Samsung: new operating system for smartphones?

Samsung: new operating system for smartphones?


If Huawei, for reasons related to bans imposed by law, cannot take advantage of Android equipped with GApps, it has been discovered that Samsung is also contributing to the development of a new OS but with different purposes.

It is not the first time we talk about Fuchsia OS, Google's open source project born in 2016 and for now kept well hidden in terms of communication by the Web giant.

Fuchsia OS has nothing to do with Android, it is conceptually different and it was designed with the aim of being natively compatible with all devices that can be used during a day: smartphones, tablets, smartwatches, notebooks and even desktops.

It has been discovered that Samsung has been contributing to its development for some time with its own file system called F2FS. The confirmation comes from the support file of the companies that develop the project, in which Samsung also appears. The Korean company has already decided to use it to support NAND flash, replacing ext4 as the default format. He had this first approach with the Galaxy Note 10 and then it was gradually expanded to other devices.

In addition to contributing to the development of the new Fuchsia OS, Samsung would have suggested using its filesystem to be able to communicate with other connected devices, forming a sort of much more compatible bridge.

Such an interest on the part of Samsung, which decides to use its technological strength for the cause, could result in an involvement in the new future project. Being among the first Google partners, as soon as it decides to make it official, will certainly give Samusng a significant plus that will be able to use it alongside Android.

iPhone 13 Pro Max With Bigger Battery Could Rival Samsung S21 Ultra 5G

The iPhone 13’s rumored bigger battery might be a must.

Reports suggest the iPhone 13 will have both a beefier battery and 120Hz refresh rate — the latter delivering smoother scrolling and gaming.

With the 120Hz mode turned on, there’s more battery drain. And if you combine a 120Hz refresh rate with 5G (think: games) a battery upgrade for the iPhone 12 is practically a given — since 5G draws more power from the battery than 4G.

The way it stands now:

  • iPhone 12 Pro Max battery : 3,687 mAh
  • Samsung S21 Ultra battery: 5,000 mAh
  • An iPhone 13 Pro Max with a bigger battery would likely compete with the Samsung S21 Ultra and its 5,000 mAh (milliamp Hour) battery — which delivers long battery life even with 5G and 120Hz display mode enabled.

    Other battery boosting tech may also be in store. The next-gen iPhone may use Qualcomm's Snapdragon X60 5G modem which is a more power efficient design, possibly extending battery life.

    The iPhone 13’s X60 modem would also be able to handle 5G data from both mmWave and sub-6GHz bands simultaneously, allowing for better 5G performance, according to Qualcomm.

    A 5G connection via mmWave is generally faster than sub-6GHz 5G but mmWave operates over shorter distances than mmWave. In other words, longer-distance sub-6GHz and faster mmWave both have advantages depending on your location.


    Note that the larger battery means the iPhone 13 will be slightly heavier, according to reports.
