The Samsung Galaxy A80 Smartphone

The new Samsung Galaxy A80 is a smartphone specifically designed for spontaneous pictures (selfies), live video streaming (Facebook Live, and Instagram Live. It accomplishes all that with a nifty rotating camera!

  • A 48 MP main camera with f/2.0 aperture
  • An 8 MP ultra-wide angle camera with f/2.2 aperture
  • A 3D depth sensing camera with a Live Focus video capability

By default, they point backwards, like regular triple-lens rear cameras. But if you need to take a selfie, the camera module pops-up and rotates! This allows you to take high-quality selfies with Live Focus capability!

The rotating camera module also supports three other features :

The Samsung Galaxy S9 Enterprise Edition Details Leaked!

We had earlier revealed everything you need to know about the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy S9+ ahead of the official Galaxy UNPACKED event in Barcelona. Now, we will share with you details and the official Samsung video for the Samsung Galaxy S9 Enterprise Edition and the Samsung Galaxy S9+ Enterprise Edition smartphones.

 

The Samsung Galaxy S9 Enterprise Edition

As part of the Samsung For Enterprise (SAFE) initiative, many Samsung smartphones have the enterprise-grade encryption capabilities in the form of Samsung Knox built-in. This allows users to securely protect sensitive data using My Knox and now, Secure Folder.

Samsung appears to be extending their Knox capabilities to introduce Enterprise Edition versions of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ smartphones. Check out the Samsung Galaxy S9 Enterprise Edition video that was just leaked.

In addition to Samsung Knox 3.1 and biometric authentication in the standard Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy S9 Enterprise Edition and Samsung Galaxy S9+ Enterprise Edition will feature :

  • Knox Configure
  • 24/7 technical support
  • Samsung E-FOTA (Firmware Over-The-Air) updates by the corporate IT department
  • Maintenance support, and extended device warranties
  • Security updates for up to 4 years

The video also confirmed the new Samsung DeX with a flat design, and gave us a first look at how the variable aperture camera works.

The variable aperture camera has a mechanical aperture that lets you switch between an incredibly bright f/1.5 aperture, and the f/2.4 aperture for a deeper depth of field.

Samsung Knox Comes To 2018 Samsung Smart TVs!

At CES 2018, Samsung announced that the 2018 Samsung Smart TVs will ship with the Samsung Knox technology. They also announced that their Smart TV security solution is the first in the industry to receive the Common Criteria (CC) certification for three consecutive years, and its Checkout payment service is also certified by the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).

 

Samsung Knox Comes To 2018 Samsung Smart TVs!

The Samsung Knox technology for TV implements a hardware root of trust security architecture which incorporates security features across the TV platform stack. Integrated into all Smart TV lineups in 2018, the Samsung Knox technology ensures strengthened security optimized for the Smart TV user environment.

The Samsung Knox-based security system detects and removes malicious applications which can steal important data from other applications. Based on this enhanced security, Samsung became the first in the industry to receive Common Criteria certification, an internationally recognized certification system for computer security that is conducted for government evaluations, for three consecutive years.

Samsung Checkout

[adrotate group=”2″]

The Samsung Checkout payment service received PCI DSS certification by UL at CES 2018, another noteworthy feat for the TV industry. For T-Commerce, which allows consumers to purchase products and services directly from their TVs, Samsung has further strengthened the security of its Smart TV payment service.

Checkout is a simple T-Commerce payment service that encrypts credit card information. PCI DSS is an international data security standard which has been adopted by American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB International, MasterCard, and Visa Inc. for all organizations that process, store or transmit credit card information.

McAfee Security For TV

In addition to Samsung’s own security software, Samsung and McAfee also have developed a new security application tailored for TVs called McAfee Security for TV, which has been in place since April 2017 and ships on all Samsung Smart TVs.

This TV security application provides an additional twofold protection for Samsung Smart TVs. McAfee is one of the world’s leading independent cybersecurity companies, offering security services in 32 languages. Samsung Smart TVs were the first in the world to adopt this innovative security software, specifically for TVs.

My Knox Is Dead. Long Live Samsung Secure Folder!

Samsung announced in June 2017 that they were killing off My Knox, replacing it with Samsung Secure Folder that ships with the Samsung Galaxy S8 / S8 Plus and Galaxy Note8 smartphones.

Secure Folder is compatible with the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge smartphones that have been upgraded to Android 7.0 Nougat.

Updated @ 2017-12-22 : Revamped the article, adding a migration guide, and a final email from Samsung.

Updated @ 2017-11-16 : Added a new email from Samsung with a confirmed end-of-service date for My Knox.

Originally posted @ 2017-06-07


 

Samsung Kills My Knox

In early June 2017, Samsung announced that they’re killing My Knox, and replacing it with Secure Folder. The end-of-life date was set for 19 December 2017.

Beginning 20 December 2017, the My Knox app would no longer be available to download from the Google Play Store. The My Knox portal will also be disabled – you won’t be able to login.

Samsung replaced My Knox with their new Secure Folder solution. They promise that it is a superior solution.

