Unpacking Galaxy Unpacked: Always In Motion Is The Future With The Galaxy Note10 S Pen

Recommended Posts

On Wednesday, August 7th, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Note10 in New York City. Now in two sizes, these powerful phones pack a variety of features for productivity and creativity. Most interesting for developers is the evolution of the S Pen and the introduction of Air Actions. While the Note9 allowed developers to leverage a single- or double-click of the S Pen to control apps, the new S Pen has both a gyroscope and an accelerometer. Air Actions let developers use gestures to enhance app functionality by detecting basic movements. Furthermore, the full S Pen Remote SDK gives devs access to raw data, enabling you to capture complex movements.

Whether your app requires users to swipe right, cast magic spells, or engage in a lightsaber battle, the updated S Pen SDK has you covered. I know you’re thinking “that’s impossible, even for a computer!” but it’s true! Want to conduct a symphony? Perfect your golf swing? Now you can with the Note10.

The Note10 also extends the capabilities of DeX by making it easier for users to access mobile capabilities on a PC or Mac. Developers can learn more about optimizing their apps for DeX on the developer portal.

Galaxy Watch Active2

The newest addition to the Galaxy Watch portfolio is the Galaxy Watch Active2. It combines the best features of the original Galaxy Watch with those of the Galaxy Watch Active by bringing back the rotating bezel, this time in digital form. Users can disable the touch bezel, so check out our user-interface guidelines to ensure you know how to support the rotating bezel, touch bezel, and bezel-less devices in your apps.

Designers can continue to be creative and build beautiful custom watch faces for the Galaxy Watch Active2. Learn more about Galaxy Watch Designer and unleash your creative juices.

You might have caught the moment during Unpacked where they showed someone taking a group selfie from their phone by simply tapping an app on their watch. Apps like this are built with Tizen, which supports native, web, and .NET development. Last year’s Best of Galaxy Store Watch App winner was Kemas Dimas, who created a wrist camera app that does just what you saw onstage.

If you’re in San Francisco on August 22, we invite you to register now and join us at an event focused on growth and innovation in the wearable device market. You’ll hear from Samsung and partner experts in the health and wearable space, and we’ll be previewing the new Galaxy Watch Active2.

      This is the third post in the series covering Samsung’s participation in the MIT’s Medicine Grand Hack. You can find the first post here, and the second post here.
      The Promentia team was the Grand Prize Winner in the Mental Health and Professional Burnout track. Promentia’s project was an Alzheimer’s Disease prevention app, also named Promentia, with the tagline “Stay You.”
      Promentia accepting their award
      The team’s main point is that people do not realize that Alzheimer’s Disease is a highly delayable disease. More and more people are finding out that they are at higher risk of Alzheimer’s Disease as the popularity of at home genome services continues to rise.

      Promentia demoing their app
      They created a mobile prototype deployed on a Samsung Galaxy Note 9, and showed how they could use Samsung’s technology to develop a way to digitally enable ‪Alzheimer’s disease prevention.‬‬
      By monitoring the results from blood tests for six specific biomarkers scientifically proven to correlate to the onset of Alzheimer’s Disease (hsCRP, Homocysteine, Fasting insulin, Hemoglobin A1C, Fasting glucose, and Vitamin D), sleep, and exercise, the app tailors personalized feedback.
      Personalized feedback provided by the app
      The full team
      This is the first product of its kind. Promentia’s goal was to make Alzheimer’s Disease prevention tactics more easily accessible to the general public, so you can Stay You.

      In my previous post I covered Samsung’s partnership with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the Department of Veterans Affairs to host and sponsor the MIT’s Medicine Grand Hack, to foster creativity to solve some of the problems in the health care system.
      In this post I want to highlight one of the teams that participated in the hack: Insomniax. With the clarity of their focus, and how they integrated Samsung’s wearable devices in their pitch, they were able to stand out during the weekend’s activities and win the Department of Veteran’s Affairs award.
      The Insomniax team participated in the mental health and professional burnout track, and created an application that uses biometrics and self-reported data to develop personalized recommendations for veterans with mental illnesses, who have poor sleep quality.
      Their prototype highlighted the importance of having an easily accessible device that helps you tracking your daily routine and, with the help of an Artificial Intelligence system, gives you relevant advice to improve your quality of life.
      Insomniax showcasing their app
      The concept of the application they were working on was a way to combine data already collected by the Samsung Watch’s multiple sensors (things like heart rate, sleep, stress) along with a nightly questionnaire on activities/pre-sleep habits. The combined collected data then would be sent to a server with a REST API, then the system would process the data and revise the user’s recorded medical history to provide personalized recommendations on how they can get better sleep.
      The Insomniax Team
      Their demo was developed as a web app using Tizen Studio, and it was deployed on the Galaxy Watches that were made available to the Hackathon’s attendees.
      These kind of apps can take advantage of the advanced features included in the Samsung Watches, like the Human Activity Monitor, that gives you access to and record human activity data from various sensors and recorders on the device.

