Samsung shows off new Foldable Flip Phone

Recommended Posts

Polk has good stuff...some years ago a buddy of mine in Colorado was really into Dunlavy speakers..they sounded really, really good.   

My sister has a set of 70s vintage Magneplanar speakers w/ a vintage McIntosh receiver she had in her house in AZ, had a great warm sound w/ vinyl records, etc.   All that gear is in storage for now, probably going to set it up in the eventual beach house.

I do have a real Home Theater setup as stated, My Receiver is a Yamaha, I do believe Samsung could build an equal receiver but I agree their speakers suck and as such have Velodyne Subwoofers and speakers from https://www.velodyneacoustics.com/ which by the way was purchased in November 2019 by Audio Reference Co. http://www.audioreference.co.nz/

How can you have a kickass subwoofer and receiver with Samsung speakers?!?

By kicking yourself in the ass for buying them in the first place?

Huh..? You don't enjoy a good sound system? 

Today's TVs have the worst sound. They just don't have the room TVs used to to be able to put quality speakers in them.

I bought a year ago a nice 65" 4k QLED Samsung for our family room, and I got Yamaha receiver with Onkyo speakers.  Not very expensive but work great.  Awesome to watch movies with family or play games.

It is a joked that failed...

 

I aint even GONNA try to explain it. Just flush it down the loo...

Yes. I DO enjoy a good sound system. I, too, have got a Denon receiver. With JBL speakers.  My system is a 20 year old system. 5.1 surround.  

Im looking to upgrade to a 7.1. Possibly to a Yamaha receiver. (Or Denon or Onkyo) with better speakers.  My JBLs are not the top of the line ones... But not now. My system is decent enough. I do need a bigger TV though...OLED or QLED as well...

 

PS....nice purchase.  DENONS are awesome!

That is weird as I have had nothing but positive experiences with Samsung phones, TV's, Blue ray players, Speakers. The only thing in my home theater setup that is not Samsung is the receiver as they do not make a 7 channel surround sound system other than their fake virtual surround that I am not a fan of.

It's hard to understand how I wasn't supposed to know you didn't have Samsung speakers from this.

I read "subwoofers" and skipped right over and clicked the link...

But, in my defense, when I clicked the link and searched through their site I only saw subwoofers and no surround speakers. I still cannot find speakers... WHERE IZ THEY?!

DOH, Valid point, should have stated that better.

That is the problem with being bought by another speaker company, they kill off all the relationship speakers. So at the time Velodyne was sold by higher end audio stores here in Washington and Martin Logan Electrostatic speakers is what I bought with them. Velodyne and Martin Logan has a close long term relationship but I now see that it does not show up.

Speaking of speakers, any of you audiophiles have experience w/ wireless home theatre speakers?   Next time I set something up I really don't want to futz with running wires through walls for surround sound..

Yes, my son when he bought his Samsung Qled 75" Q8 TV he also bought from Costco at the time the Bose Lifestyle speaker system. They install very easy and other than power, the wireless system works well so your able to put the bass anywhere. For his place, more than loud enough.

Update, was wondering who else has come out with wireless speakers and I see lots of options now. Worth it to consider just having power where the speakers are and wireless connections for clean easy use. Will look into this more when I upgrade my home theater system.

      One has to wonder if the story about internal employees selling the new foldable display tech to Chinese companies has forced Samsung to speed up the release of info about their new 10 series of phones. Four models, siz cameras, massive displays and gradient colour schemes with 5G as confirmed by Verizon and AT&T, new fold-able phone makes this coming 2019 CES show exciting.

      The galaxy X is very exciting indeed, if you have not seen the developers show where they showed a masked version of the phone as they wanted to show off their screen, this is very cool tech.


      You get to see the real phone starting at 1:38, Such a cool phone.