 

Samsung Secure Folder

Samsung Secure Folder is a new security solution that leverages the defense-grade Samsung Knox security platform to create a private, encrypted space on a Samsung Galaxy smartphone running on Android 7.0 Nougat or better.

It is available in the Samsung Galaxy S8 / S8 Plus and Galaxy Note8 smartphones, but can be downloaded and installed in the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge smartphones that have been upgraded to Android 7.0 Nougat.

As no Mobile Device Management (MDM) is required, it is suitable for both personal and business usage. Here are additional details :

  • Apps and data can be installed or created within Secure Folder, or moved there from outside.
  • Apps and data moved to Secure Folder are kept separate, leveraging SE for Android – preventing unauthorized communication between apps inside and outside.
  • Application data and files are encrypted with defense-grade Sensitive Data Protection (SDP) technology – using 256-bit AES cipher algorithm to secure data.
  • Data remains encrypted even after the user has exited Secure Folder or has turned off the device, and is decrypted when a user successfully authenticates himself / herself.

It can also be used alongside Knox Workspace, enabling two Knox container solutions at the same time.

This allows users to have access to both a dedicated work environment (Knox Workspace), as well as a secure personal area (Secure Folder).

How To Migrate From My Knox To Secure Folder

Fortunately, Samsung made it easy to migrate your private data from My Knox to Secure Folder. Here are the steps :

  • Log into the My Knox app
  • Go to My Knox Settings, and select Backup and restore.
  • Backup your My Knox data (you’ll need a Samsung account to do this).
  • Install and setup Secure Folder, if you have not already done so.
  • Log into Secure Folder.
  • Go to Secure Folder Settings, and select Backup and restore.
  • Select Restore (using the same Samsung account), and you’re done!

if you are worried about the dangers of backing up your encrypted data to the cloud (it is encrypted!), you can use this alternative method :

  • Log into the My Knox app.
  • Copy the data out into the Samsung smartphone, or a secure computer
  • Install and setup Secure Folder, if you have not already done so.
  • Move the data into Secure Folder.

 

Samsung My Knox Termination Chronology

In early June 2017, Samsung sent out this email to all registered Samsung users :

First Samsung warning about terminating My Knox

My Knox will no longer be available on new Samsung devices in 2017. You may continue your secure space experience by setting up Secure Folder, available now from Galaxy Apps.

Secure Folder runs on Android N OS or higher versions only. It leverages the defence-grade Samsung Knox security platform to create a private, encrypted space on your Samsung Galaxy phone. Applications and data moved to Secure Folder are partitioned separately on the device and gain an additional layer of security and privacy.

To seamlessly transfer your private content between solutions, please back up your My Knox data and restore it to Secure Folder. To back up your My Knox data, go to My Knox settings > Backup and restore. Remember, a Samsung account is required to use this feature.

You can restore the backup data after setting up Secure Folder. Go to Secure Folder settings > Backup and restore > Restore.

You may use My Knox until its end-of-service date (which will be announced soon). However, be aware that we will not be actively maintaining the service or adding new features.


This was followed by this email on 15 November 2017, revealing its end-of-service date as 19 December 2017.

Samsung confirms end-of-life date for the My Knox service

Dear customers,

Thank you for using My Knox.

As previously announced, we will end support for My Knox on 19th December 2017. You will not be able to download My Knox from any app store after the end-of-service date.

You may use My Knox on your mobile device until you uninstall the application. However, you will be unable to log in to the My Knox portal to remotely manage your device (e.g. to reset your My Knox password or unlock My Knox).

If you have a phone that runs the Android N OS, we recommend transferring your private data in My Knox to Secure Folder, available at Google Play or Galaxy Apps, and on new Samsung phones such as the Galaxy Note 8. We also recommend backing up your My Knox data first, and restoring the data after you set up Secure Folder.

To back up My Knox data, go to My Knox Settings > Backup and restore > Back up My Knox data. Please note that a Samsung account is required to use the My Knox backup and restore feature.

If your phone does not support Secure Folder, then please back up the content to outside My Knox (e.g. using the Move to Personal mode feature).

For more information regarding My Knox termination, please visit My Knox FAQ .

We hope you have enjoyed your experience with My Knox. Samsung is committed to continuous innovation to provide you with the highest-quality products and services.


This final email was sent on 20 December 2017, noting that My Knox is now terminated :

The final Samsung email on the termination of the My Knox service

Dear customers,

As previously announced, we will terminate the My Knox service on 19th December 2017. You will not be able to download My Knox from any app store from then on. You will also be unable to log in to the My Knox portal to remotely manage your device.

You may use My Knox on your mobile device until you uninstall the application. However we highly recommend you to back up your data or move it to outside My Knox.

If your phone supports Secure Folder, we recommend transferring your private data in My Knox to Secure Folder, available at Google Play or Galaxy Apps, and on new Samsung phones such as the Galaxy Note 8. We also recommend backing up your My Knox data first, and restoring the data after you set up Secure Folder.

To back up My Knox data, go to My Knox Settings > Backup and restore > Back up My Knox data. Please note that a Samsung account is required to use the My Knox backup and restore feature.

