Samsung unveils new camera sensors as though right on cue for the Galaxy S10

Samsung is also rushing to complete development of a bendable device that it hopes will let it dominate a niche market with potential to grow. It's been reported that the company will launch its first ever foldable smartphone at CES (Consumer Electronics Show) 2019. AndroidPIT will be there and we'll likely find out more about Samsung's 2019 smartphone lineup at the event.

As per a report by Sammobile, the brand is now rolling out a new update over the air (OTA) for the Galaxy J7 Duo that comes with a version number 720FDDU3ARJ3.

The U.S. variant of the device will run a firmware version F900USQU0ARJ5 that's been mostly developed stateside, which is uncharacteristic for Samsung's Android implementations.

This Galaxy F body is reportedly quite thick. Finally, a leaked picture of the screen protector with a hole in it seemed to suggest that Samsung has already started manufacturing its next gen display technology. Samsung's gadget is believed to have a 7.3-inch screen which can be folded in half like a wallet. This new gaming smartphone will be powerful as said by Samsung itself. Samsung is going to test the market before entering into big volume production.

The bendable display does not hold a finger-print sensor like the S10, due to technical difficulties unique to its flexible screens, the people said.

It's done by having four pixels work as one.

Samsung, however, went for the more complex design that features a second display on the outside. The company's smartphone vertical saw a decline in sales from previous year, and it largely blames its mid and low-end devices for low sales figures. With a wide range of new products on the way, all in line with the company's ThinQ AI plans, CES 2018 will feature some of the smartest LG technology ― from home appliances to mobile gadgets ― to date.

Samsung also blames increased cost of promotions and a negative currency impact in specific regions as well.

It will be Samsung's 10th anniversary for Galaxy series.
