Samsung OLC SSD
Samsung Electronics has begun mass producing the industry's first 4-bit (QLC, quad-level cell) 4-terabyte (TB) SATA solid-state drive (SSD) for consumers. Based on 1-terabit (Tb) V-NAND with performance equivalent to the company's 3-bit design, Samsung's QLC SSD is expected to bring a new level of efficiency to consumer SSDs, Samsung said. With its new 1Tb 4-bit V-NAND chip, Samsung will be able to efficiently produce a 128GB memory card for smartphones that will lead the charge toward higher capacities for high-performance memory storage. Typically, as data stored within a memory cell increases from three bits to four, the chip capacity per unit area would rise and the electrical charge (used to determine information from a sensor) would decrease by as much as 50% making it considerably more difficult to maintain a device's desired performance and speed. However, Samsung said its 4-bit 4TB QLC SATA SSD maintains its performance levels at the same level as a 3-bit SSD, by using a 3-bit SSD controller and TurboWrite technology, while increasing drive capacity through the use of 32 chips, all based on 64-layer fourth-generation 1Tb V-NAND. The 4-bit QLC SSD enables a sequential read speed of 540 MB/s and a sequential write speed of 520 MB/s, and comes with a three-year warranty. Samsung plans to introduce several 4-bit consumer SSDs later in 2018 with 1TB, 2TB, and 4TB capacities in the widely used 2.5-inch form factor.

Asustek ZenFone 3 Zoom smartphone
Asustek Computer has announced ZenFone 3 Zoom, an ultra-thin 5.5-inch smartphone with a 5000mAh battery and a dual-camera system. The ZenFone 3 Zoom features dual-camera system consists of a main camera with an f/1.7-aperture, 25mm wide-angle main lens paired to a 12-megapixel Sony IMX362 sensor with large 1.4µm pixels (1/2.55in sensor size); and a 59mm, 12-megapixel zoom camera with an instant 2.3X optical zoom and a 12X total zoom. This setup ensures sharp focus for subjects at any distance, the vendor said. ZenFone 3 Zoom also has the first Asustek SuperPixel Camera that enables shooting in night-time or low-light environments. The smartphone is equipped with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 625 14nm processor, while the high-capacity battery also gives the ZenFone 3 Zoom the ability to double up as a power bank to charge other devices.

Samsung 12-megapixel image sensor
Samsung Electronics has announced a 12-megapixel image sensor for smartphones. Already in mass production, this 1.4 micron-pixel-based image sensor is equipped with Dual Pixel technology that has been reserved for DSLR cameras. Samsung's new image sensor with Dual Pixel technology employs two photodiodes located on the left and right halves of a pixel, while a conventional image sensor dedicates less than 5% of its pixels, with one photodiode each that converts light particles into measurable photocurrent for phase detection. As each and every pixel of the Dual Pixel image sensor is capable of detecting phase differences of perceived light, significantly faster auto-focus has become possible. The image sensor has also adopted Samsung's ISOCELL technology, which isolates the photodiodes in each pixel with a physical wall to further reduce color cross talk, maximizing the image sensor's performance. For top-of-the-line performance while keeping the size to a minimum, the new image sensor is built with cutting-edge chip-stacking technology. The Dual Pixel image sensor stacks a 65nm sensor and 28nm logic chip together to deliver outstanding photo-taking experiences in today's sleek smartphones.
