Since its inception back in 1938, Samsung has been one of the most prominent companies, leading the world of technology. In 2009, it launched its first smartphone with the Samsung GT-I7500 Galaxy, and thus began the era of the Samsung Galaxy smartphones. Through the years, Samsung has stunned the world with its innovative phones. Let’s take a look at Samsung’s innovations through the decade.
- Super AMOLED display
Samsung was the first company to launch its Galaxy S phone in 2010 that had a Super AMOLED display. Super AMOLED is an AMOLED display that has an integrated touch function, and not just a layer that recognizes touch on top of the actual AMOLED screen. The Galaxy M31s, one of the best phones under 20000 INR, also comes with a super AMOLED display.
- S Pen, the stylus
In 2011, Samsung launched the Galaxy Note that came with its own stylus, the S Pen. From then on, the S Pen became the USP of the Note series from Samsung. It can be used to jot down notes, make digital art, and can do so much more. Samsung carried on with producing its Note phones with the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, Note 10 and Note 20 Ultra.
- Biometric Authentication
Samsung has always worked towards giving their users better ways to protect their privacy in their phones. With the introduction of fingerprint scanners in phones, Samsung used biometrics to offer further security. The first phone to feature fingerprint scanners was the Samsung Galaxy S5 in 2014. Since then, various companies have also followed a similar path to keep up with their privacy measures.
- Wireless Charging
Samsung has been at the forefront of making wireless charging a reality. The Galaxy S6 that came out in 2015 was the first phone in the Galaxy series to support wireless charging.
With the introduction of Wireless PowerShare, Samsung took this technology to a different level. First seen in the Galaxy S10, this feature enabled users to share their device’s battery capacity. Thus, they can essentially charge other devices too.
- Dust and Water Resistance
The Samsung a71 was the first device to achieve an international standard rating of IP68 of dust and water resistance. This set new standards of durability for other smartphones to follow. Rainfall or other unpleasant surroundings no longer posed the threat of hardware erosion or electrical short circuit.
- Infinity Display
Samsung introduced its Infinity Display feature in the Galaxy S8 in 2017. It featured a bezel-less display that basically increased the body to screen ratio by a huge margin. This definitely revolutionized mobile displays once and for all.
With all of this and more to its credit, Samsung can be definitely regarded as the most innovative smartphone brand in the world.
