Samsung Patent for a Multi-Folding tablet with phisical keyboard was granted.

Samsung was granted a design patent for a multi-fold tablet back in September 2016 and last Tuesday they were granted at least their second utility patent for a multi-fold tablet.

Samsung's granted patent covers a multifold tablet as presented in patent FIGS. 1A and 1B above. When the sides of the tablet display are folded in, they protect the tablet's main display. This is illustrated in patent figure 6.

As noted in patent FIG. 4 above, the system behind the folding capability includes a 'sensing unit' which could include at least one of a pressure sensor, an illumination sensor, a proximity sensor, an acceleration sensor, an angular velocity sensor, a gyro sensor, a strain gauge sensor, and a gravity sensor. 

Samsung's patent FIG. 5B below illustrates a front view of the flexible display including a sub display unit and a key input unit; FIG. 6 illustrates front view of the flexible display including a transparent cover, allowing messages, time, date to be seen through the cover.

Samsung further noted that "When a user intends to use a medium-sized display screen, the configuration of the flexible display panel #10 can be deformed to the second configuration. For example, when the user intends to write a text message, the flexible display panel can be deformed to the second configuration. 

When folded, Samsung refers to the transparent cover as "a quick-view display" for rapid functions to provide simple information to the user such a received text message, received call, an alarm and so forth. 

Samsung further notes that the tablet could provide the user with telephony. Samsung doesn't dive into the telephony aspect of the tablet other than to state that "a user can make a call by using the flexible display in a third configuration." 

Samsung's granted patent was published by USPTO last week. It was originally filed in April 2015 and was publicized as a patent application in June 2016.

Samsung is searching for its most creative way of foldable tablet to come out with something really new and different from competitors. Will this concept see the light? Time will tell.

Samsung Galaxy S9 mini SM-G8850 stops by AnTuTu benchmark. More Specifications.

We reported before about the SM-G8850 Samsung Galaxy S9 as mini dual sim here with these specifications and we are adding as NEW the ones on the AnTuTu benchmark list:

5.8 inch screen/5.6 rounded. QHD+ S-AMOLED NEW 2220x1080px
3000 mAH Battery
Dual SIM card
Octa Core 2.8GHz NEW Qualcomm SnapDragon 660 with Adreno 512
Android 8.0
Dual cameras 8 MP each NEW to be confirmed.
expansion card up to 256GB
Video shooting support 1080p
colors: black and blue

The listing revealed the upcoming smartphone would sport the same glass and metal sandwich design as the Galaxy S9 duo, but it will feature a smaller display (5.6-inch one, to be precise) with lower resolution.

To the back of the S9 Mini, there are two vertically aligned cameras same as the ones present on the iPhone X. They’re said to be two 12MP sensors without the variable aperture feature which we saw on the Galaxy S9, but they’ll be capable mid-range cameras. There will be an 8MP front-facing camera, and the phone will be armed with a 3000mAh battery.

The interesting thing here is that on Geekbench the cpu is also Snapdragon 660 but the model number is SM-G8750 instead of SM-G8850, the first with a single SIM and the second with a dual SIM.

The question is : Are both of them a mini version of the Galaxy S9? Which of them is the Galaxy S9 Lite code name A Star? Which is going to see the light on the real world?

The device on AnTuTu benchmark achieved a score of 136483, which is in-line with other Snapdragon 660 devices available in the market today such as the Nokia 7 Plus, Xiaomi Mi Note 3 and more. 

With the device paying a visit to the benchmark apps, it is safe to presume the launch date is nearing.

Samsung Galaxy S9 mini DualSIM SM-G8850, stops by TENAA. Specifications.

If you notice on the above pictures this Samsung SM- G8850 smartphone looks like the premium Galaxy S9 Plus with two back cameras but with a flat infinity display that goes according to the new Samsung strategy to make mid range smartphones with not curved infinity displays like already did with the Galaxy A8/A8+ 2018 which have dual front cameras instead.

By the way TENAA is the China version of the FCC in the USA.

We were thinking about the Samsung SM-G8750 that stopped by GEEKBENCH last week with no pictures yet that it might be the Galaxy S9 mini but with one mini SIM card, because the SM-G8850 we are talking about now here, is a dual sim smartphone.

UK Science:University of Bath Scientists invented a measure glucose patch.

The device can measure glucose levels without piercing the skin

Scientists have created a non-invasive, adhesive patch, which promises the measurement of glucose levels through the skin without a finger-prick blood test.

The patch does not pierce the skin, instead it draws glucose out from fluid between cells across hair follicles, which are individually accessed via an array of miniature sensors using a small electric current. The glucose collects in tiny reservoirs and is measured.

Readings can be taken every 10 to 15 minutes over several hours.

Because of the design of the array of sensors and reservoirs, the patch does not require calibration with a blood sample.

The research team from the University of Bath hopes that it can eventually become a low-cost, wearable sensor that sends regular, clinically relevant glucose measurements to the wearer’s phone or smartwatch wirelessly, alerting them when they may need to take action.

An important advantage of this device over others is that each miniature sensor of the array can operate on a small area over an individual hair follicle – this significantly reduces inter- and intra-skin variability in glucose extraction and increases the accuracy of the measurements taken such that calibration via a blood sample is not required.

The project is a multidisciplinary collaboration between scientists from the Departments of Physics, Pharmacy & Pharmacology, and Chemistry at the University of Bath

Next Step.
In this study the team tested the patch on both pig skin, where they showed it could accurately track glucose levels across the range seen in diabetic human patients, and on healthy human volunteers, where again the patch was able to track blood sugar variations throughout the day.

The next steps include further refinement of the design of the patch to optimise the number of sensors in the array, to demonstrate full functionality over a 24-hour wear period, and to undertake a number of key clinical trials.