The Official Samsung Forum 2017 Press Release

Singapore – February 16, 2017 – Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., today showcased its vision for new-generation technology and innovation at its 2017 Samsung Southeast Asia and Oceania Forum in Singapore. The range of new products include the stunning new QLED TV line-up, the Family Hub 2.0 refrigerator, FlexWash, the washer-dryer combination model, and the POWERbot VR7000 – Samsung demonstrated its leadership in pioneering new technology that seamlessly fits into consumers’ lives through more personalized and intuitive ways.

“At Samsung, we remain committed to developing thoughtful innovations that not only address the ever-changing needs of our customers, but are also aimed at making a meaningful impact in their lives,” said Yong Sung Jeon, President & CEO, Samsung Electronics Southeast Asia and Oceania. “Despite some challenges, we’ve made big strides in 2016 and will continue to look forward as we engineer a smarter future together with our consumers.”

 

Samsung QLED, a New Frontier in Home Entertainment

Featuring incredible advancements in the development of Quantum dot technology, Samsung unveiled the new range of QLED TVs – the Q7, Q8 and Q9. The series, which add new metal material to nano-sized semiconductor quantum dots, deliver the perfect mix of light and color currently available in display technology. The result is a stunning large-screen QLED TV, with an incredibly accurate and precise picture that can be viewed from any angle or in any environment.

Samsung QLED TV takes Quantum dot technology to new heights with advanced light efficiency and stability, as well as a wider color spectrum than ever before. The new QLED TV addresses several consumer pain points that could be found in many of today’s displays, including brightness levels, lifespan, color range, details and viewing angles. It not only displays a 100% color volume and a peak brightness of HDR 1,500 – 2,000 nits, but also improves upon all aspects of picture quality.

Samsung also introduced new design elements that aims to enhance the QLED TV experience even further. The practically invisible optical cable helps to solve the issue of unsightly cords and clutter that can be found in the home with a sleek, single cord system. Additional accessories such as the optional “No-Gap Wall Mount,” makes mounting a TV flush against the wall simpler and faster. Finally, for those who desire a variety of stylish options when displaying their TV, Samsung introduced two new optional elegant TV stands – Gravity and Studio – that appeal to the consumer who prefers an un-mounted TV.

In addition to the new range of QLED TVs, Samsung also shared its plans to deliver a more unified experience for customers using various services and devices.

  • Samsung Smart Remote – Enhanced to support even more devices, the new Samsung Smart Remote will now offer voice control capabilities across more Smart TV features, allowing consumers to have increased flexibility as they enjoy all that their TV has to offer at the touch of a button.
  • Samsung Smart View app – Available on Android and iOS, the app allows users to get their personalized SmartHub experience right on their phone.

 

Enhanced Flexibility Within the Home

Samsung’s unwavering commitment to enriching and empowering consumers with technological innovation and world-class expertise in home appliances is manifested in category redefining products like the Family Hub 2.0 refrigerator, the FlexWash laundry system, the world’s first Wind-Free wall-mounted air conditioner, and the VR7000 POWERbot vacuum cleaner which was recognized with innovation awards at CES 2017.

As an upgraded version of Family Hub 1.0, which received wide acclaim last year, Family Hub 2.0 boasts an expanded, flexible line-up that allows consumers to choose the refrigerator that best matches their needs. It also enhances usability with intuitive app integration and new app partners to help families stay connected, manage food, and access more entertainment on the refrigerator’s 21.5-inch LED touch-screen. For added convenience, Samsung’s advanced voice technology has also been integrated across many of Family Hub 2.0’s apps. It also improved UX usability by allowing consumers to make more accounts of apps.

This year, Samsung is also introducing the FlexWash washer-dryer combination model that tightly integrates two washers and a dryer into one high performance appliance. The innovative unit boasts a range of core Samsung laundry technologies and features, including the popular AddWash Door. FlexWash is designed to cut laundry time in half while providing a higher level of care for clothes: the main front loader can either be an AddWash washing machine or dryer, offering consumers the flexibility to start the dry cycle without moving clothes, while the smaller top loader takes care of delicate items that require extra care. Both loaders can be operated simultaneously or separately.

[adrotate banner=”4″]

Following the strong consumer response to the Wind-Free floor-standing air conditioner launched in Korea last year, Samsung has developed a new wall-mounted version. The AR9500M provides Wind-Free air conditioning, so the home maintains a comfortable level of coolness without the unpleasant feeling of direct cold wind. The unit disperses cool air through 21,000 micro holes at speeds slower than 0.15m/s, and creates ideal climates for deep and restful sleep.

Samsung also unveiled the latest addition to its line of POWERbot vacuum cleaners – the VR7000. Sporting a new slimmer design and enhanced features, the VR7000 ensures a more thorough clean, covering hard-to-reach corners and edges that hand-operated vacuum cleaners frequently miss. The POWERbot VR7000’s Edge Clean Master enables the unit to clean within 15mm of the wall while the Auto Shutter automatically drops down a barrier to help sweep up dust right at the edge.

Alongside new cutting edge products and technologies launched this year, the 2017 Samsung Southeast Asia and Oceania Forum will also exhibit Twin Cooling refrigerators and the popular AddWash and Active Dualwash Laundry machine.
