At the moment, there seems to be various information and details about new devices in the firmware files of Samsung devices. In a firmware with the new Android 9 there are traces of future hardware. Also included is the device called “Winner”, which is supposed to be Samsung’s first foldable smartphone. This device may be presented for the first time in November, now the first files appear in a new firmware. But no more than that.

We are hereby confirmed that this device is very close to presentation. A few weeks ago the Galaxy S10 with its four variants was discovered in said firmware. Also new: Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8150 was mentioned in the firmware alongside the existing Snapdragon 845. Reports in recent weeks confirm that Qualcomm is likely to rely on a new name in the future.

Qualcomm no longer only wants to offer AI support in the next eighth generation, but it also wants to include dedicated chips (NPUs) in its SoCs for artificial intelligence. Huawei and Apple are already doing it. We expect the first devices with the new SoC in spring 2019, probably not before.

DeX Wireless Docking Station?

With the DeX station, Samsung has developed a system that turns modern USB-C smartphones into PCs. Just put the flagship smartphone on the docking station and the device becomes a PC. Now an update is going to be developed, which even allows connection to DeX wirelessly. Samsung employees indicate this in the internal forum.

The good news is that they are working on a wireless connection for DEX, but some improvements need to be made first, so there is currently no timetable for implementing this.

More details are also missing here. Your own product, just for Samsung or just software? We have to wait.