      Samsung Electronics is in partnership with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the Department of Veterans Affairs, Veterans Health Administration (VHA) to foster creativity and innovation to solve health care big problems, with the help of modern technology. As part of this partnership, we recently hosted the MIT Hacking Medicine Grand Hack in Washington DC.
      Just like the Boston event held in June, this hackathon differed from other developer events in a few important ways:
      The interdisciplinary focus was obvious from the moment teams were formed, just after the keynote on Friday. Feasibility and business viability were integral to all pitches. But most importantly, there was no need to code and all projects were problem-centered work or covered real user needs.
      The three-day event started on August 2nd and was hosted in Samsung’s Solutions Center in Washington D.C. During the weekend students, engineers, designers and developers participated in one of the three tracks forming groups, and bringing their diverse views and backgrounds to offer new solutions to problems that affect the lives of millions of people in America.
      These were the three tracks that participants could be part of:
      Access to health care Mental health and professional burnout Rare and orphan diseases. Each track had a winner, and sponsors and partners also awarded teams that showed promising ideas.
      Samsung provided Galaxy Note9 phones and Galaxy Watches to allow teams experiment and find out the best way to integrate the different sensors and SDKs into their own projects. We saw some creative uses of Samsung technologies and genuine desire to improve the health care system leveraging modern technology.
      The Key Watch team won the Samsung Breakthroughs That Matter Award in the Rare and Orphan Diseases track. This team was distinguished not only for the clarity of their project, but also for their enthusiasm to incorporate Samsung technologies in their pitch.
      The Key Watch team with Christopher Balcik, Samsung Vice President of Federal Government Business
      During the weekend, the team developed a way to monitor response to medication to tackle misdiagnosis of Parkinson’s disease vs drug-induced parkinsonism (DIP), which is the second most common cause for parkinsonism.

      While displaying similar symptoms, a rare disease requires an entirely separate treatment process. Additionally, up to 15% of Parkinson’s disease patients have the rare variant DIP, so, Key Watch’s solution could improve the life of tens of thousands, just in the US.
      Their envisioned system would work like this:
      A patient having parkinsonism symptoms would come in to consult with the doctor on an actionable plan for their treatment. Because Parkinson’s Disease accounts for 85% parkinsonism cases, they are likely to be classified as having Parkinson’s disease (PD). They are given treatment for PD and monitored – if their symptoms get better, as detected by Key Watch’s platform, then that would support their diagnosis. However, if the patient actually has DIP, the PD medication would have little to no effect, and through Key Watch’s continuous monitoring tool doctors can quickly intervene and pivot the treatment protocol. After enrolling on the platform, Key Watch would have continuous feedback on the patients tracked symptoms over time, which enables the doctor to effectively adjust the drug dosage. Key Watch: The full team
      The Key Watch members looked into the different sensors that the Samsung Galaxy watches could provide them, and focused on the gyroscope and the accelerometer APIs, that would give them data from a patient’s movements, including tremors and slow movement. With enough data, and medical experience, the proposed system would be able to detect the source of a patient’s movement abnormalities.
      To learn more about how you can get access to the Samsung wearable devices sensors, visit the Samsung Developer Program and start creating your own apps now.
      Stay tuned for more information about this event in the coming weeks!

      Samsung Electronics announced today that it will support the world’s first 8K HDR10+ content, partnering with major European streaming services. With this announcement, Samsung has established itself as the leader of the HDR (High Dynamic Range) specification industry. CHILI, The Explorers and MEGOGO – three key OTT (Over-the-top) service providers in Europe – will adopt 8K HDR10+ along with its support for 4K HDR10+.
      HDR10+ technology optimizes brightness and maximizes the contrast ratio, making bright areas brighter and dark areas darker. The feature is available on all UHD TV and 2019 8K TV models, including Samsung’s lineup of QLED TVs.
      “With HDR emerging as one of the most important technologies for ultra-high picture quality, our HDR10+ format enables every image to be accurately displayed on screen just as the creator intended,” said Hyogun Lee, Executive Vice President of the Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “We will continue to strengthen our industry leadership through establishing partnerships with top streaming service providers and equipping our televisions with the technology needed to support the world’s first 8K HDR10+.”
      “Our main goal in this partnership with Samsung is to offer the highest-quality content services available to our customers,” said Victor Chekanov, CEO at MEGOGO. “We will maintain our initiative in the Russian OTT service market and plan to provide dozens of HDR10+ movies to Samsung Smart TV users starting late this summer.”
      Aside from the aforementioned OTT streaming services, several other industry-leading content partners are collaborating with Samsung. Rakuten TV, Deutsche Telekom’s Magenta TV and Videociety are all expected to adopt HDR10+ support for its respective VOD services between Q4 2019 and Q1 2020. Also, Molotov, the first French OTT streaming service to offer live and on-demand TV channels all in one place, is also considering to adopt HDR10+. The growing list of premiere content partners is a testament to the industry’s commitment to the best viewing experience possible for consumers.
      HDR10+ content availability continues to expand. Recent announcements from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment debuting HDR10+ on UHD Blu-ray with “The Secret Life of Pets 2” and “Godzilla: King of the Monsters”, respectively, add to the UHD Blu-ray discs already released from Twentieth Century Fox and others.
      Since Samsung began the HDR10+ logo certification program with Panasonic and 20th Century Fox last year, 81 companies have joined the program, boosting the program’s influence in the industry. Samsung has also strengthened its effort with the new opening of an HDR10+ center in China last December, following Korea, Japan and the U.S. With TV manufacturers such as Hisense obtaining HDR10+ certification in China, the HDR10+ alliance is expected to expand even further.
      Along with HDR10+ certifications of existing TVs and smartphone products, Samsung is working to implement the program for its B2B products. For example, micro LED models such as The Wall Pro and The Wall Lux have been HDR10+ certified, and the company plans to expand the ecosystem to include Samsung’s line of LED products.
