Just the other day, we told you that Samsung was committing billions of dollars to build factories that would churn out OLED displays for future iPhone models. But Apple being Apple, the tech titan wants to find another source of OLED panels just in case Samsung's production gets cut off for one reason or another. Having a second source also means that Apple can play each company against each other to obtain better pricing. And let's face it, Apple likes to buy up as much as it can of certain components, possibly to make it harder for rivals to find a source. Consider how Apple tied up the sapphire market for the Apple iPhone 6 and Apple iPhone 6 Plus before dropping the idea of using the material.You know the game plan by now. Apple will release one phone with an AMOLED screen this year, the 10th anniversary model dubbed the Apple iPhone 8. Starting next year, all iPhone models will ship wearing an AMOLED panel. And with its 95% share in OLED, Samsung would naturally be the first … [Read more...] about Apple deciding whether to invest in LG’s OLED production?

For a while now, we've been hearing that the Galaxy S8 will come with a very special voice assistant, allegedly named Bixby. It is speculated that it would be based on software made by Viv Labs — the same developers that worked on Apple's Siri — as Samsung bought that company back in October of 2016. Early reports tout Viv as the faster and smarter new kid on the block, capable of following conversational threads and responding to complex questions, such as "Was it raining in Seattle three Thursdays ago?".Now, news has come in that Samsung continues to invest in voice recognition — Sammy and a number of other investors have given $75 million to SoundHound to help towards further developing its own Hound assistant. In case you haven't been following voice assistants — Hound made a huge splash in the tech industry when it was presented in a few teaser videos, which showcased its ability to answer complex questions, remember them, and follow the direction of a … [Read more...] about Diving deeper: Samsung continues to invest in voice recognition, pours money in SoundHound’s jug