      Samsung Battery Breakthrough
      Fast Charging and 45% Capacity Increase

      Samsung NewsRoom Announcement
      SAIT (Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology) has announced a breakthrough in developing a graphene ball coating that covers the nickel-rich cathodes and lithium-based anodes. 
      So one would ask what is the big deal? As you increase the speed of recharging a battery, it wears down the anode and cathode. The graphene ball coating not only prevents this, but also allows for an increase in capacity to go along with the faster recharging. This improves the cyclability of charging / depleting a battery. This tech also has proven to allow for a very highly stable battery with no loss of power at 60 degrees Celsius or 140 degrees Fahrenheit which is key for any electronic device but even more so for electric auto's. Graphene is 100 times more effective than copper in conducting electricity and 140 times times faster than silicon.
      Samsung says this technology allows them to take a conventional EV battery that would require 4hrs under current fast charge technology and reduce it to 12 minutes.
      To quote their new release: "SAIT’s research results are covered in-depth in this month’s edition of the science journal Nature Communications in an article entitled, “Graphene balls for lithium rechargeable batteries with fast charging and high volumetric energy densities.”SAIT has also filed two applications for the “graphene ball” technology patent in the US and Korea."

      Samsung, The Next LG Battery Competitor?
      Samsung has decided to be the next major Li cell supplier to the auto industry and has decided to one up LG in their quest to be the top supplier of super high density Li cells. Back in September 2016 Green Car Report stated that in an interview with Samsung, that they wanted to be equal to if not replace LG as one of the largest Li cell suppliers to the auto industry. They currently supply the cells for the BMW i line of EV auto's. In this story Samsung announced a $400 million investment in a new battery plant in Hungary which would allow them to support the growth of BMW's EV auto plans into the next century. Samsung pointed to LG's leadership in supplying batteries to 25 top tier auto companies around the world which includes GM's latest darling the Chevrolet BOLT.
      In this story, it is stated that both LG and Samsung will supply Audi with cells for their Audi EV SUV that is slated to be out in 2018 as a 2019 model. It also states that Samsung has bought a 4% stake or $449 million dollar investment in Chinese auto maker BYD which to quote the story; " BYD produced more electric cars and plug-in hybrids than any other company last year, although only a small fraction were sold outside China. "
      Clearly Samsung is wanting to be at the leadership position of the EV revolution and is willing to invest in making sure they get the sales.
      Fast Forward 4 months to an updated story by Green Car Report which is based on a story only days earlier by techcrunch.com that Samsung has a new battery cell design that allows near full recharge in 20 minutes. This is not some lowly 50 to 70 miles, but based on their new cell design and the battery pack they have built which is equal to 372 miles, this battery pack would give you 310 miles as a quick charge in 20 minutes.
      The story states that Samsung's new battery design is 10% less cells and weight versus current battery production from SDI. Now Samsung does not state if this quick charge is based on existing DC charging or what the industry is calling the new XFS charging system. XFS stands for Extreme Fast Charge and is designed to handle a minimum of 350kWh charging or more.
      Energy.gov web site has stated that they are working with the auto makers and their own researchers to make a standardized system that can handle the heavy power safely for the public so that the energy load is balanced, reduces cost as well as mitigate time to charge issues on top of cybersecurity concerns about paying for the use of these XFS Charging systems.

      XFS Charging Station concept by Electrek

      End result to quote the Energy.gov web site post:
      " Extreme fast charging is poised to accelerate mass market EV adoption as DOE and industry stakeholders work to overcome technical, cost, and safety barriers. Implementing an XFC system capable of up to 350-kW charging has the potential to increase EV utility, which in-turn would provide Americans with greater freedom of mobility and energy security. "

      It's not possible to message you.  At least, it wasn't possible to do that last summer.  So I'll post it here.  I had a crazy layover back in June at PHL ... for about 8 hours ... and wondered how far into NJ you were from Philly.  What I did is get the PHLash day pass and did the self-guided tour of Center City before heading back to the airport.  I stayed too close to the center because of time. I actually wasted time by going into South Philly.  I wanted to venture out onto the Main Line and see Villanova.  That rail line was included on the pass I bought.  I had to manage my time because of the late afternoon flight to the Coast.  Cheers.
