investment reflects Air Product's (APD) commitment to serve strategic customers as well as the broader semiconductor and electronics industries.
Samsung Electronics Co Ltd opened its biggest mobile store in the world in India on Tuesday as it tries to take pole position in the world's second-biggest smartphone market amid fierce competition from Chinese brands. The South Korean tech giant's roughly 33,000 square foot (3,000 square metre) store in the southern tech hub of Bengaluru will help it extend its lead in India over global rival Apple Inc, which has yet to open any flagship stores in the country. India, which boasts more than a billion wireless connections, presents a lucrative opportunity for smartphone makers to expand beyond China and the United States where growth has slowed.
Samsung, naturally, would never be content to launch a regular old Tile competitor. While the basic foundation of the SmartThings Tracker is similar to what Tile and a number of other startups offer, Samsung’s packed all it can into the product. The addition of LTE-M, meanwhile, means things like lost keys, backpacks and other belongings can be found through a much broader range of settings than standard Bluetooth-enabled products.
